Skindred: “Big Tings” Album Review

Oh hell yes! Big Tings, the new album from Skindred, is straight up fiyah! Imagine Living Colour with some badass reggae riffs and vocals and you’ll get my drift.

Sol De Sangre: “Sol De Sangre” Album Review

Out of Colombia comes the self-titled album by Sol de Sangre. Or, Blood Sun. And, once again, we learn that no one does death metal like South Americans. Sol de Sangre is an assripper in the best possible way. Even if you don’t speak Spanish, you get the gist. Imagine Sepultura turned up to 11. The musicianship on this record

Acherontas: “Faustian Ethos” Album Review

Acherontas  are “… at the forefront of the Greek death/occult metal scene” reads their press release for Faustian Ethos. Just how crowded is the genre in Greece, I’m wondering. Heavy. Screaming.

Nekrogoblikon: “Welcome To Bonkers” Album Review

Yay, a new Nekrogoblikon album! Nekrogoblikon popped onto my radar a few years ago, and I can remember enjoying them and getting a kick out of their shtick.

Hypnos: “GBG Sessions” Album Review

Any band whose press release compares them to Thin Lizzy and Judas Priest will get my attention. Priest and Lizzy are not only two of my all time favorite bands, but they are groups I have been since back in the mid-’70s until today. So, if you’re gonna try to run with the big dogs, you better be able to

Bison: “Earthbound” Reissue Review

Wow! This re-release of Bison‘s11-year-old Earthbound could have been recorded 11 days ago and still sound up-to-date and cutting edge. If you’re a sludge-lover like I am, this will totally float your barge. Heaviness abounds in slamming drums, lickety-split guitar licks, and heavy vocals. Big shout out to No List Records for giving people a chance to hear this record as
