Pain – Coming Home (Nuclear Blast)

A lot of metal fans are a quite dismissive of Pain. I’ve heard Peter Tägtgren’s (pretty much) one man band as ‘cheesy industrial electro-rock’, a sort of ‘Rammstein-lite’ or ‘I Can’t Believe It’s Not Kovenant ’. Now if you’re one… Continue Reading →

Crematory – Monument (SPV)

It’s always a real treat when a Crematory album comes out, and there have been plenty of them over their 25 year journey. “Monument” is their twelfth, and while I have a great affection for “Revolution” (2004) in particular, I… Continue Reading →

Zardonic – Anti Hero (Eone Entertainment)

You might find Zardonic in the “World” section of your local record outlet but it’s unlikely. Here’s US based Venezuelan keyboardist, DJ, composer, producer and remixer with a specialist field of heavy electronic dance music with a worldwide reputation and… Continue Reading →

Die Krupps – V Metal Machine Music (SPV)

Considering these Germans industrialists have been around since 1980, actual studio albums are quite a rare occurrence for them. Sure there have been stacks of releases such as singles, EP’s, compilations and anthologies such as the excellent 2007 Too Much… Continue Reading →

Anzi – Black Dog Bias (Chemistry Music)

Everyone has gaps in their collections. Mine happens to be industrial and synthetic rock. Anzi (which even Last.Fm struggles to locate) nicely fills that gap, so my points of reference here are inevitably going to be bands like Rammstein, Ministry… Continue Reading →

Shining – IX Everyone, Everything, Everywhere Ends (Season Of Mist)

What a great album title and perfect use of alliteration, airing a complete sense of negativity and disillusionment in just a few words. It can only really mean that everyone’s favourite depressive Swedes are back with their ninth album. I… Continue Reading →

Porta Nigra – Kaiserschnitt (Debemur Morti)

I absolutely loved 2012 release ‘Fin de Siècle’ from this wacked out decedent German dark metal duo. It delivered the most compulsive and memorable song of the year in the form of ‘Meglomaniac’, one listen to it and you were… Continue Reading →

Tanzwut – Freitag der 13 (AFM)

Tanzwut are an interesting bunch. Originally formed as a side project of the grandiose medieval metal themed Corvus Corax, the “Dancing Rage” (direct translation) they have gone through a few shifts in musical style before reaching this point – pounding… Continue Reading →

Devilment – The Great And Secret Show (Nuclear Blast)

Formed by guitarist Daniel Finch, Devilment have been in existence since 2011 and gained a fair bit of buzz about 18 months back when it was announced that Dani Filth would be joining as the vocalist. Now, I’m not the… Continue Reading →

Megaherz – Zombieland (Napalm)

Rammstein proved that singing entirely in German is no barrier to huge international success. I have many album’s in Norwegian, Finnish, French, Japanese, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese of one branch or another, Taiwanese, Faroese, Hebrew, Latin and a couple of… Continue Reading →

Nachtblut – Chimonas (Napalm)

I’ve been impressed with the sheer quality of music hitting this site throughout this year. And so perhaps it shouldn’t surprise me that one of the few genres I’ve only ever mustered a passing interest for can threaten to hurl… Continue Reading →

Maxdmyz – The Hate Plane (Renegade)

As many reviewers here have said, every now and then you get a great album which stands out from the drivel and makes you enjoy this job. Sadly, this isn’t the case here. London based Maxdmyz say they have a… Continue Reading →
