Album Review: Hesperian Death Horse – Ziv

Hesperian Death Horse is a post-metal/avant-garde/sludge band from  Zagreb, Croatia. Their second album, Ziv, is named after the Croatian word for “Alive”. This name fits the themes of the lyrics, which describe the cycles of life, death, creation, destruction, and rebirth. Their first album, Mrtav, was named after the Croatian word for “Dead”. They will soon have a third and final album, Rodjen,  named after “Birth”, completing the trilogy. This second installment is eerie, disturbing, … read...

Album Review: The Salvage Retrograde – Bringer Of Light

  This debut album is hard and heavy. The thudding bass lines and pounding drumbeat provide a solid structure for strong guitar riffs and raspy screams. The genre strays away from metal and into rock, country, pop, and different combinations of all of the above. If they had to be categorized, I would define them as hard rock and heavy metal. The blues-inspired melodies are energetic, yet dark and heavy. The rowdy vocals are distinctly … read...

Album Review: Immortal Guardian – Age of Revolution

  Soaring power metal vocals, wailing guitars, triumphant melodies, and just enough distortion to hint at thrash and death metal influences. Shredding solos, double pedal drumming, and heart racing rhythms make this a solid metal album. These traditional metal themes match up with progressive rock.  This band experiments with several unexpected genres, including folk music and flamenco. Somehow, it works. The album art is reminiscent of classic Iron Maiden record sleeves. The logo is another … read...

Album Review: Imperial Triumphant – Vile Luxury

  I’m listening to Imperial Triumphant- Vile Luxury put out by Gilead Media, and it is one of the most twisted and decadent metal albums I’ve heard in awhile. I haven’t heard any of their previous work, but its imaginable to see that it is probably just as dark and foreboding. The band is from New York, and it is fitting since this album paints a grim tableau of urban decay and societies’ plead for … read...

Album Review: Collector – Liberation’s Fall

Collector is an indie metal band from Boston, MA. They have recently self-released their debut album, Liberation’s Fall. This record features fantastic guest musicians like Chris Broderick (Act of Defiance, Ex- Megadeth), and Vicky Psarakis (The Agonist). The band has continued to persevere, even after the loss of their collaborator, colleague, and friend, Warrel Dane (Nevermore, Behemoth, Sanctuary), who passed away in December 2017. This heavy, emotionally charged album does justice to his legacy. The … read...

Album Review: Divided Inside – Beyond The Gates of Death

Album Review: Divided Inside – Beyond The Gates of Death

Divided Inside are a thrash metal band hailing from Albuquerque, NM. True to the old school masters, their music cuts to the bone with  raw aggression. Their surly songs waste no time. They hit the ground running with beefy guitar riffs, solid bass lines, double kick drumming, and gruff vocals. This style is a nostalgic throwback to 80’s heavy metal, when death metal, thrash metal, and punk were breaking new ground and gaining mainstream traction.… read...

Album Review: Distances- Diableries

Alburqurque based progressive metal band, Distances, are back with a vengeance. Their new material is even heavier and louder than ever before. The screamed lyrics and tremolo riffs are reminiscent of black metal. Violas and wind instruments provide a stark contrast to the crushing dissonance of the distorted guitars and guttural vocals. Far from clashing, these disparate musical styles highlight the multifaceted talents of the band. Their sound is powerful but sophisticated. There is a … read...

Album Review: Cripple – Fuck Your Comfort

Album Review: Cripple – Fuck Your Comfort

This band is “radical” in every sense of the word. Their music is extreme in all aspects. It’s fast, it’s loud, and it’s offensive as balls. Although a death metal influence is apparent, Cripple veers on the punk edge of the thrash spectrum. The simple riffs are short and catchy, with ornate solos. The violent vocals are pissed-off tirades of angry lyrics. The drums are crashing and rolling like a 7 car pileup. The result … read...

Album Review: Disasterina – LA’s Most Disastrous Drag Queen

Disasterina is a drag queen, performer, and musician based in Los Angeles, California. Her new album, LA’s Most Disastrous Drag Queen, lives up to her over-the-top reputation. Released by Entelodon Records, this album is true to the spirit of electronic dance music. Disasterina’s song structures are ridiculously catchy. This is a throwback to old school techno, capturing the riotous party vibe of classic house music. Sprinkled with elements of humor, the music is varied … read...
