Belphegor – Conjuring the Dead (2014)

Belphegor’s most recent masterpiece will prove that they are more than another extreme metal band. Conjuring The Dead is both everything we know about Belphegor, and a Belphegor we’ve never seen yet. This album will persuade and amaze the listener, completely submitting themselves to the band that is the apex of everything unorthodox. With one listen, Belphegor will make the listener become aware of both

Crucified Barbara – In The Red (2014)

In 2012, Crucified Barbara shocked the world with their album The Midnight Chase, which was a combination of straight heavy metal and aggressive lyrics. With that album the band was able to visit places like Brazil, and their first ever North American tour. In 2014, the Swedish ladies of Crucified Barbara return with In The Red, a new album, and a new heavy metal story. 

Cannabis Corpse – From Wisdom to Baked (2014)

So Cannabis Corpse released a new album. And guess what? It sounds like more Cannabis Corpse! Well they took their awesome song titles from bands such as Death and Gorguts, and I couldn’t be happier! Who is gonna complain about more stoner death metal? Especially since this stoner band doesn’t sound like crap, like most stoner bands do.

Christos Antoniou of Septicflesh talked to us about Titan

Epicness, heaviness, & magnificent musicianship are the only way I can describe a Septicflesh show. Almost a month ago, they released a new album titled, Titan, and how the name indicates that the record is huge in every aspect possible. To celebrate the release of the album, Septicflesh decided to pair up with Italian symphonic death metal pals Fleshgod Apocalypse, American tech death revelation Black

Fallujah – The Flesh Prevails (2014)

To state “Fallujah just released a new album” would be an understatement. This creation is titled “The Flesh Prevails.” An interesting title, because more than flesh prevails with this album; the listener feels their soul emerging with just one listen of this album. This out of body experience defines this album, and keeps the listener coming back. Very few bands can achieve this quality of

Tomasso Riccardi of Fleshgod Apocalypse talked to us about touring, pasta, and wine.

Like coming out of a Victorian horror nightmare, the symphonic death metal sound of Fleshgod Apocalypse has grabbed by the neck the attention of the international metal scene during the last 5 years. With only three studio albums out this band had already consolidated a trademark sound and reputation by themselves.

Eluveitie – Origins (2014)

Eluveitie is one of the most significative folk metal bands out there, since their inception back in 2002 they had defined the folk metal sound one album at the time. This year, they are releasing their new album Origins. This album picks up where Helvetios (2012) left off, as their sound got more mature and heavy, and their music became more pragmatic, which also takes the

Tarja Turunen talked to us about The Beauty & The Beat

Tarja Turunen returns this year with a new album, that breaks apart from her latest efforts as it explores her classical side. On this occasion, she partners with Mike Terrana (her session drummer) on a project called The Beauty And The Beat, that features drum interpretation of classical musical pieces, and new classic versions in the voice of Tarja. 

Amberian Dawn – Magic Forest (2014)

After releasing a re-recorded selection of the best songs from their previous musical work with the voice of their new singer, Capri Paivi, last year. This 2014 Amberian Dawn returns with a new album titled, Magic Forest.

Goatwhore – Constricting Rage of the Merciless (2014)

New Goatwhore is always a delightful thing. They are the death/black/extreme/hard rock/awesome metal band that obviously does their own thing and can actually pull it off. Their signature sound is best described as sacrificing the virgin cunt with a cattle prod; but you already know that. Anyway, they are releasing their newest album Constricting Rage of the Merciless on July 8. Prepare to dance on

Chris Boltendahl of Grave Digger talked about Return Of The Reaper

Teutonic heavy metal legends, Grave Digger returns with a new album titled Return Of The Reaper. The record presents itself as a no conceptual album, after many years of working with different concepts and narrating different stories. Grave Digger releases an album full of individual stories, heavy riffs, and with a fresh approach to heavy metal. 

Jeff Loomis of Conquering Dystopia talks about touring and writing music.

We still trying to wrap our heads about the amazing show that Conquering Dystopia delivered last Friday here in Mesa, AZ. I remembered talking with Jeff Loomis and Keith Merrow last January before their début show at the Schecter NAMM party in Anaheim, CA. At the time their material was unknown, so their live performance was regarded as a great display of technical metal without any released music

Allegaeon – Elements of the Infinite (2014)

In 2014 Allegaeon releases their new album Elements Of The Infinite. From what I remember about math, sequences can either be finite or infinite. Allegaeon has proved they truly are infinite with this new album. They improved on their signature melodic style without losing who they are. I will admit there are some songs not as strong as others, but overall this album pretty much

Septicflesh – Titan (2014)

Septicflesh’s new masterpiece is a ruthless yet mellifluous movement. With a name like Titan, Septicflesh fans immediately expected some of the best work Septicflesh could ever create. Since “titan” is a fancy word for “giant,” I feel Septicflesh met expectations. This sound is the biggest thing Septicflesh ever invented; they intensified the orchestrations and the savagery of their sound, making this a vivid rhapsody.

Tankard – R.I.B (2014)

Since the late 80′s German thrash metal had broken apart from the traditional format developed by the Bay Area movement (Metallica, Testament, Death Angel, Exodus, etc). The German response has been always darker and in some cases heavier, and albums like Agent Orange by Sodom, Extreme Aggression by Kreator and Chemical Invasion by Tankard are some of the best examples of that early German thrash metal

This out of body experience defines this album, and keeps the listener coming back. Very few bands can achieve this quality of disembodiment, which is why Fallujah will blow minds with this new album. Read more
