Lamb of God “Resolution”

lamb-of-god-resolution

So far from what I have read and heard, a lot of people aren’t too big on this album. I, personally, am actually a fan of how this band has progressed through out their career and still enjoy the music they make, whether they have “gone mainstream” or not. Anyways, …

Best and Worst of 2011 – DonnieCake Style

2011 to me marked an extremely solid year in metal of all tastes. We saw a ton of major releases, a bunch of well received indie releases and the continued growth of the now tumbling down metalcore/deathcore scene. With 2012 shaping up to be a possible blockbuster year after 2011, …

Metal’s Best and Worst of 2011 (Tim’s List)

So before I get down to the nitty gritty, I guess I should state that this “list” doesn’t really have an order like many other year end lists tend to do. Oh and it doesn’t just stop at albums either! I also list which shows were my favorite that I …

Chimaira “The Age of Hell”

Chimaira - The Age of Hell

Before I ooze over how great this new Chimaira album is, allow me to get you caught up in recent “roster moves” for the band. We had three departures in the past year for the band, saying goodbye to Jim (bass), Chris (keyboards/programming), and Andols (drums). Replacements came in the …

Cave In “White Silence”

Cave In have returned with White Silence, and yet again, their sound has shifted from expectations. Whether you like this or not will probably have been determined already for fans given the bands history, as this shifting around is not a new thing for Cave In. After Perfect Pitch Black …

GWAR “Lust in Space”

GWAR - Lust in Space

This is an album for the die hard fans. This is an album for those who possess a bizarre sense of metal humor that the rest of us just do not understand. This album is like a dirty minded 9th graders concept album storyboard. I am dumber for having listened …
