Element of Chaos are a progressive metal band from Italy, this is their second album. With a sharp sound, serrated riffs, and savage vocals, Element of Chaos burst onto the airwaves with the first track on the album The Second Dawn of Hiroshima. It’s quite an entrance.

Half Gramme of Soma are a Greek stoner rock band and this is their second album. After 2014’s highly enjoyable EP Marche au Noir, Groove Is Black is a well-received album by yours truly. With a voice full

Come with me to Scotland and the UK where the one man Hellripper will filet your face with his crazy throwback blackened thrash-speed metal. While Aberdeen, Scotland has their fair share of metal bands I can’t name a one, but I know of James McBain’s Hellripper. After a handful of splits with similar styled American […]

Meshuggah are a legendary Swedish progressive/extreme metal band and this is their eighth album. The fathers of djent return, with 59 minutes of progressive metal that definitely blows the proverbial cobwebs away. This is very heavy indeed. If you know Meshuggah at all then you know

This is the fourth album by German black metal band Waldgeflüster. Waldgeflüster play atmospheric post-black metal with lashings of the second wave thrown in for good blackened measure and some healthy old-school doom aspects to parts of their sound. It’s a beguiling mix and Ruinen is a highly emotive and comprehensive release. Post-metal melodies flare […]
