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 →

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: Death Angel – The Ultra-Violence (1987)

Death Angel is one of those bands that I've just never thought lived up to the hype. Maybe 10 years ago nobody was talking about Death Angel then all of a sudden there's this air of awe and genius that... Continue Reading →

Exploration: D.R.I. – Crossover (1987)

D.R. fucking. I. If this isn't a blast from my past I don't know what is. Goddamn, I loved D.R.I. when I was a wee punk rock kid in the 90s. D.R.I., along with Motorhead, and Metallica were the only... Continue Reading →
