Overkill - White Devil Armory

Need you ask? 18.07.2014

New Overkill. Same old shit 3rd time in a row. I wish more bands recorded the same old shit 3 times in a row to such good effect. Screw modern copycats, listen to real thrash. Yeah, I know. Broken record syndrome - I always bash new thrash bands and praise Overkill. Judging by the quality of Overkill's recent output, it's not likely to change any time soon. Sue me.

Vader - Tibi Et Igni

Death metal 31.05.2014

The most varied and adventurous Vader album. I didn't think they could surprise me, but they did, and I've been a fan since 1990...

Domains - Sinister Ceremonies

Death metal 09.04.2014

The death metal album of the year was released on the first day of 2014. I knew that the moment I listened to the first song off the album. Do yourself a favour and LISTEN

Gamma Ray - Empire Of The Undead

Power metal, what else. 02.04.2014

I lost faith in power metal many years ago. An exhausted genre that is going nowhere. But at least some veterans still know how to play it

Fungoid Stream - Prehuman Shapes

For want of a better name, funeral doom 09.03.2014

One of the most original and cryptic doom bands, no doubt. The new album, as hard as it is to get, is at least on a par with their previous releases.



Vanden Plas - Chronicles Of The Immortals: Netherworld (Path 1)

As usual 02.03.2014

If you know the band, you know what to expect. And you won't be disappointed. Chances are, you'll be amazed.

Manii - Kollaps

Atmospheric Black 23.02.2014

Cold and distant, depressive and haunting, desolate and gloomy. Very well done. If you remember the first Manes album, you'll more or less know what to expect, but with much better production and musicianship. A mandatory listen for fans of black metal that bets on atmosphere as opposed to speed.

Behemoth - The Satanist

More Black than Death 03.02.2014

Starting with Demigod, Behemoth's albums became more and more soulless. Faster, more brutal, better produced, but devoid of feelings. But no more. This one is spontaneous, wild, unhinged and unpredictable. It has more music than brutality, more feeling than calculation. A fantastic treat.

Argus - Beyond The Martyrs

heavy/doom 25.10.2013

If you read my review of their previous album, you know I love them. If you didn't and you don't know the band, stop being uncool and go listen to it. Classic heavy/doom metal doesn't get better than this.



Fates Warning - Darkness In A Different Light

Prog, what else. 03.10.2013

Sorry Dream Theater, Fates Warning make us wait for their albums much longer, but release much better music.

Carcass - Surgical Steel

Perfectly balanced 25.09.2013

Most probably the best comeback album since 2004. Whichever Carcass album you used to like, you will find somehting for you here.

Newsted - Heavy Metal Music

Album title says it all 15.09.2013

It's not groundbreaking, it's not genre-defining, it's not brutal, surprising, innovative. It's, simply put, cool. And that's all it needs to be to please me.

Trouble - The Distortion Field

Stoner? Doom? Psychedelic? None of the above? 17.07.2013

They didn't waste those 6 years that passed since "Simple Mind Condition". The new album was worth the wait, even though it's not as great as some of their old releases.



Autopsy - The Headless Ritual

Proper Death Metal 25.06.2013

Their best since Severed Survival. Need I say more?

Mourning Beloveth - Formless

Doom 25.02.2013

These guys will make you wait for their new output for a long time. But when it arrives, you know it is worth the wait. It really is.
