January 27, 2006

Protect is the coming together of 26 artists to support said organization, giving all proceeds to the cause. Included are rare, unreleased, and/or new tracks.

The Soviettes – III – Review

January 27, 2006

It’s cute, funny, retro new wave that still has respect for itself and the audience. The vocalists each have a specialty, and jump in when their time comes.

Summon – Fallen – Review

January 27, 2006

Summon was hot shit in the day, but they’ve been lapped. If heads-down, no-frills, brutal death metal is your thing, Fallen may be right up your alley.

Static-X – Start a War – Review

January 27, 2006

Great for people who don’t know any better, or don’t ask for much from their music. Every lyric, every riff, ever beat here has been done before, and better.

Solea – Review

January 27, 2006

Solea features members and ex-members of Texas Is The Reason, Samiam, Sense Field, Knapsack, and The New Rising Sons. A sweaty, touching, emotional outpouring.

Sigur Ros – Takk – Review

January 27, 2006

Sigur Rós seem to’ve found a happy medium between drifting and delivering. Plenty of winding, swirling, and euphoric moments, but also a sense of purpose.

Civet – Massacre – Review

January 20, 2006

Aggressive, abrasive mediumcore punk loaded with tales of heartbreak and revenge, Massacre puts a new coat of blood on a familiar room.

Anthrax – Alive 2 (2005) – Review

January 20, 2006

Captures the electricity around the “classic Anthrax line-up” reunion shows. Interviews & backstage footage. A souvenir to hang onto: All killer, no filler.

Accessory – Titan – Review

January 20, 2006

A cleaner electro style fused with hard EBM, but lacks noise-driven floor-pounders. “One Night” might be one of the most sexually-charged EBM songs ever.

Eminence – Humanology – Review

January 20, 2006

Second full-length by this Brazil band boasting ex-members of Sepultura and Overdose. Various “Walk”-style riffs, vaguely tribal grooves, and dumbass lyrics.

Elliott – Photorecording – Review

January 20, 2006

The band’s farewell testament, a best-of set live in the studio, capturing the sometimes reinterpretation of old staples and their collective final days.

Mind Ripper II – Review

January 20, 2006

Mind Ripper II rips nothing but the classics from the vaults of Van Richter Records, with a few unreleased tracks and remixes added as bonuses.
