ROYAL GUARD - LIGHTS & DREAMS (SLIPTRICK RECORDS) Straight out of Voltana, Italy comes the hard rock quintet Royal Guard. Their album Lights & Dreams dropped on September 5, 2017, courtesy of Sliptrick Records. Let me tell you - this isn't an album you're going to...

SORCERER – THE CROWNING OF THE FIRE KING

The name Sorcerer conjures up images of ancient magic, towering spires, and tomes filled with well-kept secrets. In short, everything you'd expect from an epic doom metal band. Coming out of Sweden and formed back in 1998, they released their first album In the Shadow...

GWAR – THE BLOOD OF GODS

GWAR - THE BLOOD OF GODS (METAL BLADE RECORDS) GWAR are mostly known for their overly ridiculous stage shows where they spray fake blood and piss and whatever else into the crowds, but beyond all that, they actually make music and they've released their first...

BATUSHKA – LITOURGIYA

Batushka - Litourgiya (Metal Blade Records) Here's a quick question: when you think of Poland, what comes to mind? If you said gut-wrenching black metal, you'd be correct. That's where the unknown members of Batushka come from (they intentionally wish to not reveal...

TRIVIUM - THE SIN AND THE SENTENCE (ROADRUNNER RECORDS) Trivium released their eighth studio album, The Sin and the Sentence, a week ago today (October 20th for those who can't math) and h.o.l.y. h.e.l.l. is it good. Trivium likes to change it up, their 2015...

SUNWALTER – ALIEN HAZARD

SUNWALTER - ALIEN HAZARD (Sliptrick Records) You know, I just don't get to cover enough bands from Russia. I was glad to pick up this album to review. With an odd name like Sunwalter, it sort of stuck out. Sunwalter are an epic metal band, but don't let that fool you....

MONOLITH CULT – GOSPEL OF DESPAIR

MONOLITH CULT - GOSPEL OF DESPAIR (Transcending Records) Out of West Yorkshire, England (and I had to do a huge amount of homework to find that out) comes Monolith Cult, a doom metal band that actually had someone do an original art piece for their cover.  Much...

FM2000 – HUBBA BUBBA REHAB

Usually, when I hear of a band coming out of Finland, my first thought is one of the ten thousand metal subgenres. How interesting it was, then, to learn of heavy punk outfit FM2000 and their seventh full-length album Hubba Bubba Rehab which was released October 13...

ACT OF DEFIANCE – OLD SCARS, NEW WOUNDS

ACT OF DEFIANCE - OLD SCARS, NEW WOUNDS (Metal Blade) "Act Of Defiance is built around the idea of writing and composing the way we want without any other influences on the music, and if people don't like it, that's fine," says Act Of Defiance guitarist and co-founder...

VVON DOGMA I – COMMUNION EP

VVON DOGMA I - COMMUNION (Self Released) Out of Montreal, Quebec, Canada comes VVON DOGMA I, a musical creation that is, quite honestly, not for everyone. You have a four-piece band centered around the singer's (ChaotH) *ahem* NINE- STRING BASS. Nine. NINE. Putting...

THE OXFORD COMA – EVERYTHING OUT OF TUNE

Coming out of Arizona, grunge rockers The Oxford Coma have released their fourth album Everything Out of Tune, which they describe as "progressive psychedelic grunge," on Friday the 13th via Siggy Records. The album was produced by Steve Albini (if you don't know...

KING PARROT – UGLY PRODUCE

Australian thrash metal outfit King Parrot are at it again with their third full length album Ugly Produce. It's definitely got an interesting sound, if I'm being nice about it. A little bit thrash, a little bit punk, and a little drunken stupor. When I saw King...

ANCIENT VVISDOM – 33

Fans of Occult Rock rejoice!  Magic Bullet Records has another killer album under its belt, Ancient VVisdom’s “33.” 11 tracks of dark, brooding acoustic and metal tunes boiled up in a cauldron in Cleveland, Ohio, await you this October and take you along a nice,...

Canadian metal trio WarCall is back at it again with their fresh release Invaders. With their 4th release and one heavily influenced by Sun Tzu's The Art of War as well as the band's own unique style of storytelling, aim to craft an album that is as adrenaline...

NABERUS – THE LOST REVERIES

A lot of pretty great music comes from Australia, so when I heard that five guys from Melbourne calling themselves Naberus released The Lost Reveries through Eclipse Records, I was pretty stoked to hear it. Influenced by melodic death and thrash metal, the band...

SIINAI – SYKLI

Siinai is a group out of Helsinki, Finland. There is a bit of mystery to this group, which adds to the style of music they bring to the table. The album, Sykli, will be released by Svart Records on October 27th, 2017. The pre-order is available now through Svart...

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER – NIGHTBRINGERS

Anyone who knows me knows there are very few things in music I love writing about more than some hometown boys tearing shit up. Well thanks to the Michigan quintet of madness known as The Black Dahlia Murder and their new sick album Nightbringers, I'm about to indulge...

SOIL – SCREAM: THE ESSENTIALS

By now, you're probably at least a little bit familiar with Chicago-based hard rock band Soil. They formed twenty years ago, and in 2001 they released their debut album Scars, which was an amazing album. If for some reason you still haven't heard it, go get it....
