Review: Venomous Maximus

Houston’s Venomous Maximus performs heavy rock from an earlier time. ‘The Living Dead,’ from the band’s 2010 debut 7”, hearkens back to a pre-Pepper COC. Everything is recorded louder than everything else and Gregg Higgins sing-speak-chant vocal style seeths with barely contained aggression. The song’s bridge dives into the even earlier tones of first-wave heavy psychedelia. A-side ‘Give Up The Witch,’ meanwhile, takes these elements and adds ...

The Jibbies & Loond Show - Episode 023 - The First Name of Uriah

And then there were three.....Jibbies and Loond got a special in-studio visit from Houston ambient/noise/handmade music fixture J.D. Franklin this week, who was kind enough to first ply our duo with The Kracken and then share his thoughts on a wide variety of topics during the cast. The expanded crew weighed in on the late-2011 State of Metal, Paul Bostaph's post-Testament path, Kill Devil Hill (feat. Rex Brown, Vinny Appice, Dewey Bragg, and Mark Zavon), and Godflesh's upcoming appearance at Maryland DeathFest.
Lots of other twists and turns occurred along the way, so strap in and put it on.

F1: Countdown to Austin 2012 - Brazilian Grand Prix

Well, that's a wrap. The last race of the season didn't go entirely to script (my version: Sebastian Vettel leading from start to finish to close the year in much the way he ran it), but in so doing served as the second consecutive reminder of how thin the margin of even Vettel's dominating performance was. He didn't repeat Abu Dhabi's DNF, but a gimpy gearbox detected on Lap 16 forced him from the lead on Lap 30 and left his point average over the last two events at 9. Project that over the cou...
