Dissona – Dissona Review

So how glad am I that I spent some time with this album? Very fuggen glad! Seriously though, DISSONA is one of the best unsigned bands I have heard in a long time and this album is a truly fantastic example of a band that is ready for the big time…

Nation Despair – Exitium Mundi Review

The band play a brand of death metal that combines the brutality of traditional death metal, with the more melodic and symphonic touched of the modern variety of death metal to find a really good balanced middle ground that should appeal to fans from both sides of the fence…

Red Remedy – Oblivion Review

RED REMEDY have an interesting sound that takes its cues from a mixture of modern radio rock and some late nineties/early 2000’s alternative rock and metal a la bands like INCUBUS, SEVENDUST and fellow hometown heroes GRINSPOON. But where the sound really flourishes is with the addition of a heavy layer of melodic rock sensibility and a real no-jokes underlying groove.//

Sepultura – Kairos

KAIROS is a pretty awesome modern groove, death, thrash release and not only does mainstay Andreas Kisser sound like he has finally embraced being the lone guitarist, but Derrick Green also sounds the best he ever has this time around and really comes across as an all-encumbering monster…

Dynahead – Youniverse

DYNAHEAD are a progressive modern metal band that take a bit of a throw everything on the wall and see what sticks approach to their songwriting. While on one hand this ensures that the album is constantly serving up interesting musical passages and different bits and pieces, on the other hand it feels a little bit like there’s too much going on here and nothing solid enough to keep any level of cohesiveness throughout the disc…

Incarnate – Hands Of Guilt/ Eyes Of Greed

INCARNATE are not a band to be taken lightly. At the base of their sound you will find a typical deathcore style, but unlike most bands in the genre that tidy everything up with commercial production values and catchy songs for the younger generation, these guys take a leaf out of the old-school with a level of bash-your-face-in which is closer to traditional death metal than anything current and fresh…

Adakain – Silhouette Of Lies

To get an idea on what SILHOUETTES OF LIES has to offer, try and imagine if you will a bit of TAPROOT and BREAKING BENJAMIN, mixed with a slight touch of the more emo sounding vocals of a band like FROM AUTUMN TO ASHES then add some STAIND and even a light hint of Aussie indie rockers THIRSTY MERC to boot…
