Album Reviews

Out of this world musicianship, a journey through musical subgenres delivered with a groovy sauce on top of it. Parrhesia of Animals As Leaders has it all.

Pure Voivod, that is what ‘Syncro Anarchy’ is all about. Dark, wacky songs. This sonic monster takes you on an unusual ride.

After last year’s impressive fictional compilation album “Killection”, Lordi is back with an even more mind-blowing release as they unleash a back catalogue of 7 albums with “Lordiversity”!

Great rock by the talented guys from Beyond The Labyrinth, both seated in history and contemporary sounds!

With Vengeance, Twelve Foot Ninja continues to build on their path to becoming one of the more crazy hard-to-define bands within the metal genre.

With seemingly effortless vocal transitions and musicianship that surprises at every turn, Jinjer is back with the new heavy album “Wallflowers”!

Liquid Tension Experiment 3 delivers once again what they are known for. Super music food for the more nerdy musical progressive lovers out there.

Rise Radiant is the Caligula’s Horse sound pushed to its extremes: at once its most ferocious and its most touching, its most expansive and its most condensed, its most poetic and its most vicious. A mist have for the prog rockers deep inside of us.

With Virus, Haken created once again a very enjoyable progressive album with a conceptually link to Vector.

With Nero Di Marte’s Immoto, a swift blend of theatrical vocals, spoken word and grunts, dissonant filth and melodic pieces, post / progressive / avant-garde / dissonant / black / death / atmospheric metal in a clean and polished package is served.
