Silent Call - Truth's Redemption
Review by R'Vannith
Integral and clean progressive metal. It's a rare thing to come by in this day and age when pervasive trends seem to infiltrate every aspect of the genre, to its general declination as less and less sounds endeavour to provide generic stability and assurance. Thankfully we have bands like Silent Call.


Stigmhate - Zodacare Od Zodameranu
Review by wormdrink414
Zodameranu isn't the kind of album that will get your neuronal pistons firing in any kind of unique or strained way. You could call it cruise-control black metal, and that'd be fair.


Moab - Billow
Review by R'Vannith
Billow is a peculiar undulation. Like a sprightly psychedelic will-o'-the-wisp it entices those on the watch for regular doom in a direction well off the beaten path, all to experience the short duration of unexpectedly infiltrative riff scuff. Strangely jovial things begin to take shape in the haze, and Moab happily loom over doom with an eagerness to mix an eccentric concoction.


Black Moth - Condemned To Hope
Review by R'Vannith
Merely hoping for their tunes to be deemed catchy isn't Black Moth's manner of proceeding. Cunningly combining rock 'n' roll energies and a darkly charred stoner metal presentation, it seems that they would condemn passable song writing to deliver catchy tunes by natural force of habit.


Gunfire - Age Of Supremacy
Review by R Lewis
Gunfire's first new music in ten years brings all the classic metal you could ever need.


Midnight Sin - Sex First
Review by Doc Godin
Good lord. Sleaze metal revival? Are we actually still doing this? Ugh. Midnight Sin, if this album ever had any value, it's about a decade past it's "best before" date.


Irreversible - Surface
Review by tea[m]ster
Atlanta, Georgia's Irreversible mark a return to the glorious past with their latest release Surface. Gone are the hardcore/alternative elixirs from their last two releases, Ashes and Thorn. Back are the post metal capstones from Sins and Light.


Necrodeath - The 7 Deadly Sins
Review by ScreamingSteelUS
Italian veterans Necrodeath, like many groups with 30 years and 11 albums to their names, like to play Motörhead roulette with their releases. They adhere to the same formula time after time, breaking ranks for nobody, and the quality of the album lies completely in the thrall of chance.

Pervy Perkin - Ink

In the grand scheme of things this album has got one strength and one weakness. At the core of it the reason is one and the same. This album is so packed with different and great ideas, it's really becoming ridiculous. However, this also accounts for the length of the album and the lack of consistent direction in development of said ideas and thus it appears to be all over the place. High marks for the début effort and future promise, though.

Listen to the full album over at Bandcamp.

Progventure Part 9: Green Carnation - Another Night Under The Dam, Åseral, Norway, 31.07.2014 01.09

It seems that my Progventure prog searching trips are not only a convenient excuse to travel new places, or more often the only way of seeing bands I like I wouldn't otherwise get to see, but in some cases they are turning out to be events of a fairly unique kind. Another Night Under the Dam - the Green Carnation reunion show at the Åseral dam number 3 in Norway was unique in more ways than one. And it most definitely was special. (by Ivor)   Read more ››
Rockstar Mayhem Festival 2014 - Denver, CO - 13 Jul 2014 29.07

The annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival! Great variety of bands, I always have a blast, it's always fun, the weather is always way too hot and this year's event was almost no exception. Yes, almost no exception; the timing of the festival couldn't be worse and the decision to split the Colorado show into two events didn't help the cause neither. (by D.T. Metal)   Read more ››

Isole - Throne Of Void (2006)

All fans of old Candlemass and While Heaven Wept can stop reading now and can safely go to the record store to get their mitts on Throne Of Void by Isole. What we have here is a very well-balanced slab of epic doom metal. As usual in this genre originality is of no concern to these Swedes. It's all about atmosphere and execution. Well, one thing can be said, there's nothing wrong with that on this album. Autumn Leaves is a good opener which immediately sucks the listener into the album... (by Ozman)   Read more ››
