#albumoftheday / REVIEW: ANGELUS APATRIDA: HIDDEN EVOLUTION

Angelus Apatrida is a thrash metal band hailing from Albacete, Spain. It was formed in 2000 as more of a straightforward heavy metal band leaning in the power metal direction, but they gradually shifted gears and ventured into thrash territory.

#albumoftheday / REVIEW: MARILYN MANSON: THE PALE EMPEROR

Marilyn Manson, the self-proclaimed God of Fuck, has returned with his ninth studio album, The Pale Emperor, and it’s a very good thing. A very good thing indeed. Or it’s a bad thing, depending on who you ask. I’m sure extreme right wing zealots are interpreting its release as a sign of the...
