Jinjer – Live Photos from The Forge in Joliet, IL!

Jinjer are a Ukranian metalcore band that have been gaining in popularity since they first hit the scene. Fronted by Tatiana Shmaylyuk, they bring a great mix of melodic and heavy music to your ears.

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

Summoning: “With Doom We Come” Album Review

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.

Cavalera Conspiracy: “Psychosis” Album Review

You couldn’t visit a metal website within the last year without reading about Cavalera Conspiracy performing Sepultura‘s Roots in its entirety on tour. Everyone knows that Max and Igor Cavalera left Sepultura behind in a very acrimonious split, so to hear them revisit that classic record was an interesting and pretty bad-ass endeavor. However, with the release of their new

Hate: “Tremendum” Album Review

Blackened death metal stalwarts Hate are raising the bar with their new release, Tremendum. The album takes their vicious mixture of styles to a level they have never been able to reach before. In fact, I honestly think that this may be their best release ever! Although frontman Adam Buszko (ATF Sinner) is the only original member of the band,

New York’s Life of Agony are poised to release their first album of all new material in 12 years this week. Entitled A Place Where There’s No More Pain, they have laid out all their proverbial cards with this release, and in my opinion, they have surpassed all expectations.
