  • Butcher Babies – Take It Like A Man

    So, what am I taking and from which man am I taking it? Obviously the title of Butcher Babies‘ new album isn’t meant to refer to anything, it just sounds edgy and hip and makes the teeny...

  • Hate Internal – Infernus

    All hail Rutan, the king of Metalpotamia. From his stints in Morbid Angel to his highly sought production and furious death metal band Hate Eternal, everything he touches turns to bloodstained gold. Hate Eternal’s new album, Infernus,...

  • Storm Messenger – Brace for the Storm

    Traditionally-influenced metal has been creeping its way back into the scene as of late, and although there are some releases I’ve noticed that I’m not touching with a 30 foot purple floppy dildo, it’s great to see...

  • In Hearts Wake – Skydancer

    Post-hardcore is pretty much the ivy of the metal world; it permeates every crack and orifice it comes across, and no matter how hard you to try to stem the tide, it continues tenaciously grasping to existence....

  • Arcane – Known/Learned

    Crowd funding is a touchy subject when it comes to music. Obviously many bands in the metal scene often cannot sustain themselves from deals within record companies and must maintain grueling touring schedules to keep their heads...

  • As Paradise Falls – Save Yourself

    Australia, in my opinion, is one of the very few countries that are a breeding ground for curb stomping, unrelenting, fist-pumping deathcore. Honestly, there are very few other regional scenes that create “good” deathcore. Bands like Thy...
