Rabbit Junk Singles from the Lost Years 2011-20134.0
Drowning Pool Hellelujah2.0
Not many will be aware, but well known Facebook shitposters Drowning Pool are also musicians. Now comes their new album Hellelujah, no memes present but not much else of note either. The band seem content to trudge the same territory over and over, trying to replicate the sound of their breakout album "Sinner", but only die-hard fans are gonna really enjoy this.
Black Sabbath The End3.5

SikTh Opacities4.0
Maximum the Hormone Mimi Kajiru Shinuchi4.0
Maximum the Hormone re-recorded their ultra-rare (now out of print) 2002 album Mimi Kajiru as a bonus for fans who purchased their live album Deka vs Deka, and the growth in musicianship is clear. Some songs have seen radical changes, such as the crazy breakbeat moments of the new look "Abara Bob", while both Johnny Tetsu Pipe tracks have been merged together for Johnny Tetsu Pipe III. The lack of 2 tracks is a shame but this is a great re-recording for new fans to experience more MTH music, and die-hard fans with all the old music to see how the band have grown in terms of musical ability (if not in maturity) in the past 14 years.

Sweet Exile Sweet Exile3.5
Fightstar Behind the Devil's Back5.0
Having heard the whole album (full review http://www.rocksins.com/reviews/fightstar-behind-the-
devils-back/), there is honestly nothing wrong with it. It takes influence from all the old albums
and their other projects: The poppier moments hark back to Charlie's natural ability to write
hooks in Busted, the heavier moments remind one of the darker moments of "One Day Son" and "Be
Human", the electronics take a lot from Gunship, and all that thrown in with pure prog moments and
it just creates the ultimate Fightstar album. Some people may be unhappy at the lack of a
"Damocles" moment, but with tracks like Titan taking that heaviness and throwing in a healthy dose
of melody, they're not really missed.
Arandu Arakuaa Wdê Nnãkrda3.5
Steak Number Eight Kosmokoma4.0
No Devotion Permanence4.0
The old projects do not need to be mentioned here and as such I refuse to refer to them by name. No Devotion stands on its own as one of the post-punk releases of the year. Pure quality throughout. I hope they get the recognition they deserve and are able to stand out on their own merit now.
Bring Me the Horizon That's the Spirit2.5
While the songwriting is more consistent and tighter, it really lacks the urgency and feel of TIAH and Sempiternal, as well as lacking any true stand out songs. TIAH had songs like "It Never Ends" and "Crucify Me" and Sempiternal had such a strong ending with "Hospital For Souls" as well as other great tracks like "Sleepwalking". Throne is the best track on this album but place it on any other album and it would just be another track rather than the main highlight. This isn't to say it's a bad album but it's a definite step back in quality.
Slayer Repentless3.0
Once Human The Life I Remember4.0
It doesn't present anything new but is brilliant for what it is. Enough in it to avoid becoming an Arch Enemy clone and the clean vocals are done in such a way as to avoid being too like The Agonist.rFull review: http://www.rocksins.com/reviews/once-human-the-life-i-remember-25530/
Iron Maiden The Book of Souls4.0
Crazy Town The Brimstone Sluggers2.0
It's very Hollywood Undead-esque. Although Epic did write a few HU songs in the past. There's a
couple of decent songs on it but they haven't learned from all the troubles they've been through
in their hiatus. Almost 10 years of trying to release an album, Shifty's drug problems and coma,
the deaths of DJ AM and Rust Epique, you'd think those would help them mature as lyricists but
no.rThe fact they're not trying to be a nu metal band anymore works in their favour, there's a lot
of mainstream rap like moments but it's still firmly in the alternative sphere of hip-hop and I'd
give it a 2/5. It's not TERRIBLE but it's not exactly good either. It's also better than their god
awful first album. I will say that the song "My Place" (originally released in 2010 in one of the
previous aborted album sessions) is the worst song on the album by some distance because of the
gratuitous autotune.

Witchour The Haunting4.5
First EP by the Argentines and it's rather great. Well produced, tight musicianship and great hooks in the chorus. The harsh vocals might not be for everyone but this EP is pretty damn good.
Bullet for My Valentine Venom3.5
Bullet top their last two efforts here. The songwriting is much stronger and the overall musicianship is back. The main problem Bullet have here, which is something that's plagued their releases for their whole career, has been the fact they slip so easily into a formula. So many of the tracks on this album will follow the same pattern of one big scream in the opening seconds starting the music, which is OK in small doses but once you notice the pattern, it can get quite jarring.
Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes Blossom4.0
Frank's back. And he's ANGRY. Definitely taking cues from Orchestra of Wolves era Gallows while incorporating more half-singing from Carter and more old school punk with a modern hardcore twist.
Stray From the Path Subliminal Criminals4.0
Soulfly Archangel4.0
http://www.rocksins.com/reviews/soulfly-archangel-album-review-25364/ for my views on it.

