Sannhet - Revisionist
Review by tea[m]ster
9.0
An American band that plays good black metal? There are not many, and even though Sannhet orchestrates what certainly can be labeled as "hipster" black metal (had to say it), they are pretty unique in that they have no vocals. Think Deafheaven, Altar Of Plagues or Regarde Les Hommes Tomber but without the desolate, shrieking and chthonic black metal singing.

Gruesome - Savage Land
Review by deadone
7.0
There are probably a few Death fans out there who lament that the band switched to more progressive pastures far too quickly and who believe the band should have churned out a few more Leprosy's instead. Now these fans have their wish come true in the form of Gruesome's Leprosy worshipping debut Savage Land.

King Parrot - Dead Set
Review by Doc Godin
8.3
Honestly, looking at the name, you couldn't fault someone for thinking this is another one of those Municipal Waste side projects, which doesn't set the highest expectations. Don't get me wrong, Cannabis Corpse and Iron Reagan are both good fun, but ultimately a bit disposable. King Parrot meets some expectations and blows away others.

Arena - The Unquiet Sky
Review by Ivor
 
Turns out it's not easy to come up with an apt description for the new Arena album. I've spent quite some time searching for a phrase that would round up my ongoing journey with The Unquiet Sky. Until recently I could only think of something being off about this one. Now, finally, I've concluded that unremarkable grower sums it up best. That, and that something is decidedly off about it.

Forgotten Tomb - Hurt Yourself And The Ones You Love
Review by Ag Fox
7.0
Forgotten Tomb is a pretty easy band to nail musically. Whether it's their early-Katatonia era worship or the more recent ones which bring some rocking attitude to melodic black metal, and I really like them both even if they're not extremely original.

Porta Nigra - Kaiserschnitt
Review by Apothecary
 
Alright, so we have album artwork of a weasel-looking thing, wearing a general's uniform and looking coked out of its mind, biting into a bleeding globe. I wouldn't put my money on it, but using the simple human power of deduction, I'd say that means we're in for a wild ride.

Fistula - Destitute [Demo]
Review by Apothecary
8.0
Ohio's Fistula are an example of a band whose name goes perfectly hand in hand with the attitude of their music. Like the abnormal and harmful organ connections for which they are named, these guys are purveyors of grime and are all about the nastiness: eating, drinking, and bathing in it. 2015's Destitute is certainly no exception to this, and proves that although the band aren't changing up their formula anytime soon, they really don't need to.

Noisem - Blossoming Decay
Review by deadone
6.0
On Blossoming Decay, Noisem play really angry death/thrash/grind music. Why are they angry? Is it the destruction of the environment, the implosion of the middle east, the replacement of human values with mindless consumerism? Or is it because they play mindlessly angry death/thrash/grind music?

It's that time again, folks!

Getting Into: Alice Cooper 03.05

Getting Into: Alice Cooper The articles in this series begun by our own Baz Anderson are designed to give a brief overview of a band's entire discography, so as to provide a clear point of entry for the uninitiated.

Evergrey - Factory, Tallinn, Estonia, 26.03.2015 10.04

Evergrey have been long-awaited guests around these parts. Even though they come from a country so close, it's apparently still a lengthy journey to drop by. To some, Evergrey are a band about 10 years past their prime, but their latest album seems to have gotten the blood flowing again and has gained some good attention. Regardless of the reasons, it was a pleasure to see them hit the stage in Tallinn as part of the Tallinn Music Week festival. (by Ivor)   Read more ››

Cold Body Radiation - The Great White Emptiness (2010)

Once upon a time, not so long ago from our time, black metal combined forces with shoegaze, something innovative and welcome to say the least, yet now it has become some sort of trend and enough bands approaching this sound have reached a "stardom" status amongst the intellectual elite audience or just adorers of something different of the underground metal scene. Cold Body Radiation is a one-man band, hailing from the Netherlands, blending the dreamy and/or hallucinating melancholy of... (by DerRozzengarten)   Read more ››
