Ace Augustine “The Absolute”

Some albums sound really promising on their first listen, but on subsequent spins you start to notice your enthusiasm waning.  I have encountered many releases that fit into this category, and it’s always a bit disappointing when it happens.  On one hand, you really recognize the talent that a band …

Emmure “Speaker Of The Dead”

I’ll start this by coming clean – I’ve never paid any attention to Emmure in the past.  I never really knew much of what they were about, but I gave Felony a spin and was completely turned off, so I just left it at that and never returned.  Well, now …
