CD review FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE ‘Veleno’

(8/10) Already the first notes of Fleshgod Apocalypse' fifth album are massive . The Italian orchestral Death Metal fanatics don't waste any time and start with 'Fury'. That's the title of the opener and it's more than only a four-letter word. 'Fury' is a deadly start into an album that combines harsh Death Metal, progressive... Continue Reading →

CD review MARTYRDÖD ‘Hexhammaren’

(7/10) Martyrdöd's smashing seventh album is mainly built on two pillars. One of them are the hysteric sound vocals by Mikael Kjellman and the other one are the rather melodic guitar lines. Now, using the work 'melodic' might lead to a wrong impression since Martyrdöd has nothing to do with melodic metal or similar. The... Continue Reading →

CD review ENTOMBED ‘Clandestine – Live’

(8/10) Swedish Music Hall of Famers Entombed debuted in 1990 with the frame-smashing 'Left Hand Path' record and became the spearhead of Swedish Death Metal. The sophomore album 'Clandestine' strengthened their position and both longplayers became a solid rock in the fields of Extreme Metal. 'Clandestine' was originally released in 1991 and the idea to...

(9/10) Swedish metal vikings Amon Amarth hoists the sails, pulls the anchor and embarks on an next metal journey with a new treasure on board. This time the treasure box is named 'Berserker' and it contains twelve metal pearls, all shiny and of gloomy beauty. 'Berserker' is Amon Amarth's eleventh studio album and it is...

CD review INTER ARMA ‘Sulphur English’

(9/10) Richmond, VA is the homebase of this powerful Metal band that releases with 'Sulphur English' their fourth full-length album in their 13th year of existence. Frontman Mike Paparo describes the new album as being 'definitely a fuck-you to people' and I think it describes this longplayer extremely well. 'Sulphur English' is a raging record...

CD review DEVIN TOWNSEND ‘Empath’

(10/10) Canadian guitar wizard Devin Townsend is an extremely creative mind. Musical ideas and thoughts manifests themselves in a lot of songs, spread out over many longplayers and it's impossible to put a certain label on Townsend's music. The music is certainly rooted in heavy metal and progressive metal, but Townsend takes things much wider... Continue Reading →
