Crossfaith - Wipeout

Review: Crossfaith – Wipeout

Bleeding Gods release Dodekathlon – Good escapist fun that doesn’t disappoint

Enslaved - E

Review: Enslaved – E

The metal word owes a lot to black Norwegian metal progressive leviathans Enslaved for their 26 years of service. 14 albums in and there still doesn’t seem to be an end to their limitless well of creativity.

Below - Upon a Pale Horse

Review: Below – Upon A Pale Horse

Review: Wednesday 13 – Condolences

Joseph Poole, aka Wednesday 13 has created a new album that is as far removed from his previous punk-rock work and comedic spin-off song covers as you can get. If you’re looking for ‘Morgue Than Words’, then you’ve come to the wrong place, but there are certainly ‘Bad Things’ here. This is a far darker and more sinister body of ...

Fire from the Gods – Narrative Retold

Fire from the Gods is a name I didn’t know of until I found it getting mentioned on the side of some of other news about an extremely known person doing their first production of an album. It brought some intrigue but nothing that really sat in my mind as a must check out simply because the band that person ...
