Seris is a mathy metal band with a footing in technical death metal that has found a way to blend all of that into something far more accessible than either would suggest. There is a groove and fluidity underlying the band's sound that gives the heaviness a paradoxical kind of grace not heard often ... More >>
CHUCK RAGAN @ SUMMIT MUSIC HALL | SAT, 4/13/13 Chuck Ragan first made his mark as the frontman of Hot Water Music, one of the more highly influential punk acts to emerge in the '90s.

LOW @ LARIMER LOUNGE | FRI, 3/29/13 Since its inception in 1993, Low has created a body of work characterized by a fragile intensity.

Alright, how many times have you driven past that dude on the corner, the one twirling his sign like a madman, and thought to yourself Wow! That dude is rocking out. Wonder what the hell he's listening to? Wonder no more. Mystery solved. It's Slayer. At least that's what this particular gentleman wa ... More >>
What are you doing this Saturday night? Cancel it. Now. No really. Take my word for it: Whatever you've got planned, I can guarantee it's gonna be lame as shit compared to this -- well, unless you're all set to be launched into space or something. That would probably be a little bit cooler. But outs ... More >>
10. SNOW THA PRODUCT @ ROXY THEATRE | SAT, 2/16 It may at first seem easy to dismiss Snow Tha Product as another Iggy Azalea or Kreayshawn-level gimmick because of her gender and unconventional appearance, but it gets harder and harder the more you listen to her. Make no mistake, Snow can ride a bea ... More >>

We've received word that Die Antwoord is finally making its way to Denver on Monday, August 6, along with dates with Jack White, Andrew Bird, Sublime with Rome, Five ... More >>
Metal is often stereoptyped as being a violent genre. And while violence is a indeed a common theme in the lyrics of many bands -- and granted, even the concept of mosh pits is violent -- when you combine that with the violence we're all exposed to in movies, TV and video games, it's easy for metal- ...

Aaron ThackerayThis should be pretty killer: In support of their latest albums, Heritage and The Hunter, Opeth and Mastodon -- two acts that recently headlined the Ogden Theatre and are certainly no strangers to the Mile High City -- are preparing to hit the road together on the aptly named H ...

COREY TAYLOR at the GOTHIC THEATRE | 11/19/11This past Saturday at the Gothic, fans were treated to a softer side of Corey Taylor, the charismatic frontman of Slipknot and Stone Sour.

Dark Castle (due tonight at the Larimer Lounge, with Yob and Clinging to the Trees of a Forest Fire) from St. Augustine, Florida, is often lumped in with doom or death metal -- or whatever heavy music seems to be at least a few steps removed from mainstream metal. But the eclectic blend of so ... More >>
J.D. CroniseThe last time I got a contact high was in September, when Sleep played the Gothic Theatre. So it was only appropriate that my next contact high came while talking with J.D. Cronise of the Sword, another great metal band, about fifteen minutes after the Austin-based act finished it ... More >>
Tom MurphySwells COLLAPSE AND SWELLS With Barnacle, Reproacher and Clinging to the Trees of a Forest Fire 04.30.11 | Blast-O-Mat The pedigree of Barnacle is fairly impressive (former members of Elucidarius and Ascaris and Nick from Cephalic Carnage), but the music stands on its own. If guys with ... More >>
Between The Buried And Me (playing tonight at Summit Music Hall with Job For A Cowboy, Cephalic Carnage and The Ocean) are seasoned veterans of the metalcore genre. Forming in 2000, the post-hardcore leaning band's prog-rock tendencies are what really sets it apart from a scene now saturated ... More >>
Stephanie CabralBorn a year after MTV's inception and surviving the Headbanger's Ball-era, Death Angel (playing tonight at the Larimer Lounge with Four Horsemen and Steel Blades of Vengeance) is an integral part of thrash metal's history.

Aaron ThackerayChino Moreno of the DeftonesLast night at Red Rocks, Mastodon, the Deftones and Alice In Chains got it on for a one-of-a-kind mountain metal sandwich, the kind of awesome threesome you usually only hear about, rarely experience and talk about for years to come. We sent our resi ... More >>
It's been a few years, and we've missed this band. Sure, Cephalic Carnage has held to a fairly steady formula in its now-eighteen-year career, but oh, what a formula it is: Coupling punishing metal jabs that hit like a fat man swinging a blunt object with breakdowns of insane technical mast ...

Perhaps you've heard by now about the "riot" that happened a few days ago in New York surrounding a free concert featuring Drake and Hanson. Weird that there was a riot at a concert featuring two of maybe the blandest performers ever to exist. Weirder still is that Hanson and Drake were even perform ... More >>

All right, the Tauntaun contest is over. Today's Friday, and we've picked the winners as promised. Thanks to everyone who entered.
