Review: Narthraal – Screaming From The Grave

Take a step back in time, to the turning point where thrash metal had slowly evolved into death metal, celebrating a tradition composed of a formidable blend of tasty guitar riffs and a punk beat to keep the heads banging.

Review: Dark Matter Secret – Perfect World Creation

Dark Matter Secret is an instrumental three piece that will be releasing their album ‘Perfect World Creation’ on 2nd of June. Now, the term instrumental metal feels like just a bit of an understatement with this band, because yes, there are no vocals, but we cannot stress enough as to just how monstrously technical these guys are. Though they are aimed at fans of technical death metal bands such as The Faceless, Obscura, and Necrophagist, they make those band’s songs sound easy when you go back to them. In general, tech bands serve listeners on a ‘take it or leave it’ basis, and regardless of the opinion one may have of this genre, it is important that listeners speak of the band’s musicianship and playing abilities either in a respectful manner, or not at all.

Review: Within The Ruins – Halfway Human

Within The Ruins is a progressive deathcore band from Westfield, Massachusetts. It is safe to say that they have just released their best album yet. While instrumentally proficient as always, the band has headed in a new direction to include clean back-up singing and a very all-round melodic approach that may very well make Halfway Human the album to revolutionize the genre. Now you will need to forgive me in advance for using the term Nintendo FX so often as they are in fact used a lot, and there are several ways to get that sound happening, so I’m not going to get too nerdy, I’m just going to keep it simple.
