Therapy? - Disquiet
Review by jupitreas
 
Therapy? is a band with two faces. On the one hand, we have the experimental, non-conformist Therapy? that is willing to go into all kinds of crazy, unusual territory, as evidenced by monuments to quirkiness such as Nurse, Suicide Pact - You First and Crooked Timber. On the other, we have the Therapy? that is constantly trying to recapture the glory of their greatest hit Troublegum with relatively polite and formulaic albums such as Shameless, Never Apologise Never Explain or One Cure Fits All. Alas, in 2015, with Disquiet we find ourselves staring straight at that second face.

Pyramaze - Disciples Of The Sun
Review by Susan
8.4
Many of you are already familiar with the awesome progressive power metal of Danish Pyramaze. Yet, others among you may only know them as the band that Matt Barlow joined after his post-Iced Earth absence from metal, only to leave after recording one album, re-join Iced Earth, then quit again. Nonetheless, Pyramaze was great before and they're still pretty damn great. This Disciples Of The Sun, seven years since their last record, is easily their best yet.

Waltari - You Are Waltari
Review by jupitreas
 
When reviewing their previous album, I complained that Waltari is no longer as adventurous and crazy as they used to be in the past. Well, apparently they must have read my review since even they now concede that I am Waltari (yes - ME) and that I am the one who knows best what Waltari should sound like.

Theories - Regression
Review by Ilham
8.2
There's nothing more satisfying than writing a rant review focusing on the lack of finesse and variety in a grindcore album, and finding another grind release that is so well written it just proves everything previously said to be true.

Downfall Of Nur - Umbras De Barbagia
Review by Susan
9.0
Few since early Agalloch have written such a stunning soundtrack to your contemplation of the meaning of life, nature, and darkness. Atmospheric, folk-oriented black metal like this can be simultaneously beautiful and ominous. There are things on this earth that are very, very old. Beware, this music will lead you directly to a life of solitude in the forest, living the bare and contented life of the hermit, brought to dwell on the mountainside....

Agnostic Front - The American Dream Died
Review by deadone
6.9
Agnostic Front are back and they're pissed. The American Dream Died and the New York hardcore crew are here to spread the word with a veritable kitchen sink of aggressive heavy music centred on hardcore traditions they helped pioneer over thirty years ago.

Chaos Divine - Colliding Skies
Review by R'Vannith
7.5
The most absorbing aspect of Colliding Skies is that it's a densely textured record in view of its smooth and approachable sound. In instrumentation, every aspect sets a well defined and accessible trajectory in progressive metal. It is a melodic vehicle for expressive vocal arrangements which project an emphasis that readily uplift the listening experience. Above all else, Australia's Chaos Divine surely aim for consistency in this latest effort.

Getting Into: Manowar 29.03

The articles in this series begun by our own Baz Anderson are designed to give a brief overview of a band's entire discography, so as to provide a clear point of entry for the uninitiated. It offers a different approach from the typical review format, for the curious newcomer to a well-traveled band. Manowar Heavy/power metal USA Manowar helped kick off the American power metal scene back in the '80s with their self-referential bombast and overdriven melodic metal. While their fame stems as much from their seemingly-blissful goofiness (and… 'memorable' artwork) as from their... (by ScreamingSteelUS)   Read more ››

Ikuinen Kaamos - Fall Of Icons (2010)

The first thing that comes to mind to anyone putting this CD on, is something along the lines of "hey, is that an Opeth album or what?"… Yes, on this Fall Of Icons, Ikuinen Kaamos do sound a lot like Mikael Åkerfeldt's band, to a point they could be called a copycat. But are they, really? Well, this album is all about five long, drawn-out songs that meander between harsh parts and soft, melancholic moments. Yes, that does sound familiar. Especially when you can sometimes almost... (by Darkside Momo)   Read more ››

Marillion

By their own admission, Marillion have never been fashionable in the eyes of the media. The band have been prepared to send up their unfashionable status, naming their 2001 album "Anoraknophobia" and printing T-shirts with the logo "Marillion: Uncool as F*ck."
