Adam Cox’s EXTREME SCENE – October 2016

Welcome to “Extreme Scene” Extreme Scene is a new blog on all things Extreme Metal.  Wikipedia views this as “a loosely defined umbrella term for a number of related heavy metal music subgenres that have developed since the early 1980s.

Voivod at Call The Office (Concert Review)

Voivod at Call The Office (Concert Review)

Show Review: Voivod – Call The Office June 21, 2016 Finally, I have seen Voivod. This may surprise you, for all my ramblings regarding my taste of pop-sensible, hook-oriented hard rock that is more along the vein of sleaze and glam. I do have a love of heavy metal music. Such as Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax and the other of the “big four”. Throw in Suicidal Tendencies and D.R.I, I am a skater after all, and…

SLAYER!!! – Live At The Myth (Concert Review)

SLAYER!!! – Live At The Myth (Concert Review)

Say it with me. “SLAAAAAAAAYERRRRRR!!!!” So Slayer came to town. Great news for those with a bullhorn, a perverted love for Jesus and nothing but free time on a Friday night.

Plus there’s usually butt loads of upside down crosses. I was 18 when…

Slayer Is Repentless

Slayer Is Repentless

re·pent verb: to feel or express sincere regret or remorse about one’s wrongdoing or sin. re·pent-less  adverb: the opposite of that shit. Deals with the Devil are as much a part of Rock-lore as sex and drugs.  I was seven when I first heard KISS.  Since then I’ve purchased every record they released.  I was 19 when I first discovered Slayer. Since then I’ve purchased every record they released.  I’m 44.  That’s the real deal…
