Not exactly metal as fuck and generally heavy enough to detract certain Bullet fans, so this isn't going to go down too well on either side. Those in the middle will enjoy this album though, and there are plenty of good tracks. Exorchrist does sound like a sub-par Bullet For My Valentine b-side though.
BABYMETAL Babymetal5.0
How can you not 5 this. The idol J-Pop somehow mixes with the various styles of metal present in this album from thrash to deathcore. Mixing J-Pop and metal has been done before, for evidence check your average moody seinen/shounen anime theme tunes, and of course, Maximum the Hormone. but never quite to this extent.

Immediate reactions are that this is a contender for AOTY and I hope that people realise this and actually buy the album. This is easily capable of being THAT album that breaks the top of the charts in the UK, USA etc. - something we've needed since Slipknot made waves for the nu metal scene over 10 years ago.

Eh. I dig the music hard but the vocals drag everything down a bit too much for it to be really listenable on a regular basis. Maybe give them time and they could improve (after all this is just the debut album).

The black metal elements have become slightly more apparent than in Takasago Army but overall this album continues their progression away from the symphonic black metal scene and into their own oriental extreme style. Fans of the bm output may not enjoy this but others will love it.

Eths are back with a new frontwoman - viral star Rachel Aspe. The new voice may take some getting used to but overall, for what it is, it's a good showcase of what the band will sound like in future. Considering it's 6/7 old songs I can't rate it much higher though.

Korn The Path of Totality4.0
The emerging style of "dub metal" is set to dominate rock and metal airwaves in the next few years, and is likely to be the next mainstream rock medium. Korn have set a high benchmark with The Path Of Totality, and while the genre is definitely capable of improving, this album is set to provide a new gateway and surely prove the doubters wrong. Top tracks: Narcissistic Cannibal, Sanctuary, Bleeding Out.

Am I the only one who thinks TALITM was their last truly good nu metal album? Either way this is awesome. I actually think Lullaby for a Sadist is the best track which is funny as this one was written before Head rejoined.

The vocals might grate for a few people but the musicianship is there, they may not be the most complex riffs but the grooves are there as the next generation of Cavaleras show a more hardcore punk direction to their music.

Tis good. The two extra tracks show a bit more variety in their sound than Blood Host and Soul Disintegration had let on and it provides a nice preview of the album, even if the two better tracks won't actually be on the album.

Rating as good because musically it's clear they've improved and their vocals have actually improved too. Metal Mom shows that Anthony has actually got a good scream on him, and the fact that this album's purely for fun and parody, I think it does its job fairly well, however some songs don't work so well without the videos.

Yeah it's gimmicky as hell having a grindcore band fronted by a 7 year old girl, but the EP
is actually very musically sound. It's a fun listen and the vocals bouncing between father
and daughter work really well, accompanied by some ridiculous random samples.

The band has to forsake the speed and aggression that was found on Enslaved in order to bleed in young drummer Zyon Cavalera who's only really had a couple of years' experience behind the kit but he does a very respectable job on this album, where grooves are the name of the game and are very well executed, for example, in "Fallen" and "This Is Violence".

Rage Against the Machine's long awaited 4th album. Nah but seriously although it's a rather obvious rip off in many ways, they still pull it off (unlike certain other bands *cough*A7X*cough*) and it's an enjoyable album.

Sylencer A Lethal Dose Of Truth4.0
Old school thrash. Lovely stuff. Guestlist is enough reason to give this album a spin, and while not exactly original it's musically tight and is a brilliant piece of thrash metal that Metallica would struggle to conjure up nowadays. Picks: Day By Day, Shock And Awe, Rise and Die, Get It Up (featuring the magnificent Gene Hoglan on drums and The Heathen of Zimmers Hole on vocals among others).

The Defiled Grave Times Live3.5
Nice little release for those who donated money towards the new album "Daggers". Musically performed pretty well although it sounds like they recorded this after an extensive tour cos Stitch's vocals seem a bit tired.
The Defiled Grave Times4.0
The Defiled 18884.5
Flawless industrial laced metalcore. Shame they couldn't quite match it on Grave Times.
The Defiled Daggers4.0
The Defiled have further developed their sound, and are all the better for it. They still wear their influences on their sleeves at times (like in the Marilyn Manson-esque "Porcelain") but they know how to write a song, with big choruses to match. I think it's now fairer to say they are more industrial than metalcore nowadays but that's just me.rOne potential weak spot for this album is in the drumming, though. Unlike in previous releases where Stitch and The AvD programmed all the drums, they've let new drummer Needles record all the drums himself and while he's a capable drummer (his time in STOMP is testament to his abilities) he might not be suited to this style of music. Oh yeah it fits fine but it's not as good as could be.
