LINKIN PARK – ONE MORE LIGHT

Linkin Park is another band that I grew up listening to. They were one of my favorites back in the day. Another band you would've heard me blaring really as I drove past you when I was a senior in high school (when Hybrid Theory came out). "Good Goodbye" reminds me of...

THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA – AMBER GALACTIC

“…and the award for ALBUM OF THE YEAR, 1979 goes to…THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA for AMBER GALACTIC!!!!” This is how it played out in an alternate universe somewhere, where this album actually came out in the time when it deserved to come out. This album would not only...

JOHN FRUM – A STIRRING IN THE NOOS

I know what you’re thinking, this is some sort of prog dude with some kind of atmospheric progressive metal album from the nordic block somewhere. Well, that’s what I was thinking until I actually read who this was and listened to what it was. The other interesting...

DANZIG – BLACK LADEN CROWN

We are going to preface this review by begging Glenn Danzig not to punch Ken Kaizer in his face, while his review may not be WHOA-derful, he's just being honest and giving his opinion. Glenn Danzig and the boys brought us their long awaited album Black Laden Crown on...

DISCIPLINE – CAPTIVES OF THE WINE DARK SEA

A boy gets an email from his fearless leader, “Chris the Progtologist, you’ve received a new album to review. It’s right up your alley, a Prog band out of Detroit.” WHAT? American Prog out of Detroit? Are they new? NO! They’ve been around since like the late 80’s? How...

SEETHER – POISON THE PARISH

So, I was at a huge disadvantage when I drew this assignment…I’m not a fan of Seether. As a matter of fact, I’d readily and without question put them in the “also-ran” bin along with Breaking Benjamin, Evanescence, and Chevelle, although, credit where it’s due…Seether...

SEER – VOL. III & IV: CULT OF THE VOID

For the most part, the words “melodic” and “sludge/doom” don’t always seem to fit together well, but when it comes to the brand new full-length from Vancouver, British Columbia sludge/doom newcomers, Seer, this seems to be the most unusual case. Skirting the boundary...

SUFFERING HOUR – IN PASSING ASCENSION
