Following a somewhat formative but still pretty respectable EP in 1991's Human Waste, Long Island, NY's Suffocation really broke through to the underground metal masses with their first full-length assault, Effigy of the Forgotten, in 1991. Delivering a truly devastating display of technical death metal bordering on grindcore, this incredibly influential release opened the doors for an entire generation of extreme metal miscreants who would subsequently make their uncompromising sounds the prevalent template for East Coast metal in the '90s. Matching outrageously guttural vocals with a bottom-heavy guitar foundation, spewed forth at blistering speed and unparalleled brutality, Effigy's overwhelming, claustrophobic, and, well suffocating rush, belied a surprisingly developed and, dare we say, "sophisticated" sense of songwriting. Crushing examples like the title track, "Infecting the Crypts" and the masterful "Seeds of the Suffering" probably frightened many unprepared listeners with their unapologetic onslaughts, but Suffocation's quick rise to prominence proved that even more were willing to endure the initial shock in order to appreciate the band's maniacally complex time changes and the lead and rhythm guitar acrobatics (notably in the brilliantly titled "Reincremation"). Not for the weak of will even today, Effigy of the Forgotten, is a death metal tour de force.

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

The Beatles in 12 Albums

Barely seven years spent in the studio. An immeasurable heritage that still has a very strong influence today. The Beatles are a unique case in the history of popular music. The sixties music scene was an era of huge transition. With the Fab Four- helped by Bob Dylan on the other side of the Atlantic- rock music left its carefree adolescence and began adulthood. The four bubbly, naive boys from Liverpool would be transformed into independent artists, a life we follow through their discography.

10 Legends of the Blues

June 21 marked 20 years since the death of a king of the blues: John Lee Hooker. But the blues didn't follow this giant into the grave. This genre, which has been being recorded for over a century, is still nourishing pop music of all kinds and producing great records. It's time to take a look back at the classics with ten historic blues musicians.
