When I first heard that Christian Olde Wolbers and Raymond Herrera (both of Fear Factory) were working on a new band with Jon Howard and Pat Kavanagh (both of Threat Signal) I was hooked right then and there. Alas, March 3rd, the original and promised release date came and went. I had to wait until July 14th 2009, when Years In The Darkness was…

Skullage is a tour de force DVD that provides incredible insight into one of Metal’s most enigmatic axe shredders. Zakk Wylde started his career playing with Ozzy and indeed, for many years now he has been the driving force behind the legendary madman. However, Wylde has also been the heart on soul of his own project, Black Label Society, a straightforward…

If you ask a metal head what they look for in a band they will usually state these four properties: heaviness, thrash, technical and energy. These properties are the make and break standard for bands in metal. Derelict, a band from Montreal, Quebec has conquered all four on their latest album Unspoken Words.

During these harsh economic times, fans may lack the financial resources for purchasing their favorite bands’ albums. In an effort to save on both cash and shelf space they may opt to buy digital music instead of the hard copy. Enter Edguy’s solution, The Singles, a compilation album compressing three of Edguy’s EPs into…

Who let the beasts out? Hailfiring from Guelph, Ontario, Arise And Ruin have recently released their beast of a new album Night Storms Hailfire. Having already toured across North America a few times, dealing with many mishaps along the way along and losing a guitarist, the undeterred Arise And Ruin got right…

Still Remains are back, and with a killer album. Hailing from Grand Rapids, Michigan, this metalcore power house wants to bring nothing but real metalcore (not any of that pussy shit) to the fold. Even though the band has only been around for 5 or 6 years, their reputation has grown from a small band, to that of a HUGE act, performing…

Shai Hulud haven’t reinvented the wheel with Misanthropy Pure, but that’s okay, because they invented the proverbial wheel of spacey metalcore awhile back. Ah, the days when songwriting mattered more than production value and anger wasn’t conveyed solely through open-D chugging.

We’ve heard the tunes and now we get to see the videos. I’ve always wanted a Metallica video compilation, and now I have one. This is a great addition to any die-hard Metallica fans and their collections. And a fantastic starting point for any lame-wad that doesn’t know much about these Metal legends!

With bands out there these days like Killswitch Engage, Unearth, Poison The Well and All That Remains, it’s only right that Springfield, Massachusetts’ own Ligeia make the same impact on fans all around the world. This is a band that is fresh to the scene and has an amazing sound. This is one of those bands you hear and say to yourself, “right on! These guys really deserve it just as much as anyone else!”

Hardcore metal is a genre that too many new bands decide to go for. It’s like it’s a train, and they all just decide to hitch a ride. They may not even care where it’s going, as long as they have fun doing it. Dead to Fall is a band that is hardcore metal, often termed metalcore, but they do things a bit differently and as a result garner a ton of respect amongst metalcore fans.

Any band who signs a contract with a major record label only to have their disc sitting on a shelf for over a year is bound to feel like crap. Honestly, imagine how you would feel if you put your very heart and soul into your musical work and ended up watching it collect dust as corporate executives gave you the runaround. It’s highly likely that you’d be frustrated, disheartened, and just plain pissed off.

If you are a fan of metal at all, then by now you have heard (or at least heard of) Killswitch Engage. You might also have known that in 2003, shortly after recording their second full length album “Alive or Just Breathing”, due to personal reasons, then lead singer Jesse David made the decision to leave the band. This was a shock for the group and a difficult decision for Jesse…

Zack de la Rocha is an extremely talented and influential individual best known for his musical masterpieces created while still with his former band, Rage Against the Machine. The name of the band alone is, in some senses, a summation of Zack’s true character: a wildly rebellious man whose primary goal is to simultaneously push others to think for themselves and encourage social and political reform.
