Doom | PS4
Released: May 13th 2016
Developer/Publisher: Bethesda
Grade: 5 out of 5 meatballs
Reviewed by: Pawl Schwartz

is a game that deserves the self-titled reboot, which, when dealing with a game as historic and genre-changing as the Doom franchise, is saying a whole hell of a lot. It’s a name older and bigger than Half-Life, that actually delivers sequels at a slow but steady pace, putting so much work and industrial-love into each edition that we never have to worry about a Duke Nukem Forever type situation happening, despite id Software’s long and messy history.

Everything about Doom is just so viscerally loud, violent, and smooth, all delivered with that un-nameable Doom-ness about it, updated quite perfectly from the graphical hell that the original game looks like nowadays.

Electric Wizard
Where: Metro
When: April 7th, 2015

It's been some time since I’ve been to a quality metal show.  Sure, Marilyn Manson earlier this year was awesome, but I personally don’t consider him to be metal (especially if we’re talking about his new album). So I knew that if I was going to do a live metal show the right way, I would have to go see Electric Wizard at my favorite Chicago venue, the Metro. The results? I made the best decision ever. I’m still putting my melted face back together and my ears are still ringing — when it hurts this good, you know you’ve been to a kickass show. I’ve never been afforded the chance to see Electric Wizard, so this show blew my mind apart. From the opening bass strums of openers Satan’s Satyrs to the closing dissonance of Electric Wizard’s “Funeralopolis,” this show was a relentless torrent of the most evil sounding psychedelic doom metal, and it hardly could’ve been better.
