Album Reviews

Whitechapel has made the album they always wanted to make and they finally found what they we’re looking for.

“Rugia” is another welcoming effort from this Polish band that never ceases to impress the old and the new fans.

“At One with None” is an epic heavy metal album, masterfully achieved by the clear refinement in the songwriting.

“Churches without Saints” delivers a gritty performance from the German quartet that managed to provide gnarly riffs in the violent style of the classic blackened thrash metal.

“Royal Destroyer” somehow embodies all that The Crown has achieved in the past with some impressive scathingly brutal tracks!

Cannibal Corpse’s fifteenth album is weighty and viscerally thrilling brought by high standards, the cohesive performance makes each song sound viciously aggressive.

Anaal Nathrakh is back with yet another release of their signature blend of several extreme metal genres!

LIK’s ‘Misanthropic Breed’ is extremely powerful with infectious grooves and the bulky riffs.

Retro electronics and modern heaviness are Master Boot Record’s strong suit. His latest release is none the lesser for it. Here is ‘Floppy Disk Overdrive’.

With new elements and looking back at early successes, Ensiferum created a new epic in their career and will be looked at as one of their best for sure!
