Korpiklaani – Noita (2015)

Korpiklaani - Noita

I will say openly to begin with that this girl has a pretty big bias for folk music, so it will be rather hard for me not to enjoy the new Korpiklaani release. Either way, Nuclear Blast and Korpiklaani have come together again after a three-year wait to release the band’s ninth and one of their best albums …

Shining is one of the most recognizable bands in black metal. The reason for that is because of how distinct yet versatile this band remains. Their newest release IX Everyone, Everything, Everywhere Ends proves this. The symphonic atmosphere is the perfect background for the incongruity of composition, and this will help keep the listener intrigued. …

Gruesome – Savage Land (2015)

12 Jacket (3mm Spine) [GDOB-30H3-007}

Most people perceive Gruesome as a reinvented Death mashed up with an insane supergroup. This band is that, but so much more. Gruesome is its own monsters that bites its sharp fangs into brutal soloing and claws deep within complex composition.

Tribulation – The Children Of The Night (2015)

TR2

Scandinavia has been breeding a strange brew of Death Metal lately. Well, that’s not entirely true. The Scandinavian scene has always been experimental and strange, to say the least, while at the same time defining what it means to be old school in the last past few decades. Though I don’t think anyone anticipated that …

With this second album, Abiotic forces you to open up your mind and explore the terrifying and hidden depths of your nightmares. Casuistry combines serpentine-like grooves intertwined with a vitiating monstrosity, forcing you to surrender …
