Glacier – The Passing of Time (The Power Metal Crown Has Passed)

Glacier – The Passing of Time (The Power Metal Crown Has Passed)

  These dudes are so carefree, and it’s such a welcome, chill breath upon the skin. I knew they were chill when I checked out the band photo. Band photos can tell you pretty much 90% about a band and its music. So here we have these dudes just standing there, almost no emotion, against […]

Ice War – Defender, Destroyer (One-Man Snow-Hating Heavy Metal)

Ice War – Defender, Destroyer (One-Man Snow-Hating Heavy Metal)

  Nice, some actual heavy metal that’s actually good. I was struggling to understand what in the hell this band name was about since this is now a one-man power act that was originally part of Iron Dogs (known for their risque covers), and that name made sense. Ice War, like, what is that? Is […]

Marthe – Sisters of Darkness (I Believe in Heavy Metal Again)

  Sometimes something so short and simple can be so freaking powerful. Though calling this a demo is a bit inapplicable to what is really a beyond-EP length freaking beast out of nowhere. Heavy metal, doom, and all that sort of thing are so often beaten into the ground by the templates utilized by most […]

Lutharö – Wings of Agony (Melodic Toddler Death Metal)

  Yaaaaaaaaahhhhh (with a bit of fluctuating). That’s practically how all these albums start out, those scream from the heart vocals, I just can’t mimic the “epic” guitars and such properly with words so add those too. But damn does it feels moderately good this time for some reason WTF. I’m not sure I can […]

Stonecast – I Earther (I Wanter More Space Metal)

Stonecast – I Earther (I Wanter More Space Metal)

  Wow, what do you know, I was ripping on power/melodic and whatever else metal a week or so ago and here we are again. Is this the end? The artwork by Stan Decker would seem to suggest so, but I do have some kind words today, at least for Stonecast, and at least a […]

Pounder – Uncivilized (Badass Period Heavy Metal)

Pounder – Uncivilized (Badass Period Heavy Metal)

  I can’t remember the last time I reviewed heavy metal. Unlike thrash, which you still feel totally badass for listening to, heavy metal can lack that effect outside of its original context, that is, the olden times. It has a tendency to feel more dated than Satanic imagery in metal at large. Oh shit […]

Roadkiller – S/T (One-Guitar Biker Punk)

Roadkiller – S/T (One-Guitar Biker Punk)

  I was immediately drawn to the cover of this EP, because, um, look now, skeleton thing and it’s riding a motorcycle whilst wielding a chain. And it’s riding over skeletons. I mean basically it’s some Ghost Rider shit without breaking copyright law, but this album most certainly breaks the law(s) in another way. Thought […]

Sacral Rage – Beyond Celestial Echoes (Spacey Speed)

  Lol, spacey speed, you like that? Good because we’re going to keep this trip to the stars going. Greek speed/thrash space bandits Sacral Rage I’ve only heard from whispers in the galaxy and barely a solar tendril of their sound has ever come to my ears until Beyond Celestial Echoes. The album has received […]

Candle – The Keeper’s Curse (High School Bus Ride Metal)

These guys have been supremely ripped on by some sites out there, or have been bullied, if you will. I can see why, yet I have to disagree with some of the upper classmen varsity banter. Yo, Candle isn’t trying to be the best, they just want to fit in. Almost everything about the presentation […]
