Album Reviews

EXIL play fast, stupid music with smart lyrics permeated with a sense of alienated bleakness. Much of the lyrical bantering deal with the above, life in the big city, and the mind-shattering daily life of modern Western society.

Crusty death metal with a heavy dose of thrash metal, get ready for this because Goregäng is going fast!

“This place sucks but we love it hard.” The Last Band and their new album, Hisingen.

Burn The Priest is back! No, don’t worry: Lamb of God didn’t just recently quit. Don’t expect new work, just covers of the music that inspired these guys to make the music they do now.

The youngsters of Turnstile are back with their second full length album! Time & Space is out now via Roadrunner Records.

“Grinding” on…
