[Tin Wyrm] 005

I want to thank everyone for the cake and also reading Tape Wyrm’s 50th article on metal elitism. Though I did hope for more bottles being thrown, I feel everything went orderly. Only one person went to the hospital and that was for minor lacerations. Now that all the champagne...

Tape Wyrm XLII: The Exquisite Death of Post Metal

Atmospheric Sludge / Post Metal (1999-2002) I wanted to do a post metal article for a while. I also wanted to really find out what atmospheric sludge was and if it differed from post metal. Post metal, quite simply, is the combination of heavy metal and post rock. If you...
