This year marks the thirtieth anniversary of the English band My Dying Bride, defined as one of the doom metal masters, together with Paradise Lost and Anathema. The group has released thirteen studio albums in their long successful career. Even though everything has been put on hold due to very serious adversities, the British sextet has managed to return back to action with their fourteenth effort “The Ghost Of Orion” through label Nuclear Blast Records.
The Harrowing of Hearts proves that the polish band has taken a new gothic rock approach without changing their nature.
God Dethroned is a Death Metal band formed back in 1990 by vocalist and guitarist Henri Sattler and they are considered as an established part of the Dutch death metal history. They have released ten studio albums where there is a clear evolution of their music style from death to blackened death and more recently, melodic death metal. “Illuminati” is a special record that represents a fusion of various elements from all eras of the band, musically speaking. On the other hand, the lyrics of the nine new tracks show a tendency of returning to the past with anti-religion topics, following a trilogy dedicated to World War I.
“Become The Hunter” could definitely be defined as a career savior for Suicide Silence, a great piece of advanced technical Deathcore, which will re-establish the American band’s role in the music scene after some missteps they have taken in the past. Even though there are no originality or innovation elements, this is a solid, concrete new record, highly recommended for the devoted deathcore followers. It’s a selective album, maybe not suitable for listeners with a preference for more variety of sound, fewer restrictions, and a tendency to more melodic bands of the genre.
With this new album release, Entombed AD have offered a classic but also fun record to their audience. It seems the band has found their stride and even though “Bowes Of Earth” is not the most essential and original death record of all time, it brings the party.

It’s been a while since I have heard a Death Metal band that was relatively new that I felt like writing about
Ihsahn always has, and always will be, an innovative genius in the metal world. From his time in the legendary Black Metal act Emperor to a brilliant solo career, he has utilized every cliché in the book to avoid being cliché.
This album showcases Paradise Lost at another peak. It seems that the entire journey up till now had just one aim: writing, producing and releasing this masterpiece
