Occultation's doom metal eludes expectations. Contained in Silence In The Ancestral House, the occult receives an unusually mixed meaning.

Moanaa - Descent
Review by tea[m]ster
8.7
Right under our noses there is a post-metal revolution happening in the eastern European countries. It seems Greece, Russia, Ukraine and Poland have joined the party late and fallen in love with this genre, because now, more than ever, most of my highly rated post-metal albums have come from those places. Adding to this trend are Poland's Moanaa and their debut LP Descent. Using a "typical" post-metal format, Descent isn't musically ground breaking but a laudable example of what fans of this scene should want and expect.

Monster Magnet - Milking The Stars: A Reimagining Of Last Patrol
Review by Apothecary
8.0
What is a "reimagining," exactly? In the case of Monster Magnet, it means just what it seems to be implying: a reinterpretation of a previous work, taking a fresh lens of perspective to it and going all out from there. Thus, Milking The Stars is not a new album, at least not as we would typically understand the term. But in many ways it might as well be.

Anguish - Mountain
Review by R'Vannith
7.4
Further brandishing of the severed fox head signals two things for traditionally epic doom: more Anguish and fewer afforded comforts. Between you and the end is a Mountain of unembellished metal as bitter and unrelenting as the winter wind. Archaic style is delivered here without penitence.

Abysmal Dawn - Obsolescence
Review by deadone
7.4
Too often modern death metal bands seem content to imitate genre originators ala Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse or Deicide. Hence, it is refreshing to hear a band that plays traditional death metal and somehow manages to come across as reasonably unique. And, with Obsolescence, Abysmal Dawn do just that.

Vermin Womb - Permanence [EP]
Review by Ilham
8.2
Call me lazy, call me uncreative, but I am going to spare you the usual accumulation of cute little metaphors that are supposed to convey the brutal nature of the piece of music being reviewed. I'm not going to tell you to imagine how this or that feels, nor compare it to large objects entering the orifices you were or were not born with. I'll be just as straightforward as Permanence is.

Steven Wilson - Releases Collaboration Song With Mariusz Duda In Honor Of Late Fan 31.10

Here is a nice gesture. Steven Wilson and friend Mariusz Duda (Riverside, Lunatic Soul) have teamed up to record a song together, and for a very special reason. Alec Wildey, a fan and member of the Porcupine Tree and Steven Wilson street teams, has passed away after battling a cancer of the lymphatic system and liver cancer at the age of just 26. With a short time left, Alec emailed Steven Wilson to ask if it was possible that his two favourite musicians could set one of his poems, "The Old Peace" to music. To honor him, the song "The Old Peace" with Alec's lyrics is now... (by Ruin)   Read more ››

Amorphis - Rock Café, Tallinn, Estonia, 09.10.2014 25.10

Amorphis seem to swing by Estonia regularly enough in recent times that I'm slowly starting to lose count of how many times I've seen them play. With a little jog down memory lane, I've come to the conclusion that this concert was the 5th for me, and my 4th in Estonia. However, since Amorphis have put on a good show every time so far, I saw no real reason to skip. If nothing else, it would've made for a fine evening out, despite the lecture at 8 the following morning. (by Ivor)   Read more ››

Iconocaust - Judas Complex (2010)

Depending on what track you throw on first, you'll either immediately love this album, or immediately laugh at it. Take the title track; it kicks off with a riff that sounds like it was ripped straight from Ashes Of The Wake, moseys into a pretty lame, mid-paced opening verse, then proceeds to stumble around with some pop metalcore-esque clean vocals. It's not a good song. But it doesn't come close to capturing the sonic goodness of some of the other tracks on this. Judas Complex fluctuates... (by wormdrink414)   Read more ››
