Fallujah - The Flesh Prevails
Review by ScreamingSteelUS
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.


Wolvhammer - Clawing Into Black Sun
Review by Apothecary
Here we go again with this blackened sludge thing. As any style evolves and gains more practitioners, it inevitably becomes more varied in its delivery, and Wolvhammer are standing as an example of this. Separating themselves from more filthy contemporaries such as Coffinworm and Dragged Into Sunlight, these Americans are a lot less harsh than some of their peers, a fact that, in regards to their latest album, can be both pleasing and displeasing.


Siaskel - Jatenentolpen Thejin
Review by Mr. Doctor
Sometimes logistics can be both a bitch and a blessing. Siaskel was formed way back in 2003 and the recordings for their debut were already done by 2011, and now it has finally been released. Just in the same way, I've been listening to this black/death mix for quite a while already and only now do I feel compelled to write about them. Both waits seem to have given positive results.


Overkill - White Devil Armory
Review by R'Vannith
Pyromania is a serious condition and suffice to say, Overkill know their way around a thrash flint. Within the modern state of the genre where there's smoke, there's a bunch of seniors laying waste to their youthful contemporaries with ridiculous ease and an undying delight for incineration. These veterans always go in blazing.


Goatwhore - Constricting Rage Of The Merciless
Review by Doc Godin
Goatwhore is that scuzzy childhood friend. He's a little predictable, and sure, maybe he's the type of person who would put his own mother in a chokehold for a klondike bar, but he's dependable. In need of a thorough shower or not, he always knows how to show you a good time.


Eluveitie - Origins
Review by Windrider
So here we are again, fellow folks. Eluveitie, kings of Celtic metal, are back with two new members and sixteen new songs. Hopefully no one expects something different than your usual folkish fiddle metal for this is exactly what you get here, once again. But seriously, those Swiss guys have always been great at what they do and especially after Ensiferum's last effort we all know that things can go wrong if you change too much. So now that we worked out our expectations, the rest is about distinguishing good and bad not-so-good songs while having a look at the overall sound on Origins.


Taatsi - Amidst The Trees
Review by Apothecary
Atmospheric black metal has never seemed to be devoid of a diversity of sound, with even some of the most popular bands having a fair degree of distinction amongst themselves, and it can be interesting to see how each band formats their songwriting approach. Particularly, does the black metal take precedence, or do the atmospheric elements? In the case of Taatsi, it's fortunately a little of both.


Judas Priest - Redeemer Of Souls
Review by ScreamingSteelUS
Quietly setting aside the musty orchestrations and unfamiliar, off-putting theatrics that suffocated Nostradamus, Judas Priest have once again decided to ditch all excessive trappings for a "good, old-fashioned" sort of album.

Overkill - White Devil Armory
Need you ask?

New Overkill. Same old shit 3rd time in a row. I wish more bands recorded the same old shit 3 times in a row to such good effect. Screw modern copycats, listen to real thrash. Yeah, I know. Broken record syndrome - I always bash new thrash bands and praise Overkill. Judging by the quality of Overkill's recent output, it's not likely to change any time soon. Sue me.

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 ››

Riverside - Shrine Of New Generation Slaves (2013)

After hearing the single "Celebrity Touch", many have feared (or hoped) that Riverside would, like a lot of prog bands in recent years (Pain Of Salvation, Opeth, Dark Suns to name a few) find their new permanent address in the 70's - the decade's dirtier, grittier rock or its prog. That was not the case, luckily, since what we got instead is much more interesting than the prospect of Riverside turning to the past - they turned to the future. Back in 2009, on Anno Domini High...
