Bhelliom “The Colossal Tragedy”

Deciding how I even stand with The Colossal Tragedy, the latest album from Singapore death metal rockers Bhelliom, has been a staggering task indeed.  This is a band that brings some serious technical riffage to the table, and on one hand, they do it exceptionally well.  On the other hand, …

Syrens with Bryce

The name of the band Syrens, is interesting to say the least and sounds as if there is a story behind it. Where did the name come from and what is the story? The name is meant as a humbling name. We had another name previous to Syrens, and we …

Hope Lane Is A Dead End “Illuminate”

Reviewing Hope Lane Is A Dead End was definitely an experience I was not banking on.  When I started listening to their new EP, Illuminate, and heard the standard no-frills metalcore sound everyone’s come to expect from the underground, my expectations for the album dropped to zero.  However, the more …

Chelsea Grin “Chelsea Grin”

Chelsea Grin is a band that I desperately want to like.  Their name comes from a type of facial scar that was made famous by Heath Ledger’s Joker in last year’s “The Dark Knight” (it’s more commonly known as a Glasgow Smile, which I honestly think would have been a …

400colpi “Homo Homini Lupus”

When some people hear the term “metalcore” used to describe a new band, their eyes roll back into their heads and their search for a new insult will culminate into a sigh.  In all honesty, I can’t blame them, for it is a genre that is already overcrowded and practically …

Best of 2008 – DonnieCake Style

Medeia - Cult

Well I must agree with Robby on this one, year 2008 was a pretty un-stellar year in the world of metal/hardcore/punk. With few notable releases it truly made the good stand out and the bad completely suck. My top ten is comprised of a few different genres and all of …

From A Second Story Window “Conversations”

From a Second Story Window - Conversations

Ahh yes, a new album from the beloved ‘From A Second Story Window’. Anyone who didn’t appreciate or like “Delenda” is pretty much a fool. Anyways, rumors speculated around at this years metalfest (New England) that when they didn’t show they broke up (scary stuff). Although it looks good to …

10. New Found Glory “Kiss Me”Well I don’t really know the point of covering this song or the point of making it a music video. I do actually like New Found Glory but this video is tough to watch. Its like watching a gay pillow fight, but with 1 guy …

Best of 2007 – DonnieCake Style

Between the Buried and Me

2007 for me was a year of new turning points in music all together. You saw the fad of metalcore steady out and more bands rising out of that thankfully, with new rhythms and a better direction. The metal world grew for the better this year, unlike in 2006 I …
