“King” Captures an overwhelming wall of sound composed by symphonic elements and crucial metal parts to contrast

Italians Fleshgod Apocalypse they have released their fourth full length, "King" and as you can imagine they still in the same vein, composing some of the most devastating symphonic technical death metal over the world, in less than a decade, this band has earned a place in the acceptance of a countless followers, why? well the answer falls directly in their sumptuous discography, their debut album "Oracles" released in 2009, set the ground for Fleshgod Apocalypse for their innovative blend of Neo-classical style and relentless death metal, later on in 2011 came back again with "Agony" having a better production than their previous album and is here where they are fearless to integrate more orchestral elements, in 2013 "Labyrinth" sees the daylight with a more cohesive songwriting, dynamic and brutal, with all these extenuating it is easy to distinguish Fleshgod Apocalypse among others.

Their newest record as well as its predecessors possesses their distinctive trademark, "King" is another conceptual album, and tells the story of a king who has many problems in dealing with his court, they try to gain control on him and take power, but this king remains positive while he is trying to keep the sovereign together, he tries to do things with integrity and tries to keep his values, this story sounds very familiar if we transfer to our modern life.

"Marche Royale" masterfully opens the album with a powerful orchestration, is a little preamble for what's heading to you, followed by "In Aeternum" captures an overwhelming wall of sound composed by symphonic elements and crucial metal parts to contrast, while the clean vocals are piercing yours ears and without mercy, gears up to the crushing "Healing Through War" the guitar riff here are more abundant and heavy, and the wind ensemble subtly slay the air, "The Fool" is one of the most extreme technical cuts incorporating piano structures and choirs, with complex and aggressive drumming, next is "Cold as Perfection" is daring, slower pace with dark ambience and clean female vocals resounds in the incomprehensive chaos, to the end an outstanding guitar solo which eventually get lost in the spiral of chaos followed by "Mitra". The beauty of the inconceivable comes with "Paramour (Die Leidenschaft bringt Leiden)" a classical piano composition with mesmerizing female vocals, prepares for "And the Vulture Beholds" and "Gravity" delivers the most fastest riffage and delves once again in an orderly chaos with exceptional string arrangements, "A Million Deaths" is bombastic, opulent and heavier riff falls into a ungovernable frenzy, the band emphasize in more piano melodies rather than complex brutality, "Syphilis" approaches us to the end with a nightmarish vibe, melodramatic and somber crushing riff brings the subtle agony when least expected, the last track is "King" is a piano instrumental track memorable as well passionate to end tragically.

The Italian pioneers of extreme Symphonic Technical Death metal, recorded their album in 16th Cellar Studios and Kick Recording Studio in Rome Italy, the Mixing and mastering at Fascination Street Studio in Örebro, Sweden by Jens Borgen, at the end was a very addictive and theatrical dose of extreme metal, robust in symphonic elements well balanced with outrageous metal parts, vocally impressive, "King" is an album that worth the time to listen and enjoy.

An imminent return to its roots, aiming to recapture some of their old fans and respect of the newest generation

Voivod are one of those few bands who remain and enjoy their creative longevity as anyone, since the beginning of their career they has been pulling album after album of great level, starting with the explosion of the Thrash metal in the eighties they were able to add progressive elements ending with such masterpieces as "Killing Technology" in 1987 or later "Dimension Hatröss" in 1988 and subsequently lead them into a more progressive spectrum to release "Nothingface" during 1989, or the stunning "The Outer Limits" released in 1993, passing through the ephemeral punk progressive of "Infini" in 2009 and lately their successful comeback to their progressive roots embodied in "Target Earth" three years ago, which has revived the flame of their most diehard fans.

Canadians Voivod have been fairly constant with respect to line-up changes, being the most significant the lost of their former guitarist Piggy who passed away in 2005 and the bassist Blacky, the current line-up is Away behind the drums, Snake performing vocals, Chewy in the crushing guitar and Rocky in the rumbling bass, with this formation Voivod record their latest work an EP entitled "Post Society" which contains five tracks, so let's take a look and find out what they have to offer for our delight.

