Staff pick
Mortals - Cursed To See The Future
Sludge metal

Albums like Mortals' Cursed To See The Future make an instant impact and grip you. Its sludge is dense with black metal leanings. The songs are long and perfectly structured because the transitions are smart. While there are moments of trance, it's the piercing vocals which guide you through the hostility and gloom of the music. Melodious yet aggressive, Cursed To See The Future has filth in good measure. The slimy and cavernous riffs easily lull you into the abyss.

Take the plunge!

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 ››
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.

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 ››
