Epica

Epica

Within the realm best known as Symphonic Metal few groups have had the lasting impacts of Dutch stalwarts Epica. Fueled in part by multi-octave temptress Simone Simons, the group burst onto the scene in 2003 with their ingenious full-length debut The Phantom Agony. Hitting their proverbial stride with the The Divine Conspiracy (2007), the group found themselves at the apex of a Symphonic Metal 'rebirth'. Read More

Hatriot

When the mighty Exodus instantly itself without a vocalist prior to the final leg of the often thunderous Tempo Of The Damned tour (2004), many wondered what would become of 'raspy' frontman Steve 'Zetro' Souza. Fortunately for all parties involved, the wait would be brief as he would soon find himself at the helm of Dawn Of The New Centurion, the latest highly-anticipated release from 'familial' upstarts Hatriot.Read More

Sevendust

Let's face it; the vast majority of music journalists are often eager to overuse terms like breathtaking and revolutionary when describing artists and groups deserving recognition. As a result, you have been subjected to my feelings concerning Anthrax, Dream Theater and Michael Angelo Batio. Thus, you can imagine our excitement regarding Time Travelers & Bonfires from long-running icons Sevendust.Read More

As a life-long practitioner of the Thrash Metal genre, I'll be the first to admit my oft-intense admiration of iconic veterans Megadeth. Although I'm not certain what initially piqued my interest, once the Grammy-nominated jewel Countdown To Extinction was in heavy rotation, my dedication to the group was entirely cemented. Now, nearly a quarter of a century later, I again find myself intrigued by My Life With Deth from notoriously-prolific bassist David EllefsonRead More

However, despite having already spent my adolescence deeply immersed within my parent's record collection, I was ultimately able to set my misgivings aside and fully embrace the quartet. Not surprisingly, my love affair with the group continues with the release of the debut solo effort The Way Life Goes from front man Tom KeiferRead More

Hydrogyn

When someone once again posed the question regarding the 'importance' of female-fronted Heavy Metals acts, my thoughts initially turned to Lacuna Coil and Nightwish. For as long as I can remember, I have been an unabashed supporter of all things female and Rock ‘n’ Roll. Thus, it came as absolutely no surprise when I found myself utterly enthralled with frontwoman Julie Westlake from Ashland, Kentucky-based Hard Rock exports Hydrogyn.Hear More

The Urban Dictionary best defines a nutswinger as 'someone who follows ever move they make’. Although such a description may lack originality, it does encompass my often intense feelings regrading notoriously muscule-bound axeman Maxxxwell Carlisle. In fact, for as long as I can remember, I’ve been a disturbingly-dedicated fan of the his distinctive sound in groups such as Deathriders and Hellion as well as various collaborations.Read More
