This is definitely one of the finer prog metal releases of recent times, and certainly of this year so far too. Each song more or less sounds different to the other, and the way in which instrumental performance is co-ordinated in songs like "The Entity", "Life?" and "Rebuild the Ruins" reminds me (in a good way) of Myrath's debut album.

Beautiful album, very atmospheric, and epic in all the right places. It's certainly lifted my spirits that's for sure, although that's probably not what the band intended when making this album. Definitely one of the better albums I've listened to from this genre for a long, long while.

One thing that made made fall instantly in love with this album is its very spiritual energy flowing throughout. You can feel the amount of effort being put into the production of the album and it's simply almost too good to be true. The mixture of evocative, sometimes atmospheric black metal and beautifully integrated eastern influences feels like the perfect musical combination. To be honest, the band's harsher side reminds me of both Borknagar and Burzum, whilst the eastern influences give the band freedom to roam in their own musical world. One of 2013's best extreme metal albums? For me, definitely.

Such a hauntingly beautiful album, and it actually stays with you hours after you've stopped listening to the album itself. It's that memorable. Not just that, but McCoy's voice on here is incredible. Melodic overtones and gothic atmosphere make this one of the albums of the 90's for me.

Its always refreshing for me to hear a Fish album, especially as he is one of my favourite solo musicians. This album has in particular so much variety its almost impossible to note every little thing that makes his music stand out so. The last six songs (contributing to a 25 minute opus called 'Plague of Ghosts') are maybe drawn out a little too long, but not enough to take away from the core values of this promising album by Fish. I sometimes wonder whether marillion or Fish is actually better.

Genuinely thought that this was a novel when I saw the title, but later found out that it was a new album by Steven wilson. I've no idea what my expectations for this are, because every album he's ever been involved in is interesting in some way. I think he was talking about doing a new PT album too, so this year he's being a busy, busy bee. Like every year.

This is about the most blackened piece of music I've heard all year. It sometimes reminds me of early Candlemass and other times of very early MDB, but with a unique and original twist thanks to those well-orchestrated parts throughout. 'Malefica', 'A failed exorcism' and 'Ordeal' alone made me want to check these guys out more. The closer is a little underwhelming for me, but even then there's a sense of grandiosity and epic overtones.

Very solid album, and particularly raises all the good points of a genre at risk of sounding outdated. The keyboards make songs such as 'At the well of the Nazareth' and 'The source' all the more exciting and evil-sounding to listen to, whereas the bass-heavy 'The transit begins' and 'Shiver' obviously favour heavy guitar sounds a la Pentagram (in the 80s), making for a rather unique sound.

A very different sound compared to what we've heard from BMTH in the not too distant past. In particular the production seems a lot more atmospheric and Sykes' vocals seem to have more of a range than usual. There are a lot of songs on here that I could say are the band's best: 'The house of wolves', 'Empire (let them sing)','Shadow Moses' and 'Crooked young', the latter of which making for a very nice sound using symphonic sounds and consequently giving off a classical feel. If this is the direction the band are heading in, I have no doubt that I will become a bigger fan than ever before.
Broken Hope Omen of Disease
Excellent album. Some very brutal and sometimes technical death metal here, though you have to try hard to find variation in some aspects of the band's sound. The vocals and drum rhythms are more or less the same all the way through, but the guitar and bass work is extremely well-executed, specifically on 'Ghastly', the title track and 'The docking dead'. I didn't realize this band were around for as long as they have been either.

Elvenking The Pagan Manifesto
The album Elvenking should have made after "The Winter Wake" in my opinion. It features everything that made the band's first three albums so unique whilst still retaining a melodic yet epic atmosphere, helped to become more relevant by intricate folk musicianship. My personal highlights are the amazing "King of the Elves" and "Twilight of Magic", though near enough every song on here is just as good in their own particular way.

Enthroned XES Haereticum
I was initially introduced to Enthroned's music via "Carnage in Worlds beyond", so it's fairly unsurprising that this album is musically similar. That's not a bad thing at all however, given how aggressive and powerful the musicianship is. Not only that, but the more complex likes of "Vortex of Confusion" and "Seven Plagues, Seven Wraths" really impressed me. The vocals for me are still weak in comparison but nonetheless suitable for this musical style.

Extreme III Sides to Every Story
From start to finish, this is an undoubtedly ambitious concept album which, if not immediately successful, was for Extreme a career-defining piece of work. Split into three parts, the album explores and covers a lot of musical ground. The first part has the most in common with Extreme's earlier material (but is still very reliable given the band's hard-working musical ethic), the mid-section is experimental and proves Bettencourt is more than just a talented guitarist, and the last three songs verge on progressive rock territory. It's a big album to take in, and will require more than one listen to enhance the whole experience, but is certainly a rewarding listen by the end.

Nice album. I particularly like the harshness of the vocals and the musicianship here often accompanies those vocals in the right sort of way. The mixture of blackened riffs and a southern rock tone throughout makes for an interesting sound, though at times this can wear a little thin if played on a repetitive basis. That said, the album is generally very consistent and in my opinion never quite lets up.

A nice slice of sludgy, hypnotic doom. 'Evergreen' is beautiful and 'Woodbine' is powerfully heavy. I really like how the vocals sound so mesmerizing at times too, as on the album opener 'Orchard'.
Wo Fat The Conjuring
Wolf Devil Seed
I expected nothing less than a heavy, solid album full of fist-pumping riffs from Wolf. Nothing new, but "Devil Seed" proves they're as strong and belligerent as ever. 'Shark Attack', 'Surgeons of Lobotomy' and 'Frozen' are my personal highlights.

