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
Review by R'Vannith
7.3
Hide is initially reticent about its atmospheric sludge, and only toward its end will its basis become apparent.

Scanner - The Judgement
Review by ScreamingSteelUS
7.1
It's not every day that an ancient German speed metal band returns from the dead. Guitarist Axel "A.J." Julius has brought Scanner back into the studio after a lengthy period of inactivity for The Judgement, their first album in 13 years - the first since 2002's relatively unusual Scantropolis. 13 years is a long time - since then, I've learned how to drive, tie my shoes, and… well, that's about it. But what have Scanner learned?

Hails unto Enki, he whose home is water. Patron of Eridu, creator and mischief-maker. Blesser of the holy Melechesh.

Death Karma - The History Of Death & Burial Rituals Part I
Transcendental black/death

Infernal Vlad seems to like death. A lot. Death Karma is a new band that sees the Cult Of Fire front man teaming up with the band's drummer for a musical spectacle that can only be described as stunning. Black and death metal combine seamlessly, in a way that is both thundering and bang-able, but also eerily hypnotic and surprisingly catchy with its sense of groove and enhancement from Vlad's distinct sense of melody. If these guys needed any further proof that they're incredibly skilled composers, this is it. Early AOTY contender.

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 ››

Furia - Kheros (2006)

Third release of Furia, "Kheros" was awaited like the confirmation of this really good promising French combo. The previous album, "Un Lac De Larme Et De Sang" was a pure masterpiece and a lot of people in France and all around Europe wanted something better or at least similar. But the band chose to do something a bit different and the result is a bit disturbing actually. Not bad but different… "Un Lac De Larme Et De Sang" was a perfect mix between Heavy Metal and...

Machinae Supremacy

Player One was originally titled "Player One (Return To Arcade)".

The song Deus Ex Machinae was at one point titled "Hyperion".

In an interview with Robert Stjärnström, he said of the Jets'n'Guns soundtrack "since they didn't have vocals, there was no pressure to follow any standard pop song "form". Free reins."

The downloadable soundtrack of Jets'n'Guns is encoded at higher quality than the versions included with the game (which were reduced for download size reasons), and slightly longer, as the music was cut so that it can be looped in the game. The downloadable soundtrack does not include "Hero". Hero is available separately on the Machinae Supremacy site.

The name "Futuremachine" was actually a hint from Robert Stjärnström that it was going to be a future Machinae Supremacy song, which turned out to be "Reanimator".

The song "Lava Trouble Bubble" was based on the Redeemer song "Rise" (not the other way around), very much like "Machinaeguns" and "Dududub Dududum" were based on the song "Empire".

The song "Flight of the Toyota" is being remade into a new song for Machinae Supremacy's third album, currently untitled.
