I mean, is there even any point doing something if K-Rino does it first? Sure, you'll have done well and people will appreciate what you've done, but you'll always be in the shadow of K-Rino. It's genuinely almost uncomfortable how real he remains with the quality he puts out.K-Rino American Heroes (The Big Seven #5)4.0K-Rino Enter The Iron Trap (The Big Seven # 3)4.0If this was any other rapper this would be a 5... K-Rino Conception Of Concept (The Big Seven #2)5.0Had to change this to a 5. Possibly my favourite from the entire #7. The only thing that I dislike about this album is the chorus on '1 Nite Stand', which is possibly the gayest (no homophobo) thing I've ever heard from K-Rino.

But for those (like me) who were hoping they would keep the style of 'Isotheos', you will be ever-so-slightly disappointed. They kinda return to their earlier style which, while some people love it, I personally don't find quite as appealing.Moonsorrow Jumalten aika4.5xSPONGEXCOREx The Panty Raid5.0Great job, buddy...

This is a good album. Nothing stands out that much though. Written by Enslaved?s Ivar Bj�rnson
and Einar Selvik of Wardruna, for the 200th anniversary of the Norwegian Constitution.Sorcier Des Glaces North4.0Ocean Wisdom Chaos 93'4.0Graveland/Nokturnal Mortum The Spirit Never Dies3.0Nokturnal Mortum's side: 4.5rGraveland's side: 2rOverall: 3Sorrow Plagues Sorrow Plagues4.0Eldamar The Force of the Ancient Land3.5Hyperion (SWE) Seraphical Euphony4.0Fuath I3.5Also, what's the deal with so many albums simply being called 'I'?Chthe'ilist Le Dernier Crépuscule4.0Split Prophets Delta Bravo Kilo4.0Nadra Allir vegir til glötunar4.0Nordjevel Nordjevel4.02015 Batushka Litourgiya3.5Yuri Gagarin At The Center Of All Infinity4.0Zgard Totem4.0Excellent release, as per usual. For those familiar with Zgard's sound, this album sees them take a heavier, raw approach with less emphasis on folk/melody (though it's still definitely there), with the vocals taking a more 'howling' approach than before. rFor those unfamiliar with Zgard's sound, become familiar with it.Weeping Birth The Crushed Harmony4.0Holy fuck. 'Meant To Be Wrecked' is literally a rip-fest, I think it just tore my sphincter.Enisum Arpitanian Lands4.0Horrendous Anareta4.5Selvans Lupercalia4.5This is a really, really fucking good album. A more intense folk influenced black metal record.Heimdallr Капище Отцов4.0Gravsang La dine Taarer livet Begrave4.5Tortured vocals, atmospheric guitars and a general, well-executed sound make this an excellent DSBM album.The Arcane Order Cult Of None4.0Dirty Dike Sucking On Prawns In The Moonlight3.5Sivyj Yar Burial Shrouds4.0Iron Maiden The Book of Souls4.0Cruciamentum Charnel Passages4.5Myrkur M2.0Advent Sorrow As All Light Leaves Her4.5I just want to say that I've not heard their EP. But the tags suggest this band is symphonic
black metal. No way. Don't believe the tags. A little bit of piano occasionally, but other
than that this is quite simply an excellent DSBM effort. I would class this genre as DSBM
definitely - very accessible for the genre. The vocals are genuinely monolothic in effect.
It takes a lot for a scream to affect me in BM, but some of the moments that appear on this
album are... genuinely painstaking. You can feel the emotion coursing through. Massively
surprised, very good album.
EDIT: Repeated listens confirm this to be, in my opinion, a solid 4.5. Really, really killer
album.Black Fast Terms of Surrender3.5If this band didn't have such a consistently average vocalist, they could be serious challengers in the scene.Cattle Decapitation The Anthropocene Extinction4.0Tempel (USA-AZ) The Moon Lit Our Path4.0Midnight Odyssey Shards of Silver Fade4.5People know this is out, right? 2 ratings?

The actual album itself is a quality rendition of Sabbath's early classics, with just enough of the band's unique interpretations of each song to make each interesting and different while maintaining the original sound.

