Exploration: Forbidden – Omega Wave (2010)

I know Forbidden is considered one of the more underrated American thrash band but aside from their debut album Forbidden Evil I think their career is a bit spotty. They fell victim to the dreaded 90's thrash killer and tried to adjust... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Aldaaron – Nous Reviendrons Immortels (2010)

When this was shared with my I saw the name Aldaaron and thought" fucking sweet, that's the planet they blow up in Star Wars!" But upon actually looking at the album and seeing a depiction of the Battle of Helm's... Continue Reading →

Nominon – Monumentomb (2010)

In the latest version of the awesome book Choosing Death: The Improbable History of Death Metal & Grindcore there's a section in the back breaking down the author's "must hear" death and grind albums of any given year from the 80's all... Continue Reading →

Bran Barr – Sidh (2010)

Remember how awesome Heol Telwen were in yesterday's post? How could you forget? Well, they only released that one full-length then disappeared in a cloud of folk metal mastery. Luckily for us a couple members went on to make Bran Barr's Sidh album... Continue Reading →

I've been so fucking angry at the world as of late and with the new Kreator and Overkill albums coming out mere weeks apart, thrash has been taking up a lot of my listening time. Especially when driving, which there... Continue Reading →

Jaldaboath – The Rise of the Heraldic Beast (2010)

Are you ready for some comedy? Humor is not something that metal is really known for, at least not intentionally. I think you have to have a healthy sense of humor when wading through the darker realms of metal considering... Continue Reading →

Dofka – Humanity Bleak (2010)

A song from this album was sent to my by my buddy with the preface of "the drummer from Nechochwen sings on this album." Fucking rad! I love Nechochwen and their neo-folk, atmospheric black metal. This should be awesome. Hitting... Continue Reading →

Drapsnatt – Hymner Till Undergangen (2010)

Guess what? It’s Swedish time again! That’s right, the land of never ending metal treasure rears it’s plentiful head again in the form of Drapsnatt, a black metal duo. Drapsnatt eschews the more typical, hyper melodic, grim Swedish black metal... Continue Reading →
