Reviews: Godhunter/Anakim Split 7"

By: Garviel Loken

Two of Tucson's heaviest hitting bands have come together to produce a limited edition 7" vinyl that features one new track from each artist. Featuring some insanely tasteful artwork, the cover for each artist is probably worth the purchase price alone, and we haven't even gotten down to brass tacks about the actual music yet. This excellent art definitely reinforces the age old idea that whats on the cover can enhance the listening experience and provide a basis for kick starting the imagination.

Southwest Terror Fest Round Up (Freedom Assault, Conqueror Worm, Sex Prisoner, Casket Birth)

We're back with our second installment of the Southwest Terror Fest Round Up. With Tucson's annual metal party breathing down our neck, we want to take a minute to introduce you to four more bands that you might not be acquainted with quite yet. Ranging from punk to doom to power violence to black metal, you'd be hard pressed to find a better representation of what is brewing in Tucson recently. Garviel Loken scoured the nether regions of Bandcamp and beyond to bring you these four burners. Take a minute and check these bands out, then come check them out in person at The Rock in Tucson on October 10th through the 13th! Prepare your livers and bring lots of beer money!
