Death Metal Bands – an Unusual Type of Musicians

Death metal bands are a category of troupes that are commonly valued in the heavy metal groups, but simultaneously very questionable outside of those small communities.

Cinco de Mayo: A Look into a Mixed Holiday’s Background

Since it’s almost the beginning of May and in the U.S. that means Cinco de Mayo will soon be here, perhaps now is a good time to delve a bit into the background of this odd holiday.

5 Great Cover Bands You Should Check Out

Cover songs are great for many reasons. Some are related to the original song or band that’s being covered, and others are connected with the new band that’s doing the covering.

Farewell, Gabriel Garcia Marquez

The much-loved writer and journalist Gabriel Garcia Marquez passed away a bit over a week ago, on the 17th of April, after struggling for a long time with the ravages of a degenerative disease.

10 Software Pioneers of the 80s

The '80s are apparently back in style with a lot of nostalgia-capitalizing ventures are bringing them back with a glamorous vengeance. With that said, it's about time we do a different kind of excursion into the 80s.

Weird Easter and Passover Traditions around the World

Since it’s that time of the year again and most of us have, by now, finished stuffing their faces with chocolate bunnies and stollen-like cakes and confections, maybe we should consider that this holiday doesn’t mean the same thing for everyone celebrating it, even within the same religion.
