    A behemoth is something gigantic. The word also pertains to a hippo (a gigantic creature) being described in the bible. Both of these usages can be applied to Poland's black/death creation of the same name. Their music is large and lyrically looks to the Bible's antagonist, Lucifer, for inspiration.

  • Sucker For Punishment: Dying, Screaming

    Adrien Begrand
    23 Apr 2014 | 6:30 am
    Ever since I saw them play twice at Roadburn 2013, I’ve been spouting a lot of praise about power trio Satan’s Satyrs, whose idiosyncratic blend of proto-metal and Nuggets-era garage rock scratches an indescribable itch for yours truly. Equal parts boogie, psychedelia, and cheeseball horror, it’s ferocious, catchy, and enormously fun. Sure, it’s all reminiscent of when The Mooney Suzuki and The Warlocks were attracting a lot of press more than a dozen years ago for their own garage rock revival shtick, but Satan’s Satyrs bring swagger, darkness, and heaviness, and combined with…
  • STREAMING: Aurvandil’s “Thrones”

    Jeff Treppel

    Aurvandil play sick folk-influenced black metal. You can listen to our debut of their second screed to the darkness below, and in the meantime, here’s the man himself to explain what’s going on. What’s your writing process like? There are a lot of intricate layers going on in the music and that must be complicated to compose. AURVANDIL is rather simple, 4/4 riff-based music with more or less subtle developments and the occasional leads.

    After an extended layoff Justin Trosper of the late, much-mourned noisy post-hardcore heroes Unwound has returned with an excellent infectious-if-still-decidedly-off-kilter outfit of musical subversion, Survival Knife. Our Deci-antennae really started vibrating, however, when Trosper cited Enslaved and Opeth, among other extreme metallers, as influences for his new venture in a great interview over at Stereo Subversion, and, thus, the decision was made to hit the man up for a Top Five list. He sent along instead was eight selections — a one-through-five plus three sixth place finishers.

Formed by guys originally associated with the black metal scene, but are now fully entrenched in the rigors of thrash, Nocturnal Breed know exactly what they’re doing on new album, Napalm Nights, the group’s first in almost a decade. Horns up and high tops on to S. A. Destroyer (aka Kenneth Svartalv Skibrek Halvorsen) and his band of ‘Breeders! It’s been seven years since Fields of Rot.

    Well, it’s 2014 and the 8 year anniversary of this website has come and gone. Unfortunately, the last 2 or 3 years haven’t been that exciting at Heavy Metal Addiction.com because I just haven’t felt like writing or posting.

  • BRAINSTORM - Firesoul

    10 Apr 2014 | 2:07 pm
    Brainstorm strike back with their latest opus, their tenth so far, and an album that will please all their fans. First of all let me admit that the vocals of Andy B. Franck is one of my favorite singers of the genre. Sure he is dominating the whole album, but he is doing it in a way that no one will complain, since this guy has one of the most distinctive and gifted vocals in the scene. Following their previous journey the band is playing music that sounds closer to their early 00 era, but in a more modern approach. Once again the vocals are superb, fitting perfectly with the mood of the…
  • MAYAN - Antagonize

    2 Apr 2014 | 2:08 pm
    Having creating some havoc with their debut release back in 2011, the Dutch Death Metal crew is back with an album that will try to raise the standards of their music to a new level. The band continues the same high quality mixture of Death Metal and Symphonic Power Metal orchestrations, with some improvements and additions. First of all, the music is moving on the same top class level, complex and intriguing, constantly changing forms and shapes, but always interesting and groovy. Songs are well written, and have no less good moments, and although sharing some common elements, each one has…

    This album was a stream of fresh air coming out from our speakersPower Symphonic Metal from Italy ...mature, technical and catchy compositions and influences unprecedented for the genre: Spaghetti Western touches reminiscent of Ennio Morricone and Luis Bacalov color the whole thing with originality.  Without musical chatter and mostly without fillers, full of pleasant surprises and twists "Nineteen" is an album that will keep your interest from the first to the last second.Rating: 5/5

  • WLM Reviews: Arkona – Yav

    Harley
    23 Apr 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Harley’s Metal Brother Fred returns with a guest review of his favorite Russian Folk Metal Band, Arkona! Yav translated with Google Translate means future. If this is what the future is for Arkona, and you currently a fan of Arkona and their past albums, you will not be disappointed with Yav. Yav is what I have come to expect from Arkona. I had the opportunity to see them live for Paganfest 2012. For me, they were the stars of the show next to the towering Turisas. They were a beautiful band with a wonderful front woman. Masha can really belt out the vocals. Onto to album review. I…

    From all the stories (mainly told by Gene himself) you have to think the Demon might actually have earned this nickname. Thousands of women have passed through his doors, but in the end the poor bastard was tamed by a Playboy Bunny. Wait a minute… poor bastard my ass! Anyway; picture some confetti, fire, and a massive tongued demon being lifted to the rafters as he fills your soul with one of my favorite KISS tracks. Martell

    Hails metalheads! My name is Fang VonWrathenstein, vocalist for the unsigned band Lords of the Trident (http://www.LordsOfTheTrident.com). Every month or so, I’ll be handing out my sage advice to other unsigned bands on how to take their band from the garage to the next level. I’m no industry insider, but I’ve been around the block a few times. Have an idea for a topic, or fervently disagree with something I write? Email me at LordsOfTheTrident@gmail.com. There are some who say that a band is only as good as it’s best song. I’m not too sure about that old adage, but it is easy to…

    The tag “progressive” is assigned loosely today, with every band that features poly-rhythms or non standard time stamps hailed as innovators. However, being “progressive” doesn’t have to necessarily lie in the complexity of your music or a wide swerve off accepted musical norms. It should instead be placed in changing the genre you work in by introducing new elements or interpreting existing norms anew. This is the core idea behind Mirrors for a PrinceWings Denied strive to graft onto a metalcore theme new ideas and structures. However, is this creation…

    Arjen Anthony Lucassen, best known for his project Ayreon, is a name that can bring a smile to many a face. The man is an exquisite producer, having worked with some of the biggest names in the industry. He has the ability to truly lead an artist to transcend his limitations. His modern classic, The Human Equation, turns ten this year and is still one of the finest creations of modern progressive metal. And so, every release by Arjen is highly anticipated, especially when other world class names are involved. Today, it was announced announced that his next album will be a concept album with…
  • Suicide Silence Announce New Album, You Can’t Stop Me

    The past two years for Suicide Silence have been undeniably tough. After losing frontman and founding member Mitch Lucker to a fatal motorcycle accident, it’s easy to assume the group was on the brink of disbandment. However, the group’s strength and resilience has shown, picking up good friend All Shall Perish vocalist Eddie Hermida to carry on the legacy in Mitch’s memory. It’s no secret that the group have been hard at work on a new album, but now some substantial movement is starting to take place as the group announces that the next record will be aptly titled You…

If you can get past the eerie gospel vibes (yes gospel — Wovenhand mastermind David Eugene Edwards is devoutly religious) and the country, western, and folk influence, then you’re in…