Unfortunately, the middle track, Endormintroeum (or whatever) is a largely worthless atmospheric track that is cool in the context of the album but way too long.Brothers of the Stone Brothers of the Stone4.02012 Xanthochroid Blessed He With Boils4.0Fliptrix The Road to the Interdimensional Piff Highway4.0Chapel of Disease Summoning Black Gods3.5Elderwind The Magic of Nature4.0Vinnie Paz God of the Serengeti3.0Anaal Nathrakh Vanitas4.0Kawir Isotheos4.0Enslaved RIITIIR4.5Oak Pantheon From a Whisper4.0Brother Ali Mourning In America Dreaming In Color4.0KOAN Sound The Adventures of Mr. Fox4.0Katatonia Dead End Kings4.0The Faceless Autotheism3.5Autotheist Movements p.1-3 are damn good but the rest of the album is unremarkable. Not bad, just not great.Visigoth Final Spell4.0Just a disclaimer, I know very little of this band... I am just giving them a rating because they don't have one at the moment and they deserve one. Creature of Desire is a quality song and they've got a couple more quality songs but I've not heard anything else.rThe lead singer is also the guy who does everything in Gallowbraid!

And it's all while running a record label and pulling live performance after performance out of his ass.rI cannot stress just how immaculately produced this album is, and Fliptrix does an incredible job laying down his thoughts over it. He, and the rest of his High Focus crew (check out The Four Owls) really are paving the way for UK hip hop at the moment.rEvery. Single. Track. Is. Incredible - that is something I NEVER get to say after listening to an album, let alone one with 16 tracks.rDo me a favour, do Fliptrix a favour, and most importantly do yourself a favour by checking this album out. You will not regret it.Datkid Home By 84.5It's been 6 years, but Datkid is finally getting the recognition he deserves. There are few UK rappers that can match his technique, flow or rhymes. Standout tracks include 'Home By 8' / 'Natural Born Killaz' / 'Bang' / '6-Rizla Spliff', and 'Family Fortunez'. You'd be hard-pressed to find better storytelling, even by someone like Nas, in the latter recommendation.Alcest Les Voyages De L'Âme4.0Horrendous The Chills4.0Omega Centauri Universum Infinitum4.0Upped to a 4.

This is an MC with all the boxes ticked for talent: lyricism, flow and rhyme-scheme. rBeautifully crafted musically, incredibly powerful message delivered even more successfully. Albums with this level of significance occur every decade or so. Listen to it and try to internalise the strife that Lowkey is imploring you to see. It's there, and he put his Blood, Sweat and Tears into helping you see it.Split Prophets Scribbled Thoughts5.0This IS, almost indisputably, a classic in the UKHH scene. This is SP before they opened the floodgates and allowed some unfortunately underwhelming rappers to their ranks. Res and Upfront's lyrics and flows are unparalleled in this. This is real music, for real people! Production top notch as well.

First 15 minutes are so are really good quality blackened thrash and the rest is basically a slower paced, kind of doom-ish outro riff - the outro is good but while it doesn't stand up to the first half of the CD it does add atmosphere well.Alda Tahoma4.5Niggas With Guitars Ethnic Frenzy2.0Too many blacks. Kroda Schwarzpfad3.0A shame, really... Musically really good but the vocals just get on my nerves. i love Kroda's old vocalist and this guy simply doesn't do it for me, unfortunately.Leaf Dog From A Scarecrow's Perspective4.52010 Hamferd Vilst er Síðsta Fet4.5Hideous Miscreation Delusions Of Grandeur EP4.0Kanye West My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy4.5Great album but slightly let down, in my opinion, by an excessive amount of singing and not enough rap, as well as some fucking AWFUL track features who provide nothing but lazy and talentless lyrics. Luckily, this doesn't take too much away from what is, overall, a quality album.The Meads of Asphodel The Murder Of Jesus The Jew4.5Devlin Bud, Sweat and Beers4.0Celph Titled and Buckwild Nineteen Ninety Now4.5Ghost (SWE) Opus Eponymous3.5Superb album, saw a load of people with Ghost shirts at Bloodstock 2012 so thought I'd check them out - FUCKING INSANE - Awesome dark feel throughout the whole album, even when the lyrics aren't about Hungarian Countesses who kidnap, torture and murder hundreds of people and then bathe in their blood. The musical element is also top class, instruments are used well and coalesce to make an impressive overall sound.rEach song has its own particular merits.rThe ONE thing I didn't like so much about this album was the closing track, Genesis. Not the most entertaining listen, but not awful. Also, why would genesis, meaning beginning, be at the end? I'm babbling, I know, but I would strongly recommend this album to any heavy metal fan or anyone who likes their SatanEnslaved Axioma Ethica Odini5.0Opeth In Live Concert at the Royal Albert Hall4.5Gallowbraid Ashen Eidolon3.5K-Rino Annihilation of the Evil Machine5.0Pathfinder Beyond the Space, Beyond the Time4.0Avenged Sevenfold Nightmare3.5Klashnekoff Back To The Sagas3.5A man who left us abruptly in his prime. It's not quite how we remember him, but we welcome him back with open arms nonetheless.And Hell Followed With Proprioception4.0Vinnie Paz Season of the Assassin3.5Standard Vinnie Paz. A lot of filler, but it's not particularly bad filler - it's just not
anything near close to what he can actually do. A lot of grammatical shortcuts to make the
flow cleaner, but that's part of his style these days.
He does have some sick bars though, still.

