“Only first wave is real,” say first wave black metal fans who endlessly yearn to re-live 80s and 90s first wave black metal. Guess what? First wave black metal should have never met its demise years ago. So, without further ado, we present a rarefied find on bandcamp in the form of the band Malleus and its self-released cassette tape called Storm of Witchcraft.
From Nicosia, Cyprus comes the band Nekhrah, a death metal band with a full-length album entitled Cosmic Apostasy. Playing death metal focused on riffs, a band focused on making a lasting impact on the scene, Nekhrah hopes to impress listeners tired of bands that don’t play quality catchy riffery. Just sample track five, ‘The Face of Pain’ at the 1:10 mark to decide whether Nekhrah won’t satisfy your cravings for well-executed intense death metal to die for.
In Twilight’s Embrace has just released a new full-length album entitled Vanitas. The band’s latest effort is a more personal one, closely inspired by the recent deaths of some family members of the band. Vanitas is an exploration into mysteries unanswered since the dawn of civilization – the frailty of flesh, and the uncertainty of existence after death.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
