At the Gates Purgatory Unleashed: Live At Wacken
Classic set list, great performance, enormous crowd, flawless production. ATG were in vintage form at Wacken in front of an ocean of fans and this captures it perfectly. Wanna go to an incredible show without leaving your home? Get this and play it twice for good measure.
This should have been a disaster but Su-metal totally sells it. SEE YOU IN THE MOSH PIT

Gamma Ray Hell Yeah!!! The Awesome Foursome
A great representation of Gamma Ray's exciting live show, though the DVD is worth getting
over the CD version. The musicianship is top-notch as always, and Kai Hansen does a great
job of playing to the crowd. It has all the power of Skeletons in the Closet, and you won't
go wrong picking this up whether you're a fan already or not.
Giant Squid The Ichthyologist
This is exactly what we were all hoping for after Metridium Fields. Giant Squid has refined their songwriting and lyrical approach to create a seamless and epic piece of music -- integrating new instruments and new band members perfectly.rTracks like "Dean Man Slough" and "Blue Linckia" roll on over churning riffs and an atmosphere tailor-made for the lyrical concepts of swampy revenge and ocean turmoil. "Throwing a Donner Party at Sea" (a reworking of a song from Monster in the Creek) is a brilliantly executed rocker whose title is a maritime take on the Donner Party story.rThe Ichthyologist is a solid concept piece that shows a band living up to its terrific creative potential... and I can't wait to hear what they come up with next.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor F♯ A♯ ∞
Gojira The Flesh Alive
Seems a bit redundant to release this a month after the live DVD that's part of L'enfant rSauvage...but it's going to be amazing, especially in Blu-Ray. couldn't pick a better band rto see/hear in super high quality.

Kalmah They Will Return
Magma Mekanïk Destruktiw Kommandoh
The scope of this album is mind-boggling. Magma invented their own genre to tell Christian
Vander's apocalyptic story, including their own language based around the music. Blasquiz's
voice is ridiculous in range and tone, and the rhythm section (Jannick Top and Vander)
creates the funkiest, most thunderous foundation I've ever heard. If you have any interest
in experimental music, jazz, progressive rock, or outer space, get this right now.
Magma Live
Mastodon Leviathan
Mastodon Crack the Skye
The intricacy of this album took me a while to wrap my head around, but if you buy into the ideas behind the album, you'll be rewarded with a masterpiece of songwriting that marries the brutal power of Mastodon's earlier efforts with a touch of imagination and beauty.
Moonsorrow Verisakeet
Nightwish End Of An Era
Opeth In Live Concert at the Royal Albert Hall
Live albums (and DVD's) just don't get any better than this. Frontman Akerfeldt is spot-on and the rest of the band do their thing perfectly in performing their classic album Blackwater Park, and on one of the world's greatest stages. A must-have for any fan who can tolerate seriously good music.

It's Oceanic with more oomph. Isis speed things up a bit and there aren't any female vox, so it's a bit different. Of course, that just means you have to hear it because it's brilliant in a slightly different way than the original. Oh, and that damn WHACK WHACK snare drum is fixed...yeah I'm looking at you, Matt Bayles.

Checks all the right boxes of Meshuggah worship, but the real treat here is the pacing and assembly. Frequent ambient breaks and suspenseful dropouts make for a much more engaging experience than typical pounding chaos. At half an hour, the album is also short enough to keep its momentum all the way through. Very good overall listen.
At the Gates Terminal Spirit Disease

BABYMETAL Live Legend I, D, Z Apocalypse
While I can't speak for the others, the first concert here ("I") is astoundingly good.
Suzuka is clearly the leader and has a stupendous voice and all three show great energy and
crowd-play, while the backing band kicks ass all show. Considering the spectrum of how good
or bad this whole Babymetal thing could have been, this is about perfect. Set aside
pretension and just have fun with this.

Working on a review for this now. Should be done soon. Not typical Giant Squid but still a cool album, the first two tracks are terrific.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven
Beautifully orchestrated, and the opening song is about as emotive as music gets, though it does drag around end of the first disc. Godspeed have a formula that works, despite the fact that it is sounding more and more like a formula.
Gojira The Way of All Flesh
Gojira L'Enfant Sauvage
Like when Mastodon pulled back the throttle on Crack the Skye, Gojira spend a lot of time impressing with mid-paced creative forays, but not really thrilling you. If that comparison proves accurate, however, it will be a big time grower.
Graviton Massless
Writing a review for this now. In a time where almost nothing is "unique", Sacha and company have created an extremely well-crafted piece of music that is both alien and accessible, a combination that is sure to open many new fans to the world of progressive metal.

