Bloody f@#ck - it is insane how great this EP is. Words cannot express this 15 minute eargasm. Like an oreo - this EP is heavier on the bookends, and softer in the middle - but just damn perfect.

The more I listen to this album, the more intricacies I hear and the more I dig this. It's as if Tool and Evanescence met in Ontario, CAN and gave birth. A defunct band now, I believe...unfortunate as they had a lot of talent.

A solid outing from a seasoned band, which plays out as a story of two halves. First 5 tracks seem to fit nicely and lead into together, with tracks 2-4 being intricately prepared bangers. And the transition between Beneath the Rose and Choir is to die for. Second half includes good low country metal tracks that TBH - they could make in their sleep. So first half overwhelms, 2nd half somewhat underwhelms. But the production and mixing is great, which is much appreciated after the train wreck of G&G.

here in spades, playing all instruments. Also cannot say enough about Paralandra lead singer Casandra Carson.
She sounds spectacular on this ep.

A great, eclectic mix of covers, with a Ghost twist on each. Some covers are a bit obscure, not dissimilar to prior Ghost covers and/or EPs. The IM cover is my fav so far.

Had read reviews - and came in expecting some lame outing between the worst of grunge/alternative and post-grunge Creed. Surprised to find that the music was fresh (up to date), has some good mix of both introspective and heavy moments - and that Chester sounds young but very good. Kinda has a feel similar to Dead by Sunrise, an album I dug. Great work in bringing this back to life.

Losa The Perfect Moment
Wasn?t expecting much - saw a vague comparison to Tool in a review and decided to pick it up unheard. This was after
my third trip to this store - this album still being there. This is quite the varied album, texturally, going as heavy as
Meshuggah on a few tracks. Calling this metalcore is too limiting. It is truly a 40 min ride - transitioning through several
metal genres and seamlessly between tracks. Also, quite the vocal display. At the end of my first listen, I had a ?WTF
was that? moment, in a great way. thought I had heard it all - guess not!

Nita Strauss The Call Of The Void
Nita can really make some catchy, lead driven MDM. Most of her instrumentals fit this mode, as well as the tracks with A White-Gluz and A. Friden on vocals. These tracks slay! It?s where she ?dumbs? down her songwriting to fit more mainstream artist styles (e.g., D. Draimen, L. Hale) that doesn?t hit as hard. Not that the tracks with guest vocalists are not good; Disturbed, for ex., could use her guitar chops. It just makes the album a bit disjointed in areas.

Loving the strong RATM vibes here. Someone?s gotta say what the majority of us (rational people) are thinking. Out with the orange.
Otep Generation Doom
Rising out of the hot mess of prior, spoken word dominated albums; Otep delivers a strong return to form here.
Otep Live_Confrontation
An exemplary visual/aural capture of early OTEP live tracks, primarily from the albums Sevas
Tra and The Ascension. Set is interspersed with spoken work interludes, truly enhancing the
individual live tracks relative to their album counterparts. Otep Shamala is a force and at
top vocal form. And awesome to see Aaron Norstrom (of Gemini Syndrome) on guitar.

By any other band, this would be a monumental album. But given the strength of Soen?s discography, this one falls a bit less. The heavier tracks perhaps retreading too much that Imperial already accomplished, with the intricate, staccato riffing and sugary vocal Melodies. Still very good and worth several listens, and the packaging is pretty sweet.

Corey Taylor CMF2
A wide and versatile album it is. From Slipknot level (Post Traumatic Blues, All I Want is Hate) to punk (We Are
the Rest) to just plain rock (Midnight), this album encompasses the entire breadth of CMFT -
and shows how many different genres that he can dominate. And that's not why this album is good. If anything, this
makes the album inconsistent and more a compilation of diverse tracks. However, there are some true gems on this
album - Post
Traumatic Blues (already mentioned), Beyond, Sorry Me (a Snuff like track) - and most
especially Dead Flies. The later is a haunting/haunted track that only CMFT can pull
off. You can, however, have Breath of Fresh Smoke - not my type of jam, at all.
Destrophy Cry Havoc
A much more mainstream album. Still packs a punch, but only 31 minutes and their prior edges have been polished.

Orquesta del Desierto Orquesta del Desierto
This album features the other side of desert rock, which is not so pronounced as the Kyuss-influenced side. Features and a laundry list of desert legends including Mario Lalli, Alfredo Hernandez, and Pete Stahl. A truly unique listen.
Otep The God Slayer
This album consists of four originals and eight covers. It starts off great with
"Ostracized", an original, poignant and social commentary track that only OTEP could make.
This track is almost worth the price of the album itself. The remaining 3 original OTEP
tracks are OK, but have little impact. The covers are a bit of a mixed bag, but overall
good. Favorites are "You Should See Me in a Crown", "The Way I Am", and "Pet" - "Pet" seems
to be an obvious fit for OTEP. Wasn't big on "Good 4 U" at the beginning, but this track is
a grower. Was expecting to love "Territorial Pissings" and "Purity", but there's something
about the recording of these tracks that makes them seem small. The cover of "California
Girls" - yeah it's a misogynistic song to begin with - but never got THAT impression from
listening to the Beach Boys.

Unsaid Fate Never Turning Back
Who says an EP can't be a triumphant return? This EP finds the band Jackie, reformed with a new guitarist and bassist as Unsaid Fate. Although just 6 tracks, this EP includes higher octane hard rock tracks, continued great vocals by Jackie LaPonza, and some minor incorporation of harsh vocals. Jackie continues to be the focal point - and rightly so. Also, a couple good videos came from this EP - for tracks Our Addiction and Always (a prior Jackie track).
