Vôdûn - V11, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, 25.06.2017
by Ivor | 18.07
Where were you on the night of June the 27th between 9:30PM and 10:30PM? What? Where? No, wait, don't tell me! I really don't care.

The Magnum Opus of Tim "Ripper" Owens
by ScreamingSteelUS | 24.06
Back in 2011, when he reviewed Charred Walls Of The Damned's Cold Wind On Timeless Days, Doc Godin made a statement about Tim "Ripper" Owens that wheedled its way into my head and has stuck with me ever since. Our erstwhile editor-in-chief observed that Owens, while an accomplished vocalist and an established personality within metal, is "known better for his talents than any type of legacy with dynamite albums."
