Authentic Man Spotlight - Monstrosity's Mike Hrubovcak
It's no secret, the Lockhart's lab is frequently banging some very loudmusic. Gutteral vocals, grinding guitars, and smashing percussive assaultshave scared a fair share of delivery men as they've dropped off packagesin the workshop. I've recently had the privilege to begin collaboratingwith one of my favorite current metal album cover artists and currentvocalist of the brutal death metal band “Monstrosity” and has been amember of many bands in the past such as Vile, Hypoxia, Azure Emote andAbraxas. His artwork can be found over at visualdarkness.com so be sure togo and check it out. That project will be released in the near future sokeep an eye out for it. Today we get the chance to go inside the twistedgore obsessed mind of the madman we know as Mike Hrubovcak.

Subgenres in metal and why they matter
Heavy. Death. Black. Thrash. Progressive. Power. Doom. The list goes on. Ask any metalhead if subgenres matter; chances are, they have an entire thesis fully equipped with diagrams and flowcharts ready to go, proving their necessity. Although this is a bit of an exaggeration, the premise holds true. To outsiders not familiar with metal and its various subcultures, it’s all the same. If there is one experience all metalheads share, it’s that we’ve all been asked the quintessential “how do you even understand what they’re saying?” question or told the typical “it’s just so loud” claim. However, as one begins to develop an interest in the genre and dive a bit deeper to discover just how vast metal is, subgenres and their associated conventions become integral to understanding the style as a whole. Let’s dig in.

Ingredients Spotlight: Avocado Oil
Today we're going to begin a new series in the Lockhart's Journal. This is something I've been meaning to do for a long time and my busy schedule has kept me from doing it. Today I've decided to stay late in the office and just get to it. This is a topic that I find to be incredibly important and I hope you feel the same way. In the Ingredient Spotlight blog posts I will explain more about the ingredients that we use in our products and why exactly we use them.
