Heavy Metal Chris recounts some of his favorite metal moments from 2012–like Chicken Man at MDF! Love it!


2012 has been a hell of a year here at DCHeavyMetal.com, in the area’s metal scene, and in the world of metal overall. As usual around this time of year, I like to make a post with a wrap up of the things that have gone on throughout the year, or at least those that I can remember. This year has been DCHeavyMetal.com’s best year by far for site traffic and numbers, and that is all thanks to you who keep reading this site and telling your friends about it. DCHM requires a lot of my time, and I don’t get paid for this, so if you want to donate some beer/camera gear money to me you can do so via Paypal (even if you don’t have a Paypal account) by going here.

Patricia Thomas manages several bands I like. Here’s some news from one.


After 18 years, one EP and five full-length albums which have placed CREST OF DARKNESS firmly at the top of the Extreme Metal genre, the Norwegian masters are back with their most complete, extreme and intense release so far. The ten-track album, titled “In the Presence of Death”, is the band’s sixth full-length release and amply demonstrates that CREST OF DARKNESS are masters of the genre both in terms of writing and musicianship.  It is, in fact, an album that has been described by many as the very essence of Extreme Metal.

Track listing for “In the Presence of Death”, which is set for release on My Kingdom Music on the 25th February is as follows:

1. Intro
2. In The Presence Of Death
3. Demon Child
4. Redemption
5. The Priest From Hell
6. Welcome To My Funeral
7. Womb Of The Wolf
8. Vampire Dreams
9. From…
