Pestilence – Resurrection Macabre Reviews

May 30, 2009

Resurrection Macabre

Pestilence has recorded their first record in 15 years. Expect more brutal, heavier and faster songs than any old Pestilence album. The album, entitled Resurrection Macabre, features eleven new tracks and the limited edition first print includes three re-recordings chosen by fans. Out Of The Body, Chemo Therapy and Lost Souls were voted most. The songs are lyrically more in the vein of “Consuming Impulse”. Meaning, they re more reality-style than religious or philosophical. Some so (more…)

Dethklok – The Dethalbum Reviews

May 28, 2009

The Dethalbum

There’s a fine line between being funny and being a joke. Thankfully, the debut album from Dethklok, the band at the core of Adult Swim’s hit animated series Metalocalypse lands squarely in the former category. Performed by series co-creator Brendon Small (Tommy Blacha is Small’s creative partner)–with a lot of help from metal drum legend Gene Hoglan (Death Angel, Strapping Young Lad)–songs such as “Birthday Dethday,” “Face Fisted,” and “Awaken” tap into the unapologetic musical (more…)

May 21, 2009

Deluxe two disc (CD + DVD) pressing of the 2009 album from the Metal monsters includes a bonus DVD that contains a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the album.

Lamb of God – Ashes of the Wake Reviews

May 20, 2009

Ashes of the Wake

“Violence begins to mend what was broken.” Boy, how he does it. Choosing not to borrow the pinky ring flash of the Underworld and but rather good old fashioned eye for eye justice, singer Randy Blythe croaks savagely though “Omerta.” Backed by a healthy dose of lumbering menace, the song is sung as if by vengeance itself. Violence begetting violence is a constant on this album, both in music and word; in both personal trial and world politics. Lamb of God have show their 80’s t (more…)

Gojira – The Way of All Flesh Reviews

May 19, 2009

The Way of All Flesh

Following the immense praise of From Mars To Sirius and recurring trips across the Atlantic for North American touring alongside the likes of Lamb of God, Children of Bodom, and Behemoth among others, GOJIRA established its stranglehold on the extreme metal spectrum with a linguist s touch, a lyricist s finesse, and a crushingly heavy live show that left audiences astounded, establishing the band s live performance as a spot-on recreation of the band s increasingly adept and intell (more…)

Blood Mountain Review (by Mastodon)

May 18, 2009

Blood Mountain

You could have passed it off as a fluke. Remission was an awesome album, helping revitalize metal and bringing the band much deserved notice. Leviathan was a gigantic leap, perhaps the most ambitious metal album in years. But could it keep going? People were concerned–-side glances were given, hand wringing began as Mastodon moved to a major. And for what? Turns out for nothing. Blood Mountain is flat-out amazing. If anything, it is another leap forward, both experimentaly (more…)
