Justify Rebellion – The End Justifies The Means (Mighty Music)

You do not always think of Denmark when it comes to metal. Sure, you have the mighty Mercyful Fate and King Diamond being the highest profile exports, followed by Power Metal outfit Pyramaze, Death Metal outfits Hatesphere and Mnemic and… Continue Reading →

Prong – Age of Defiance (Steamhammer / SPV)

NYC crossover kings Prong have been ploughing their own furrow for well over three decades and show no signs of retiring to their pipe and slippers.  The merging of a Pantera-esque swagger with an industrial edge forged through their links… Continue Reading →

Misery Loves Co – Zero (Black Lodge)

Happy? / Sad? Well you can be both now as these Swedish miserabilists are back and they are looking for company. Took them long enough though, 19 years since last album Your Vision Was Never Mine To Share back in… Continue Reading →

Ministry – AmeriKKKant (Nuclear Blast)

I think it’s best to ignore all the “never playing”, “making an album” again under the Ministry banner we have heard from Uncle Al. Things are said in the heat of the moment and following the sudden death of Mike… Continue Reading →

Albums Of The Year 2017

PETE WOODS (EDITOR): TOP 20 As others will re-iterate it’s been a crazy year for good music releases and anyone who tells you otherwise is quite frankly a fool. The biggest problem has been keeping up with it all and… Continue Reading →

Danzig – Black Laden Crown (AFM)

What I find rather amusing is that a couple weeks ago I went on a Misfits and Samhain binge and was trying to see how many music videos they had. Most are live clips with a very young and very… Continue Reading →

Akani – Through My Darkest Infernal (Demons Run Amok Entertainment)

Intercontinental collaborations are nothing new these days. With the advances in recording software and hosting sites, bands can individually compose their works and then send them to each other, continually working back and forth before mastering in studios and the… Continue Reading →

Obituary, Exodus, Prong – London Electric Ballroom 25/10/16

Unfortunately owing to a biker down on the M40 & idiots insisting on rubbernecking I missed King Parrot completely, but am reliably informed they put on a great show & impressed many this night. Next up on the bill were… Continue Reading →

Monte Pittman – Inverted Grasp of Balance (Metal Blade)

Being a guitarist can be a tough career choice. If you’re ambitious and dedicated, practise your chops every day and refine your technique to the point of where you rival John Petrucci, you might get lucky, join a band and… Continue Reading →
