Ethereal Shroud - They Became The Falling Ash
Review by BitterCOld
I like walking around my new home of Asuncion at night. After dark the city takes on a different feel. Opting to meander in new directions through new barrios is very intriguing and, at times, tinged with a little danger. I think with They Became The Falling Ash I've found the soundtrack to my next few explorations.


Leviathan - Scar Sighted
Review by Apothecary
Any devout follower of black metal should know the name of Leviathan, a project that has helped to give America a significant presence in the genre's international scene time and time again. After a four year absence, and dealing with a few of life's many curveballs, Jeff Whitehead is back on the music scene, assaulting our eardrums with a new album from his twisted offspring. Beware: things are about to get ominous, and there's no playing it safe here.


Muck - Your Joyous Future
Review by Ilham
Nothing generic can come out of a country that produced Björk.


Enslaved - In Times
Review by Apothecary
Let no one ever have to question the consistency of the Norsemen in Enslaved. From the icy black metal of their debut, right down to the more complex nature of their recent material, the band have garnered a well deserved reputation as mature and innovative songwriters. 2015's In Times is a slightly more accessible mark in their discography, one that, while good, also feels as though it could have gone a little bit deeper.


Dysrider - Bury The Omen
Review by Susan
Formerly known as Trophallaxy, these Swiss players changed their name for the new record. Bury The Omen features symphonic metal, yes, but also a large death and melodeath quotient. It's really an interesting combo because sometimes one style is more clear and other times it's bundled into this sticky ball of genres-be-damned goo. Quite cool.


Satan's Host - Pre-Dating God Part 1
Review by Doc Godin
Satan's Host - hosting a bunch of cool sounds with little clue how to arrange them.


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.

Metal Storm Awards - Voting Closed 01.03

Last year we celebrated the 10th edition of the Metal Storm Awards, and earlier this year we observed the Awards' 10th anniversary with its own special competition. Now, finally, the 2014 Awards have come to a close. Countless bands and users alike have come and gone in those years, but the spirit of the Awards has remained the same; as we like to say, it's not about who wins and loses, but about discovering new bands. While this year's Awards had a smaller voter turnout than the previous couple, 2014 still had its fair share of friendly competition. (by BitterCOld)   Read more ››

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 ››

Aura Noir - Hades Rise (2008)

As you probably already know, Mr. Thrash and Mr. Black Metal are cousins. If you're still a bit doubtful about this obvious fact, I will give you a name which should teach you reality and this name is Aura Noir. Maybe that you still don't know this really good Norwegian band but in that case you have to know that they're considered nowadays as the masters of Thrash Black Metal. "Hades Rise" is their last release and one more time the fans of the genre shouldn't be disappointed!... (by Jeff)   Read more ››
