It's already been a year since the progressive metal band Dream Theater has released their second double-disc studio album, "The Astonishing", and I would go so far as to say it was one of 2016's best metal albums, not to mention one of the most ambitious albums in

PENETRATION - HELL WANTS MORE SOULS
Okay, full disclosure: I like this band!
1. They make great heavy and driving music that demands to be cranked.

Personally, when I hear the about a band

Elemento is a progressive metal/djent metal band from Italy. It’s a trio project formed in 2009. Many people don’t consider “djent” as a genre as it’s a sub-genre of progressive metal (which is a sub-genre itself), but it’s a way to identify that kind of music. So let’s
Zero Tolerance is a Death / Thrash metal band from Quillota, V Region, Chile, which begins its journey in 2010 and starts the composition of their debut album ''ABISMAL'' that debuted in 2015. The album is a death/thrash metal piece with groove influences.

After they released Construct 3 years ago, which wasn’t really what you wish to hear from Dark Tranquillity, the Swedish melodic death metal band has made a great comeback by releasing Atoma this year 2016. By great I meant everything you would love to hear from a melodic death metal
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:
If you don’t know them already Destrage is a metalcore band coming from Italy. This band, unlike many metalcore bands nowadays, doesn’t introduce mediocre or traditional metalcore albums.
You can see that from the effort they exert and the quality of music they introduce as a metalcore band.
After three successful albums
In Flames, as we used to know them, was a melodic death metal band coming from Gothenburg, Sweden. The band has changed its style gradually into alternative metal in the past few years.
Some of their old fans did not like this change in style, some others accepted it as nothing
Set Before Us is a MHF member band and hails from Tullinge a suburb of
Stockholm. The 5 piece band that started up in 2012 and play metalcore with some influences of

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. It’s always considered a major change when the vocalist is replaced, Riley hasn’t just played his part perfectly, but maybe better than Ezra in some
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
Hate them or love them, Korn is one of the best alternative metal/nu-metal bands out there. After going a little bit soft with their style, they come back with one of their heaviest albums ever. And it is not just heavy but well sorted too. Jonathan Davis, vocals are pretty
