In Mourning – Garden Of Storms (Agonia Records)

I first stumbled across In Mourning back in 2010 when they released their second full length album ‘Monolith’. The intensity within the melodic death metal sections when combined with the subtle gothic undercurrents from their initial sounds and the slightly… Continue Reading →

Insomnium – Heart Like a Grave (Century Media)

Even though Insomnium have been around for 22 years, have released 8 albums and I have watched them several times live, this is the first album of theirs that I’ve listened to in full. And I can quite happily say… Continue Reading →

Eternal Storm – Come The Tide (Transcending Obscurity)

Spanish Progressive Melodic Death Metal quartet Eternal Storm initially began life as a band called Death Valley back in 2006. After 3 years, they changed, becoming Eternal Storm and have since spent the past 10 years honing their abilities. With… Continue Reading →

Omnium Gatherum – The Burning Cold (Century Media)

Wow! While I’ve seen Omnium Gatherum a good few times and have a couple of their albums, I did not realise they have been around for 22 years already and that this is their eighth album. Granted, there have been… Continue Reading →

Oceans Of Slumber – The Banished Heart (Century Media)

Pretty much exactly 2 years and 2 days since the release of their second album, Houston based Oceans Of Slumber have worked hard to get their third album completed, persevering through internal and family struggles to get it all done…. Continue Reading →

Insomnium – Winter’s Gate (Century Media)

It seems like Finnish band Insomnium have been going from strength to strength recently. The last couple of times I have seen them, they have pulled in a crowd that has had the venue bulging at the seams and received… Continue Reading →

Phazm – Scornful of Icons (Osmose)

Next in line for the bands-who-should-be-bigger award this year is Phazm who, arguably, only have themselves to blame after an eight year hiatus that is the sort of thing that can only really be career limiting for a band still… Continue Reading →

Omnium Gatherum – Grey Heavens (Lifeforce)

Uhm, wow! This is Omnium Gatherum’s seventh album, I have their fifth album from 5 years ago after seeing them live back then, but hadn’t actually realised they’d been around for 20 years now and had such a body of… Continue Reading →