"Post Society" is the first track and gives it the title to this EP, the bass roars loud with some post punk effect and rapidly is joined by striking guitar riff sharp and catchy, Snake vocals is still in good shape, while the drums lead the pace, "Forever Mountain" this track was included in a split with Napalm Death and tends to be in a slower pace, but overwhelming and sullen, the next track is "Fall" with a slightly peaceful guitar work, it turns into a eccentric and dissonant piece with a delirious guitar solo make this one the favorite of the EP, "We Are Connected" is another track previously released in a split with At The Gates one year ago, aiming to recapture some of their old fans and respect of the newest generation, here they shown us a more powerful work as unit, succeeding in every aspect from the fastest riff to the intense and slower pace, the closing song is the cover track "Silver Machine" from the English rock band Hawkwind which is really fun, how they imprint they own style and at the end come to be seriously catchy.

Voivod has been always very distinctive from the pack, at some point I could consider them as the lonely wolf of the prairie, in such case there is no boundaries for them and their creativity and their thirty-five years in the field, it proves how unique they are pick any decade and you will find out, what I'm talking about, definitely Voivod has earned a special place within the metal scene.

Stay True… Stay Metal… Stay Brutal...

Akróasis retains all the rhetorical and distinctive elements which makes their sound unmatched

Obscura the German progressive technical death metal band has come with their newest production titled "Akróasis" it took almost five years to put out a record to Obscura's mastermind guitarist and vocalist Steffen Kummerer, but it wasn't easy after a full reformation of the band, until he meets with fretless bassist Linus Klausenitzer, drummer Sebastian Lanser and guitarist Tom Geldschläger, who left the band after recording the album allowing the lead guitarist Rafael Trujillo took over duties, with this facts in mind, it’s hard to answer the question if they were able to top off their previous album "Omnivium" released in 2011, as soon as you listen to their new record, you will figure it out.

"Akróasis" retains all the rhetorical and distinctive elements which make their sound unmatched, versatility remains a key part, very well structures arpeggios supported by a classic jazzy fretless bass, while the drums keeps up its endeavor tracing paths of intricate precision and the balance of the album fumbles between the chaotic and melodious moments of "Cosmogenesis" and the rabid progressive speed of "Omnivium", without a doubt it's complex and unpredictable.

The album opens with "Sermon Of The Seven Suns" it release all the intensity towards the infinite power in a rampant ecstasy, the jazzy elements sprout out through the varied soundscape, the vocals fall in a Schuldiner-esque, while the drums got beaten with determination and precision, "The Monist" reveals some nuanced of the early Florida tech death (Atheist, Nocturnus), the vocals take care of the brutal side in the cut, "Akróasis" the album self-titled track set a state of mind unique with a broad and compulsive sound spectrum, mesmerizing how are they able to retain you with subtle disharmonies, "Ten Sepiroth" bursts with a delicate acoustic guitar which works perfectly before unleash a hell of fast riffing, freezing blast beats shake the ground and open the way to the magnificent "Ode to the Sun" a beautiful mid pace track full of malevolence, heavy and dense riffage, the orchestral percussion are impressive and almost at the end of the cut, a choral arrangements are integrated exceptionally, "Fractal Dimension" skillful guitar work followed by a ceaseless drum builds passages and walls of cosmic sounds converging in a masterful guitar solo that vanishes in eternity, "Perpetual Infinity" remain overwhelming with very creative riff delighting the listener, the bass works towards the song complementing but forgetting the jazzy interludes for a moment, "Weltseele" this track is a subtle display of talent that scales through various hues and mergers of elements, creating a superb songwriting where can appreciate genuine riff death metal, mixed with acoustic guitars, violins, cellos, and double bass as well as clean vocals in narrative form and of course snarling vocals, the drum section play an important role giving the support to lay the pace and moods to this utterly masterpiece within their entire repertoire, the last track is the instrumental "The Origin of Primal Expression" which works pretty good as an end, giving the sense of tranquility and peace.

It is true they took a long time to perform their fourth album "Akróasis", but it is also true that you will not be disappointed, however if you are expecting somehow they follow the steps of "Omnivium" I fear you might question this album because lies more on elements we hear in "Cosmogenesis" but still I cannot clearly defined as a progeny of it, due to the expansive work in their songwriting and arrangements as ever before, it is highly recommended for enthusiasts who likes to venture in the intricate of the subgenre progressive and technical.

Stay True… Stay Metal… Stay Brutal...

