Krokmitën - Omicron-Omega
Review by Doc Godin
 
Remember when you weren't a miserable prick? Back when the prospect of hearing a new, underground death metal band filled you childish glee, rather than that tired sigh and shrug? Well, here's something nice for your sad little existence ... Krokmitën; a band straddling the line between classic death metal standards and fresh, innovative sounds.

Stormnatt - Omega Therion
Review by Mr. Doctor
6.5
Now, after 5 years, Stormnatt has released their third album since their beginnings back in 2000. Almost the same gap was already put between the first two albums and to be perfectly honest, maybe a couple of extra years wouldn't have hurt. Now, there are actually some positive factors and potential here, but after two albums you might expect a bit more.

Chemia - The One Inside
Review by R Lewis
7.3
Chemia are just like your hometown band, that one that plays in that pub down the street every Saturday night. Catchy, easy-listening and not so heavy, they're the stereotype of the band you'd want as a background while enjoying a beer with friends.

The Conjuration - Surreal
Review by R'Vannith
5.8
Writhing madness and a morbid fascination for jerking the listener around with savagely nonsensical song structures. It's all so Surreal.

Herod (SUI) - They Were None
Review by R'Vannith
7.2
Inspired by the bitterly barren and cold regions of the Scandinavian north, Herod slam the adjective "heavy" with an equally chilling new meaning.

Slugdge - Gastronomicon
Review by Mattybu
 
You really can get away with a lot in the realm of metal. The sheer number of different themes central to various bands and genres is part of what keeps metal interesting for me. Whether it's a depressing retelling of nautical literature at the hands of Ahab or a tale of dragon-slaying told by Rhapsody Of Fire, there will always be a huge variety of sounds to be heard and stories to be told throughout the metal universe.

Review by ScreamingSteelUS
8.2
Ranging from death-thrash to blackened thrash, Karnivore's second album, In The Halls Of The Wicked, is a vicious assault of frosty destruction.

Fallujah - The Flesh Prevails
Review by ScreamingSteelUS
9.1
Fallujah have undergone quite the evolution since their debut EP. Beginning life as an out-and-out deathcore band with nothing more than inventive riffs and a few blackened passages to set them apart, they have introduced more progressive and atmospheric elements with each release. The Flesh Prevails marks a true change in Fallujah, from better-than-average players in a populous scene to innovators of a rising and complex one.

Agalloch - Gothic Theatre, Englewood, USA - 8 Jul 2014 13.07

I was out of town two years ago when Agalloch played in Denver the last time, so when I first saw that they were scheduled to play at the Gothic Theatre in Englewood, CO (a suburb of Denver) I was actually rather surprised. Are they really that big? Would the thousand plus capacity venue be largely empty? (by D.T. Metal)   Read more ››

Dark Lunacy - The Diarist (2006)

A powerful record label can ram the worst boring album down your throat for months while extraordinaire bands are flying under the radar of both professionals and fans alike. Dark Lunacy’s career is a perfect illustration of that. I am not even sure those guys are still around but that would be a tragic end to one of Italy’s finest combos. Let’s go back to the year 2006, which brought us Dark Lunacy’s third full-length offering The Diarist, following the excellent Forget Me... (by Demonic Tutor)   Read more ››

Gorgoroth

On February 1st, 2004, during a live broadcast concert in Kraków, Poland, the band displayed sheep heads on stakes, a bloodbath of 80 liters of sheep's blood, satanic symbols, and four naked crucified models on stage. A police investigation took place with allegations of religious offense (which is prosecutable under Polish law) and cruelty to animals. Though these charges were considered, the band was not charged as it was ruled that they were unaware of the fact that what they were doing was illegal, although the concert organizer faced two years in prison as he knew about it and neither informed the band that it was against the law nor intervened. The whole controversy led to the band being dropped from the roster of the Nuclear Blast Tour and the footage of the concert being confiscated by the police.
