Dysrider - Bury The Omen
Review by Susan
6.0
Formerly known as Trophallaxy, these Swiss players changed their name for the new record. Bury The Omen features symphonic metal, yes, but also a large death and melodeath quotient. It's really an interesting combo because sometimes one style is more clear and other times it's bundled into this sticky ball of genres-be-damned goo. Quite cool.

Lords Of The Trident - Frostburn
Review by Susan
 
Lords Of The Trident are doing for heavy metal what Gloryhammer do for power metal: play cheesy music in costumes with axes and make it completely serious and awesome.

Feed Her To The Sharks - Fortitude
Review by Susan
7.4
Feed Her To The Sharks's Fortitude is a solid metalcore record from a band bringing renewed passion to the genre. While the songs follow a simple formula, the band's driving rhythms and unstoppable energy set it apart. The aggression is impeccable and the melody is heartbreaking.

Burweed - Hide

Hide is initially reticent about its atmospheric sludge, and only toward its end will its basis become apparent.

Metal Storm Awards - Voting Closed 01.03

Last year we celebrated the 10th edition of the Metal Storm Awards, and earlier this year we observed the Awards' 10th anniversary with its own special competition. Now, finally, the 2014 Awards have come to a close. Countless bands and users alike have come and gone in those years, but the spirit of the Awards has remained the same; as we like to say, it's not about who wins and loses, but about discovering new bands. While this year's Awards had a smaller voter turnout than the previous couple, 2014 still had its fair share of friendly competition. (by BitterCOld)   Read more ››

Amaranthe - Tapper, Tallinn, Estonia, 10.02.2015 21.02

I am usually genuinely surprised when some bands come to revisit my little country in a fairly short while, say a couple of years. For them to be back in just half a year is a pretty significant achievement, especially for something as popular as Amaranthe. Well, the new album has been released between then and now, and maybe not everybody could make it to the show in Haapsalu. Given the warm reception there, it is fairly logical for the band to take to the stage here in such a short while. (by Ivor)   Read more ››

Cannibal Corpse + Behemoth + Aeon - The Fillmore, San Francisco, USA - 8 February 2015 17.02

Back at The Fillmore - this time 8bitglitch and I were hunkered down for some death metal. Cannibal Corpse and Behemoth play with Aeon and Tribulation. I haven't had the occasion to see many bands more than once so two repeats tonight was a real treat, having seen Aeon and Cannibal Corpse at Summer Slaughters 2013 and 2012, respectively. The strange doppelganger of my ex was in the crowd as usual, so we were ready to begin! (by Susan, 8bitglitch)   Read more ››

Devil Doll

In a response to why only one copy of "The Mark Of The Beast" was pressed, Mr. Doctor quoted "This is a painting, not a graphic work."

Mr. Doctor is the enigmatic and mysterious leader of and creative drive behind Devil Doll. He is extremely secretive about his identity, to protect his privacy. It is known that he is Italian, however, and he supposedly lives in Ljubljana. Since 1992, after being heavily censored in the introduction of a television showing of Sacrilegium, Mr. Doctor has refused to give interviews.
