Ozzy Osbourne – Ozzmosis – Review

September 1, 1996

Ozzy releases an album in 1996 that rivals his Bark at the Moon, and bites the head off his own Ultimate Sin, No More Tears, and No Rest for the Wicked.

Nevermore – In Memory – Review

September 1, 1996

Three re-worked demo tracks, a cover of Bauhaus’ “Silent Hedges/Double Dare,” and new scorcher “Optimist or Pessimist,” the heaviest song they’ve yet done.

Necrophobic – Spawned by Evil – Review

September 1, 1996

With Slayer’s “Die by the Sword,” I did an about-face. Really nice job. Covers of Venom’s “Nightmare” and Bathory’s “Enter the Eternal Fire” follow.

My Head – Endless Bummer – Review

September 1, 1996

With Endless Bummer, My Head has managed to pay homage to the past and at the same time, infuse the sound with their own punchy, vibrant take.

Moonspell – Irreligious – Review

September 1, 1996

With their second album, Irreligious, Moonspell once again embellish Gothic, eclectic metal with class. The eleven-song opus of grandeur isn’t easily grasped.

Mark Stewart – Control Data – Review

September 1, 1996

The musical experience of Control Data is dulled by its author’s heart-in-the-right-place attempt to take the weight of society’s future on his shoulders.

Loveliescrushing – Xuvetyn – Review

September 1, 1996

These are some beautiful sound pieces that sound like a cross between some extended feedback loop via Experimental Audio Research with angelic voice drones.

Lint – Cold Scene – Review

September 1, 1996

Solid, dependable, Lint is an all-around companion, whether you want enraged scream-alongs or drunken acoustic musings.

Judge Nothing – Riveter – Review

September 1, 1996

It was produced by Stephen Egerton and Bill Stevenson. Judge Nothing does a fine job blending Descendents/ALL influences into something original and quality.
