Album Review: Sabaton – The Great War

  Artist: Sabaton Album: The Great War Record Label: Nuclear Blast Records Release Date: July 19, 2019 Review by: Todd Naevestad Sabaton is the band you show to people who think metal has no substance. “Oh, do you know about the Stand of the Swiss Guard? No? Well listen to ‘The Last Stand.’ How about…

Album Review: Cavalera Conspiracy – Psychosis (2017)

Band: Cavalera Conspiracy Album: Psychosis Record Label: Napalm Records Release Date: November 17, 2017 I am not a psychologist, I am a simple Medical Deviate, but I did look up psychosis on Google and it said: The mental state of psychosis is defined by a disconnection from reality.

Album Reviews: Riot – Army of One and Through the Storm (Re-issues)

            Artist: Riot Albums: Army of One and Through the Storm Reviewed By: Todd Naevestad There’s something to be said about the old becoming new again. Videogames are getting HD re-releases. Childhood movies are getting remakes. And weird 90’s fashion is coming back in vogue. Music is much the same…

Album Review: Darkest Hour – GODLESS PROPHETS & THE MIGRANT FLORA

Matt Albers I subscribe to a school of thought that fans of metal or other loud rock music have two gateway moments in their lives. These are when one discovers a band, song, album, sound, or style that initially sparks their interest in heavy music. This first “gateway drug” is usually a more “mainstream” or…

Album Review: DevilDriver – TRUST NO ONE

Matt Albers It’s been nearly two years since founding drummer John Boeklin and guitarist Jeff Kendrick left California’s DevilDriver. Since then, vocalist Dez Fafara returned to his prior band, Coal Chamber, to release their fourth album, Rivals, on Napalm Records, amid extensive touring. The last we heard from the melodic death/groove thrashers was Winter Kills,…

Album Review: Motörhead – BAD MAGIC

Erik Harshman Well, the new Motörhead album is just that… A Motörhead album. Nothing less, nothing more. Which can be a good thing or a bad thing (like most things in life), depending on the situation and your perspective. See, for me Motörhead albums fall into one of three categories: those where the album is…

Album Review: Pro-Pain – VOICE OF REBELLION

Erik D. Harshman     I should start off by saying that I have been a rabid Pro-Pain fan since 1997, when I picked up my first (and still my favorite) Pro-Pain album (Contents Under Pressure) from Vintage Vinyl in St. Louis. Nearly 20 years later I still buy their albums as soon as they come…

Album Review: Jungle Rot – ORDER SHALL PREVAIL

Erik D. Harshman I should start off by saying that I’ve been a rabid Jungle Rot fan since 2005 (when I discovered, after the fact, Dead & Buried and Fueled By Hate). I then became the kind of fan who buys their albums the day they come out, sit and listen to them immediately, read…

Album Review: The Agonist – EYE OF PROVIDENCE

Matt Albers In March 2014, metal fans across the world were shocked to hear that after thirteen years, Angela Gossow was stepping down from her role as vocalist of Swedish-based melodic death metal heavyweights Arch Enemy. While she kept her role as manager of the band, the powerhouse metal front woman officially passed the baton…

Review from across the Pond: Anathema – Distant Satellites

Artist: Anathema Album/EP Name: Distant Satellites Release Date: 09-Jun-2014 Anathema has been one of those bands whose sound has changed dramatically over the years. Initially starting out as a Doom Metal band in the early 90s, they have evolved into a symphonic progressive rock band. I first discovered them with their 2012 effort Weather Systems which has become one…
