Helloween – Metal Jukebox – Review

April 1, 2000

Seeing as these Germans were pioneers in the melodic speed metal scene of the mid-’80s, it’s kinda cool to see them dig back even deeper to their roots.

Harkonen – Review

April 1, 2000

With idols like Kiss It Goodbye, Trial, and Botch, Harkonen aims to be the next noisecore kings of the Northwest.

Hangnail – Review

April 1, 2000

There’s so much hard-rockin’ anthem/balladry going on behind the punkpop paces, it almost sounds like Dokken, though Stryper’s probably more accurate, huh?

Hades – The Downside – Review

April 1, 2000

A Pandora’s Box of retro mindgames, but in being that, it chooses doom, dirt, organics, and an interesting and discerning sampling of power and prog.

Dismember – Hate Campaign – Review

April 1, 2000

Another slab of hatred and agony with which these Swedish forefathers can prove their worth, and all you kiddies out there should definitely pick it up.

Digger – Monte Carlo – Review

April 1, 2000

Super Chikan – What You See – Review

April 1, 2000

Not the usual head-cuttin’ stompin’ blues curiosity the label specializes in. James “Super Chikan” Johnson’s soulful elaborations on old themes will win fans.

Demons and Wizards – Review

April 1, 2000

The collaboration between Iced Earth’s Jon Schaffer and Blind Guardian’s Hansi Kursch. Quality, serious-minded power metal riffs and creatively fresh harmonies.

Deep Reduction – Review

April 1, 2000

Deep Reduction is a generally disappointing foray thru various rock’n’blues pieces that go nowhere everyone’s been before.
