Album Review: Hoth – Astral Necromany (2018)

You’d be mistaken if you didn’t think that the metal genre isn’t dragon’s treasure horde of fucking nerd-ery, especially in lyrical themes and in some cases, entire genres. I know we’ll puff out our chests and stomp our feet in... Continue Reading →

Flourishing – The Sum of all Fossils (2011)

There's so much formula and redundancy in death metal nowadays that I find myself constantly on the look out for any band doing something original or unique or interesting within the genre. Granted there are bands that are trying to... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Sculptured – The Spear of the Lily is Aureoled (1998)

Lately I've really been looking for metal bands that did (or are still doing) something different, or Satan forbid, original. As much as I love metal even the most dedicated ears need a change of pace and one of the... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Alas – Absolute Purity (2001)

When I started to get seriously into metal and was just haphazardly trying everything out some of the first stuff my unrefined palette fell on was symphonic metal. Bands like Nightwish, Epica, Delain, After Forever, helped loosen my presupposed ideas... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Judicator – Sleepy Plessow (2013)

While I could go on and on about how criminally overlooked Judicator is, I too am guilty of overlooking their first two albums. See, I got hip to them in 2015 with their massively beautiful album At the Expense of Humanity,... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Syrus – Tales of War (2017)

There's a long and constantly growing list of metal bands from the 80's (and 90's, to some extent) dusting off their denim jackets and throwing themselves back in to the mix. It's hard to blame them, after all, nostalgia is... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Jag Panzer – Chain of Command (2004)

I may have mentioned it in my other Jag Panzer review, but just in case you missed that, Jag Panzer released their fucking classic debut Ample Destruction in 1984 then fucked off for a decade only to return with the disastrous Dissident... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Cemetery Piss – Order of the Vulture (2016)

Metal Archives lists Cemetery Piss' lyrical themes as "desecration" and "blasphemy." That about sums up this band perfectly. If you couldn't guess from the name, Cemetery Piss revels in expletive and vulgarity excess. Think Midnight if only they were filthier.... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Strung Out – Exile in Oblivion (2004)

Let's not bury the lead here: Strung Out are not a metal band. This is going somewhere though, I swear. Back when I was a wee little punk rocker in the 90's, pop-punk was hitting all over the place and... Continue Reading →
