Music Review-Annihilator-Suicide Society

Review-Annihilator to date has released 15 studio albums and has had numerous lineup changes. The running joke with fans was that when Annihilator was releasing a new record we would see a band picture with new faces. At this point the only original member would be Jeff Waters. Jeff has been guitarist since its inception,

Music Review-Huntress-Static

Review-Huntress has returned for their third record and fans of the debut record will not be letdown. Spell Eater to me was the perfect debut record to showcase what Jill Janus and this band is possible of. The follow up Starbound Beast I felt was a band who I felt fallen under the pressure of

Metal Review: My Hollow: On Borrowed Time (2015)

My Hollow: On Borrowed Time

Sometimes labeled as progressive groove metal, sometimes as deathcore, but regardless of what we want to label them as, Toronto, Ontario’s own metal band My Hollow is back with the follow-up to 2012’s Cold Dark Days EP. Their new piece of work is entitled On Borrowed Time and comes at the listener like a ten

Album Review: August Burns Red – Found in Far Away Places

August Burns Red are one of the few bands in the metalcore scene that haven’t gotten too comfortable with their success.

Music Review-Failure-The Heart is a Monster

Review-In a year that Faith No More would make their return to music, here comes another band that has not been on the scene since the 90’s, Failure. I remember Fantastic Planet and that catchy radio single Sgt. Politeness, like it was yesterday. The band that I felt was a cross between the catchiness of

Music Review-Lucifer-Lucifer I

Review-Johanna Sadonis first arrived on the metal scene in a band called The Oath. If The Oath were perceived to the “the calm”, Lucifer is definitely “the storm”. The best way to describe this band is The Oath meets Cathedral. Which is a funny reference since the guitarist is Garry Jennings who spent some time

Music Review- Category VI – Fireborn

Vinland Real Lies Silence Befalls The Crowd The Raven Reborn Beginning Of The End Descent Of The King Wasting Away Review-I am so late jumping on this bandwagon, but after hearing this cd, my first thought is…” Where has this band been all my life”? A female led band that is very powerful and a
