Sunset In The 12th House - Mozaic
Review by Apothecary
9.0
There can be very little denying that Edmond Karban and Christian Popescu (of Negură Bunget note) have come a long way in developing and perfecting their sound. First masters of atmosphere in Negura, they have since departed, forming the equally (if not more) impressive Dordeduh in 2009. But the ball's not stopping its rolling there, folks. Get ready for Sunset In The 12th House.

Vattnet Viskar - Settler
Review by Apothecary
7.5
If there was an award this year for "most ambiguous album cover," it would probably have to go to Vattnet Viskar's Settler. Although the image itself reveals almost nothing about the music within, the image that it recreates has powerful implications of blissful unawareness of a fast approaching doom, somber themes that Vattnet Viskar seem to capture with their heavy and airy sound.

Deathhammer - Evil Power
Review by wormdrink414

It was bumping into tables, repeating anecdotes repeatedly, hitting on old women sloppiness that made Onward To The Pits so memorable.

High On Fire - Luminiferous
Review by BitterCOld
8.8
High On Fire are one of a few select bands in metal, or even in the music industry. Six albums out and none of them suck. Not too many bands you can say that about now, are there? Luminiferous marks their seventh studio release and some highly flammable straw men might have been worried that they'd run out of ideas or Matt Pike's sobriety might fuck up their awesome dynamic… Bitch, please.

Civil War - Gods And Generals
Review by ScreamingSteelUS
5.8
Civil War is a history buff's dream. Finally, a metal anthem dedicated to Lord Nelson! Someone else in the world dug up the story of the USS Monitor! And who could not but respect the musical memorialization of Oskar Schindler? Sweden's second-favorite library-bound power metal venture never fail to impress - in terms of lyrical content, anyway. Unfortunately, as the saying goes… history repeats itself.

Powerwolf - Blessed & Possessed
Review by Belegûr
6.9
"I've put on the last album by mistake." These were my initial thoughts when I started listening to Blessed & Possessed; that is just how similar the opening track, "Blessed & Possessed," is to "Amen & Attack" from the previous album, Preachers Of The Night. Unfortunately this feeling of déjà vu continued throughout the rest of the album.

Mägo De Oz - Rarezas (2006)

"Rarezas" will probably be the last release of Mägo De Oz via the label Locomotive Records (and actually I'm even not sure that the band will ever recognize it as an official release). This double CDs, is a compilation of unreleased tracks, singles (etc). This is above all something for the ones who want everything by Mägo De Oz… the others, who already have all their albums, will not find anything essential in this release. "Rarezas" is a new compilation of the... (by Jeff)   Read more ››
