Richmond and especially the East coast of the United States have always been known for their vast European influence and rich history, but Virginia, besides being only for lovers, is a gifted state situated in a key location in between the deep traditions of the South and the rigid shoreline coast of the country.

Saturday night was my first night at The Vex, a venue/arts center located in Alhambra that is actually booking some of the best metal shows in Los Angeles. It is refreshing to see that somebody is trying to do something outside the show bubble that is Hollywood with its crazy traffic, overpriced parking, and tight venues.
Nocturnal Poisoning is the new solo project of Scott Conner, mastermind of the Black Metal band Xasthur. This is a little interview where we talk about his shift in the sound direction and some other interesting questions about the music and the mind of its creator.

Evil Cupcakes is when I write small album reviews with the help of a South-African Tokoloshe called “Averatu”
You can always try to chase the feeling of being lost in time, especially when summer arrives. Hazy days in L.A. like today, can be fatal. As I’m writing this, I can’t see what’s outside my window. The city is covered by a thick and pale mist and there is no desire to find out what’s out there. The day I received my copy of Other Worlds of the Mind was one of those hazy lazy, days. It was the perfect mood for me to sit down, listen and write down my thoughts about the album.
