Quite often, when a band has been around as long as Testament, there is always a risk of a lackluster effort. Let’s face it, some established artists release “okay” material and it is
wildly successful. If it was their debut, there probably wouldn’t be a follow-up album.
This is NOT the case
Hjel is a one-man atmospheric/melodic black metal project, coming from Germany. Max, the mastermind plays the guitar, bass and performs the vocals of this project.
Kalte Asche is the debut, and what a great start. The album is what atmospheric black metal fans want to hear. So let’s talk about it:

Lavish, Bombastic, Symphonic cinematic Metal...all adjectives could be used to effectively describe “The Holographic Principle”. This is the Dutch bands 7th release and admittedly the most ambitious to date. Everything from the tones/sound, the lavish production, the choirs, the deathly vocals are bigger, better and more ambitious than anything Epica
When I heard Meshuggah announced a new album, I was super excited.I was not let down by "The Violent Sleep Of Reason". The album opens with "Clockworks", a brutal yet simple track that captures the true essence of the band. A fairly long song at over seven minutes, the music
After the great experience of The Mountain album that was released on 2013, progressive metal/rock bad, Haken, coming from the United Kingdom has managed to release another masterpiece.

After the departure of Ezra Haynes, their ex-vocalist, the technical death metal band Allegaeon has declared Riley McShane as their new vocalist to replace Ezra.

Every now and then a band comes out of nowhere and sets the music industry on its collective edge and you're left wondering where the hell did that come from. In this case it came from Toronto, Canada in the form of Ascendia. Hey are a 5 pc Symphonic Progressive

So after a few sporadic reunions over the years Grim Reaper has finally returned and released a new album, under the moniker Steve Grimmett's Grim Reaper. No need for a history lesson as we all know the 3 80's albums 'See You In Hell' (83)...'Fear No Evil' (85)...And their best
The world of metal, especially extreme metal has always been nauseatingly male dominated. I say this as a big fan of bands classed under the category of thrash, death, and black metal. Even when women have shattered the glass ceiling of metal and have even mastered the death growl and
