Adema – Review

February 22, 2002

Breathy boy band rage and eerie, cold moments of New Wave, with the roar and groove of nü metal. Mark Chavez is the younger brother of Jonathan Davis of Korn.

Stereomud – Perfect Self – Review

February 22, 2002

Members of the band migrated from Stuck Mojo and Life of Agony, so there’s little surprise the prevailing musical elements here are of an advanced stage.

Static-X – Machine – Review

February 22, 2002

Static-X is a younger, harder, faster version of dumbed-down Ministry and Fear Factory with fashion sense that’ll hound them for the rest of their lives.

Zao – (Self-Titled) – Review

February 22, 2002

Sounding more complex and darker than ever, (Self-Titled) is this band’s OK Computer… And not just because of the similarities in artwork, either.

Wayne – Metal Church – Review

February 22, 2002

Nuclear Blast seems convinced we want new records with the original Metal Church singer, David Wayne, as well as live recordings and now this side-project.

Swarm – Devour – Review

February 15, 2002

Funny that with such great pedigree (three ex-members of Death Angel), this sucks so badly. Swarm has done opening jags for Jerry Cantrell, and members of Metallica, Stone Temple Pilots, and Primus have jammed with the band. But this five-song EP, as I said, sucks.

Judas Priest – Stained Class – Review

February 15, 2002

Sin After Sin, Stained Class, Hell Bent for Leather, and Unleashed In the East: The silver gleamed, the riffs rifled, and Halford was at his high-flying’ best.

Kittie – Paperdoll EP – Review

April 1, 2001

The radio remix of “Paperdoll” and live versions of Spit’s “Spit,” “Brackish,” “Suck,” “Do You Think I’m a Whore?,” “Raven,” and the video of “Charlotte.”

Austin Powers – International Man of Mystery – Review

July 1, 1997

By rights, it should have been disastrous: it’s got a way-overused fish-out-of-water plot, rampant juvenile innuendo, urination and defecation jokes, a leading man with an affinity for look-at-me-aren’t-I-cute mannerisms when the gags aren’t there, and a cameo appearance by Tom Arnold.
