2014
Animals As Leaders The Joy of Motion4.0
The Pretty Reckless Going to Hell3.5
Eths Ex Umbra In Solem3.5
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.
XTRMST XTRMST4.0
De La Tierra De La Tierra3.5
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.
Skindred Kill the Power4.0
Against Me! Transgender Dysphoria Blues3.5
Alcest Shelter4.5

2013
Blood Eagle Kill Your Tyrants3.5
Lody Kong No Rules3.5
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.
Devouring Star Demo 20133.5
Arcology The Fall4.0
An Autumn For Crippled Children Try Not To Destroy Everything You Love4.0
Sockweb Bullies Are Mean4.0
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.
A Lot Like Birds No Place4.0
Sepultura The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart4.0
Soulfly Savages4.5
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".
Korn The Paradigm Shift4.0
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.
Bear Noumenon4.0
Max Raptor Mother's Ruin4.0
Scar the Martyr Scar the Martyr3.5
From what I've heard so far Scar the Martyr is a solid effort for Slipknot's long awaited 5th album.
StormLord Hesperia4.0
Scar the Martyr Revolver3.5
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.
Stray From the Path Anonymous4.0
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.
Cloudkicker Subsume4.5
Carcass Surgical Steel4.5
Nine Inch Nails Hesitation Marks3.5
Saint[the]Sinner The Curious Tale of Mistress Murder2.5
DevilDriver Winter Kills4.5
Fleshgod Apocalypse Labyrinth4.0
De Memoria Tales4.0
Nice slab of melodic hardcore in a strong debut album. Hope to see more from these guys in the future.
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.
Maximum the Hormone Yoshu Fukushu4.0
Chimaira Crown of Phantoms3.5
Butcher Babies Goliath2.5
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).
Erimha Reign Through Immortality4.0
Chthonic Bu-Tik4.5
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.
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 World is a Beautiful Place... Whenever, If Ever3.5
Black Sabbath 134.0
Summoning Old Mornings Dawn4.0
The Dillinger Escape Plan One of Us Is the Killer4.0
Captain, We're Sinking The Future Is Cancelled4.0
Steak Number Eight The Hutch4.5
Killswitch Engage Disarm the Descent3.5
Bring Me The Horizon Sempiternal4.5
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.

Coheed and Cambria The Afterman: Descension4.0
Pure Love Anthems4.0
Love and Death Between Here And Lost4.5
Can't wait for this. Fading Away has a massive late 90's Korn vibe. I miss nu metal. Just wish it wasn't so.... Christian.
United Nations Illegal UN4.0
Animus Sadist Ignorance​,​ Their Greatest Weapon3.5

2012
Theophany Time's End: Majora's Mask Remixed3.5
Make A Change...Kill Yourself Fri4.0
Smosh Smoshtastic3.0
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.
Incite All Out War3.5
Bog standard groove, well executed. That's hard to find nowadays.
Deftones Koi No Yokan4.5
Hacktivist Hacktivist4.5
Dethklok Dethalbum III4.5
DIE FOR DETHKLOK. All the songs released so far have been top notch and I don't see it being any lower than a 4. But from what I've heard I'm giving a 4.5 and it's not likely to lower.
The Haarp Machine Disclosure4.0
Tradjectory Tradjectory4.0
Djenty. Slower passages work well within the album. Will do a proper review when I have the time and have given it plenty of time to fully sink in.
Coheed and Cambria The Afterman: Ascension4.0
Trash Talk 1193.5
Muse The 2nd Law1.5
AxeWound Vultures3.5
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.
The Devin Townsend Project Epicloud5.0
Gallows Gallows4.0
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).
Black Light Burns The Moment You Realize You're Going To Fall3.5
While She Sleeps This Is The Six4.0
Cloudkicker Fade4.5
One Fell Down Dead Man Walking3.5
Lots of groove and aggression, executed well, but has that sort of "heard it all before" feel to it.

Pure Love Handsome Devils Club3.5
2 Pretty good songs and music videos from Pure Love's upcoming debut, massive change from the music that both members used to put out.

2011
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.

Short but oh so sweet. Scarborough Fair and Oblivion (aka I Bleed On Your Panini) particular highlights.
Goddess Gagged Resurfaces4.0
Delicate blend of post-hardcore and progressive metal pulled off very well by this up and coming Indian band. Expect big things from these guys.
Fear and The Nervous System Fear and The Nervous System3.5
Evile Five Serpent's Teeth4.0
Great thrash album, the genre's not really my thing (just ask some of the many people I've baffled by saying I know only a handful of Metallica songs) but this is in my top 10 albums for the year for sure.
