Occultation - Silence In The Ancestral House
Review by R'Vannith
Occultation's doom metal eludes expectations. Contained in Silence In The Ancestral House, the occult receives an unusually mixed meaning.


Moanaa - Descent
Review by tea[m]ster
Right under our noses there is a post-metal revolution happening in the eastern European countries. It seems Greece, Russia, Ukraine and Poland have joined the party late and fallen in love with this genre, because now, more than ever, most of my highly rated post-metal albums have come from those places. Adding to this trend are Poland's Moanaa and their debut LP Descent. Using a "typical" post-metal format, Descent isn't musically ground breaking but a laudable example of what fans of this scene should want and expect.


Young And In The Way - When Life Comes To Death
Review by Ilham
"Will you still love me when I'm no longer young and beautiful?" asks Lana Del Rey. Will you still love Young And In The Way when they're no longer young and hardcore? I ask you.


Monster Magnet - Milking The Stars: A Reimagining Of Last Patrol
Review by Apothecary
What is a "reimagining," exactly? In the case of Monster Magnet, it means just what it seems to be implying: a reinterpretation of a previous work, taking a fresh lens of perspective to it and going all out from there. Thus, Milking The Stars is not a new album, at least not as we would typically understand the term. But in many ways it might as well be.


Anguish - Mountain
Review by R'Vannith
Further brandishing of the severed fox head signals two things for traditionally epic doom: more Anguish and fewer afforded comforts. Between you and the end is a Mountain of unembellished metal as bitter and unrelenting as the winter wind. Archaic style is delivered here without penitence.


Abysmal Dawn - Obsolescence
Review by deadone
Too often modern death metal bands seem content to imitate genre originators ala Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse or Deicide. Hence, it is refreshing to hear a band that plays traditional death metal and somehow manages to come across as reasonably unique. And, with Obsolescence, Abysmal Dawn do just that.


Vermin Womb - Permanence [EP]
Review by Ilham
Call me lazy, call me uncreative, but I am going to spare you the usual accumulation of cute little metaphors that are supposed to convey the brutal nature of the piece of music being reviewed. I'm not going to tell you to imagine how this or that feels, nor compare it to large objects entering the orifices you were or were not born with. I'll be just as straightforward as Permanence is.


Kayo Dot - Coffins On Io
Review by Introspekrieg
"Leaving the world behind is the best experience most feeble minds fear to try."

Amorphis - Rock Café, Tallinn, Estonia, 09.10.2014 25.10

Amorphis seem to swing by Estonia regularly enough in recent times that I'm slowly starting to lose count of how many times I've seen them play. With a little jog down memory lane, I've come to the conclusion that this concert was the 5th for me, and my 4th in Estonia. However, since Amorphis have put on a good show every time so far, I saw no real reason to skip. If nothing else, it would've made for a fine evening out, despite the lecture at 8 the following morning. (by Ivor)   Read more ››

Wayd - Ghostwalk (2007)

Once every couple of years, an album coming right out of nowhere will suddenly grab you by the balls, hit you hard in the face and turn you into a junkie needing his daily fix. This is exactly what happened to me with Wayd's previous record, 2002's "Decadance", which I consider to this day one of the best progressive/jazz death metal albums ever put forth and which ranks among my favourite albums of all time. The problem when you like an album so much is that you're really... (by Collin)   Read more ››
