Employing a tribal groove and anti-Communist lyrics barked out in decipherable fashion something akin to a mishmash of the groove of Soulfly, but favoring the death metal influence over nu-metalisms and a vocal delivery something akin to a less razory version of Coldworker's Joel Fornbrant and a more audible, less evil version of David Vincent - admittedly a personal favorite...

Anathema is an enigma. Crawling out of the primordial ooze of northern England's early-'90s doom scene, they quickly became one of the founding stones of the genre. Then, someone in the band got far too interested in Pink Floyd and their sound meandered for a few albums as they struggled to fuse a more melancholic, atmospheric rock with their decidely...

A Moment in Time is Anathema's second DVD release since their last album back in 2003 and is somewhat arguably the weaker of the two. The DVD includes their entire concert at the 2006 MetalMania Festival in Katowice, Poland, and an additional four songs from a 2004 performance in Krakow. For those not in the know, Anathema is a legendary...

No discussion of Tucson, Arizona's Atrophy can be undertaken without mentioning my old roommate in the Hell House, Krazy Ken. Several years before he rented out the back bedroom in my house, Ken had given me a mix tape featuring a ton of thrash metal. I knew about half the bands, but some were unknowns to...

Krazy Ken's grandmother lived in Arizona, and he was always heading out there on vacation with his family. This explains why Ken was so familiar with the Arizona thrash scene, championing bands like Sacred Reich, Flotsam and Jetsam, and Atrophy... bands we'd never heard of before. Good thing Ken had his stubby ears to the...

This is not the Behemoth you most likely know and love, though it is indeed Nergal. This is from their past when they were a straight up black metal band. They did it pretty well too. That said I have to admit I'm much more of a fan of the direction they took on Satanica, still my...

Chaotica is a collection of old tracks that most Behemoth fans will have, unless they have become familiar with the band recently. This two-CD package, which is limited, contains in its entirety the “Grom” album, the “Sventevith” album, the “Bewitching the Pomerania” EP and the “And the Forests Dream Eternally” EP.

1986 was a great era for Thrash and Black Metal. Bands like Venom were carving out their legendary status, and the second wave of bands that grew out of that legend were starting to make waves. One of the most legendary bands out of Italy was Bulldozer, and The Final Separation was their second album. Even at its release, this...

Chuck Schuldiner’s metal legacy is not so easily forgotten. His numerous Death albums are still considered by many as some of the best material out there, and, especially on the band’s later work, it virtually impossible to say that his efforts are anything less than astounding. Since 1995, however, along with some of the members of The Sound...

The eponymous debut album (which came out my senior year in high school, 1986, a vintage year for metal!) and the follow up "Transcendence" put Crimson Glory on the prog metal map for good. By the time the third album came around (originally released in 1991, a bad year for metal as the Flannel Tsunami gathered strength) they'd...

This deluxe digi-pack is a limited edition, remastered reissue of Crimson Glory's 1999 "comeback" album that also includes a 50-minute long bonus disc of demo and live recordings. The band started off with two strong (some would say classic) Queensryche-influenced prog metal releases in '86 (selt-titled) and '88 ("Transcendence"). Unfortunately they then put out a commercially-aimed clunker in '91...

Metal Mind Productions has rereleased Cyclone’s debut Brutal Destruction. These Belgians originally unveiled this eight-track thrash attack in 1986 on Roadrunner Records, in a market that was reveling in the glory of Slayer’s Reign in Blood, Metallica’s Master of Puppets and soon to be introduced to Testament’s The Legacy. Bad timing would be a serious understatement in describing...

The eleven demo tracks are taken from the band's "The Eyes of Horus Demo" (1998) and "Cemetaral Gardens Demo" (1997). They are about what one would expect from a young band's early recordings; raw production and a few...

Devilyn has always stood in the shadows of bigger, better Polish bands like Vader, Decapitated and Behemoth. There's never anything wrong with their music, it's just that no matter how brutal, technical or heavy it is, the aforementioned groups have always done more somehow. Devilyn has released three full length albums thus far, and in my...

This Dutch powerhouse only released four albums, but each one was excellent for very different reasons.

Named after a gum disease that oozes puss and generally leads to a complete 'eff you' to one's entire digestive system if left untreated, most folks should know what they're in store for when they pop Pyorrhoea's Desire For Torment into that stereo.

This is a remaster of Realm's 1990 release with an added bonus track. This is the first time I've heard the band despite being around back in the day - just as it is now, so it was then: so many bands, so little time. What can you do? I guess make up for lost time by checking this out....

You know, I'm hard pressed to say anything bad about Realm, and their album Endless War. These guys were talented as all hell, they were good songwriters, and they worked hard at what they did. They made some A-class thrash/speed metal, just on the whole it wasn't all that groundbreaking. Don't let that get in the way of a...

God, this album is RIPPING. That's the only good word I can find that encompasses the whole of it. I have always been a Sadus fan... being that Death is my favorite band, and Steve DiGiorgio's previous fame was Sadus, it was only a matter of time before I did some hunting. "A Vision Of Misery" was decent,...

I have to admit that somehow I missed out on Sadus when Swallowed In Black came out in 1990. I'm not sure how, as I was heavily into the early death metal scene; I know I had Visions of Misery when it came out in 1992. This one slipped by me until later in the 1990's,...

Solitude Aeturnus' second full length gets the deluxe digi-pack remaster treatment. Truth be told, the remastering comes across as little more than bumping up the levels, but the production on the original was solid. The guitars do have a bit more bite than they did on the original pressings and yet still maintain their grimy feel. The band is heralded...

Spinal Cord hail from Poland and play (surprise surprise), thrashy, heavy death metal on their second album, Stigmata of Life. Though the music is super dense, the production raw and excellent in complimenting the band’s brutality, these guys really don’t do much to make their material interesting. All the songs are short, fast and similar to one another...

1990 was an amazing year for metal. A brief litany of that year's releases reads like a dean's list of heavy music: "Rust In Peace," "Seasons In The Abyss," "Left Hand Path," "Cause Of Death," "Spiritual Healing," "Harmony Corruption," "Hammerheart," "Act III," and "Cowboys From Hell." Buried among such greats was The Great Kat's "Beethoven On Speed," an album which...

Vader playing live in their home country, Poland, should be an incredible, inspired event in which the crowd and the band look enthused beyond belief. There should be massive mosh pits, insane guitar heroics, pyrotechnics and enthusiasm unlike anything I’ve witnessed at a stateside Vader show. Either the seven cameras zooming around capturing the footage were missing the...

Via Mistica is a goth metal unit from Poland. They alternate female and male vocals, though the female vocals dominate however. Vocalist Kaska, who also doubles as cellist, reminds me of a hybrid of Anneke Van Giersbergen and Cristina Scabbia. Needless to say she sounds great. The male vocals, courtesy of guitarist Marecki, are of the...

I truly like this band, and have heaped praise upon them for years; but this album is problematic.

During those first impressionable years, I came across Znowhite's name a...
