RIGOR SARDONICOUS premiere new track at

 Today, apocalyptic doom cult Rigor Sardonicous premiere the new track " Caelum Ardere Vidistis " at heavily trafficked web-portal The track is the second to be revealed from the band's long-awaited seventh album, Praeparet Bellum, set for international release on January 23rd, 2023 via Memento Mori. Hear Rigor Sardonicous' "Caelum Ardere Vidistis" in its entirety exclusively HERE. True purveyors of aural torment, Rigor Sardonicous are one of the cultest bands of the American death metal underground. Formed in 1988, the long-standing duo of bassist Glenn Hampton and vocalist/guitarist Joseph Fogarazzo remain one of the darkest and creepiest bands calling "death metal" home. Aided by their ever-trustworthy drum-machine, Rigor Sardonicous are utterly lifeless and excruciatingly slow, almost daring the listener to find any "fun" in their all-devouring void of inertia. You could almost qualify their music(k) as doom-death,

Iron Asparagus exclusive interview

  1-Hello and welcome to Metal Music Midwest, first off, thanks for taking the time to do the interview, could you give our readers a brief description of the group? Where is the band from?     The origin of the band name. An iron asparagus was a spear used by some sedentary tribes.

Metal Music Midwest started back in 2013 Here are my thoughts

 This blog started back in 2013. I was very novice about blogging and it just seemed like another place to promote music. I use to call this blog Artemorbid reviews. I began by posting photos from concerts I attended but then quickly shifted to writing music reviews for heavy metal bands. The blog to me was a Fanzine but in a digital format. Thru the first couple of years I began to work with other fanzines that were still doing print. AEA zine was one of the first. I would get cd's in exchange for a review. In time I also started to do interviews for goth scene models.
