My Dying Bride – Trinity – Review

October 1, 1995

A collection of greatest hits off the first few albums, EPs and 7″s released just before their third full-length. Moody, heavy, and sweetly dismal.

Temperance – Review

October 1, 1995

When I put Temperance on my Walkman, when I’m riding my BMX on my paper route, it makes me feel totally free, man

Grinch – Eden – Review

October 1, 1995

When the vocals step out of the throaty any-note-will-do approach, the melodies are haunting and gorgeously ugly.

Six Feet Under – Haunted – Review

October 1, 1995

With death metal’s largest bands contributing to this supergroup, it’s no surprise it’s amazing. It’s unique from any of the bands the members are famous for.

Coalesce – 002 – Review

October 1, 1995

This is one of the most aggressive and ferocious bands I’ve heard in a while. I can see why a death label would be interested in them.

Channel Zero – Unsafe – Review

October 1, 1995

Hint of Pro-Pain, Korn, and countless others. When the voice goes over the edge and howls, “Sucking me dry for my energy,” you know you’ve got a hit.

Brujeria – Raza Odiada – Review

October 1, 1995

Massive choruses of rebellion, revelry and rioting, gunfire, frantic drumming, mile-thick guitars, and full lyric sheets that aren’t in English.

September 1, 1995

Skulls adorning horridly-mixed, uninspiring grrr thrash tapes is far from my idea of a must-get.

Crowbar – Time Heals Nothing – Review

September 1, 1995

Their songwriting has improved. They are not just playing that slow slug stuff, but using more energy and groove, making this album a helluva lot more brutal.

Snapcase – Steps – Review

September 1, 1995

Hardcore with metal crunch is a popular trend recently. A super-thick bass line leads raging, and often distorted, vocals and rich guitar harmonies.