A word to the wise though, unless you're a completionist/fan of the Soulfly instrumentals (like I
am)/want the bonus DVD, avoid the Special Edition of the album. A You Suffer cover (introduced by
Max's kinda annoying grandson) and an alternate lyrics version of Deceiver are all that await you
aside from the traditional instrumental track.
Works of Flesh Plagued4.5
Saint Asonia Saint Asonia2.5
You know what you're getting into if you have any familiarity with the other members' main projects, but there's still some enjoyable moments. It's all very much alt metal/hard rock by numbers and one would hope that in future they'll try to do something JUST A LITTLE BIT different. But don't hold out much hope for that. If you like some plain old inoffensive rock then you'll enjoy this, but for those looking for something a little different, look elsewhere.
Her Blood In My Veins NOA4.0
Psycho Choke No Place In My Soul3.0
ChugChugWob Redemption1.5
Cradle of Filth Hammer of the Witches4.0
I've generally avoided the Filth and only treated them as a running joke in The IT Crowd ("It sounds horrible, but it's actually quite beautiful") but I'm genuinely impressed by this album. Everything works together, the guitars are lethal and the symphonic elements accentuate the live instruments nicely. Dani Filth has a very "love it or hate it" vocal style but it wouldn't be Cradle of Filth without his trademark banshee wailing.
Realm Unseen The Origin2.0
Refused Freedom4.0
Fantastic album, pretty eclectic and just the band doing what they wanted. The strong presence of funk and blues music may be a bit jarring on first listen but it's a fun and enjoyable listen. These songs will translate well live.
Straight Line Stitch Transparency3.0
It's alright. Listenable, cohesive and well produced but there's not much from it. Vocals are the strong point.

Silvia Siffredi Kurrie!3.5
Deathstars The Perfect Cult3.0
Body Count Manslaughter4.0
It's a fun album, with serious moments but the highlights are when Ice T is anything but. Key point here is the fantastic cover of Suicidal Tendencies' "Institutionalized",d as "Institutionalized 2014". Ice T's ranting over pushy wives, unhelpful customer support and hipsters make this one of my favourite songs of the year, not necessarily for musical quality but for sheer hilarity.
Beartooth Disgusting3.0
It's far from original but it's well executed enough, very listenable and a massive step up from Caleb's previous band.
Arch Enemy War Eternal3.0
It's not a bad album by any stretch and this is my first tie listening to Arch Enemy after following Alissa's move from The Agonist so there may be much better older albums but for what I know, it's not a bad album. It's not that great either though. There are many moments which seem a little stale/predictable for the melodeath genre and plenty of times in the songs where I think "this is the perfect time for Alissa to come in with some cleans" but nothing and the screams just don't feel right in those spots. Introducing cleans in Arch Enemy would be a risk, yes, but I reckon it could pay off and shake things up a bit.
The Black Passage The Nothing Is Now3.0
Diablery Architect2.5
The Algorithm Octopus43.5
Remi shows a more commercial oriented and relaxed take on his unique style here and, while it's a competent release, it lacks the aggression of the demos and Polymorphic Code that really made him stand out. While it's understandable that he wants to try new styles out with The Algorithm, one has to hope that this album is just Remi going through the motions and we'll see a return to the heavier side on album #3.

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.

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.

Dethklok The Doomstar Requiem4.0
With the animation it's a 4.5. Musically still a 4 but a low 4. The music's still great and
gives us proper quality for the series' poppier moments, as well as properly showing off
Brendon Small's vocal capabilities, with him taking on almost every member of the band's
vocal duties as well as countless over characters. The contributions of Corpsegrinder Fisher
along with cameos from Jack Black, Mark Hamill and Malcom McDowell are also fantastic.
Recommended that you watch the movie first though otherwise the soundtrack won't make much
sense to you.
Sepultura The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart4.0
Circles Infinitas3.0
Soulfly Savages3.5
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".
A Day to Remember Common Courtesy3.5
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.

From what I've heard so far Scar the Martyr is a solid effort for Slipknot's long awaited 5th album.
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 Anonymous3.5
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.

The Hell You're Listening To THE HELL3.5
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 Fukushu4.5
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.
August Burns Red Rescue & Restore3.0

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.

Immediate reactions are that this is a contender for AOTY and I hope that people realise this and actually buy the album.

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: Ascension3.5
AxeWound Vultures3.0
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.

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 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.

Kyo 300 Lesions3.0
Kyo take a darker and somewhat more rock-oriented direction in their then-final album, after the success of Le Chemin the previous year. Songs like Contact and Sad Day are way harder hitting than most bands of their ilk, with Sad Day feeling like something many post-hardcore bands wouldn't mind writing. However they'd go more indie with their 2014 comeback album.

1. Decorated 2. Hurt You So Bad 3. Battle Cry 4. Change 5. Drowning -- That should have been the
track list. Had they released Darkhorse as an EP like that, it would have been a 3.5/5 for me. The
problem was they couldn't do an album without excessive filler and macho posturing. Maybe if this
had been an EP, it would have bought them more time to release a credible album and sustain some
success instead of the implosion that happened as a result.

Soulfly 33.0
Max must've heard the stuff Ektomorf were doing and figured they'd try something like that, with Soulfly's full on nu metal assault that was "Primitive" being replaced by more thrash leanings. The nu metal aspects still remained and it wouldn't be until "Dark Ages" when things really went back to thrash, but it was a small sign of things to come.

I have to improve this rating, listening to this album while driving down an empty motorway in the middle of the night really lets you properly experience all the facets of the album that make it so great.

Crazy stuff. That's all I can really say. Two bassists, various different styles and singers (apparently one of Lynn Strait's final recordings was made with these guys) yet they pull it off.
