Metal Review: Eschaton: Sentinel Apocalypse (2015)

Eschaton: Sentinel Apocalypse

Founded in 2007 in Providence, Rhode Island, technical death metal camp Eschaton has unleashed their furious opus of technical prowess in their debut album Sentinel Apocalypse. This collection of 11 jaw-dropping tracks consisting of maddening signature changes and earth shattering drum lines mixed with killer guitar leads and riffs. Eschaton, who shares their name with

Metal Review: Coal Chamber: Rivals (2015)

Coal Chamber: Rivals

I am not sure what is more surprising; that Coal Chamber is back or that I am actually reviewing their album. By reviewing an album, I am making a statement that the album has some validity and worth. If I do not like an album, I simply ignore it and do not even give it

Music Review-Insane Clown Posse-The Marvelous Missing Link

Review-I am a late bloomer in the Juggalo pool, but I really started becoming a fan in late 2005. The Marvelous Missing Link (Lost) is part of the Dark Carnival series, but yet it sounds a little different than what I was expecting from the band. They still have their signature style all over this

Music Review(s)-Ceremonies-City Ceremonies and Black Mare-Field of the Host

Review-Ceremonies is a band comprised of Marcus Bergman and Malin Dahlberg. I became familiar with Malin’s vocals from a band called We are Soldiers We Have Guns. If you been on this site or seen any social media outlet I post in, you will know this band from the songs Electricity and November that I

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. Aelter is the ambient solo project from Blake Green known for its dreary gothic style desperation sounds. Aelter IV: Love Eternal is no different in that manner. Consisting

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
