Black Moth - Condemned To Hope
Review by R'Vannith
Merely hoping for their tunes to be deemed catchy isn't Black Moth's manner of proceeding. Cunningly combining rock 'n' roll energies and a darkly charred stoner metal presentation, it seems that they would condemn passable song writing to deliver catchy tunes by natural force of habit.


Gunfire - Age Of Supremacy
Review by R Lewis
Gunfire's first new music in ten years brings all the classic metal you could ever need.


Midnight Sin - Sex First
Review by Doc Godin
Good lord. Sleaze metal revival? Are we actually still doing this? Ugh. Midnight Sin, if this album ever had any value, it's about a decade past it's "best before" date.


Irreversible - Surface
Review by tea[m]ster
Atlanta, Georgia's Irreversible mark a return to the glorious past with their latest release Surface. Gone are the hardcore/alternative elixirs from their last two releases, Ashes and Thorn. Back are the post metal capstones from Sins and Light.


Necrodeath - The 7 Deadly Sins
Review by ScreamingSteelUS
Italian veterans Necrodeath, like many groups with 30 years and 11 albums to their names, like to play Motörhead roulette with their releases. They adhere to the same formula time after time, breaking ranks for nobody, and the quality of the album lies completely in the thrall of chance.


Northern Oak - Of Roots And Flesh
Review by Doc Godin
Nature-y band name and album title? Equally nature-y album cover with folkloric overtones? Yeah, typical folk metal. In spite of being pretty typical in so many ways, Northern Oak have done a supremely bang-up job with Of Roots And Flesh.


Protokult - No Beer In Heaven
Review by Doc Godin
If the Korpiklaani fan club was a violent prison gang, the cruel, painful initiation ritual would be to listen to Protokult's No Beer In Heaven.


Brimstone Coven - II
Review by Mattybu
Brimstone Coven is one of those bands that is hard for me to not enjoy. Like, really hard.

Machine Head - Postpone North American Tour 19.09

A few months ago, Machine Head announced a big North American tour with Epica, Children Of Bodom and Battlecross, set for this October. However, the band now postpones that tour because it seems that their new album Bloodstone & Diamonds is taking longer to complete than expected and they need the time to work on it. It's a bummer not only to the fans but also the other bands on the bill who are not pleased about it. (by BloodTears)   Read more ››

Progventure Part 9: Green Carnation - Another Night Under The Dam, Åseral, Norway, 31.07.2014 01.09

It seems that my Progventure prog searching trips are not only a convenient excuse to travel new places, or more often the only way of seeing bands I like I wouldn't otherwise get to see, but in some cases they are turning out to be events of a fairly unique kind. Another Night Under the Dam - the Green Carnation reunion show at the Åseral dam number 3 in Norway was unique in more ways than one. And it most definitely was special. (by Ivor)   Read more ››
Rockstar Mayhem Festival 2014 - Denver, CO - 13 Jul 2014 29.07

The annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival! Great variety of bands, I always have a blast, it's always fun, the weather is always way too hot and this year's event was almost no exception. Yes, almost no exception; the timing of the festival couldn't be worse and the decision to split the Colorado show into two events didn't help the cause neither. (by D.T. Metal)   Read more ››

When John Norum played with Eddie Meduza he was once fired because he became a too big star, and took away the focus from Eddie, but when Eddie realized he had a gig the same day he had to take back John, just to fire him again after the gig. He then took him back again to finish the tour, but fired him again after the tour.
