Belphegor - Conjuring The Dead
Review by Doc Godin
7.0
Have you ever tried to start an epic slow-clap moment in a room full of people, hoping it'll catch on and break into some massive applause, but instead end up standing there like a total dope, beating your hands together in an otherwise totally silent crowd? That's how every Belphegor fan feels when they release something even slightly better than Walpurgis Rites...and so it continues with Conjuring The Dead.

Entombed A.D. - Back To The Front
Review by Doc Godin
8.7
Now we have two Entombeds lurking around? Details on this fiasco are vague, but the most obvious scenario is that these guys were ready to do battle metal style...Which is less Braveheart meets Conan The Barbarian, and more of Judge Judy...But Judge Judy on a metal musicians budget for legal representation, which is probably something like Barry Zuckerkorn meets Lionel Hutz. Alas, Alex Hellid packed up his toys and went home, leaving the rest of the Entombed crew to release this as Entombed A.D.. Bad news for Hellid, because Back To The Front slays pretty damn hard.

Accept - Blind Rage
Review by ScreamingSteelUS
8.5
Now that Accept have climbed back to the top of their game and swept up the spotlight with a pair of excellent albums, their challenge lies in maintaining their grasp on success. Despite song titles like "Dying Breed," "Fall Of The Empire," and "Final Journey," Blind Rage does not spell the end to Accept's second wind; it is the next chapter.

Chaos Moon - Resurrection Extract
Review by Apothecary
8.3
One man bands have more or less always caught my attention, mostly due to the inspiring testaments to individual potential that lurk within them. Many of metal's repeat offenders within this realm of solidarity have kept relatively quiet this year, but now the silence is being broken once more by the little known, though highly accomplished Chaos Moon, beloved offspring of America's very own Alexander "Esoterica" Poole.

Fozzy - Do You Wanna Start A War
Review by Doc Godin
 
It seems a little too easy picking on a band like Fozzy. The soapbox-contrarian part of me wants to love this album out of spite...But I just can't do it. Do You Wanna Start A War? is about as bland as it gets.

Krokmitën - Omicron-Omega
Review by Doc Godin
 
Remember when you weren't a miserable prick? Back when the prospect of hearing a new, underground death metal band filled you childish glee, rather than that tired sigh and shrug? Well, here's something nice for your sad little existence ... Krokmitën; a band straddling the line between classic death metal standards and fresh, innovative sounds.

Stormnatt - Omega Therion
Review by Mr. Doctor
6.5
Now, after 5 years, Stormnatt has released their third album since their beginnings back in 2000. Almost the same gap was already put between the first two albums and to be perfectly honest, maybe a couple of extra years wouldn't have hurt. Now, there are actually some positive factors and potential here, but after two albums you might expect a bit more.

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 ››

Marillion - Somewhere Else (2007)

If I have to be honest, I will say that my favorite Marillion's period was and will ever be the one with Fish when the band uses to release albums like "Misplaced Childhood" or "Clutching At Straws". But of course with Steve Hogarth, the band released some real masterpieces too and for its 24th anniversary the band found the way to release one more time a new lovely album, "Somewhere Else". Don't expect to find heavy riffs here, "Somewhere Else" is... (by Jeff)   Read more ››
