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 “Worship” Hypocrisy managed to craft one of it’s best albums that combines the classic trademarks of these Swedish pioneers.

On ‘Torn Arteries’ Carcass takes us on a tour de force cycle of their musical evolution from old school death metal grindcore to technical melodeath.

“Deconsecrate” is a kind of album that will make you remember the good old days from the early nineties when there were abundant bands that played the aggressive style of melodic death metal.

Marianas Rest seeks to expand and critique melancholic melodic death metal on their sophomore album.

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!
