GIMME METAL T-Shirt Club – GIMME METAL’s August t-shirt design is “Void Existence” by Justin Bartlett (aka VBERKVLT)! This one highlights how Bartlett awakens apparitions as ambiguous as those creatures created by Edgar Allen Poe or ideas fostered by Aleister Crowley. This fantastic black and white display tells a story through the running ink and staccato lines that build the remnants of a person. It gives off a poppy crispiness almost like the aesthetic version of listening to an old record. Visit: found.ee/GimmeMetalTshirtClub for more info. Bartlett was recently diagnosed with cancer. All GIMME proceeds from this shirt and any tips sent during the checkout process will be sent to him. You can also donate directly to Bartlett ‘s GoFundMe: https://gofund.me/9b10adeb.

Ophidian I Guest DJ Special – Iceland’s Ophidian I creates brutal, hypertechnical death, moving in seamlessly-packed, clean flurries of riffs, and while that alone in concept is staggering to behold, this all isn’t just dazzle. Soaring compositions augmented by evolving structures and grisly, powerful vocals make this a buzzing machine of pure intensity and sucks you into all the elements, not just sealing you on the outside to observe the flash and mastery of what’s happening here. One spin through Desolate, recently released via Season Of Mist, and it’s immediately apparent that Ophidian I operate at the near-insanity end of the musical and compositional spectrums. Tracks like “Diamonds,” “Spiral To Oblivion,” “Unfurling The Crescent Moon,” and “Jupiter” reveal a professorial yet savage mien. Indeed, death metal has its technical subgenre, and Ophidian I confidently reside alongside their fellow specialists, but Desolate offers something the others don’t. Songs. Pieces that are designed to earworm surreptitiously and indelibly. Join founding guitarist Simon Thorolfsson for a GIMME METAL takeover this Tuesday!

I am a devoted husband and father. I have been a voracious horror fan since the early age of 5 and metal fan since I was 14. I watch all horror films but my great loves are classic horror films: Universal Monsters, Werewolves, Hammer Horror and an all-around affinity for things that go bump in the night! I'm also a huge fan of extreme metal music.
