With a name like Custard, you know they have to be good, just to overcome that completely weak moniker. But are they good? Eh, kinda. This is their third release and the promo states that they began as a thrash band way back in 1987 - these days they're taking on the kings of power metal by mixing in acidic...

Here's a pleasant surprise - despite the horrible moniker, Everfest turn out to be a cool band, sounding something like tossing Metal Church into a blender with Queensryche. The group hails from Germany and mixes the big power chords of traditional metal with chuggy thrashing, sugary power balladry and tosses in some contemplative proggy acoustics. There's a lot of mellow...

Katon W. DePena has reanimated Hirax yet again (the last time we heard from Katon and crew was back in 2001 for their self-financed EP "Barrage of Noise", and before that, the band hadn't released anything since the mid 80s). Back in the day, Hirax received some notoriety, but remained steadfastly underground, even after other thrash bands sold hundreds of...

Hell yeah, this was what I needed to refresh my palate! Speedy power metal (emphasis more on the speed than the power... light on the cheese and nary a dragon or elf in sight) featuring a howling banshee of a singer, a shredding guitarist, a quick and clinically sound drummer, good production, good songs... it burnt a blister...

These thrashers might be from Italy, but they could have fooled me. Move them to the Bay Area, and they're right at home, because this is a killer thrash album released in a time when too few bands stick to their guns. Much like fellow Italians Hatework, these guys mean (thrashtastic) business, and they've got a mean attitude to boot...

First I've heard from Imagika, but they've been getting good press, so I've been itchin' to hear 'em. There have been several line-up changes since the group's last release, so this record is probably not that indicative of what the band used to sound like (especially since the promo sheet points out how much they used to sound like the...

Killing Machine are a metal band composed of a who's-who of second tier metal bands; not to knock their other projects these guys came out of, it's just with the exception of Megadeth the other bands never quite made the A-list. On vocals you've got the exceptional James Rivera (Helstar, who are back together! and Vicious Rumors),...

Modern thrash metal/hard rock from Italy with a hint of beer, stained shorts, drummer's socks, and something dank and herbal? Yeah, that's "Raw" in a nutsack. These guys have been around for eleven freaking years, and surprisingly this is the first I've heard of them. My ears are being punished for not...

Prey is a hard rock/melodic metal band from Sweden. The group is comprised of guitarist/vocalist and main songwriter Thomas Nystroem, drummer Patrick Johansson (also playing with Yngwie Malmsteen), bassist Peter Basecke and keyboardist Fredrik Plahn. This is predominantly mid-paced, punchy rock with some power balladry ("Beside Me" is actually featured twice, once with Thomas doing all the vox and at...

This is power metal with some prog tendencies, said tendencies mostly showing up in the music. Bits and pieces of acoustic guitar flit about, and there's some keyboard wankery to compliment the guitar riffing and totally competent rhythm section. In fact, the bass player's achieved a tone on this recording that would make Steve Harris blush...

These guys are definitely doing something different, bottom line. Combining Meshuggah-esque drive alongside Bay Area thrash and deathy rhythms, Silencer is one of those bands that is ultimately ahead of the scene. Coming by way of The End Records in the US (and Belgian label Mausoleum Records for the Euro crowd), Silencer is definitely a band built for those fond...

By now it's been established that I love old school thrash. Suicide Watch are right up my alley in that department mixing, though they mix a healthy amount of hardcore into the songs as well. Normally this might work against them except Suicide Watch found a truly great way to combine the two. Basically they remind me...

The Ordeal combines elements of chunky '80s commercial metal (think heavier Dokken) with '90s chest-thumping riffs (in the vein of early Pantera) and rhythmic vocals (ala Saliva). The gang also tosses in some keyboards for good measure and include plenty of Euro-power melody. Overall the mix of styles works well (if you can take the Saliva cadences), mostly thanks to...

This is the album that starts the third era Voivod, with the biggest difference being Eric Forrest coming in to play bass and while he's at it, replace original vocalist Snake. This is a situation that is usually very unfair to the replacement and in fact their performance is usually downgraded due to the presence the original had. ...
