Coal Chamber

Skulldriver – L.D.C. (Elitbolaget)

Firstly, what a fucking great name for a metal band…Skulldriver….fantastic stuff, up there with Parasitic Ejaculation, Anal Cunt and Cannibal Corpse in self determinism. Band names that evoke and accurately paint of picture as to what you’re likely to experience… Continue Reading →

Devildriver – Outlaws ‘Til The End (Napalm Records)

Dez Fafara doesn’t do things by half, and if the late Neil Armstrong was still with us today, I’m sure he would replicate his famous quote in order to embrace Devildriver’s latest venture, “one small step for man, one giant… Continue Reading →

Devildriver – Trust No One (Napalm)

Back in the early 2000’s, Nu Metal was booming, baggy jeans, chains, terribly dyed spiked hair… Don’t shake your heads, some of us thought that was cool! Anyway, for those of us who embraced the nu metal period, having grown… Continue Reading →

Demons of Old Metal – Dominion (S/R)

Coal Chamber – Rivals (Napalm)

Nu-Metal, one of the things many people my age were into at some point or other. Whilst it was ridiculed by fans of other sub-genres and fiercely defended by those who worshipped it, the ‘black sheep’ of the metal family… Continue Reading →

The Hate Colony – Navigate (Trondercore)

Hailing from Trondheim in Norway and proving that the area has many more styles played by the bands in the area than the obvious ones people would expect The Hate Colony describe themselves as ‘metalcoreish.’ The biog also mentions that… Continue Reading →

White Empress – Rise Of The Empress (Peaceville)

Well here’s something to upset anyone who quickly read the words ‘Symphonic’ and ‘Female-fronted’ and were hoping for another Nightwish! It’s not happening here kiddies, this is Symphonic Extreme Metal where Luna Mortis singer Mary Zimmer handles ALL vocal styles… Continue Reading →

Almost Human – ø (Suisa)

Not to be confused with various other ‘almost humans’ this lot are the Swiss version who simply class themselves as a metal band. Obviously there is a bit more to it than that as this nicely packaged card EP designed… Continue Reading →

DevilDriver – Winter Kills (Napalm)

I remember reviewing the first DevilDriver CD, but didn’t realise that it was 10 years ago already, or that they’ve released 4 other albums for that matter. The easy part of the review for me is that their style hasn’t… Continue Reading →
