Metal Review: Doro: Raise Your Fist (2015)

Doro: Raise Your Fist

It is simply nice to hear some good old classic metal from a familiar voice. It is so hard to be too negative on metal like this where it is bare bones metal in its rawest form. The tracks are simply well written and well sung. Classic metal with a good vocalist is easy to

Metal Review: Aelter: Aelter IV: Love Eternal (2015)

Aelter: Aelter IV: Love Eternal

April 20, 2015 marks the release date for Aelter IV: Love Eternal, the fourth album from Aelter, one of the many side projects from the Wolvserpent camp.

Metal Review: Carach Angren: This is no Fairytale (2015)

Carach Angren: This is no Fairytale

The Netherlands’ Carach Angren is back with their fourth release, This is no Fairytale, which is an aptly title release to say the least. This album is definitely not the stereotypical fairytale that Mr. Walt Disney has instilled in our innocent childhood minds. Before the tales of Once Upon a Time and Happily Ever After,

Metal Review: Hacavitz: Darkness Beyond (2015)

Hacavitz: Darkness Beyond

Once upon a time, there was a little band called Hacavitz who released 3 albums, the most notable of which was 2007’s Katun. Fans who actually got to hear the album loved it, but those same fans complained about how little originality the album contained. 2010’s Metzli Obscura received the same feedback. Fast-forward 5 years

Metal Review: Ensiferum: One Man Army (2015)

Ensiferum: One Man Army

Finland’s folk metal outfit Ensiferum is back with One Man Army bringing forth a bit of a different sound with them. The band has long fit rather neatly into the folk metal genre seldom venturing outside their familiar sound, but One Man Army finds the band taking more chances leading to a finer release. Ensiferum

Metal Review: Lykaion: Heavy Lullabies (2015)

Lykaion: Heavy Lullabies

Italian dark metal act Lykaion are back with their sophomore effort, Heavy Lullabies. The band gets lumped into this dark metal genre, which seem to be where bands get placed when they traverse multiple genres of metal. Pretty soon, every metal band will be dark metal. What can easily be said about Lykaion is that
