Mourn – Review

July 1, 1995

Mountains of bassy guitar and lyrics about dreaming, souls, reality; the dreary mysticism of acid rock. Caroline Wilson adds a beautiful, trembling voice.

Septic Flesh – Esoptron – Review

July 1, 1995

The melodies of the guitars and keyboards add a particular atmosphere. Add the gruff and clean vocals of Spiros and you have the perfect melodrama.

Anal Cunt – Top 40 Hits – Review

June 1, 1995

Noise core to the extreme. They do “covers” like “Escape (the Piña Colada Song),” and the most killer version of “American Woman” ever committed to tape.

Accept – Death Row – Review

June 1, 1995

Death Row moves Accept into the ’90s under the power of Hoffman’s rock solid, aggressive guitar style and Udo’s piercing growl.

Samael – Rebellion – Review

June 1, 1995

Two previously-released tunes, a tip-toe-through-my-nightmare instrumental, a new song of warrior rage, and a great cover of Alice Cooper’s “I Love the Dead.”

Release – End of the Light – Review

June 1, 1995

They have VoiVodian guitars, throaty metal-guy vocals, monks chanting, noises fading in and out, chugging, driving beats, and everything but the kitchen sink

Raw Power – Fight – Review

June 1, 1995

Walls of guitars, scorching solos, gruff Fight! vocals and one thwack of a snare drum. Great metalcore anthems like I haven’t heard in years.

Mourning Sign – Alienor – Review

June 1, 1995

heir songs tend to flow from somber, funereal dirges, to hyperfast blasts of rage. Progressive death metal without long and boring songs. Sad yet powerful.
