  1.  Lamb Of God are back!

    Posted: 

    Lamb of God return with their crushingly heavy new album Resolution. It's everything you'd expect from a Lamb of God album. It's got the sheer aggression of Randy's vocals, the insane drum grooves Chris Adler, the groove laden riffs by the guitar duo Mark and Willie and the fat driving bass lines of John Campbell. Each have pushed themselves to their limits delivering so of the heaviest tunes to come in a while. The album explores every aspect of their playing with a few tracks showing their roots in Burn the Priest. But they've also pushed the boat out and experimented with orchestration with the result being the epic album closer 'King Me'. Defiantly one for Lamb of God fans and anyone who likes some straight up Heavy Metal!

  2.  Standing the test of time

    Posted: 

    10 years on from the release of IOWA its still as brutally heavy and punishing. With the inclusion of the audio from the legendary Disaterpieces and the inclusion of the intimate DVD 'Goat' this is worth every penny. Even if you have the album already the Disaterpieces CD and the Goat DVD are a good reason to buy this!

  3.  Machine Head return on top form!

    Posted: 

    Four years and countless tours after the release of the 2007 behemoth that was 'The Blackening', Machine Head return to set the bar for modern metal, and they've set it incredibly high. Unto the Locust is once again a monster of an album containing all the signature Machine Head elements while introduce some new ones and exploring a number of new techniques. You can expect to hear groove driven riffs, massive hooks, crowd sing-a-long anthems and punishing riffs, solos and drum grooves.

    The opening song 'I Am Hell' is an ambitious 9 minute, three part song sets the tone for the whole album. Every song on this album is very distinguishable, each with its own character and feel. The intro riff of the second track, 'Be Still and Known' is reminiscent of the melodic hook in 'Now I Lay Thee Down' and is a comforting experience. In comparison the intro section of 'Darkness Within' proves Machine Head's ability to move outside their comfort zone and explore other genres and succesfully incorporate them into their own style.

    The album not only exceeds in the musicality side but also lyrically. The lyrical themes on the album are clear and easy to connect to with simple but hugely catchy choruses. Expect to hear the chorus from Locust being sung loud and proud on Machine Heads up and coming tour!

  4.  Jesse And Adam have created an amazing album!

    Posted: 

    Hymn Of A Broken Man is a highly respectable album from Jesse Leach and Adam Dutkiewicz. It has a familiar sound yet so different its a breath of fresh air. The tracks are heavy and hard hitting with well placed melodies. With a pair of headphones on its hard to not get lost in the music.

    A must for fans of Jesse, Adam or Killswitch Engage!
