By: Evan Harms I don’t ordinarily review shows that happen at The Workshoppe for a couple reasons. One being that I book shows there, another being that my band plays and practices there, and a third that it’s my home away from home.

By: Evan Harms The original thesis for the black metal of Darkthrone and Burzum was a revolt against the Christian colonialism that destroyed pagan traditions in Scandinavia, hence the whole church-burning thing and pagan imagery (goats, pentacles, etc.) becoming inseparable from black metal in popular culture.

Music as a […]

By: Evan Harms Album: II Artist: Gay Panic Defence Rating:      Gay Panic Defence’s second album, eloquently titled “II” brings a new torchbearer to the queercore movement.
