In this entry of Blasphemous Meals, Ola Mazzuca covers three recipes from the Hellbent For Cooking book (Bazillion Points) that come from here at home in Canada! Three very different options are presented here, two dinners and a desert, from three very different bands that have been a part of the Canadian metal underground over the past thirty years (Dissection, Blasphemy and Bastardator). Check them out!
Hellbound Metal: “After 18 years of experience fusing the Gothenburg model with grooves inspired by the classics, Soilwork haven’t lost their touch.”
Hypocrisy aren’t zombies, but their decade-plus career has spawned fantastic music for the Swedish melodic scene.

Without the soy sauce Wintersun need, Time I is not seamless. But like vegetables in a good stir fry, their talent is fresh and inviting. This band has been harvested to think outside the box, even if it means adding a little Hoisin.
Raise Your Fist can keep a venue or party going all night. The record doesn’t show Doro in a new light, but depicts her self-respect through some seriously fetching tracks. At 48 years old, Doro is still hot in leather, strikes chords and bakes like a boss. Horns to her.

As December’s gift-buying chaos falls upon us, rest assured that shopping for your favourite metalhead doesn’t have to be a taxing chore. Whether you’re a bewildered dear one, a metal fan buying for a fellow metal lover, or looking for a treat for yourself, we Hellbounders have a few holiday shopping ideas that might make your task a little easier.
In this entry of Blasphemous Meals, reader discretion is advised to those of you who are vegetarian, vegan and on and on and on. You’ll find six saucy, savoury, satanically delicious dishes that are from three different carnivorous groups: beef, fish, poultry and pork. They are warm and welcoming as you retreat from the frostbitten woodlands in the coming months – at least for our Canadian Hellbound readers.