had to create their page, so I am just doing typing this now because it's telling me to rate
it.rSeriously. ROBOTOTRON - BEST LIVE PERFORMANCE OF A SONG EVER.
*EXOSKELETITANIUM!!!*rFirst impressions of this album are very good, kinda hard to describe
the genre, but I guess I would liken it to kind of blackened thrash (with a humorous side)
here is their hilarious video for the song ROBOTOTRON on youtube
Another good song is Blacken The Everything.rI know this isn't a great description, but as I
said, I haven't heard the album enough to give it a proper explanation.

Just a superb album from an absolutely excellent band.rMasta Ace Disposable Arts4.5Tenacious D Tenacious D4.0Immortal Technique Revolutionary Volume 14.5Converge Jane Doe3.5System of a Down Toxicity5.07L & Esoteric Soul Purpose5.0Absu Tara4.0Opeth Blackwater Park4.5One of my favorite albums of all time, every song is perfect in it's own right.

Total departure from the epic, soaring melodic stylings of the previous 2 albums, but an interesting album that, in all honesty, was executed pretty well in terms of what I assume they were going for. That saxophone in 'In the Mood' is done incredibly well, as are most of the intros/outros to songs. They just never "get going" as the prior albums did.rStrongest songs here are 'In the Mood' and 'Deep Inside Your Heart', with the latter being just as good as anything on the 2 classics.r1990 Megadeth Rust in Peace5.0Judas Priest Painkiller5.0Cancer To the Gory End4.01989 Candlemass Tales of Creation4.0King Diamond Conspiracy5.0Toxik Think This5.01988 Candlemass Ancient Dreams4.5King Diamond ''Them''4.5Iron Maiden Seventh Son of a Seventh Son5.0Muslimgauze The Rape Of Palestine4.0Crimson Glory Transcendence 5.01987 Candlemass Nightfall4.5King Diamond Abigail5.0Tankard Chemical Invasion4.0Toxik World Circus4.0Anthrax Among the Living5.0Manilla Road Mystification4.51986 Iron Maiden Somewhere in Time5.0Candlemass Epicus Doomicus Metallicus5.0King Diamond Fatal Portrait4.0Crimson Glory Crimson Glory4.0Satan's Host Metal from Hell4.51985 Anthrax Spreading the Disease5.01984 Iron Maiden Powerslave4.5Jag Panzer Ample Destruction5.0HEAVY METAL CLASSIC RIGHT HERE!rGET IT WHILE IT'S STILL HOT!!!!Scorpions Love At First Sting4.0Tokyo Blade Night of the Blade3.5Flux of Pink Indians The Fucking Cunts Treat Us Like Pricks4.51983 Slayer Show No Mercy4.0Iron Maiden Piece of Mind4.0Ashbury Endless Skies4.5Manilla Road Crystal Logic5.01982 Judas Priest Screaming for Vengeance4.5Iron Maiden The Number of the Beast4.5Diamanda Galas The Litanies of Satan4.51981 Black Sabbath Mob Rules4.0Rush Moving Pictures5.0Samson Shock Tactics3.51980 Black Sabbath Heaven and Hell4.51978 Rainbow Long Live Rock 'n' Roll4.51976 Rainbow Rising4.5Rush 21125.0Judas Priest Sad Wings of Destiny5.01975 Rush Caress of Steel4.0Rainbow Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow4.0Black Sabbath Sabotage5.01974 King Crimson Red4.51973 Black Sabbath Sabbath Bloody Sabbath4.5Genesis Selling England by the Pound4.51972 Black Sabbath Vol. 44.5Cymande Cymande4.51971 Black Sabbath Master of Reality4.01970 Vashti Bunyan Just Another Diamond Day4.5Black Sabbath Paranoid4.0Black Sabbath Black Sabbath4.51969 King Crimson In the Court of the Crimson King5.01967 Small Faces There Are But Four Small Faces4.5The 13th Floor Elevators Easter Everywhere4.0Unknown Klashnekoff Focus Mode4.0
