Metal Review – Goregast – Desechos Humanos (2011)

Whether you want to call Goregast deathcore or deathgrind or straight up death metal, the third album from this German metal band, Desechos Humanos, simply rocks. I am by no means a fan of deathcore, but this album hit me like a ton of bricks and made me a fan of Goregast right away. I

Metal Review – Nargaroth – Spectral Visions of Mental Warfare (2011)

Nargaroth, aka the artist formerly known as Kanwulf but nowadays called Ash, has long been known for bringing his raw blend of black metal to us for years. With the release of Spectral Visions of Mental Warfare, we see another glimpse into his soul with a personal-sounding ambient release. This release will not have you

Metal Review – Heretoir – Heretoir (2011)

Heretoir is a young German depressive / post-black metal project that has already created quite a stir in the underground with just an EP, so at the prospect of a full-length release, we were already looking for something special. Let me be the first to say that this release is everything that we have been

Metal Review – Debauchery – Germany’s Next Death Metal (2011)

Judging by everything that this band is about, I should really not be into them. I am not one that enjoys metal that is more tongue-in-cheek than serious. I can get into some stuff from bands like Gwar and Lordi, etc., but I barely ever listen to them anymore. Debauchery is more of a death

Metal Review – Endstille – Infektion 1813 (2011)

Endstille’s Infektion 1813 marks the debut of ex Nagelfar singer Zingultus, who lends a similar vocal approach like did his predecessor, Iblis, but with a little more aggressiiveness than before. at first listen to Infektion 1813, Endstille seems up to their same old tricks. The first two tracks are nothing too specials, but once Bloody

Metal Review – U.D.O. – Rev-Raptor (2011)

Writing an U.D.O. review is not exactly a daunting task. You pretty much know what you are getting before you get into the album. The U.D.O. formula has not really changed since even the old Accept days. U.D.O. brings it straight at your face with a German metal feel to the music. The riffs are

Metal Review – Gamma Ray – Skeletons & Majesties (2011)

Since when is an EP a mini album and since when did the German power metal band Gamma Ray become a weirded out version of themselves? The latest release, Skeletons & Majesties (a mini album – not a EP – don’t ask), just got sent over to me, so it is time to review it.

Metal Review – Varg – Wolfskult (2011)

Style: Viking Metal / Pagan Metal / Folk Metal Country: Germany Varg is a band that I can really get behind these days. I loved their previous release, Blutaar. When I listened to Wolfskult, I was surprised to see that their style had actually changed drastically. Gone are the Viking Metal / Pagan Metal sound
