Watain - The Wild Hunt

WATAIN “THE WILD HUNT”

Watain – the word and the band – strike fear in the hearts of show promoters worldwide.  The black metal legends have built an empire around their mere presence.  Their first four albums have garnered a legion of followers worldwide, and unlike others of their ilk, they are not only know for their legendary performances, but also for smell they

EVILE “SKULL”

Evile seem to be left in left field or forgotten about.  But they have delivered some good albums – mostly a thrash re-hash of Metallica, Slayer, and Kreator  – and they have stuck to this same approach on Skull. If you were around at the time when Master of Puppets and Reign in Blood were released, then you remember what

DARK TRANQUILLITY “CONSTRUCT”

As the pioneers of “The Gothenburg Sound,” Dark Tranquillity have a catalog that dates back 20-plus years.  They’ve weaved in and out of the realm of metal for quite awhile, but Construct will put these melodic death metal pioneers solidly back on the map. The album is composed of layer upon layer of extremely well-written songs.  Songs go from hypnotic

WATAIN INTERVIEW BY METAL MARK!

Watain will be releasing their highly anticipated new album, “The Wild Hunt,” on August 19th in Europe and August 20th in USA via Century Media Records. This past weekend we were invited to the Official Listening Party at Duff’s Brooklyn, and front man, Erik Danielsson, was there in attendance as well! As each song played through the speakers, I was

TESSERACT “ALTERED STATE”

I find it pleasantly frustrating when trying to evaluate albums like TesseracT‘s new 0ne, Altered State, with seamless transitions between songs (not unlike The Ocean‘s latest undertaking, Pelegial). It really has to be evaluated as a single collection of ideas that take an entire album to completely resolve themselves. That said, I won’t bother with a song-by-song here. Overall, it

SANCTUARY SIGNS DEAL WITH CENTURY MEDIA

Century Media announced on their official website today that they have signed legendary Seattle metallers, Sanctuary to a worldwide deal with the label. Sanctuary, who released two albums Refuge Denied and Into The Mirror Black before disbanding in 1992, reunited in 2010 for a handful of reunion shows. The response was so overwhelming that the band decided it was time to get the

CAULDRON “TOMORROW’S LOST”

Cauldron are an interesting band. If you were perusing a record store and picked up Tomorrow’s Lost because of a cool cover and name, you would be very surprised to hear what is inside.  It’s not  the black or doom metal you are expecting, but some cool throwback to the ’80s. It’s not hair metal, but more in the vein

TESSERACT: AMOS WILLIAMS INTERVIEW BY METAL MARK!

The amazing Tesseract will be releasing their new album, “Altered State,” to us on May 27th throughout Europe and May 28th in North America via Century Media Records! As a huge fan of this band, I simply can not wait to get my hands on this record! Their musicianship is just phenomenal, and with the addition of Ashe on vocals,

HEAVEN SHALL BURN “VETO”

Heaven Shall Burn have a rich history of metalcore. They have been the German band in this genre, although they have fallen short with their last two releases. That said, I was ecstatic at the first listen to their newest release, VETO. Heaven Shall Burn have taken the metalcore sound from their beginnings and blended it with pure death metal.

BLEED FROM WITHIN “UPRISING”

Bleed from Within, the deathcore quintet from Scotland, recently released their sophomore album, Uprising, via Century Media Records.  Three years after the release of their last album, Humanity, they have matured and prepared themselves for world domination. Uprising is a well-produced, great sounding album.  You can hear the textures in the songs, the drum sound is incredible and the mix