Jomsviking can be defined as brutal and melodic with a beautiful concept

Amon Amarth began their journey twenty four years ago, however I did found them four years later, when visiting my local store they were playing their first EP "Sorrow Throughout the Nine Worlds" and I was shocked, never before I was heard something like that, since that moment I was fascinated for these vikings, record after record, they haven't let me down at all, always with their unique formula has been able to craft and deliver a state of ecstasies with their melodic and brutal sound, but "Jomsviking" is not only that! For very first time in their career Amon Amarth bring to us, a very strong and unforgettable conceptual album, here Amon Amarth tells us a love story about a young man who finds his beloved woman married to another, arousing his anger and commit murder, he is being forced to flee in the midwinter, but swore to return to win her back and take revenge and that is just the beginning of a beautiful story where every track has its own personality and complement each other, taking you through disgrace, adventures, tragedies to conclude with a sad end, lyrically this the opus master of Amon Amarth.

Certainly something was bugging us, it was the curiosity to know who will replace their long time drummer Fredrik Andersson and finally got unveiled within three days before the official release of "Jomsviking" there is not better choice than Jocke Wallgren better known for his work at (Valkyrja, October Tide) at least he is the right man, to cover their upcoming US tour which kick off next April seventh in San Diego, California.

"Jomsviking" open with "First Kill" this track set everything in this opus master with sharp riff, Johan Hegg add his powerful and raw growls, the blasting and accurate drums by Tobias Gustafsson (Vomitory) are impressive, yes! you read right he was the drummer session, who helped Amon Amarth to record this album, "Wanderer" brings the grooving guitars of Olavi Mikkonen and Johan Söderberg with exceptional rhythms and solos, "On a Sea of Blood" is a full attack, relentless and furious the track have enough power to light up the moshpit, "One Against All" is a clear statement of hate and men resolution, undoubtedly the galloping riff owns this cut, while "Rise Your Horns" gives a breathe with its mid pace riffing and infectious vocals, only to let "The Way of Vikings" arrives with an epic feeling the story here tells us the tragedy of two men, who are best friends determined to fight, "At Dawn's First Light" Hegg dialog opens threatening and delves in easily recognizable riffage alike Maiden's style, even the bass line very alike to Harris, "One Thousand Burning Arrows" structured with heavy and dense riffage over a rhythmic section of bass and drums that collide and contrast with beautiful guitars elevated with cutthroat vocals, infuse enough energy to take the last breath before heading to the end, "Vengeance Is My Name" is faster than the previous track which is more oriented to their roots, "A Dream That Cannot Be" subtly welcomes the beginning of the epilogue featuring Doro Pesch, as guest the guitar work is intense and allows the dueling vocals of Hegg and Pesch to elaborate an unthinkable end for the two lovers of the story, "Back on Northern Shores" the last chapter with a mid pace riff and a melody in the background, Hegg snarls to tell the epic finale  with the proper dose of aggression and imagination, drenched in sadness and a fateful but grandiose end.

Amon Amarth's tenth studio album is the living proof that a steady line-up with a common core are capable to reach anywhere, without divagate in nowhere but always evolving their sound to the next level, "Jomsviking" can be defined as brutal and melodic with a beautiful concept, the band was able to create a fantastic story that inspire the listener to devour the album from the beginning to the end, this album becomes to be probably one of the best metal albums of the year and an iconic conceptual album for the years to come.

Stay True… Stay Metal… Stay Brutal...

A very divisive album with old elements, venturing into the mainstream

Prong has been delivering tunes for over three decades, Tommy Victor started with the band around 1986 playing some kind of Crossover and Thrash metal at that time, their debut album "Force Fed" released back in 1988 set them in the underground scene, but it was not until 1991 with their third album "Prove You Wrong" which appeals more to the groove sound of bands like Pantera or Machine Head, in 1994 they were able to reach their pinnacle of their career with the album "Cleansing".

However by 1996 they came out with their album "Rude Awakening" which doesn't capture enough attention, some people blamed them for adding Nu metal elements, later in 1997, they split and took different ways, Tommy Victor joined Danzig and by 2002 the band was reformed and focus in the songwriting for their sixth full length which was released in 2003, Prong was ready with a comeback album entitled "Scorpio Rising" but again, it wasn't what everyone were expected, but persistence leads to succeed, in 2007 their album "Power of the Damager" put them back in the right track, with a relentless thrash metal and giving high hopes to their diminished fanbase, by 2012 "Carved Into Stone" takes an approach to groove metal and it blends with some thrashier riffage, at some point sounds to me like Anthrax and their "Persistence of Time" album, during 2014 they released their tenth album "Ruining Lives"  which resembles the era of "Beg to Differ" and "Prove You Wrong", seems to be very tempting for the old followers, with tracks like "The Barriers", "Remove, Separate Self" or even "The Book Of Change" it's almost impossible to let it go.

