Atala: “Labyrinth of Ashmedai” Album Review

Me, personally? I am a huge desert doom metal fan. There’s just something about the metal that comes out of the desert that speaks to me, I guess.

Annihilator: “For The Demented” Album Review

Hey, kids … remember when heavy metal was fun? Out of the Great White North (that’s Canada, you chuckleheads), comes the latest from Annihilator, entitled For The Demented. Holy crap, this record is the titties! Imagine Megadeth if Dave Mustaine had a sense of humor and wasn’t a pretentious douchenozzle. For the Demented is an ass-ripper from beginning to end,
