Album Reviews

The pillars of truth: let’s smash them down with heavy guitars, energetic drums and strong vocals. This is what As We Suffer, from Ottawa (Canada), is doing with their debut album.

With ‘Obscene Majesty’ Devourment has redefined the meaning of brutality in death metal.

Trvekvlt plays a rudimentary kind of metal music but simultaneously proves that gimmicks and ingenuity can also be achieved even by anonymous musicians.

Soen takes us on a progressive ride with music that has their signature sound all over!

Trollheims Grott delivered a relentless shotgun blast to the face with their new black metal release “Aligned with the True Death”!

Geeky good times aside, Gama Bomb still have a penchant for social commentary, criticizing current events with a sharp and witty sense of humour.

Helix is surprising. It’s catchy and poppy. But also sturdy and material for head banging. Definitely give it a listen if you’re in for something new.

Compared to his previous solo albums, ‘For the Love of Metal’ has a better sound quality, has songs that get your body moving and this one definitely makes a statement. It’s one hell of a hard rock album, full of powerful songs to rock out to. 

French brutal death metal ensemble Benighted bless us with their new EP Dogs Always Bite Harder Than Their Master.

High on Fire’s new album “Electric Messiah” hits like an avalanche of battery acid.
