Musical Ramblings: Making metal
This week, I'm giving you all a quick double shot of metal. Here we go! Behemoth Ezkaton EP It seems that Behemoth mastermind, Nergal, doesn't stop. Not only has he and his band toured relentlessly, they're busy writing the new reco... Read more

Around the Ring: Vince punted by Orton
I have to start off by saying that this has probably been the least hyped Royal Rumble PPV that I have ever seen in my many, many years watching wrestling. Actually, I've watched wrestling since the very first Rumble and last Monday's return ... Read more

Around the Ring: HBK beats Cena graying angle
TNA...(shakes head), TNA, you poor bastards. Not only did you have a subpar card going into your first PPV of the year, I don't think you could ask for more to go wrong during the show. Now that I gave my sympathies to TNA, if you didn't see... Read more

Musical Ramblings: Clutch puts out new disc, DVD
Clutch Full Fathom Five If there's one certain thing in life, it's this: when you buy any Clutch release, you'll definitely get your money's worth...and be rocked at the same time. This release is (I'm sure) Clutch's fourt... Read more

Around the Ring: Waiting for HBK to snap
Wow! So much has happened in the WWE since our “break,” so here's a recap of some major angles and then a quick look at the upcoming TNA PPV! - Jeff Hardy finally did it! He became WWE champion! I was so happy when I saw this go down... Read more

Around the Ring: Survivor Series a dud
Well, a really crappy Survivor Series has come and gone and we have two new champions. I'm really surprised that they let John Cena pin Chris Jericho considering Jericho had Cena in submission moves for over half the match! I'm glad that they... Read more

Musical Ramblings: Top metal
Seeing how this is a countdown/top 10 issue and I don't have my picks for top 10 music releases of the year ready yet (never until mid January), I decided to countdown six bands that you should be listening to. Some of these bands may not be arou... Read more

Around the Ring: Jericho to triumph over Cena?
Considering RAW's final show before the Survivor Series PPV was a piece of trash and once again did absolutely nothing to hype this PPV (besides shove John Cena's return down our throats), I figure that I'd give my predictions on this yea... Read more

Good grades for new Gears of War
Gears of War 2 I know the game just came out, but it was so good that it didn't take me long to get through it. I fear how quickly I would have went through it (at the hardest difficulty available when you first load up the game) if it wasn... Read more

Musical Ramblings: Filth's new Fall release
Cradle of Filth Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder It wouldn't be a fall issue of the Interrobang without a Cradle of Filth review, would it? Well, the band actually released nothing new last year, so two years without any mention of them i... Read more

Around the Ring: Picks for next PPV
Well, another Raw and Smackdown before a PPV has come and gone and once again the shows were nothing more than filler. Both shows actually did NOTHING to try to entice anyone to buy the PPV. I still can't believe that WWE is expecting people to ... Read more

Musical Ramblings: Slipknot's latest
Slipknot All Hope Is Lost I know that there are a lot of haters in the metal community that target Slipknot. Cries of “They're not metal” to “gimmicky crap” have resonated throughout the band's career. Their last... Read more

Around the Ring: Jericho for the Heavyweight win

Finally PPV is worth the money
So many negative things are flying around the WWE this week (or at least as of the time of writing this.) Smackdown was another sub par show and I don't know why I continue to say that week after week. Mind you, it was nice to see the RAW presenc... Read more

Game Review: Tekken 5: Who's the boss?
Yes, I know that Soul Caliber 3 has arrived, but I haven't had the chance to play it yet so I decided to take a look at one of the other fighters that have made an impact on the gaming world. Tekken Tag Tournament was the first game for the PS2 t... Read more

Colon doctors too raw for RAW
Smackdown, oh Smackdown! Are you trying to get attention by having RAW superstars show up on your show? Shouldn't you have had more attention by having former RAW superstars on your show now like Chris Benoit, Christian and Randy Orton? Oh yeah, ... Read more

DVD Review: Annoyance, not tension caused by new horror flick
We all need more horror in our lives this time of year, right? Sure we do! That's why I needed to see High Tension. It's the movie that Lions Gate picked up so we could see it in our part of the world. High Tension was shot in France, so t... Read more

Album Review: Fiery concept for debut
A Dozen Furies is the band that won the first ever Battle for Ozzfest contest last year. I never paid much attention to the whole Ozzfest competition, because I figured it really wouldn't introduce me to any bands with substance. Boy, was I wrong... Read more

Smackdown PPV not worth the dough
I'd like to offer props to Tony Vancouver for covering for me last week, especially since I wasn't too impressed or motivated to write about wrestling last week. Not only was the Smackdown-brand PPV mind numbing, but so was the second RAW bac... Read more

Gaming Review: Road rage for gamers

Album Review: New Static-X album leaves other attempts in the shadows
The fourth studio album from the electronic/technologically fused metal outfit Static-X arrived during the summer months and with it brought the harder edge back to the band that I thought was missing from their last CD, Shadow Zone. If you are a fa... Read more

Album review: Means to an End is one Biohazard you shouldn't avoid
Biohazard was one of the contributing forces in today's hardcore music scene. With the release of Urban Discipline in the early 90's and State of the Union Address afterwards, it seemed like nothing could stop the mighty pissed off hardcore/m... Read more

Killadelphia is the perfect example of concert DVD perfection
I love concert DVDs when they're done properly. I like the camera to be moving around, but not too crazy or fast. I love to hear crystal clear sound pumping through the 5.1s and not some camcorder audio. I love to see the band backstage and al... Read more
