Valkyrie – Shadows – Review

July 10, 2015

The power of the riff compels Valkyrie, a Virginia heavy rock group led by guitarists/vocalists Pete (also of Baroness) and Jake Adams.

Raven – ExtermiNation – Review

May 15, 2015

Every now and then, when your brain has been fried by so many far-out variants, it’s great to have some old-school Heavy Metal kick you in the head.

Local H – Hey Killer – Review

April 10, 2015

Hey, Killer is the most consistent Local H record since 2002’s Here Comes the Zoo and the band’s best since at least 2004’s Whatever Happened to P.J. Soles?

Seattle Noise Vol. 1 – Review

Good to Die has been putting out dirty, heavy and straight-up “authentic” sounding rock and metal for a few years, and this 14-song comp is a great sampler.

April 28, 2014

There are now more Ihsahn solo records than Emperor records. It’s safe to say the former Emperor frontman is committed to this life of relentless experimentation.

April 28, 2014

With last year’s release, there are now more Ihsahn solo records than there were Emperor records, so I think it’s safe to say the former Emperor frontman is committed to this new life of relentless experimentation.
