There was a time when if you dared to merge an Iron Maiden-esque dual guitar harmony with barking hardcore vocals, you'd be severely scolded from the nearest mosh pit. But the tides had certainly turned by the early 21st century, when bands that grew up on both musical styles (which back in the '80s, were about as polar opposite worlds as you could get) began making waves. Case in point, Iscariot, and their 2006 debut effort, Lifeless Design. Singer Derrick Harding has obviously studied both Phil Anselmo and also the leading death metal growlers, as he alternates between both throughout the album's ten tracks (especially on the album opener, "The Gates of the Flames"). On the other hand, Iscariot's music is equal parts death metal and prog metal -- tricky tempos and technically complex bits abound throughout. While there are indeed other outfits that mine similar terrain (Lamb of God, Unearth, etc.), it's not like this style is aiming for the top of the album charts. It's obviously all about the love of metal for the members of Iscariot, and for that, we salute you!

10 Legends of the Blues

For over a century, blues 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.

Guns N' Roses, the greed justifies the means

As the sales of the legendary Appetite For Destruction approach the 20 million copies in the United States, who remembers today that it almost never saw the light of day? Not only the bonds uniting Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler were fragile, but fate seemed set against this band which seemed to be slow to catch on to Mötley Crüe, Ratt, Cinderella or Dokken. This is almost as a kindness that David Geffen had accepted to welcome this homeless band on his label. He would not regret his altruism…

Betty Davis, The Funk Panther

Without her, there would be no Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse or Janelle Monáe! Gone to heaven, Betty Davis remains the pioneer of feline soul sisters. The funk goddess par excellence. She was also one of the leading ladies in a certain Miles Davis' life, whose wife she would be for a short time. But who really were you Betty?
