Nothing generic can come out of a country that produced Björk.

Enslaved - In Times
Review by Apothecary
7.8
Let no one ever have to question the consistency of the Norsemen in Enslaved. From the icy black metal of their debut, right down to the more complex nature of their recent material, the band have garnered a well deserved reputation as mature and innovative songwriters. 2015's In Times is a slightly more accessible mark in their discography, one that, while good, also feels as though it could have gone a little bit deeper.

Dysrider - Bury The Omen
Review by Susan
6.0
Formerly known as Trophallaxy, these Swiss players changed their name for the new record. Bury The Omen features symphonic metal, yes, but also a large death and melodeath quotient. It's really an interesting combo because sometimes one style is more clear and other times it's bundled into this sticky ball of genres-be-damned goo. Quite cool.

Lords Of The Trident - Frostburn
Review by Susan
 
Lords Of The Trident are doing for heavy metal what Gloryhammer do for power metal: play cheesy music in costumes with axes and make it completely serious and awesome.

Feed Her To The Sharks - Fortitude
Review by Susan
7.4
Feed Her To The Sharks's Fortitude is a solid metalcore record from a band bringing renewed passion to the genre. While the songs follow a simple formula, the band's driving rhythms and unstoppable energy set it apart. The aggression is impeccable and the melody is heartbreaking.

Burweed - Hide
Review by R'Vannith
7.3
Hide is initially reticent about its atmospheric sludge, and only toward its end will its basis become apparent.

Metal Storm Awards - Voting Closed 01.03

Last year we celebrated the 10th edition of the Metal Storm Awards, and earlier this year we observed the Awards' 10th anniversary with its own special competition. Now, finally, the 2014 Awards have come to a close. Countless bands and users alike have come and gone in those years, but the spirit of the Awards has remained the same; as we like to say, it's not about who wins and loses, but about discovering new bands. While this year's Awards had a smaller voter turnout than the previous couple, 2014 still had its fair share of friendly competition. (by BitterCOld)   Read more ››

Amaranthe - Tapper, Tallinn, Estonia, 10.02.2015 21.02

I am usually genuinely surprised when some bands come to revisit my little country in a fairly short while, say a couple of years. For them to be back in just half a year is a pretty significant achievement, especially for something as popular as Amaranthe. Well, the new album has been released between then and now, and maybe not everybody could make it to the show in Haapsalu. Given the warm reception there, it is fairly logical for the band to take to the stage here in such a short while. (by Ivor)   Read more ››

Rob Rock - Garden Of Chaos (2007)

The previous album of Rob Rock was a bit deceiving for me. I don't know why but I didn't like it a lot… Of course it wasn't bad or anything but it was clearly too generic and conventional, all in all it was just a new album of Power Metal like the ton of other new ones that we have every day in our stores… The new release is much better in my opinion with some variations (in general the songs are a lot more aggressive now) and some nice NWOBHM touches! When you'll listen to the... (by Jeff)   Read more ››
