Dreamshade “What Silence Hides”

Ever since I was introduced to the Gothenburg metal scene about 12 or 13 years ago, I have been in love with melodic death metal.  Bands like At The Gates, Dark Tranquility, Children Of Bodom, and In Flames were staples of my musical diet during my high school years, so …

The Famine “The Architects Of Guilt”

The Famine - The Architects Of Guilt

After what was arguably one of the worst years for metal since it was inundated by an oversaturation of makeup and women’s underwear, I’ve found myself looking forward to a revival in 2011.  I’m not about to say that everything that came out in 2010 was total shit, but thanks …

Centaurus-A “Side Effects Expected”

Centaurus-A combines everything you love from metal:  fast drum beats, guitars shredding with surgical precision, and lyrics growled from a rabi wolf trapped in hell.  At first listen, the album comes off as solid, well defined and a safe venture into the world of metal.  To TRULY understand that this …

Best of 2009 – DonnieCake Style

Nile - Those Whom the Gods Detest

The best metal albums of 2009 were a pretty hard year to determine. Unlike 2008, the music was relatively good. Although the deathcore/metalcore/whatevercore genres strongly took a nose dive, 2009 saw a huge growth in solid releases in the more typical genres of metal (black, death, power, straight up heavy …

The Crimson Armada “Guardians”

I’ve thrown quite the barrage of punches in the direction of overly-Christian metal.  It’s not that I’m anti-Christian, it’s just that I kind of despise worship in music.  If I’m rocking out to some serious metal, prayer to any god(s) (aside from Viking ones, because that’s more thematic than religious) …

Obituary with John Tardy

Your lyrics are infused with heavy detail and raw emotion. What is it that normally gives you inspiration when writing lyrics and is there a concept behind the writing of Darkest Day? NO, not really.  I just like to get into each song and go with the way it makes …

Job For A Cowboy “Ruination”

Job For A Cowboy managed to become one of my favorite bands at the time of their debut release, Doom.  It was one of the more amazing albums of 2005, and it didn’t take more than one spin for me to fall in love with the modern deathcore sound.  When …

Suffocation “Blood Oath”

Suffocation - Blood Oath

There are very few bands in all of existence that possess anything close to the musical prowess of Suffocation.  From the moment that I first heard Effigy Of The Forgotten, I knew I had come across some of the true masters of death metal.  Never before had I heard such …
