Craang - To The Estimated Size Of The Universe [EP]
Review by R'Vannith
7.0
Though a lot of good recent psych comes from the US and the European north, the Mediterranean is coming up with some fine examples as well. Worshippers of sweepingly heavy pysch rock jams laden with fuzz reverb and metallic angularities need this first bit from Craang, more stoner voyages courtesy of Greece. Their debut EP holds four quarters of a trip, which equates to exactly one trip. Whoa, that just blew my mind.

Eden Weint Im Grab - Geysterstunde II
Review by Windrider
4.5
If my eight-year-old mp3-player's battery had died today on my way to work, I wouldn't even have been mad. I followed Eden Weint Im Grab from their very first album on, they were a promising newcomer in the German gothic metal scene and deserved praise in various magazines. Their first two albums are awesome and the poetic non-musical album Der Herbst Des Einsamen has a very strong personal meaning for me. I even liked their last real studio album entitled Geysterstunde I when others did not (it has some good and some bad songs on it). But with its follow up, the second part of Geysterstunde, I feel like the journey is finally over.

Decapitated - Blood Mantra
Review by wormdrink414
6.6
Tech death bands usually come in two sorts: you've got the "listen to me" types, where every member fucks around competing over the listener's attention, and then you have the "listen to us" types who don't make abysmal music. Decapitated has always been part of the second group.

Planet Of Zeus - Vigilante
Review by R'Vannith
7.7
Zeus. Father of the gods. Bringer of lightning, thunder and hard rock hitting metal mayhem… and apparently he's also the mythological ruler of the southern United States for some reason.

Monsterworks - Overhaul
Review by Doc Godin
5.0
Here's the thing about being eclectic; it's only good if you can execute each and every piece with an even level of quality. This...well, I applaud the attempt, but this is like trying to listen to a meth-head explain advanced calculus.

The Haunted - Exit Wounds
Review by Doc Godin
7.9
Jesus, does anyone remember how bad The Unseen was? Good God, we all knew The Haunted weren't what they used to be, but that just got out of hand. Now it's time for The Haunted to make amends for dropping that Rise Against-tribute-turd on us. Let's just say this about Exit Wounds: Apology accepted.

Colombian Necktie - Twilight Upon Us
Review by Doc Godin
8.3
Between Cancer Bats' Bears, Mayors, Scraps And Bones, and this grimy little massive debut, it's a pretty big wonder why the hardcore and sludge roads don't cross more often (or "sludgecore" as we're calling it now, apparently). While Cancer Bats definitely put out a stomping, yet slick, commercial friendly album with their 2010 release, Colombian Necktie is all about exploiting the raw, dirty, chaotic side of both genres.

Morgoth - God Is Evil [Single]
Review by D.T. Metal
 
Mor who? Right. Another death metal band who called it quits nearly two decades ago wants to take another stab at it. Do we really need this?

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 ››
 
Amaranthe - American Beauty Car Show, Haapsalu Episcopal Castle, Haapsalu, Estonia, 19.07.2014 28.07

Haapsalu is a small and beautiful Estonian resort town by the sea. Each July its quiet is disturbed by an invasion of owners and admirers of the American car industry. Shining cars, roaring engines, burning rubber, cruising, and a drag race on the airfield strip - American Beauty Car Show has got it all. If you're into all that, it's the place to be. Naturally, this also calls for musical entertainment of varied sorts, which somehow managed to grab my attention for the first time with only one name - Amaranthe. Just because I happen to like them.

Perzonal War - Bloodline (2008)

"Bloodline" is the sixth album of the German combo Perzonal War. Unfortunately this band is not so famous and seriously I just don't understand why because their releases are really good in general and at the opposite of a ton of other bands from Germany, they play Power Metal right but Power with big balls. "Bloodline" is an excellent album of aggressive Power Thrash Metal and I highly recommend it to all the people who like such kind of music. The music of Perzonal War... (by Jeff)   Read more ››
