Review: Type O Negative “Dead Again” [Nuclear Blast]

Reviews
Let’s continue the reviews of gothic metal reeditions! This new release of Type O Negative’s last album isn’t as good as Lacuna Coil’s new version of Comalies, and ...

Review: Wednesday 13 “Horrifier” [Napalm Records]

Reviews
Horror-themed bands are my favorite kind of gimmicky/novelty acts, and with Wednesday 13, I think I’ve found one of the most entertaining ones. This is an album that ...

Review: Cabal “Magno Interitus” [Nuclear Blast Records]

Reviews
This is one blackened death/industrial/whatever metal with a punch. While it’s not always great, this album has a rather interesting sound, and an energy and a sense of ...

Review: Lacuna Coil “Comalies XX” [Century Media Records]

Reviews
What a way to celebrate your best album’s anniversary, with a reedition that’s just as great and might even be better in some ways. So let’s use this ...

Review: Queensrÿche “Digital Noise Alliance” [Century Media Records]

Reviews
Here’s a pretty catchy album that has some good things going for it but rarely rises above being a nice but rather ordinary album. We begin with the ...

Review: Charlotte Wessels “Tales from Six Feet Under Vol. II” [Napalm Records]

Reviews
Here is a pop/metal/unclassifiable album that, while it’s not the most memorable album even for that subgenre, is really enjoyable. Once again, you must listen to this with ...

Review: Machine Head “Of Kingdom and Crown” [Nuclear Blast]

Reviews
This new Machine Head album has a pretty good dark groove. There are some heavy tracks, and some complex, odd ones, but they both work because of the ...

Interview with Charlotte Wessels

Written interviews
Since this album is called Tales From Six Feet Under II, what makes it different from the first one? They had some similarity, because they were both written ...

Review: Bloodbath “Survival of the Sickest” [Napalm Records]

Reviews
Bloodbath are back, with a big, heavy, evil album that pays homage to old school death metal and horror movies, but still can stand on its own with ...

Interview with Tomas Åkvik of Bloodbath

Written interviews
Let’s talk about your new album. The main themes seem to be death, but also environmental damage and religious cults. Yes. I guess that fits into the usual ...

Review: Blind Guardian “The God Machine” [Nuclear Blast]

Reviews
This is a strange metal epic, with catchy power metal, witches and cults, and a delicious dark undertone. We’re sure of that with the first track, “Deliver Us ...

Review: Soilwork “Övergivenheten” [Nuclear Blast]

Reviews
Here is a pretty good Soilwork album, working with interesting melodies and stories, creating a melodic death/power metal hybrid with an identity of its own. The album is ...

Review: Imperial Triumphant “Spirit of Ecstasy” [Century Media Records]

Reviews
Let’s have one more trip through Imperial Triumphant’s mix of metal, jazz and weirdness. This new offering manages to be both different from their previous live album I ...

Review: Krisiun “Mortem Solis” [Century Media Records]

Reviews
Krisiun are back to kick our asses with a loud, heavy and powerful album, with a set of nice but somewhat uneven song. Let’s look at the best ...

Review: Oceans of Slumber “Starlight and Ash” [Century Media Records]

Reviews
What a troubled, mystical and unclassifiable album. But there is definitely something special about its strange moods and melancholy. It’s hard to classify in the sense that it ...

Review: Witchery “Nightside” [Century Media Records]

Reviews
Here is one pretty fun witch hunt and witchcraft-themed album, which doesn’t always have the most interesting or memorable music but does have its moments. The first track ...

Review: Defiant “Vanguards of Misrule”

Reviews
This is some highly energized blackened death metal. Not necessarily the most interesting take on the subgenre you’ll ever hear, but it still packs a punch and kicks ...

Review: Alestorm “Seventh Rum of a Seventh Rum” [Napalm Records]

Reviews
The pirates are back! Are you ready for some adventures in the seven seas of rock’n roll? The first track, “Magellan’s Expedition” is the best intro possible for ...

Review: Saor “Origins” [Season of Mist]

Reviews
Let’s travel the Highlands, with metal versions of Scottish folk songs, or at least, pretty convincing and pleasant imitations thereof, with interesting instrumentals and vocals. Saor is a ...

Review: White Ward “False Light” [Debemur Morti Productions]

Reviews
Let’s go for a full immersion in this melancholic and strange post-black metal opus. This is the kind of album that, with its long and experimental songs, inspires ...