"almost nothing happens throughout the whole album, it's just one predictable build to ranother predictable build"rThat's like analyzing the sentence structure of Moby-Dick and concluding that it's just a rbunch of descriptions that build to more descriptions with way too many commas in between. rLight Bearer are a medium for a story and ideology, and without that framework it is indeed rjust a bunch of build ups and riffs like any other post-metal album. An opinion is just rthat, but I think this album demands a more holistic view than most.

Terra Tenebrosa The Purging
The Afterglow Cadence The Fight
The Fight is a fine collection of pop rock songs based around classic singer-songwriter
arrangements. Standout song "Pressure" flirts with jazz harmonies and builds steadily
over shuffling percussion and careful vocal harmonies. "Life's Not So Bad" has some great
acoustic guitar work, with a chorus that threatens to lead into Green Day's smash hit
"Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)." Towards the end of the album, "Just Say the Word"
overcomes some shaky moments via a strong crunchy REM-esque guitar riff, while
"Jackknife" and closer "Pictures" ride clever chord progressions that hint at Brian
Donarski and Ian Steur's comfort with the theory behind what makes them beautiful.
Donarski's bass work is a high point on all tracks, and the whole band seems to be
thoroughly enjoying themselves. You probably will too.

The last two songs make up for the lack of creative punch on the rest of the album in a massive way. Firmament has some great moments too. Worth checking out if you're into progressive metal.
The Ocean Anthropocentric
This is the sound The Ocean was trying for when they shook things up after Precambrian - much wider dynamic range, bigger climaxes, more poignant spacial areas, and for the first time, this band really grooves during sections. A big step forward.

Every instrument here seems to have a mind of its own, but somehow they all end up on the
same path by the end. There are little timing issues scattered about, and that bass is
sometimes overpowering, but the foundation is all there for a great and eclectic
collection of songs. Trvth is well in-tune with the notion that on the best albums, no
two songs sound the same, and runs with it. Highlights include "Fire Inside," with its
slow-burning build, "Aura," and "V," the album's very worthwhile payoff.

The ingredients are familiar, but EC have quality chops and assemble some very solid songs, particularly the closer, "Enthalpy". The low-end is a little overwhelming, so the guitars get drowned a little, but overall it's a tight EP. There were some ballsy riffs that reminded me of For the Revolution-era Kalmah, which is always a good thing. A full album of this would be excellent.

As far as debut albums go, this is really quite good. There aren't many major flaws...maybe some generic moments, but I consider those neutral rather than negative. Song like "Innocence" and "Familiar Taste of Poison", while nothing groundbreaking, are excellently performed and Lzzy's vocals are powerful and always in tune. This is a great place to work from for the band going forward. Exciting to think what they're capable of in the future.

Thank goodness they mixed the vocals way down. Mastodon plays everything like -- or better than -- the album, sometimes a bit faster...basically it rocks. The unorthodox song choices from Blood Mountain (Circle of Cysquatch) and Leviathan (Aqua Dementia) at first seem odd, but in concert sound terrific. They also get big points for deciding before the show that everything that happened on stage would be on the record: no overdubs, no re-takes. This is their show, warts and all...and it is awesome.

I really wanted to like this album. I bought and listened to the whole thing, tedious as it may have been. We all know DragonForce plays variations on the same very fast, very technical song over and over and over...which worked for a while because it was also a very good song. But four albums into their career, it's beginning to sound stale. These guys have the chops to create good music, as is apparent in bits and pieces here. It's time to put that ability to better use.

Helloween Unarmed
For all the talk about how tongue-in-cheek Helloween has always been, it should still be their top priority to give their fans quality power metal albums. Rehashing old material is okay if it's an improvement, but it sounds a lot like Helloween are making fun of themselves and it's not particularly funny this time.
One would think that "Chameleon" should have taught this band to stick to what they do best...and to leave this type of experiment to the bands that aren't able to forge great music the way Helloween always has.
