High On Fire - Luminiferous

High On Fire are one of a few select bands in metal, or even in the music industry. Six albums out and none of them suck. Not too many bands you can say that about now, are there?

Luminiferous marks their seventh studio release and some highly flammable straw men might have been worried that they'd run out of ideas or Matt Pike's sobriety might fuck up their awesome dynamic…

Bitch, please.

Civil War - Gods And Generals

Civil War is a history buff's dream. Finally, a metal anthem dedicated to Lord Nelson! Someone else in the world dug up the story of the USS Monitor! And who could not but respect the musical memorialization of Oskar Schindler? Sweden's second-favorite library-bound power metal venture never fail to impress - in terms of lyrical content, anyway. Unfortunately, as the saying goes… history repeats itself.

Powerwolf - Blessed & Possessed

"I've put on the last album by mistake." These were my initial thoughts when I started listening to Blessed & Possessed; that is just how similar the opening track, "Blessed & Possessed," is to "Amen & Attack" from the previous album, Preachers Of The Night. Unfortunately this feeling of déjà vu continued throughout the rest of the album.

Akhenaten

Named after the great pharaoh in Egypt who was believed to be the Sun God, now some believe him to be an alien hybrid, Akhenaten is the creation of Jerred and Wyatt Houseman.

Based out of Manitou Springs, Colorado in USA, Akhenaten's debut album Incantations Through The Gates Of Irkalla explores the concepts of ancient Mesopotamian mythology and the culture around their deities. Although Akhenaten is based out of the rocky mountains of Colorado, the sounds are focused on a heavy blend of blackened death metal with the many exotic instruments from the ancient middle east.
