Downfall Of Nur - Umbras de Barbagia
Review by Susan
9.0
Few since early Agalloch have written such a stunning soundtrack to your contemplation of the meaning of life, nature, and darkness. Atmospheric, folk-oriented black metal like this can be simultaneously beautiful and ominous. There are things on this earth that are very, very old. Beware, this music will lead you directly to a life of solitude in the forest, living the bare and contented life of the hermit, brought to dwell on the mountainside....

Agnostic Front - The American Dream Died
Review by deadone
6.9
Agnostic Front are back and they're pissed. The American Dream Died and the New York hardcore crew are here to spread the word with a veritable kitchen sink of aggressive heavy music centred on hardcore traditions they helped pioneer over thirty years ago.

Chaos Divine - Colliding Skies
Review by R'Vannith
7.5
The most absorbing aspect of Colliding Skies is that it's a densely textured record in view of its smooth and approachable sound. In instrumentation, every aspect sets a well defined and accessible trajectory in progressive metal. It is a melodic vehicle for expressive vocal arrangements which project an emphasis that readily uplift the listening experience. Above all else, Australia's Chaos Divine surely aim for consistency in this latest effort.

Domovoyd - Domovoyd
Review by Apothecary
8.0
If you've been paying attention to metal coming out of Finland, especially in the past five years, you'd know that the country has seen a considerable increase in the presence of psychedelic bands within the context of the genre. In 2013, Domovoyd proved themselves as willing to get in on this action with their debut, and in 2015, they're looking to solidify their status as formidable within it, an effort at which they certainly succeed.

Getting Into: Manowar 29.03

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. It offers a different approach from the typical review format, for the curious newcomer to a well-traveled band. Manowar Heavy/power metal USA Manowar helped kick off the American power metal scene back in the '80s with their self-referential bombast and overdriven melodic metal. While their fame stems as much from their seemingly-blissful goofiness (andů 'memorable' artwork) as from their... (by ScreamingSteelUS)   Read more ››
