    February’s Napalm Death cover story opens with three full paragraphs pertaining to Barney Greenway’s undergarments. No, we haven’t gone full Maxim (although we know you’re still eagerly anticipating the sequel to the Hottest Doodz in Metal). Napalm, after all, are a band who’s most recent album was called Utilitarian, and writer Justin Norton is merely underscoring the point that Greenway is a man of meticulous preparation — packing weeks and sometimes even months in advance for tours — while cohort Shane Embury simply ad-libs his suitcase contents a…

    Originally released in 1998, EXHUMED’s now-classic debut full-length, Gore Metal, was a boundary defying offering of filth-ridden, grinding, over-the-top death-metal. Unrepentantly fast, furious and maniacal, Gore Metal gleamed with a delightful audio repugnance bedecked in blazing riff infiltrations, slasher-film-inspired lyrics and vile cover art. It was the record that made Carcass seem PG-rated by comparison […]

    Mors Principium Est Dawn of the 5th Era AFM Records 05 December 2014 by Pete Long The key to a good melodic death metal album is a multitude of great riffs, teetering right between wild-eyed aggression and impressible catchiness. But the majority of bands in the genre seem to have forgotten this in their quest to push its boundaries. Mors Principium Est’s new album, Dawn of the 5th Era, is an antidote to that. It’s filled to the brim with great riffs. That’s because when Mors Principium Est need new guitarists, they search the whole world for them. Frenchmen Kevin Verlay has replaced…

  • Best Heavy Metal Albums of 2014

    Cody Sparks
    19 Dec 2014 | 8:55 am
    This year in 2014, we have seen a lot of popular bands add to their collection of releases. Insomnium, Epica, Behemoth, and Judas Priest are some of the major bands this year. Usually it seems like there is one genre that controls the year's releases, but this year it seems we had a good mix of Death, Power, Black and Traditional metal albums. Below are my Top Heavy Metal Albums of 2014. Agalloch – The Serpent & The Sphere Genre: Black Metal Released: May 13th read more

Astrakhan – ‘A Tapestry of Scabs and Skin’ (War on Music) Genre: Progressive Sludge Metal The new EP from Astrakhan, A Tapestry of Scabs and Skin includes the two tracks off The Pillarist EP and two new tunes. The four tracks are all crafted with meticulous precision forming an exploratory journey of epic progressive sludge. That they’ve emerged from the Vancouver scene is apparent. They also display shades of Red/Blue-era Baroness and early Mastodon but their…

  • WLM Reviews: Stilverlight – S/T

    Harley
    20 Dec 2014 | 12:00 am
    I typically don’t find Russian Power Metal to be compelling. With the PowerProg release of Stilverlight’s self-titled debut I’ve found a band that’s fresh and promising offering a Heavy/Power/Folk Metal blast. Stilverlight has been in existence for half a decade and have, over that time, developed a Melodic Power Metal style incorporating a number of influences, including Thrash, Folk, Heavy, and Speed Metal resulting in an interesting and special sound. The album is ambitious, to say the least. With a debut that clocks in well over an hour, Stilverlight may have done…
  • Walking Underwater Pt.2- Johnny Wore Black

    The Shepherd

            Just outside Gatlinburg, Tennessee there’s a winding path that descends from mountain top to a picturesque valley named Cades Cove. The deer run free and when the sun sets on the surrounding Smoky Mountains you’d swear the soul of almighty is swirling round, touching you. It is here that I find the majestically satin smooth sound of Johnny Wore Black’s Walking Underwater Pt. 2. When passed this euphoric joint of laid back I accepted due to name recognition. A side project for legendary Megadeth bassist Dave Ellefson, he may have ushered me into this space,…

The group was initially formed not by coincidence but by the urge to fill the gap in today’s modern metal sound. The track brings energy,…
