Mardi Gras is tomorrow, so I hope you have your beer, beads, and creepy baby Jesus cakes on standby.

Days of Darkness Festival in Baltimore has a full lineup.


UK Tech-fest is a thing.


Here’s the lineup for a festival in Nevada.


Non-Chinese black metal band Ghost Bath has a new song out. Album out April 21.


Another slowish news week it seems. What have you found?

    There was one of those King’s Cakes in the lounge last week. I found the baby, but having never seen a King’s Cake nor heard of the tradition before, I was a little unnerved by the plastic creature lurking in my slice.

    • Is that some kind of . . . (gulp) . . . fertility ritual?

      • Joaquin Stick

        I think so. You eat the plastic baby, then out comes a bigger real baby.

        • Out of your butt?

          • Count_Breznak

            C-Section.

      • Rain Poncho W.

        I sure hope not. Not ready to have a baby yet.

        • Hahahahahahahahahaha you’re gonna be a daddy. My condolences.

          • Rain Poncho W.

            I’m not raising this child alone. It takes a poop fetish site to raise a child.

          • I’ll be the semi-estranged uncle who gives it booze when no one’s looking.

          • Sid Vicious Promos

            Can I be the cousin who is too busy being a Deadhead to know the baby exists?

          • Howard Dean

            Nah, I think you get to be the cousin that’s not invited to the reunion because you can’t legally be within 200 yards of children.

          • Sid Vicious Promos

            HD plz!

      • GoatForest

        Eat our babies!

    • CyberneticOrganism

      It’s a little bizarre.

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    Days of Darkness looks exquisite.

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    I find the fact that Ghostbath is now on Nuclear Blast to be pretty funny.

    • Joaquin Stick

      Or Nucrear Brast, as they would have pronounced it a few years ago.

      • Howard Dean

        Was Grim Kim behind the “Ghost Bath is from China” thing, or am I thinking of the fake Middle Eastern bands she promoted? The Kim Kelly journalism gaffes are getting crisscrossed in my head.

        • Joaquin Stick

          I’m not really sure about all the details, but I know the band was pushing that false narrative for a bit.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Yeah, I’m pretty sure it was the band that had the world convinced.

          • Howard Dean

            That’s so weird. What a strange angle to take. But hey, I guess it worked for them, though. I doubt they would’ve received as much hype/attention had they just said “Uh, we’re a post-black metal band from North Dakota.”

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Precisely. All a big publicity stunt, if you ask me. Claiming to be from somewhere else only works if you’re GWAR.

          • How great can we truly consider their music to be if so many years later all anyone ever talks is about is how they’re not Chinese?

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            That’s a really good point. The fixation was initially that China produced a band like this and that the emotion and feel of the music was a product of their lifestyle and surroundingd. Then you find out they were lying and all thoughts are lost.

          • Count_Breznak

            Now wait until you hear in how many battles Mannowar actually took part in….

          • Shakes 999

            Outstanding.

          • GoatForest

            Honestly, I think that their music is pretty boring.

          • Hans Moleman

            Or Ghoul.

          • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

            I think I read that it was less them pushing it than just running with the mistake once it had already been made. Still pretty lame-ass behaviour though. Personally I think they’re pretty good at what they do (particularly live, some killer Nattramn style wailing) and never needed a gimmick.

          • HessianHunter

            They claimed later it was a journalistic mistake they ran with, but years before, they had sent Grim Kim an email in (fake) broken English claiming to be Chinese. That’s pretty exploitative and lame, in my book. Luckily for them their music is very very good so I’ll reluctantly still give them props for being a sweet band and will probably go see them live.

          • Shakes 999

            Yeah I love the music. Don’t care about the Chinese thing. I did like it better when they were faceless thou.

    • The new song is . . .
      . . .
      . . .
      . . . kind of awful. Did they always have this happitty-crappitty Playstation Prog shit in their music?

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        I only listened to a few songs when the hypetrain rolled through and wasn’t too impressed so… *shrugs*

    • Sir Ukkometso The Based

      Fitting, imo. NB has poopy bands.

  • Howard Dean

    New Disma is always welcome. Digging the new stuff. Was hoping for an album (and something on CD!), but any new music from those dudes is good news. I think all of the specialty colored vinyls up for preorder have already sold out. Not sure if the standard black has sold out, too.

  • Primordial Chaos

    That Disma track is solid and I have some news to share with you:

    Sarkrista: Black Metal in the vein of Satanic Warmastaer, Aegrus, here’s a song:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DnL4IUfGwE
    Cemetary Urn: Black/Death:https://cemetery-urn.bandcamp.com/album/cemetery-urn

  • Sid Vicious Promos

    Yay, Captain Beyond!

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Dude, Cirith Ungol, Manilla Road and Captian Beyond need to tour together.

      • Sid Vicious Promos

        I’d pay so much to see that.

        • Howard Dean

          “CUM 2 POUGHKEEPSIE!”

          -JJD

          • Sid Vicious Promos

            If it came here I’d weep so violently.

      • Howard Dean

        I’d personally go with a Manilla Road, Cirith Ungol, and Slough Feg tour. I think that tour would corrupt space-time with its awesomeness.

        • Sid Vicious Promos

          Considering Captain Beyond only has one original member that would make sense. The original member is a beast of a drummer and he wrote a lot of their debut.

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          If we’re making dream lineups , then yeah. I was just basing it off of DoD

  • CyberneticOrganism

    King Cake: Choke On Jesus

  • DARKBEARD

    that Ghost Bath be pretty hot garbage. Its a shame because i did like Funeral and there was some not terrible stuff of Golden Number

    new Disma tho ~>>>>>>>>>>>>

  • HessianHunter

    My review of that new Lungs vid: needs more pretty lady running in forest/10

  • Hans Moleman

    Listening to some older Oxbow now. Not sure what I expected, but not this.

    Not this.

  • Waynecro

    GHOST BATH!!!

    • Shakes 999

      Thank you. Finally someone not trashing the band. Was my favorite album of 2015 and most of 16.

      • Waynecro

        Ghost Bath uses melodies to very strong effect. Some of those jams just punch me right in the feels.

  • Zac Melvin-McNutt

    DISMA!!!!
