Album Reviews

Mantah brings you low tuned and heavy guitar riffs. Their album ‘Evoke’ gives a mix between late 90s nu metal, modern metal and metalcore, very melodic and heavy at the same time. A beautiful album to listen to, musically at first, but also lyrically when you take the time to dive deeper into this album.

From Ashes To New bring back the nu metal/rap metal sound from a couple of decades back and do it damn well!

The Krueggers deliver an album on which they managed to blend (post-)grunge and nu-metal into a balanced and engaging sound!

Cane Hill was almost “Too Far Gone”, but they managed to get their stuff in order and delivered a great piece of raw and focused modern metal!

Das Leben ist Musik! The Reiter are back with their longest and most mature album to date. The good old Reitermania is stronger than ever, but on their tenth album, horizons are expanded and new genres play along.

Papa Roach is back with number 9 “Crooked Teeth”, bolstering a mix of old school sound and a foot into the future they’ll satisfy the needs of all generations of their fans.

Mixing beauty with jagged harshness… I present you Gore!
