Them: “Manor Of The Se7en Gables” Album Review

Them is one of the most unusual and unique acts in metal today, mixing Halloween themes with thrash metal. Their debut, Sweat Hollow (2016), was underwhelming and failed at translating their inspirations into their sound. Things are changing this year with the release of Manor Of The Se7en Gables where everything sounds much more ambitious. Manor Of The Se7en Gables kicks

Album Review: Pig Destroyer, ” Head Cage”

If age is wisdom, than Pig Destroyer are the owls of the grindcore kingdom. These Virginians have been blasting their way through violent noise for more than two decades, and while they’ve written and produced stand-out albums over their tenure (2001’s Prowler in the Yard is a prime example), their output over the last decade is unrivaled in calculated beat-downs.

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. I can’t remember the last time I listened to a promo album so many times and have absolutely enjoyed every single track that is included. These guys have been around for

Legend Of The Seagullmen: “Legend Of The Seagullmen” Album Review

Legend of the Seagullmen should be alternately titled Legend of the Supermen, because they tear it up! Right off the bat you are hit by a flowing epic guitar experience with a catchy chorus that never leaves your brain, burying itself like the earworm I believe it was written to be. “The Fogger” is the creepy song that will haunt

Tengger Cavalry: “Cian Bi” Album Review

The Mongolian metal of Tengger Calvary is something to behold, and nowhere is the magic of this hybrid more spectacular than on Cian Bi. Cian Bi marks the beautiful collision of traditional Mongolian instruments, throat singing, metal, and electronics that create a time warp tearing listeners into the future while anchoring them to the past with traditional themes that tie

Anvil: “Pounding The Pavement” Album Review

Canadian metal masters Anvil return with their seventeenth album, Pounding the Pavement, and it certainly is pounding. These metal gods have been kicking ass since 1978 and are well respected by the likes of Metallica and the late Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead. My personal love and admiration for Anvil started in the very late ’80s. They are a magnificent, hardworking, and

Fans of J.R.R. Tolkien rejoice, for the patron saints of Middle Earth metal, Summoning, have released With Doom We Come, an eight-track, 65-minute opus that continues the band’s literary, black metal soundscapes. Those familiar with Summoning’s past efforts will immediately recognize the multi-layered keyboards and atmospheric style that have been present since day one. Once again, reverberating, synthesized drums and vocals lend a dream-like, ethereal
