Cro Mags – In the Beginning (Nuclear Blast)

Now that the naming rights have been sorted out, Harley Flanagan and Rocky George (many should know these names!) come at you with a new release which features the tracks from their two recent EP’s, namely ‘Don’t Give In’ and… Continue Reading →

Aversions Crown – Hell Will Come For Us All (Nuclear Blast)

Sometimes I have to wonder why I do it to myself, review Deathcore that is. By no means do I hate the genre but I guess you could say I mostly dislike it. There are a few gems in there… Continue Reading →

Paradise Lost – Obsidian (Nuclear Blast)

Sixteen albums… That amounts to an album released every other year of Paradise Lost’s 32-year career. Granted there are some longer breaks than a year, but that’s because they released 7 in in the 1990s. Not only prolific, but damned… Continue Reading →

Vader – Solitude In Madness (Nuclear Blast)

I think one of the main keys to a successful band is consistency. When a band has a change in sound part way through their career it often deters many fans. I think that a gradual change or light change… Continue Reading →

Khemmis – Doomed Heavy Metal (Nuclear Blast)

If there was ever a time to listen to doom metal, it would be now. It’s been a surreal and distinctly weird time for all of us; whether you’re a front line worker, or indeed just if you’ve been stopped… Continue Reading →

Witchcraft – Black Metal (Nuclear Blast)

Okay folks, I have to admit, the editor of this esteemed site put out a review list, and as I skimmed through it after a night shift of overtime I saw the words “Black Metal” and didn’t probe further, immediately,… Continue Reading →

Turmion Kätilӧt – Global Warning (Nuclear Blast)

Finnish Industrial outfit Turmion Kätilӧt hail from Kuopio and their name literally translates to ‘Midwives of Ruin’. They’ve been doing the rounds for the best part of 2 decades and have finally got their big break with a signing to… Continue Reading →

Cadaver – D.G.A.F. (Nuclear Blast)

What, where, when, how, why? Were immediate questions that hit me when this unexpected body bag turned up in my digital review files. A quick look affirmed that yes, this was the correct Cadaver, the Norwegian one, that had arrived,… Continue Reading →

Nightwish – Human II Nature (Nuclear Blast)

The release of a new Nightwish album is always a focal point in the Symphonic Metal calendar. Well, they don’t happen very often nowadays do they? Incredibly this is only the second Nightwish studio album to feature fantastic vocal powerhouse… Continue Reading →

Oranssi Pazuzu – Mestarin kynsi (Nuclear Blast)

Oranssi Pazuzu’s unique blend of psychedelia and black metal have earned them critical acclaim over the last 13 years – their name when translated from its native Finnish means orange Pazuzu (Pazuzu being a demon) and could not be more… Continue Reading →

Testament – Titans of Creation (Nuclear Blast)

Testament are quite easily one of my favourite thrash bands, and like the majority of them, come from the Bay Area. That could be because I was introduced to most of them by a kid from Oakland that was over… Continue Reading →

White Stones – Kuarahy (Nuclear Blast)

So, as I know there are legions of Opeth fans out there among you, let’s get this up straight and centre. “White Stones” are the death metal band put together by Uruguayan Opeth band member Martin Lopez. To be honest,… Continue Reading →
