Stabbed – Long Way Down

October 30, 2017 Scott Andrews 0

8.5/10 Stabbed cite the influence of the progressive rock and groove metal movement (such as Mastodon, Opeth, Gojira and Meshuggah) as an inspiration. I can hear this immediately, but not in a clichéd derivation, more […]

American Caskets – Self-Titled EP

October 9, 2017 Keenan Kerr 0

8/10 Long Island New Yorkers American Caskets released their self-titled EP on May 29th, 2017. It offers a melodic feel to the typical heavy metal, screamo sound, often putting a hardcore spin on progressive metal. Without […]

September 11, 2017 Syd Ghan 0

6.5/10 The nu-metal is strong on Suicide Silence’s latest self-titled release. That means the purists aren’t going to be happy. The rampant use of melody and crystal-clear production are going to drive them insane. If […]

Smirking Revenge – Disastearth

July 28, 2017 Syd Ghan 0

8.5/10 Montreal natives Smirking Revenge’s first full-length record and second release overall, Disastearth, is everything you could want in a death metal record. Oddly enough, there are also a lot of things you might find […]

Grizzly – Reaper

July 21, 2017 Mathieu Perrier 0

4/10 With the runtime of an EP but the track listing of a full-length album, Grizzly’s Reaper is fast, brutal, and technical. While those are all good qualities that any metal band should strive for, […]
