Nibiru - Padmalotus
Review by Apothecary
8.5
In recent years, a good few occult theorists and scientists who spend too much time reading Zecharia Sitchin have come to proclaim the inevitable return of Nibiru. If they're talking about the fabled planet, I'd say their arguments are probably shit out of luck, but if they happen to be referring to the band, they're dead on. The Italian trio that is Nibiru are indeed here again on the psychedelia block, and they're striking back with what is perhaps their most powerful album to date.

Sannhet - Revisionist
Review by tea[m]ster
9.0
An American band that plays good black metal? There are not many, and even though Sannhet orchestrates what certainly can be labeled as "hipster" black metal (had to say it), they are pretty unique in that they have no vocals. Think Deafheaven, Altar Of Plagues or Regarde Les Hommes Tomber but without the desolate, shrieking and chthonic black metal singing.

Gruesome - Savage Land
Review by deadone
7.0
There are probably a few Death fans out there who lament that the band switched to more progressive pastures far too quickly and who believe the band should have churned out a few more Leprosy's instead. Now these fans have their wish come true in the form of Gruesome's Leprosy worshipping debut Savage Land.

King Parrot - Dead Set
Review by Doc Godin
8.3
Honestly, looking at the name, you couldn't fault someone for thinking this is another one of those Municipal Waste side projects, which doesn't set the highest expectations. Don't get me wrong, Cannabis Corpse and Iron Reagan are both good fun, but ultimately a bit disposable. King Parrot meets some expectations and blows away others.

Arena - The Unquiet Sky
Review by Ivor
 
Turns out it's not easy to come up with an apt description for the new Arena album. I've spent quite some time searching for a phrase that would round up my ongoing journey with The Unquiet Sky. Until recently I could only think of something being off about this one. Now, finally, I've concluded that unremarkable grower sums it up best. That, and that something is decidedly off about it.

Forgotten Tomb - Hurt Yourself And The Ones You Love
Review by Ag Fox
7.0
Forgotten Tomb is a pretty easy band to nail musically. Whether it's their early-Katatonia era worship or the more recent ones which bring some rocking attitude to melodic black metal, and I really like them both even if they're not extremely original.

Porta Nigra - Kaiserschnitt
Review by Apothecary
 
Alright, so we have album artwork of a weasel-looking thing, wearing a general's uniform and looking coked out of its mind, biting into a bleeding globe. I wouldn't put my money on it, but using the simple human power of deduction, I'd say that means we're in for a wild ride.

Fistula - Destitute [Demo]
Review by Apothecary
8.0
Ohio's Fistula are an example of a band whose name goes perfectly hand in hand with the attitude of their music. Like the abnormal and harmful organ connections for which they are named, these guys are purveyors of grime and are all about the nastiness: eating, drinking, and bathing in it. 2015's Destitute is certainly no exception to this, and proves that although the band aren't changing up their formula anytime soon, they really don't need to.

Roadburn Festival 2015 - Day 1: "Get Rekt" 15.05

It's that time again, folks! A month after it's already passed, and a bunch of reviews have already been written about it, your favorite procrastinators Apothecary and Mr. Doctor are once again getting to their four day breakdown of Roadburn Festival. We may be late to the game, but hey guys: you haven't heard the tale of Roadburn until you've heard it from us.

Getting Into: Alice Cooper 03.05

Getting Into: Alice Cooper The articles in this series begun by our own Baz Anderson are designed to give a brief overview of a band's entire discography, so as to provide a clear point of entry for the uninitiated. It offers a different approach from the typical review format, for the curious newcomer to a well-traveled band. Alice Cooper Hard rock, heavy metal, glam rock, psychedelic rock, new wave, industrial metal, punk, experimental rock, pop USA It would be impossible to quantify the vast influence that Alice Cooper has had on hard rock and heavy metal.

Evergrey - Factory, Tallinn, Estonia, 26.03.2015 10.04

Evergrey have been long-awaited guests around these parts. Even though they come from a country so close, it's apparently still a lengthy journey to drop by. To some, Evergrey are a band about 10 years past their prime, but their latest album seems to have gotten the blood flowing again and has gained some good attention. Regardless of the reasons, it was a pleasure to see them hit the stage in Tallinn as part of the Tallinn Music Week festival. (by Ivor)   Read more ››

Alkerdeel - Morinde (2012)

Back in 1992, Darkthrone released the first part of a trilogy of legendary albums, A Blaze In The Northern Sky. It was notorious for its riffs that recalled their past as a death metal band yet played in full black metal fashion. Now, 20 years later, one band decides to take this teaching and use it for its own depraved purposes. Beware folks, things are about to get nasty. (by Mr. Doctor)   Read more ››

Marilyn Manson

On the compilation "Lest We Forget":

The video for "(s)AINT" on the Japanese deluxe edition would be uncut if it were not for 2 seconds worth of material: at the 2:07 and 2:10- 2:11 in the video, it shows a vagina, and is blurred out due to Japanese laws, regarding nudity in video.

The DVD contains several easter eggs. There is a video of Manson's autopsy which can be found by highlighting his crotch in the special features menu. There is also the making of the "Mobscene" video (otherwise found on a limited edition single) and the performance version of the "Disposable Teens" video, which was shown on most television channels pre-watershed, because of the "disturbing" content in the original version.