One of the Prong constant problems has been to pull up a steady line-up, "X - No Absolutes" count with Tommy Victor in guitars and vocals, bassist Jason Christopher (ex-Sebastian Bach) and drummer Arturo "Art" Cruz (Winds of Plague), So! let's get into business and review Prongs new album "X - No Absolutes" which turns to be a very divisive album in my opinion "Ultimate Authority" and "Sense of Ease" both built with fast grooving riffage and thrash industrial elements which became as the consistent part in their latest releases, including catchy tracks, "Without Words" and "Cut And Dry" with abundant melodies and more mainstream as we notice in their previous record, "No Absolutes" and "Do Nothing" for a single minute, I got bother, because I thought that somehow my player began playing Linkin Park, but no! Even so I had to check the track list to believe what I was listening and I got speechless, "Belief System" cause divergence because its grounding in the middle of nothing far from their roots and far to be a deathcore tune, "Ice Runs Through My Veins" structured with an electro-pop vibe and mainstream chords, losing their guitar signature riff, the closing track must have been "Worth Pursuing" due to the heavy riffage, solid bass notes and the drums sound very decent and steady.

After listening several times "X - No Absolutes", I still striving to go with them, unfortunately they have lots of dynamics, no doubt at their best, but directionless! In my opinion, few tracks save the brightness of the yesteryear, while others venture into a more mainstream culture, I think is up to you, listen and make your own judgment.

Stay True… Stay Metal… Stay Brutal...

Track List:

1. Ultimate Authority
2. Sense Of Ease
3. Without Words
4. Cut And Dry
5. No Absolutes
6. Do Nothing

This is a strong and consistent album, catchy and disturbing within the genre

Primal Fear the Teutonic band with less than twenty years in their history, return this year with their eleventh full length, entitled "Rulebreaker", I can define this album in few simple words this is an intense dose of power metal, forget everything else they are not reinventing the genre, instead they are keep on rolling with metal anthems, with their typically consistency at songwriting, drenched in catchy and powerful riff alike Judas Priest, so you can have a clear idea of what I am talking about.

The facts that secure this album as one of the most representatives within the genre for 2016 are the addition of Italian drummer Francesco Jovino (U.D.O.) who is replacing Randy Black and the permanent addition of guitarist Tom Naumann, who is back as a permanent member of the band after a long studio break, since their 2005 album "Seven Seals", So! Can you imagine how heavier will they sound? Well, I guess you have an idea if you listen to Iron Maiden, anyway the result is very gratifying, the rest of the band is complemented by Mat Sinner in bass and backing vocals, Ralf Scheepers in vocals, Magnus Karlsson and Alex Beyrodt both of them with Naumann now will share the duties on guitars.

Primal Fear has not been able to lose that label which compared them with the consecrated Judas Priest and "Rulebreaker" does not differ at all with the overloaded Halford-esque vocals of Ralf Scheepers or the guitar riffing implied and sassy, which resembles the British sound, however I have to admit it, somehow I enjoyed it! This is something, that undoubtedly will make you move your head and rise your fist with the horns up, "Angels of Mercy" welcome you with a stunning intro it seems to be taken from a science fiction movie, that rapidly turns up with a heavy, fast riff and thunderous drums give way to the powerful vocals of Ralf Scheepers, "The End Is Near" structured with classic metal riff it is viciously catchy, contrasting thick chorus, support the high-pitched voice, "Bullet & Tears" here is the ear-splitting point because this track is loaded in Priest elements, as well as the ballad "The Sky Is Burning" but they know how to handle the thin line between both distinctive sounds, "Rulebreaker" has some good riff to hook you up, while the bass tunes by Mat Sinner are quite solid, "In Metal We Trust" is another anthem with fast riffage and delirant choruses aiming to inflict a special vibe in their live shows, "We Walk Without Fear" is an outstanding cut, the length allows them to play with varied paces and moods, the riff come and goes in a simple manner without rummage, tracks as "At War with the World", "The Devil in Me" or "Constant Heart" won't let you down at all, every song has its momentum, soaring vocals, melodious choruses, powerful guitars supported by the impressive and blistering drums by Francesco Jovino, the closing track is "Raving Mad" started off with singular pattern drums and a very simple but effective riffing along the song, which allows Ralf to scream freely up to the sky.

