Frozen Soul – Glacial Domination – Album Review

Artist: Frozen Soul Album Title: Glacial Domination Label: Century Media Records Date of Release: 19 May 2023 Sometimes, when you’ve had a bad day, you just need to let off some steam, and listen to some brutal, uncompromising music. You’ve had a bad day at the office, the Government do something else to wind you  Continue Reading »

Insomnium – Anno 1696 – Album Review

Artist: Insomnium Album Title: Anno 1696 Label: Century Media Records Date of Release: 24 February 2023 On paper, Insomnium should be one of my favourite bands of all time, and yet they are not. Theirs is an epic and melodic style of death metal that also brings folk, doom, and dark metal influences to bear on  Continue Reading »

Arch Enemy – Deceivers – Album Review

Artist: Arch Enemy Album Title: Deceivers Label: Century Media Records Date of Release: 12 August 2022 I have made absolutely no secret of my feelings towards Arch Enemy over the years. When I discovered the Swedish melodic death metal unit around the time of their sophomore album, ‘Stigmata’, I was blown away. The power, the  Continue Reading »

Krisiun – Mortem Solis – Album Review

Artist: Krisiun Album Title: Mortem Solis Label: Century Media Records Date of Release: 29 July 2022 One thing about music that never ceases to interest me, is the way in which some artists can enjoy a long and successful career, whilst others do not, despite creating a final product that’s not a whole lot different.  Continue Reading »

Witchery – Nightside – Album Review

Artist: Witchery Album Title: Nightside Label: Century Media Records Date of Release: 22 July 2022 Swedish band Witchery have been around since 1997 – that’s twenty-five years, a quarter of a century – and for all of that time, they have remained at the periphery of my affections. Over the course of seven studio albums,  Continue Reading »

Oceans Of Slumber – Starlight And Ash – Album Review

Artist: Oceans Of Slumber Album Title: Starlight And Ash Label: Century Media Records Date of Release: 22 July 2022 “’Starlight and Ash’ isn’t Metal, but its edges are.” This is the proud proclamation within the press release which accompanies the fifth album from US band Oceans Of Slumber, a band that I can honestly say that  Continue Reading »

Wilderun – Epigone – Album Review

Artist: Wilderun Album Title: Epigone Label: Century Media Records Date of Release: 7 January 2022 I’m going to level with you. I am possibly the only fan of heavy music on Earth who didn’t enjoy ‘Veil Of Imagination’, the third full-length release from Wilderun. It featured highly within many ‘album of the year’ lists in  Continue Reading »

Swallow The Sun – Moonflowers – Album Review

Artist: Swallow The Sun Album Title: Moonflowers Label: Century Media Records Date of Release: 19 November 2021 My love affair with Swallow The Sun goes back many years. In fact, I can trace my history with the band right back to their debut album, ‘The Morning Never Came’ that they released in 2003. Over the  Continue Reading »

Omnium Gatherum – Origin – Album Review

Artist: Omnium Gatherum Album Title: Origin Label: Century Media Records Date of Release: 5 November 2021 It’s fitting, in many ways the latest album from Finland’s Omnium Gatherum, ‘Origin’ should be released on 5th November, because you should expect fireworks. I wrote a review for the new Insomnium EP very recently and remarked that the  Continue Reading »

Insomnium – Argent Moon – EP Review

Artist: Insomnium Album Title: Argent Moon EP Label: Century Media Records Date of Release: 17 September 2021 I find it quite amusing that neither of my favourite two melodic death metal bands at the current time hail from Sweden. After all, it was the Swedes that invented the genre. But no. Both Omnium Gatherum and  Continue Reading »
