It’s good to see the boys back in action again and I wish them the best of luck for when gigs and festivals return – No doubt we’ll all be in for a treat seeing them live!
The Bay Area legends have released a fresh piece of excellent thrash metal, an authentic pleasure for the followers of the genre. This should not be a surprise, because Testament has always given birth to amazing thrash metal material through their long successful career, but on the other hand they have crossed the boundaries of the old school sound
The four-piece makes their best effort to represent every era contained in their almost four-decade career. This live performance is structured like a theater event, including intervals between acts, which help the audience to recuperate and reflect upon what they have just experienced.
I’m sure there are crusty true cult metalheads out there that would refuse to give The Night Flight Orchestra their just desserts. They can stick with their piss poor produced, obscure music. I’d much rather have my spirits lifted by a band whose music is all about making their fans smile and have a good time while appreciating a style of music most Metal fans secretly love anyway. Wear it loud and proud dammit! I love, love, love this band and Aeromantic.
“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.
An amazing live album, a refresh back to the group’s old roots with some new blood, and it was done AMAZINGLY! Please go check out the album for yourself, and see when the group is coming near you! One thing I have found out is they really give 100,000% at their shows, and cannot wait to be back in front of their sonic cannon of sound!
Fans of Melodic Metal with a modern touch might enjoy listening to ‘No Halos in Hell’. However, some extra surprises and less of a streamlined approach would help to stick out from the mass of releases.
Mike Andersson shows great ability in adapting to the demands of the various music styles with his particular vocal range.
This year has reserved many surprising comebacks in discography and one of them is the return of the thrash metal band Exhorder, twenty-seven years after their latest studio release “The Law”.
