Domovoyd - Domovoyd
Review by Apothecary
8.0
If you've been paying attention to metal coming out of Finland, especially in the past five years, you'd know that the country has seen a considerable increase in the presence of psychedelic bands within the context of the genre. In 2013, Domovoyd proved themselves as willing to get in on this action with their debut, and in 2015, they're looking to solidify their status as formidable within it, an effort at which they certainly succeed.

Hate - Crusade:Zero
Review by ScreamingSteelUS
5.4
It's easy to forget about Hate. You could very easily forget that you saw them opening for Overkill, of all bands, a few years back. You could just as easily forget that you were supposed to review their new album a couple of months ago. You might even forget that they opened for Vader ten feet in front of your face two hours ago.

Minsk - The Crash & The Draw
Review by BitterCOld
9.0
Nearly four years ago I sadly reported that Minsk was on indefinite hiatus. I also prophesied But before you ponder seppuku at this news, the band is named after a city which has shown historical resilience to invasions and razing. So who knows, maybe they, too, like their namesake, will return and rebuild. Or at least finish that album they mentioned working on and go out with a (sonic) boom. Happy days are here again. Roughly four years since...

Barren Earth - On Lonely Towers
Review by R'Vannith
7.7
Considering Barren Earth as a supergroup has never been necessitated. It's true that the musicians in question are already noteworthy for efforts elsewhere and currently lead busy lives in other bands. However, status external to Barren Earth no longer solely upholds the name, as the name has come to uphold itself with a tenable style their own. A third effort, On Lonely Towers, represents the band's continued development and change.

Wheelfall - Interzone (2012)

The Metal Storm 2012 Awards are fast approaching, so let me just come right out and say it. In the category of best debut album, Wheelfall's Interzone is a serious contender. If you're at all familiar with William S. Burroughs, the legendary Beat Generation writer, you probably would've recognized that the album title is an ode to the place wherein most of the action in Naked Lunch takes place. This underlying respect of classic psychedelia/sci fi culture that adorns Interzone helps... (by Apothecary)   Read more ››
