Noisem - Blossoming Decay
Review by deadone
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?


Shining - IX - Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends
Review by Windrider
I think we can all agree that Shining isn't a band that needs much of an introduction. Niklas Kvarforth and his colleagues have twisted black metal into sickness for almost twenty years. But now it is a new year, and it brought us a new album named IX - Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends. Before we go in-depth I have to mention that I never was a huge Shining fan, but since I saw them on stage last year for the first time Kvarforth's attitude left me disgusted and most interested at the same time and one has to take this sick mind into account to form the whole picture of the music. Anyway, on a musical album there still are no pictures, but only audio that counts.


Feared - Synder
Review by deadone
There was a time when the phrase "Swedish death metal" was enough to send metalheads into a frenzy. But then Stockholm got stale and Gothenburg first got oversaturated and then immersed itself in mainstream pop mannerisms and generic clichés. Things got boring or too mellow or both. And then out of the ruins came Feared with album number 6: Synder


Enforcer - From Beyond
Review by deadone
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
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
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
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."

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 ››

Artillery - When Death Comes (2009)

Artillery, the famous Danish Thrash Metal band is finally back with a new original album, ten years after their last release B.A.C.K! Maybe that you don't know the band really well, because after all they never got the popularity of European Thrash bands like Kreator for example but their first three releases Fear Of Tomorrow (1985), Terror Squad (1987) and By Inheritance (1990) are all considered as really good Thrash releases. B.A.C.K was so-so but what about this new one then? Perfect, if... (by Jeff)   Read more ››
