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.

Memest - Bastards And Liars
Ugly 70's Metal

In the vein of late-70's metal, when metal sounded, and looked, like Lemmy. Ugly. And fun.

Intervals - Part Ways With Singer 27.11

It seems like the time of singer Michael "Mike" Semesky in Intervals only lasted about a year. The band added a vocalist to the equation for the first time ever but they have now parted ways with him. What happened? Well, guitarist Aaron Marshall didn't really specify that or say much about it. Intervals will be holding an audition process for the new vocalist instead of going back to being a strictly instrumental band. (by BloodTears)   Read more ››

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 ››

Total Devastation - Wreck (2006)

You know, it rules to be human. We have one thing that sets us apart from the rest of the animals - vocabulary. Words make us self-sufficient in terms of entertainment, giving us the ability to mumble in madness. Lovely words like flowers, peace and tranquillity. Words like nuclear fire, black napalm and complete and utter, total devastation. If you know Total Devastation, then you know that they deliver exactly what they promise - a ruthless attack, capable of shearing through reinforced steel.... (by destroyah)   Read more ››
