Exploration: Phlebotomized – Immense Intense Suspense (1994)

I'm so used to being under a barrage of media that's all just part of the same constant hum of sameness that when I see something, or hear something, that eschews that monotony I cling to it like grim death.... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Odium – The Sad Realm of the Stars (1998)

When it comes to "Symphonic" Black Metal it's easy to identify the obvious bands. Emperor, Dimmu Borgir, Cradle of Filth, even Bal-Sagoth (my personal favorite) steal a lot of the attention and in the mid the late 90's when every... 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 →

Germany has given us an insurmountable amount of just fucking killer, and often classic, thrash and speed metal bands over the past thirty plus years so it's no surprise that some bands would slip through the Teutonic cracks and falling... 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: Golden Dawn – Masquerade (2003)

Golden Dawn suddenly came into my life in a weird, coincidental way. My buddy Brain Smasher shared with me a whole heap of music and when I was perusing through to get a taste of what he'd so kindly delivered the... Continue Reading →

Exploration: Killing Joke – Killing Joke (2003)

While I'm not insisting that Killing Joke is a metal band, by any stretch of the imagination, they do however exist comfortably in that "metal adjacent" category that musicians like Chelsea Wolfe or Amebix also fit in. Bands that are... Continue Reading →
