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. And yet, upon further investigation, I am grossly mistaken. Thank heavens I didn’t lay a wager on it, that’s all I can say. It’s  Continue Reading »

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 »

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 »

Dessiderium – Aria – Album Review

Artist: Dessiderium Album Title: Aria Label: The Artisan Era Date of Release: 10 December 2021 Just when I thought I’d completed all my reviews for 2021, I’m presented with another promo that I simply could not ignore. The album is entitled ‘Aria’, and it’s the fourth album from the mind and hands of US musician,  Continue Reading »

Be’lakor – Coherence – Album Review

Artist: Be’lakor Album Title: Coherence Label: Napalm Records Date of Release:  29 October 2021 I’ve been very slow on the uptake of Be’lakor, the Australian melodic death metal quintet, because ‘Coherence’ is their fifth album, but only the second one that I have heard and reviewed. I hear lots of great things about their first  Continue Reading »

Alluvial – Sarcoma – Album Review

Artist: Alluvial Album Title: Sarcoma Label: Nuclear Blast Date of Release: 28 May 2021 Ever heard of Alluvial? Well I hadn’t, not before I was offered the opportunity to review this album. Based on some research, I realised that the reason for this might have been because the debut album from this American entity, ‘The  Continue Reading »

Aversed – Impermanent – Album Review

Artist: Aversed Album Title: Impermanent Label: Independent Release Date of Release: 19 March 2021 Less is more, right? Right? It’s the clichéd phrase that we always hear and to which many will subscribe. Not in the case of Aversed though. It’s clearly an old adage that has passed them by based on the content of  Continue Reading »

Anticipated Album Releases in 2021 – Part 3

Welcome to the third and probably, given it is now February, my final chapter in my ‘Anticipated Album Releases in 2021. Once again, I have put together quite a wide ranging mix of albums and genres in the hope that I mention something to everyone’s tastes. It is also quite a mix in terms of  Continue Reading »

Countless Skies – Glow – Album Review

Artist: Countless Skies Album Title: Glow Label: Willowtip Records Date of Release: 6 November 2020 Hertfordshire, England. A generally affluent part of the UK, the home of footballers’ mansions and many who commute to work in the capital, as well as being the headquarters of some of the countries largest businesses. It is not the  Continue Reading »

Symbolik – Emergence – Album Review

Artist: Symbolik Album Title: Emergence Label: The Artisan Era Date of Release: 10 April 2020 I am convinced that The Artisan Era must dabble in the arcane arts. Either that, or they have a hidden battery farm where they produce band after band deep in the shadows that deliver heavy and complex progressive death metal.  Continue Reading »
