Sirhan Sirhan – Blood – Review

March 1, 2008

Produced by The Bronx’s Joby J. Ford, this weirdo/distorto rampage sounds great, not too slick, kinda like what you always hoped Rollins Band would sound like.

Moonspell – Night Eternal – Review

March 1, 2008

Less brooding and more roar this time around. Fernando tends to croon for an album or two, then shed the frilly shirt for battle armor and roar his balls off.

Himko – Review

March 1, 2008

Remember Atari Teenage Riot? Maybe heard the movie (soundtrack and kick-ass inspired-by mash-up) Threat? You’ve heard the best of “digital hardcore.”

H2O – Nothing to Prove – Review

March 1, 2008

If you’re a fan, here’s their latest. If you’re a fan of mid-’90s melodic punk and looking for some solid bands to check out, buy me a few drinks.

Evil Twin – Radio Salvation – Review

March 1, 2008

Perhaps they sweat’n’stomp live and buy whiskey shots for hot girls shakin’ in the front row, but this is unconvincing, and the songs simply don’t stick.

Divinity – Allegory – Review

March 1, 2008

A mix of thrash, death, and prog, they shred, the vocals roar then soar warblingly, harmonize with the best of them, then they trip you up like Meshuggah.

City Sleeps – Not An Angel – Review

March 1, 2008

This is the kind of eyeliner rock I have trouble understanding. Haven’t the Goo Goo Dolls already been laughed at for over a decade for pussy rock like this?

Zero Hour – Dark Deceiver – Review

March 1, 2008

Any band who can play like Meshuggah and sing like Nevermore’s Warrel Dane or Geoff Tate (and sometimes King Diamond), well, there’s something to check out.
