Unearth – Endless – Review

July 2, 2003

Massachusetts act Unearth serve up a piping-hot hybrid of metal/hardcore, a lethal concoction not for the faint of heart.

Therion – Live in Midgard – Review

July 2, 2003

A double live CD to celebrate their 15-year anniversary, evolving from traditional death metal to an original mix of power metal and operatic screeching.

Contaminated 5.0 – Review

July 2, 2003

Death, technical, sludge-y, grinding, stoner, and occasionally “weird.” The best are death metal gods. Some decent stuff with horrible crap in between.

Open Hand – The Dream – Review

July 2, 2003

Open Hand are one of Trustkill’s new signings, and while I don’t mind their blend of post-melodic hardcore, I don’t really see the deal with this band.

Crash and Burn – Sick Again – Review

July 2, 2003

Punk rock’n’power boogie-rooted rock and fucking roll, keeping the tempos in the mid-quick range, the guitars set on “stun,” and the drums set on “stomp.”

Immolation – Unholy Cult – Review

July 2, 2003

Dies Irae – The Sin War – Review

July 2, 2003

This is Vader members Mauser and Doc’s side band. Ironic, then, that this sophomore release is actually better than the last Vader full-length, Revelations.
