Wait A Minute! This Isn't Metal! - August 2020
by musclassia, RaduP | 12.09
We here at Metal Storm pride ourselves on our thousands of metal reviews and interviews and article; metal is our collective soul and passion, which is why we bother with this junk. That being said, we'd be lying if we stuck to our trve-kvlt guns and claimed that metal is the only thing we ever listen to. Whether we want to admit it or not, we do check out some other stuff from time to time; some of us are more poptimistic than others, but there's a whole world out there aside from Satan-worshiping black metal and dragon-slaying power metal.

by RaduP, Mr. Doctor, Apothecary | 05.09
For a genre as hard to get into as drone metal, it is surprising how much of a household name Sunn O))) have become. Though with a fairly limited but devout fanbase, most people still see them as that band that plays only one note slowly. But the O)))-verse is large and includes a lot of sounds, experiments and a fair share of side projects. We hope to explore at least part of those in this three-part article series.

Black Sabbath - Paranoid

I'm not going to go to the same effort that I did to mark the half-centenary of Black Sabbath, but I do think that Paranoid is the superior album by far - it was one of my first metal albums (mine and the rest of the world's) and it remains one of my favorites. The guitars, bass, and drums on this album are simply flawless, and the vocals are pretty good, too. I would tentatively say that heavy metal has not yet produced another work as instrumentally well-rounded and complete as "War Pigs." Every groove of this album is the very essence of metal incarnate, and while you are correct in noting that we mostly use the Staff Picks feature just to mark anniversaries nowadays, there are few albums worth celebrating as much as Paranoid. It boggles the mind to consider that this album has been in the world for 50 years and it is still looked upon as a masterpiece.
