Album Reviews

Wairua is the spirit of a person. Like when you die, it’s the spirit, or wairua, that leaves the body. To me, it feels like we are a spirit, and we get to go on a journey through this EP

With just under 20 minutes of music on this EP, I’m sad it’s already over. This is just the first EP that Aeon of Awareness is releasing, so keep an eye out for their releases in the future.

3 songs which gives a sense of what has been and what could have been with Bodom After Midnight. A worthy addition to Alexi Laiho’s repertoire and career. May the Wildchild rest/shred in peace.

A beautiful short EP that numbs the pain of waiting for Wolfheart’s sixth full-length album.

The debut album of promising and up-and-coming Finnish melodeath outfit I Am Your God shows us what the future of Finnish metal could look like!

Finnish melodic death metal new comers Slow Fall deliver an impressive and diverse slab of melodeath on their debut full-length!

Melodeath outfit Mors Subita is back with another release, showing off their songwriting skills on a whole new level!

Finnish melodeath outfit myGRAIN comes back with a renewed and rejuvenated sound and energy on their new release ‘V’!

With ‘Seven’, we get -surprise surprise- the 7th full-length by Finnish melodeath mainstays Mors Principium Est.

Swedish melodeath veterans Dark Tranquillity are back with their 12th album baptized ‘Moment’ and it’s quite the release!