Primal Fear has proven over the time their qualities at songwriting and "Rulebreaker" carries with it a handful of tracks that will become in their classics sooner or later, is just a matter of time, for sure this is an album you got to listen, especially if you are in the mood to enjoy such display of energy, fantastic melodies and powerful guitars riff with a hell of drum grooves and soaring screams, definitely a great album!

Stay True… Stay Metal… Stay Brutal...

1. Angels of Mercy
2. The End is Near

Sounds frantic and fearsome as ever before

Master the legendary band leaded by Paul Speckmann has been around for over thirty-three years, his legacy is ours! solidly embodied in thirteen albums, always being a reference to the underground scene, and refusing to be a sellout, with their signature punk style riffing, always carrying with the throaty vocals and ripping solos has defined their sound, over a month ago they released their thirteen full length entitled "An Epiphany of Hate" is simply a follow up in the undying line of prominent albums, always very well accepted by us, their tireless and insatiable followers.

Master legacy started in 1983 after Paul Speckmann and Bill Schmidt leave the local band War Cry based in Chicago, Illinois; After failing in the search for a guitarist, they decide to abandon the project and Speckmann form Death Strike in 1984 recruiting guitarist Chris Mittlebrun (who had auditioned for Master, the previous year), they invited drummer John Leprich, Death Strike recorded a demo entitled "Fuckin' Death" which sends them to the cusp in the underground scene, later on Leprich was replaced by Bill Schmidt, conforming the line-up with Speckmann on bass and vocals, Mittlebrun on guitar and Schmidt on drums, then they renamed the band as Master, by 1985 they were ready to release their debut album under Combat Records but that never happen due to contractual issues and the recordings were buried in time, It was not until 1990 through Nuclear Blast Records, they fail to deliver one of the most brutal and devastating death metal works of that time, their self-titled debut album "Master", a year later, they release their sophomore title "On the Seventh Day God Created... Master" and so! A legend was born, it worth to mention that Master relocated to Czech Republic and the current line-up is as follow: Paul Speckmann on bass and vocals, Alex Nejezchleba in lead and rhythm guitars and Zdenek Pradlovsky behind the Drums.

Taking a look on Master’s discography shows an impressive display of their commitment and dedication, to mention few outstanding titles, I can point of course their aforementioned debut album and sophomore releases as well as the "Unreleased 1985 Album" which finally saw the street light in 2003, "Slaves to Society" in 2007, and the trilogy formed by "The New Elite" in 2012, "The Witchhunt" released in 2013 and their newest album "An Epiphany of Hate" which sounds frantic and fearsome as ever before, "Subdue the Politician" opens with fast violent riff, while the drums are beaten with inherent fury, Speckmann ripping vocals announce the beginning of the journey through forty-four minutes of relentless death metal, the vibe they are capable to transmit is unique, they belong to that early breed of death metal bands who were able to establish the roots, for the bands that will came later, "Face Your Fear" extend the dose of that traditional death metal, with few simple riff they were able to craft a pummeling track, "Just Take My Right Arm" made of thrashing riff with an eloquent bass in the background, unleashes one of the most epic moments with a singular guitar solo, the ceaseless drums doesn't lose the timing and fearful vocals are spit without remorse, the self titled track "An Epiphany of Hate" rumbles through your speakers with a solid bass tunes and galloping guitars to harmonize with subtle melodies at high speed, "It's Clearly Eden" breaks in a furious stampede and sickening vocals, the songwriting allows each instrument sounds very powerful, "Red Alert" is the last track and strike towards your senses with demolishing thrashing riff, the melody inflicted succeeds with a pleasantly guitar solo.

Speckmann and friends stick to their roots and still shooting straight hooks and riff one after another; "An Epiphany of Hate" doesn't show anywhere any sign of mercy, while these guys keep pumping the blood through their hearts, there is still a chance to appreciate a very well respected and true underground death metal band from yesteryear.

Stay True… Stay Metal… Stay Brutal...

1. Subdue the Politician
2. Fiction Soon Becomes Reality
