Sedna - Sedna
Review by Apothecary
In need of an album to prove to all the Gorgoroth and "one trve Mayhem" worshipers that black metal today is anything but confined to Satanic and dark themes? Sedna have got you covered.


Ghost Brigade - IV - One With The Storm
Review by R'Vannith
For three records the Finnish band Ghost Brigade have provided a unique example of melodic death metal progression. Basing their studio efforts well beyond generic limits and engaging the structures and tones of post-metal, they continue to issue their original and outlying style in IV: One With The Storm, but to a similar result as any of their prior releases.


Kolony - Sledge
Review by Doc Godin
Have you ever listened to one of those albums where it's quite clear one member of the band gives significantly less shits than everyone else around him/her? That's Kolony's Sledge in a nutshell.


Mors Principium Est - Dawn Of The 5th Era
Review by R'Vannith
Staving off doubts given their frequency of line-up changes, Mors Principium Est consistently prove themselves to be a vital name in melodic death metal. Not for reasons of clear originality of style, but vital for their shared vitality, a remarkable feat considering the rate at which their rhythm guitars switch hands.


Faithful Darkness - Archgod
Review by R'Vannith
It's with a restrictive rigidity that Faithful Darkness deliver in Archgod. For a band that would seize upon the frenetic kinetics of thrash in order to differentiate their position within melodic death metal, fixed tempos and a generic construct prove pervasive and limiting.


Machine Head - Bloodstone & Diamonds
Review by Ilham
Metal fans can be hypocritical sometimes.


Downfall Of Gaia - Aeon Unveils The Thrones Of Decay
Review by tea[m]ster
Downfall Of Gaia are a really hard band to place in one specific genre. Their second full-length album, Aeon Unveils The Thrones Of Decay, carries on the experimentation they dabbled with on their debut LP Suffocating In The Swarm Of Cranes. Dissonant black metal, post metal, doom metal, and sludgy, hardcore elements pervade both albums but where their debut was a bit raw, this new LP has been refined, re-tooled, and re-focused to take advantage of...


Major Parkinson - Twilight Cinema
Review by Ivor
As curious as it is, one of my favourite albums this year was released quite early at the beginning of the year. This stellar album blew me away when I first heard it and it has continued to amaze me throughout the year. I might even say, Twilight Cinema has already stood the test of time. It has definitely survived the initial round of childish excitement. Most importantly, however, each time I listen to it I'm still awed by the detailed theatrical expressiveness and beauty of this album.

Caliban - The Awakening (2007)

"The awakening" is Caliban's latest release brought to us just to prove how manly and strong they are just because not a single person on earth actually heard their 2006's album called...uhm...something about darkness; anyway, this new album is just another big german kids painted like Good Charlotte failure. I can't just point at one sucky thing within this album as it almost sucks in its entirety, but the lyrical content totally stole the spotlight as it is just a depressed...
