Ephel Dualth – RePhormula – Review

June 14, 2002

This Italian duo overuse Isahn and company’s symphonic style and the thin production and mediocre drum machine don’t help. A re-release of Ephel Duath’s debut.

Knut – Review

May 31, 2002

A four-song fix. Knut experiences the same pain, rage, and violent creative urge that their brothers-in-post-hardcore-arms like Burnt By The Sun and Botch do.

Converge – Jane Doe – Review

March 15, 2002

One of the most intense albums of the genre, finding a link between grindcore, emo, and hardcore with scary time-signatures and crazed chord progressions.

Godflesh – Hymns – Review

March 1, 2002

On Hymns, even without the high-tech frills, Godflesh prove that they’re a real “rock” band capable of awesome harshness and an amazing melodic beauty.

Isis – SGNL>05 – Review

February 22, 2002

This five-song creation is high on the artistic meter with both intense heaviness and esoteric melodies that lull you into a state of transcendental bliss.
