Kevin Hufnagel’s ukelele compositions

PostEditor Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Music on Thursday 19 May 2011

My friend Kevin Hufnagel, who plays guitar in instrumental tech metal band Dysrhythmia with Krallice’s Colin Marston as well as the new line-up of legendary death metal band Gorguts, has been composing pieces for ukulele. Hufnagel is probably the only person in the world who can make a ukulele and a popsicle stick sound metal. […]

Deafheaven

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Music on Tuesday 24 August 2010

With bands like Krallice, Liturgy, and now San Francisco-based Deafheaven firmly establishing a subgenre of shimmering, transcendent black metal, many metal purists are throwing the tag ‘hipster’ around a little too freely.

But then I snapped out of it and realized that I had to at least go one of the three days because I’d be a big poser if I didn’t. I chose to go Sunday so I could catch my friends Krallice play. I also got to see legendary bands like Aura Noir, Bolt Thrower, and Sigh, many of whom hadn’t played in the US in decades if at all.

Liturgy

By Gerry Mak in New Music on Friday 1 May 2009

A few years ago, no one could imagine any good black metal bands coming out of New York City. Then Krallice hit the scene, giving the corpse-painted masses hope, and now, Liturgy is poised to affirm Brooklyn as a new epicenter of awesome Black Metal. The one-time solo act fronted by Hunter Hunt is now […]
