Cattle Decapitation – Terrasite – Album Review

Artist: Cattle Decapitation Album Title: Terrasite Label: Metal Blade Records Date of Release: 12 May 2023 What the hell is up with that cover artwork? For the most part it is great, but the face of that creature is…well…odd. I know what Cattle Decapitation are trying to do, or at least I think I do.  Continue Reading »

Revocation – Netherheaven – Album Review

Artist: Revocation Album Title: Netherheaven Label: Metal Blade Records Date of Release: 9 September 2022 For a band that seemingly creates new material faster than you can say ‘new release’, a gap of four years between albums is something of an unexpected headline. Nevertheless, this is the reality with which we are faced, in part  Continue Reading »

A-Z (Alder/Zonder) – A-Z – Album Review

Artist: A-Z (Alder/Zonder) Album Title: A-Z Label: Metal Blade Records Date of Release: 12 August 2022 I’m well aware of the fact that the artwork of an album is not the most important thing. However, as I’ve chirped on many times, as a music lover in the pre-Internet days, it was one of the biggest elements  Continue Reading »

Allegaeon – Damnum – Album Review

Artist: Allegaeon Album Title: Damnum Label: Metal Blade Records Date of Release:  25 February 2022 I could have sworn that I’d reviewed Allegaeon in the past. I was certain of it.

Cult Of Luna – The Long Road North – Album Review

Artist: Cult Of Luna Album Title: The Long Road North Label: Metal Blade Records Date of Release:  11 February 2022 I have always struggled with Cult Of Luna.

W.E.B. – Colosseum – Album Review

Artist: W.E.B. Album Title: Colosseum Label: Metal Blade Records Date of Release: 19 November 2021 You’d think that now I’ve begun my mammoth annual Top 30 album countdown series, I’d have no more time for album reviews, wouldn’t you? Well, in the past, you might be right. But this is a new, ultra-enthused Man Of  Continue Reading »

Fractal Universe – The Impassable Horizon – Album Review

Artist: Fractal Universe Album Title: The Impassable Horizon Label: Metal Blade Records Date of Release: 25 June 2021 Another review that comes to you a little time after the release date, but one that has most definitely benefitted from the increased breathing space away from the pressure of publishing prior to hitting the shelves.

Desaster – Churches Without Saints – Album Review

Artist: Desaster Album Title: Churches Without Saints Label: Metal Blade Records Date of Release: 4 June 2021 A second review in as many days for a German band, but the contrast could hardly be more pronounced. From the up-tempo, upbeat and melodic stylings of power metal stalwarts Helloween, to ‘Churches Without Saints’, a blackened thrash  Continue Reading »

Dvne – Etemen Ænka – Album Review

Artist: Dvne Album Title: Etemen Ænka Label: Metal Blade Records Date of Release: 19 March 2021 Having been recommended this record via several sources on social media, I had a listen and took to my own social media accounts to profess that I wasn’t really feeling what I heard that much.
