Staff pick
Izah - Sistere

I reviewed their 2008 EP and thought they had potential. Consider that potential realized. Four tracks, all over 10 minutes, one over 30 - including one from the EP - show they've improved significantly over the years. Well done.

Roadburn Festival 2015 - Day 2: The Known And The Unknown 25.05

Che: As you guys might remember, for the past six years or so Roadburn has been having a curator take command on this second day, a member of a fairly well known band who not only gets to headline with the band on that day, but also selects which bands will be playing on three of the five stages. This year, curating duties went to Ivar Bjornson of Enslaved and Einar Selvik of Wardruna, immediately raising my curiosity for this "Houses Of The Holistic" day far beyond Mikael Akerfeldt's curating last year.

Getting Into: Alice Cooper 03.05

Getting Into: Alice Cooper 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. Alice Cooper Hard rock, heavy metal, glam rock, psychedelic rock, new wave, industrial metal, punk, experimental rock, pop USA It would be impossible to quantify the vast influence that Alice Cooper has had on hard rock and heavy metal.

Adrenaline Mob - Men Of Honor (2014)

Adrenaline Mob have lost their drummer, Russell Allen has lost a portion of his dignity, and many people who somehow stuck around after Omertá have lost interest. Not that Mike Portnoy really strained himself on Omertá, but the band still suffers from his absence. (by ScreamingSteelUS)   Read more ››
