Album Review: Wintersun - The Forest Seasons

With the exception of solo projects, rarely in metal is reviewing an album considered reviewing the artist behind it, but with Jari Mäenpää this is definitely the case. In 2004 Jari released the debut album of his pet project Wintersun and made bold claims about spearheading a sub-genre called “sym...

Album Review: Demise Of The Enthroned - Angelicide

I think back to the times of headbanging to Cannibal Corpse covers at the local civic center and say to myself, "Those were the days." But when Cannibal Corpse covers become Avenged Sevenfold covers and straight long hair turns to straight edge tattoos there's no going back; or so I thought.

“Cassettes In 2017, What Should I Know?” Part 1 of 2

  If you haven't heard the hipster news buzz, cassette tapes are cool again. In 2016 cassette sales were up 74% in the US; but don’t be fooled by the huge percentage, that’s still only 0.06% of US physical music sales and 0.01% of US total music sales. So why the rise in sales? Maybe we can blame t...

With releases like Destroyer 666’s Wildfire, Vektor’s Terminal Redux, Insomnium’s Winter’s Gate, Mithras’ On Strange Loops, and Dark Tranquillity’s Atoma, I’d say the year has been decently rich with releases I’ll be listening to for a long while. There was one band however that certainly stood out...

Roadtrip Setlist Mini-Reviews: Bloody Hammers - A Lovely Sort Of Death Released in 2016, A Lovely Sort Of Death by US-based Bloody Hammers features an interesting mix of something reminiscent of Type O-Negative with some kind of 80s goth and maybe a bit of the doomy-er portions of Triptykon or Celtic Frost.
