Live Report: Incantation at Europa, Brooklyn, November 20

First band on: Is it…oh, it’s Mortician! That’s “Zombie Apocalypse!”

Live Report: Dimmu Borgir at Terminal 5, New York, November 8

Number of times I covet Grutle Kjellson’s moustache: 35.

Newsworthy artistic choice: Dimmu Borgir recently changed the cover art for their newest album, Abrahadabra, only a few weeks after it was released. The change was from a multi-eyed industrial gargoyle man to the exact same image with a skull instead of a man’s face.

Recent suggestion heard by this author: The change was because the man’s face looked like he was blowing a dude.

Chris Krovatin is the author of the young-adult novels Heavy Metal & You and Venomous, as well as Revolvermag.com's “Final Six” blog. The latter book was the inspiration for Deadlocke, a one-shot published by Dark Horse Comics. He is also the vocalist New York sludge-metal band Flaming Tusk. Feel free to follow him on Twitter (@bloodinmystool), but honestly, it’s mostly just dick and weed jokes.

On Sunday, I went to the Gwar (left), who played with Dirge Within and Mobile Deathcamp. I brought my girlfriend with me. Here’s what happened:
