Corrosion of Conformity - IX

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY “IX”

Corrosion of Conformity have a rich history in the annals of American metal.  While they’ve morphed genres over the years, they’ve maintained a high level of respect.  Yes, Pepper Keenan is no longer in the band.  Yes, he contributed to some of their best work in the ’90s. But don’t forget about their roots in the pre-Keenan era and get

Coldwar - Pantheist

COLDWAR “PANTHEIST”

Let me start this off by saying that Coldwar‘s Pantheist is phenomenal. It’s gonna get a good grade from me, but unfortunately, I have a few negative things to say about it. Coldwar is a machine, and on Pantheist, they are in prime form. Despite all the negative press about his choice of tattoos, Trevor McLave snarls and howls like

If that’s true, judging by the contents of Earth Crisis’ new album, Salvation of Innocents, then the only people who might be flattered are now-defunct Seattle metalheads Himsa, though they definitely shouldn’t be. The only real difference between the two bands is that Karl Buechner sings at various times

Havok - Unnatural Selection

HAVOK “UNNATURAL SELECTION”

Few metal acts today channel the early days of thrash better than Havok. Boasting a feel that recalls  Among the Living-era  Anthrax (among other genre cornerstones), but with technicality that eclipses their predecessors, they are keeping the circle pits swirling with a fury that recalls the genre’s halcyon days. Unnatural Selection, the band’s third long-player on Candlelight Records, feels like
