PALE MARE – PALE MARE

On November 10, Toronto based sludge-rock outfit Pale Mare will release their self-titled three-song EP via Medusa Crush Recordings. Let's take a quick trip through these three tracks that were born out of a desire to make music that is loud, aggressive and full of...

UNSANE – STERILIZE

Thirty years. Unsane have been together for thirty years. Somehow, I'm just now hearing about them. Coming out of New York City, the noise rock trio have released their eighth full-length studio album Sterilize, which according to their bio is "a record that recalls...

MOTHERSLUG – THE ELECTRIC DUNES OF TITAN

Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Motherslug played their first gig in 2012, and have since released two separate EPs which were combined into a full-length album. The Electric Dunes of Titan, then, is their first true full-length album since that effort. Somewhat...

NECROTTED – WORLDWIDE WARFARE

NECROTTED - WORLDWIDE WARFARE (RISING NEMESIS RECORDS) German death metal band Necrotted released their 3rd studio album Worldwide Warfare on October 27th. I have to be honest, I've never listened to Necrotted before this album. What did I learn? I'm a disgrace to the...

LOSTAIR – AD JUBILAEUM

LOSTAIR - AD JUBILAEUM (Revalve Records) I didn't even read the press release, because with an album title like Ad Jubileaum, I wanted to keep an open mind. What I was expecting was Italian death metal, and that's not quite what I got. "Ad Jubilaeum" is Latin for "The...

GLASS MIND – DODECAEDRO

GLASS MIND - DODECAEDRO (Rock Shots Records) We don't get a lot of music from Mexico, and when we do, it's mostly death metal. It's in that respect that I imagine Glass Mind having a tough time booking shows, because I can't imagine there being a lot of prog rock...

H1Z1 – UNBOUNDED

H1Z1 - UNBOUNDED (self released) I always like reviewing bands from my area, not because I play favorites - because a band doesn't get better by pandering - but because I've seen most of these bands live and getting the chance to listen to their recorded material is a...

ASYLUM 8 – REPRESSED

It was just insanity cast into a sonic penis, shoved into my ears with no lube, and then fucked the ever loving shit out of my earholes, and at some point I was dizzy from how good it felt, you know? Fifteen minutes into it, you’re not even saying words anymore, you’d just sort of grunting and enjoying it.

BIG MESS - TRY TO ENJOY IT (INDISCIPLINARIAN) Copenhagen's melodic punk band Big Mess released their second album Try to Enjoy It back on September 29 via Indisciplinarian. A follow-up to 2016's You Know I Care, this album is 12 tracks of energetic, melodic, and...

ALTAIR – DESCENDING: A DEVILISH COMEDY

ALTAIR - DESCENDING: A DEVLISH COMEDY When I first caught word of Italian power metal band Altair, the gamer in me automatically thought of Assassin's Creed, and that alone made me want to check out Descending: A Devilish Comedy, which is actually the band's second...

APOLOGOETHIA – PILLARS

APOLOGOETHIA - PILLARS (INVICTUS PRODUCTIONS) Spanish metallers Apologoethia are set to release their highly anticipated four-song EP Pillars on November 24 via Invictus Productions. The band comments that this debut EP "explores the dark side of human knowledge, an...

JUPITER ZEUS – EYES ON THE PRIZE

JUPITER ZEUS - EYES ON THE PRIZE Out of Perth, Australia comes Jupiter Zeus. After three long years, the band dropped their EP Eyes On The Prize on October 3, 2017. This isn't the band's first rodeo, but this time, they're targeting a bigger audience: all of us. So...

ROYAL GUARD – LIGHTS & DREAMS

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...
