  • Parkway Drive – Ire

    Anybody who hasn’t been living in a sound proof room for the past ten years in Australia should at least have heard a few Parkway Drive songs. They’ve put in enough hard yards to have become a...

  • Ritual Killer – Exterminance

    The main thing that piqued my interest about black metal band Ritual Killer was that it was composed of nearly all ex-members of blackened thrash metal band, Goatwhore. Expecting the precise, catchy and melodic riffs of the...

  • Deluge – Æther

    Quick, name one French metal band. If you answered Gojira, congratulations, you’re about as knowledgeable as I am when it comes to this European country’s metal scene. Hopefully Deluge’s latest album, Æther, will put another coordinate on...

  • The Black Dahlia Murder – Abysmal

    As a diehard The Black Dahlia Murder fan, I was eager to get my hands on their latest offering, Abysmal. I hadn’t given as much attention to Everblack as perhaps I should have, so this was my chance...

  • A Trust Unclean – Reality Relinquished

    For every generic deathcore band America churns out of its ass, somewhere else in the world a decent one is born. With the oversaturation of deathcore in the current metal scene, it can all become a bit...

  • Nile – What Should Not Be Unearthed

    What do ancient Egypt and metal have in common? Intense, gut-wrenching violence, great fashion sense and Nile (well, in spirit anyway), the mythological-influenced technical death metal band from South Carolina. For over 20 years, Karl Sanders has...

  • Buried In Verona – Vultures Above, Lions Below

    It seems to have been an anticipative year for post-hardcore fans. Aside from the self-titled album We Came As Romans released this past month, and the fantastic album Skydancer by In Heart’s Wake, the majority of releases...
