Blaze Bayley – December Wind (Blaze Bayley Recordings)

Anyone who knows me will know one thing. I love Iron Maiden, obsession doesn’t even cover it, I wear my Maiden concerts upon my sleeve like badges of honour and take great delight in regaling unfortunates in my tales of witnessing the titans of Heavy.. Read More

Arsis – Visitant (Agonia)

I personally feel that Melodic Death Metal is under some sort of constant attack, and in part I can understand that. In a lot of ways I view the genre as a sort of bridging gap between underground and mainstream Metal. Yet that said At.. Read More

Eternal Rot- Cadaverine (Godz Ov War)

All Metal genres are brutally saturated with material, from good to bad, for better or for worse. But with each good and each bad sub-genre there is an undying dedicated fan base. If you wanted to you could listen to nothing but Old School Death.. Read More

Iron Void – Excalibur (Shadow Kingdom)

Doom Metal might sound like the most earth shattering, misery stricken genre of music ever but there is a certain inoffensive quality about it. Having its roots firmly planted in the beginnings of Metal with Black Sabbath there is surely no Metalhead that doesn’t enjoy.. Read More

Esoctrilihum – Inhüma (I, Voidhanger)

How long should an artist wait before releasing a new album? Is a consistent output merely the result of quantity over quality or is it a feasible expectation to demand new music sooner. If we look to the past and as an example the works.. Read More

Vanhelgd – Deimos Sanktuarium (Pulverised)

There are certain achievements that bands seem to hold in high regard, anniversaries, number of releases and so forth. Naturally this sort of egotistical self-awarding comes with a sort of uprising from fans whereby they equally appear to share the bands joy. Although this can.. Read More

Benighted – Dogs Always Bite Harder Than Their Master (Season Of Mist)

Some artists seem cursed to linger upon the precipice of success, the lustful ear of total domination is but a hair’s breadth away. How must it feel to be linked with this desperate struggle? I imagine it to be rather punishing like a consistent uphill.. Read More

Terrorizer – Caustic Attack (The End)

When the status of legendary is bestowed upon a band there are all manner of complications. Although this undying crown brings popularity and bravado it also brings expectation and critique. Many a band has released a stand out testament to music that shakes foundations and.. Read More

Deathhammer- Chained To Hell (Hells Headbangers)
