Equilibrium – Renegades (Nuclear Blast)

Equilibrium are on their own musical journey – an epic one obviously, but it’s one that is increasingly keen to defy musical tags and labels. It seemed to start with 2016’s “Armageddon”, which saw them nudging slightly away from their… Continue Reading →

Forever Still – Breathe In Colours (Nuclear Blast)

Forever Still have flourished since they burst out of the blocks in 2013, and this Danish animal has established a solid and robust fan base within their genre, partly to their unwavering touring commitments and prestigious support slots with behemoths… Continue Reading →

Children Of Bodom – Hexed (Nuclear Blast)

It’s been 3 years since the release of ‘I Worship Chaos’, the first CoB album I heard, and admit to still being remiss about going back to listen to their first 8 albums. But then it doesn’t appear that they… Continue Reading →

Craving – By the Storm (Apostasy Records)

I first heard Craving from Germany earlier this year on Sex to 9 with Maria on TotalRock and promptly got At Dawn their 2013 album. Craving mix up Power metal, Folk Metal and Melodic Death/ Black Metal to create a… Continue Reading →

Equilibrium – Armageddon (Nuclear Blast)

With every release it astounds me even more how effortlessly Equilibrium straddle that gap between Pagan/Folk Metal and Melodic Death Metal whilst always staying so unique. Years ago it was a sizeable void between the two styles before Equilibrium bridged… Continue Reading →

Sound Of Memories – To Deliverance (Finisterian Dead End)

A debut full length from this French melodic death metal band is one that I will look back on and think yes that was a good album but completely forgot about it due to the amount of music I hear… Continue Reading →

Children Of Bodom – I Worship Chaos (Nuclear Blast)

I’ll be first to admit that I never really gave these guys the listen they deserved. I think I may have seen them at Wacken over a decade ago, but that’s about it. When you consider they have been around… Continue Reading →

Battlecross – Rise To Power (Metal Blade)

The album title for this fourth full length is a bold statement but typifies a band whose learning curve has been short but hectic in drawing in new listeners. Having loosely followed the band for about four years their brand… Continue Reading →

Orpheus Omega – Partum Vita Mortem (Kolony Records)

With two albums under their belt and a fast rising stock which has enabled them to support the likes of Dark Tranquility, Children of Bodom and Korpiklaani, Aussie melodic death metal merchants Orpheus Omega have a very Scandinavian feel about… Continue Reading →

Gravastar – Genetic Genesis (S/R)

Futuristic New Wave Of Swedish Death Metal on this debut album from Greek band Gravastar is what we are promised here. There are definite industrial tones and spacey feelings straight off as this sets in and prepares to drag us… Continue Reading →