Decent enough by tech death metal standards but I feel like some of these riffs and solos are forced in rather than flowing with the rest of the instrumentation in a natural way. It's mostly impressive musicianship that's on display here, with vocals a little too hesitant but still relevant for the most part. The first half of the album seems better written than the latter half.

Very interesting album, which is naturally controlled by epic, ambitious atmospheres and a rhythm section which very rarely becomes dull and bland. The vocals however really don't seem to match the quality of the instrumentation, and thus it sounds a little mixed at times. As on 'Sol Invictus' and 'Twelve stars and an azure down', the guitar work is beautiful and the drum/bass work flows very well indeed, but shoddy vocals which prove considerably weaker unfortunately lower the quality a bit. This is however more than made up for with the brilliance of songs such as 'Hersiarch' and excellent closer 'White goddess unveiled', both of which written from the heart and soul.

Pretty good album indeed. I think sometimes the band sound a little too similar to Talanas or Enslaved for my liking, but for the most part they are doing the job just right. Clean vocals are very effective against a constant barrage of progressive black metal structures and sometimes epic atmospheres, though the cleans can be surpassed by the intensity of the growls.

This album really surprised me, though I didn't quite know what to expect before pressing play. For me the real problem here is how clouded everything sounds, but once you listen to the album a few times I guess you can get used to it. Musically it's pretty full on as far as the extreme metal part of the musicianship is concerned, and the background noises such as screeching violins, tinkling keyboards or orgasmic (?) female moans and wails add extra effect. I only wish the production could be a bit clearer to truly emphasize these little sounds.

A lot of promise on show here, especially in regards to the way in which melody and brutal technical musicianship is intertwined. "Lost Pages" has a wonderful ambient section and the solos throughout "Stories through the storms" and "My Cancer" are well executed. I think the main problem here is the band's lack of focus sometimes as structures becomes too clogged up with unnecessary additional dynamics or electronic interludes.

Band has obviously been listening to a lot of 80s metal for inspiration, and there's a lot of proof in each of this album's nine songs. Nothing wrong with that though because instrumentation is very solid and catchy all the way through. The vocalist for me brings the quality down a notch or two, but I think you can get past that by considering how well done the solos are in songs such as the title track and "Sign of the warrior".

Pretty good album, even if every song pretty much follows the same formula. It's essentially an album full of punchy powerful songs and soaring vocals, just like consistent power metal should be. Not sure why it's labelled here as "progressive" power metal (I myself can't see where the progressive part comes in), but it'd definitely consistent as a power metal album. A few weak tracks on here such as 'Follow', 'Ares' and 'Absence of light' disappointed me a little, but that's probably only because they're overshadowed by stronger songs such as excellent opener 'beneath a veil of crying souls' and 'Within a dream'.

Just had a look at the album's wikipedia page, and it seems that the album is only 50 minutes long. So its not going to be as dreadfully long as Cradle's last two albums. It might still suck though...
Culted Oblique to All Paths
Ideas here are interesting but the main problem is that most of the songs are drawn out for too long. The first half of both 'Brooding Hex' and 'Illuminati' are brilliantly executed but at some point the instrumentation becomes rather stale, and though this does indeed suit the doom sub-genre rather well, there could have been a stronger emphasis on power and surprise than simple repetition. That said, 'March of the wolves' and 'Transmittal' are monolithic in atmosphere.

Good, but this album is essentially a mixed bag. Some songs are instrumentally brilliant, whereas others simply get lost in themselves far too quickly and as a result have no sense of direction. The vocals are okay, sometimes even brilliant, but too often seem to take away from the focus on the musicianship. It also suffers from the fact that the vocals appear a little too low in the mix, so what you're really hearing is an unbalanced sound. That said, the songwriting here is very consistent and near enough every song manages to regain its excellent musical quality because of that. My personal favourite song would be the instrumental 'A negligible senescence', though only because it focuses on instrumentation.

Decent enough by Metalcore standards, but the vocals here really distract me from the (sometimes) brilliant heaviness on tracks such as 'Killing in your name' and 'Surface'. At least it's an improvement over the last few rubbish Metalcore albums I've had the pain of listening to.

Not quite as bad as people are making out, but that doesn't change the fact that this album-and band-are over-hyped. Half of the songs are little better than a sub-par Emmure/Slipknot crossover style yet the other half are somewhat experimental and, dare I say it, unique. The dark-tinged "Take it" and "Devil don't Cry" largely eclipse the monotony of songs like "Best Nite of my Life", and closer "State of Nature" succeeds in ending the album on a relative high. A mixed album which will undoubtedly divide fanbases in the near future, but which is also sort of career-defining.

Interesting in parts, but this album just has a 50/50 balance of good psychedelic music and boring ambient sections which frankly left me hovering over the skip button. Maybe with the band's next album they can come up with something truly unique, but the debut album is simply above average at best.

Gallhammer The End
A good album,but not quite as impressive as 'ill innocence' THis album shows that even without a guitar, gallhammer can still make some brilliant material,as on the final track, with its inclusion of squealing saxophone. Great sound. A guitar might have helped to better the album's general effect though...
Godsmack 1000hp
Ill Nino Till Death, La Familia
It's average for the most part, certainly, but there are some nice moments to be found here. The solos in "Not alive in my Nightmare" and "Are we so Innocent" are pretty decent, and some songs are obviously better than others. I was expecting more of a prominent latin influence in this album (though I haven't heard any of the band's more recent work), and the monotonous metalcore style is just here to stay, it seems.
