Mutoid Man - Bleeder
Review by wormdrink414
8.0
If this had been made by one person, it'd be a safe bet that that one person was a classic hard rock aficionado who'd been struck by lightning. After the strike, he didn't ditch his Pontiac or his jean jacket or his hatred of the Eagles, he just happened to acquire the ability to easily spot complex mathematical patterns in things.

Disarmonia Mundi - Cold Inferno
Review by Demonic Tutor
7.7
Determined to let the world know that Italy can still produce some high-quality Gothenburg metal, Disarmonia Mundi is back after a 6-year hiatus. The Turin-based twosome is comprised of instrumentalist extraordinaire Ettore Rigotti and vocalist Claudio Ravinale. Björn Strid from Soilwork and Christian Älvestam also provide some vocal work. In this much coveted market of melodic death metal, it has always been virtually impossible to avoid...

Sacred Oath - Ravensong
Review by deadone
7.0
So it turns out the metal gods do in fact listen to our prayers. Ask for a ballsy, melodic heavy/power metal album that's not overproduced and not rooted in Helloween clichés and the metalgods grant not one but two such albums in the form of the new Armored Saint as well as the album in question, Sacred Oath's Ravensong. But are the gods truly generous or just a bunch of fickle tricksters who give with one hand only to take with the other?

Third Ion - 13/8 Bit
Review by Ag Fox
8.1
In case you've been living under a rock, supergroups are all the rage now, and they are popping up quicker than you can count them. Third Ion may not be as "super" in terms of fame, but this collaborative effort is still very much on my radar because members of Into Eternity and The Devin Townsend Project are on board.

Autokrator - Autokrator
Review by Apothecary
 
Those not particularly accustomed to the drone genre may be surprised to discover the incredible amount of variation lurking within it. As a fundamentally structure-less genre, its very nature leaves the door for invention wide open, in turn leading to many different interpretations of the drone sound. This year, French newcomers Autokrator are ready to put their own spin on this principle, with some interesting, though perhaps unexpected influences.

Kataklysm - Of Ghosts And Gods
Review by Windrider
8.0
Kataklysm is surely one of the constants in death metal: releasing an album every few years, maintaining their line-up for almost two decades and only changing on the drums, and being a guarantee for some quality music. With their latest release, Waiting For The End To Come, they let some dynamics return to the otherwise so heavy style, and that was pretty refreshing overall. Now it's time to prove that they can hold onto that path. Of Ghosts And Gods is here to please all fans of their latest stuff.

Hard Rock Laager 2015 - Vana-Vigala, Estonia, 03-04.07.2015 13.07

It's been so long since the last time I was at Hard Rock Laager. It's, to put it bluntly, quite embarrassing. When I looked it up, it turned out that I have skipped 6 editions. It's surprisingly 2 less than I initially thought, though. The reasons have varied from Hellfests to conflicting schedules, as well as the lack of interest for any particular line-up, and laziness. In those skipped editions I only really regret missing Trail Of Tears and I didn't intend to repeat this mistake with Threshold. And being there again, it felt like a homecoming.

Ihsahn - Eremita (2012)

Shovel parting earth and an unnerving scream signal an imminently approaching force. A force to be reckoned with it is one which mouths to you your own doubts and brings you to question your own sanity. The listener will find themselves in a position from which they cannot move, fastened tight within a straight-jacket of exceptionally resilient musical compositions. But what is this madness, what is Eremita? It is certainly an irregularity, one moulded into form by the nimble fingers of mastermind... (by R'Vannith)   Read more ››
