Bloodbath – Survival Of The Sickest – Album Review

Artist: Bloodbath Album Title: Survival Of The Sickest Label: Napalm Records Date of Release: 9 September 2022 Bearing in mind that I spent the entirety of the pandemic repping these guys with my Bloodbath facemask, it would feel incongruous were I not to review their latest album, even if it did drop during a period  Continue Reading »

Wind Rose – Warfront – Album Review

Artist: Wind Rose Album Title: Warfront Label: Napalm Records Date of Release: 10 June 2022 I have taken a listen to this mainly because I was asked to by a loyal and supportive reader of manofmuchmetal.com.

Battlelore – The Return Of The Shadow – Album Review

Artist: Battlelore Album Title: The Return Of The Shadow Label: Napalm Records Date of Release: 3 June 2022 Am I the only one to get excited when a band returns from an extended hiatus?

Crematory – Inglorious Darkness – Album Review

Artist: Crematory Album Title: Inglorious Darkness Label: Napalm Records Date of Release: 27 May 2022 It feels like Crematory have been around forever.

Oh Hiroshima – Myriad – Album Review

Artist: Oh Hiroshima Album Title: Myriad Label: Napalm Records Date of Release: 4 March 2022 During the near decade that I have run manofmuchmetal.com, I have had to face many of my long-held prejudices and reassess plenty of my likes and dislikes from a musical perspective.

HammerFall – Hammer Of Dawn – Album Review

Artist: HammerFall Album Title: Hammer Of Dawn Label: Napalm Records Date of Release:  25 February 2022 I’m not entirely sure why I’m reviewing this record because it feels a little like a redundant exercise.

Artist: Dagoba Album Title: By Night Label: Napalm Records Date of Release:  18 February 2022 Never having listened to a single second of any of Dagoba’s previous seven albums, this review could have gone in any number of directions.

Persefone – Metanoia – Album Review

Artist: Persefone Album Title: Metanoia Label: Napalm Records Date of Release: 4 February 2022 I desperately wanted to bring this review to fruition much earlier than this but the more I listened to ‘Metanoia’, one of the most highly anticipated metal releases of 2022, the more time I felt I needed in order to formulate  Continue Reading »

Silent Skies – Nectar – Album Review

Artist: Silent Skies Album Title: Nectar Label: Napalm Records Date of Release:  2022 I desperately wanted to dislike this album. This might sound like an odd revelation with which to commence an album review, but it’s true.

Infected Rain – Ecdysis – Album Review

Artist: Infected Rain Album Title: Ecdysis Label: Napalm Records Date of Release: 7 January 2022 Coming into this review, I knew nothing about Infected Rain.
