Enforcer - From Beyond
Review by deadone
8.5
Way back in 1984, Sweden's Enforcer came up with a blistering little heavy metal album called From Beyond. No, not really. But it might as well have been cause this little doozy would not be out of place in any self-respecting 1980s metalhead's vinyl collection.

Ereb Altor - Nattramn
Review by Windrider
8.2
From Gefle, Sweden hail Ereb Altor, a band playing a mix of pagan and black metal, with their new album Nattramn. Many people compare them with the almighty Bathory, their epic and pagan era to be precise. If this holds true we shall find out, but what can already be said is that the music is indeed epic.

Blliigghhtted - Zeroes
Review by Mr. Doctor
8.3
If there's one deadly sin that will get me killed, it's sloth. Shit, I even get threats of ass-whoppings if I fail to do my job. Like with this review for the Turkish Blliigghhtted. Sounds weird? Yeah, but I'm too afraid to say it to their faces.

Faith No More - Sol Invictus
Review by BitterCOld
6.8
Faith No More are back "From The Dead" with Sol Invictus, their first new release in 18 years. Sooooo is SI "Epic"? Maybe Album Of The Year? Or are you concerned "Everything's Ruined"? When it comes to Faith No More, well, for many of us, "We Care A Lot."

Undersmile - Anhedonia
Review by Apothecary
9.0
When considering the use of female vocals in metal, the thing I tend to notice is that many typically envision them as needing to be bright, airy, and high pitched... that is, giving off a more "pretty" tone than is typically found from vocals in the genre. Enter an alternative to this rather dull idea in the form of the UK's Undersmile, a doom foursome fronted by two ladies, who, while keeping things beautiful, also prefer to take their sound in a more crushing, perhaps bleaker direction.

Apothecary - Drifting Towards The Ancients
Review by Apothecary
7.0
So about a month ago, a little-known band from the States called Apothecary contacted me, asking me if I'd like to review an album of theirs. After ruling out my initial theory that the band was simply my older self sending recordings to my younger self from the future, I sat down for some music that, while somewhat trite, nonetheless has a lot of potential lurking within it.

Tribulation - The Children Of The Night
Review by Mr. Doctor

The journey these Swedes have made is without a doubt one of the more interesting ones in the modern death metal scene.

Tribulation - The Children Of The Night
Oh well.

Perhaps less proggy, definitely less death metal-ly, definitely more concise. Definitely brilliant. Don't miss this gem.

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 ››
