Mass Hypnosis - Sanctimonious
Review by Ilham
5.1
People refuse to see the signs. People are blind to their doings, and we are laughed at when we try to warn you. The Illuminati are amongst us. WAKE UP! SHEEPLE!

Morost - Solace In Solitude
Review by Susan
8.9
Morost's brand of death metal is quite groovy, with strong drumming and blast beats in all the right places, while a thundering bass leads us through the darkness. Yet, there is so much beauty and emotion in Solace In Solitude. These Slovenians carry the label "Progressive Death Metal" and I can get right in line behind that. It's decidedly extreme metal, but the shards of melody that slice their way into this music will equally...

Deus X Machina - X
Review by Susan
7.0
Deus X Machina's X is power metal with strong heavy metal leanings. These Argentines released a debut that comes out of the gate with mountains of energy to spare, a classic metal influence, and a singer with strong high notes even a dog can't hear. The opening track even reminded me of Hibria's debut Defying The Rules: The Power Metal Version. The youthful energy here is the main selling point; each listen was exciting and I couldn't...

Ravenscry - The Attraction Of Opposites
Review by dismaleuphony
9.1
Ravenscry's second full-length takes everything from their debut, improves on it, experiments even more, and offers thirteen songs of absorbing, introverted melodies that have had me returning to the album for months now.

Bloodtruth - Obedience
Review by Ilham
5.7
I'm tired and angry. I won't make the slightest effort to make this review interesting, or easy to read. Nor will I try to be original. And I certainly won't resort to intricate sentences to make this longer than it has to be. Why would I put more work into this than Bloodtruth did when writing the album?

Phosphorus - Assassinat
Review by Doc Godin
8.2
There's really something special about finding a band like this - young, energetic and untainted by over-familiarity. Hearing Phosphorus' full-length debut is akin to hearing Absu or Skeletonwitch for the first time all over again.

Silent Planet - The Night God Slept
Review by Ilham
8.5
The best thing about growing older is not knowing yourself better, but coming to the realisation you actually don't know that much. I never would have thought an album by a Christian metalcore band could actually move the doubtful heart of a hardened atheist such as mine. Silent Planet tamed the cold bitch in me for the short while I needed to write this review. I'll proceed to tell you how.

United Progressive Fraternity - Fall In Love With The World
Prog

A cheesy band name if there ever was one but, man, do these Australians make up for it music-wise. Of course this won't come as a surprise to those of you who know the now defunct Unitopia. To the rest of you I can only advise to trust my judgement. This here is one spectacular progressive rock album.

Try the teaser or listen to "Intersection."

Damnation Festival 2014 - Leeds, England, 1st November 2014 22.11

School, university, jobs, relationships... a lot can change in ten years. There might not be too many consistencies in life these days, but for the past ten years, the Damnation Festival has been a must - a necessity - for anyone who appreciates this kind of music. With the move to Leeds the festival grew bigger than probably anyone expected it to, and as we find ourselves in the year 2014 the festival is a streamlined, professional operation for all to enjoy.

Hedvig Mollestad Trio - Sinilind, Tallinn, Estonia, 25.10.2014 07.11

The less you know, the better it is. This seems to be a recurring pattern with smaller gigs. It holds true that the lower your expectations are for a class act, the more room you have for a pleasant surprise. Even though I didn't go into this instrumental jazz-influenced rock night blindfolded, so to say, I wasn't nearly prepared for a concert this excellent. (by Ivor)   Read more ››

An Autumn For Crippled Children - Everything (2011)

"But the last day of summer never felt so cold, the last day of summer never felt so old" Robert Smith sings in one of the most beautiful songs of the later The Cure; and here it is, the first rain has arrived after a long era of heat. It's a bittersweet feeling to say the least since you have to deal with the very end of a carefree period and all of a sudden "the season of the fall begins", like Lake Of Tears say in one of their most well-known compositions, and all your...
