2017: Most Notable and Memorable

There has been a lot of memorable and noteworthy albums I’ve reviewed this year – I kid you not, sometimes we get as many as five shoved in our faces each week. And while I do want to review every single one that comes my way, I’m really just one person taking the time to thoroughly hear and describe a release as fairly and honestly as I would expect my own band’s album to be. Now, to avoid being here all day, I’m going to list one album from each common genre that stood out for me personally. Everyone is welcome to agree or disagree.

Review: Dimman – Guide My Fury

When it comes to melodic death metal, it has been a dry well in many parts of the world. This year however, it would seem that Finland is one of few reserves still rich with originality and lush with the fruit of flawless harmonies and unrelenting riffs.

Review: Trinity Site – After The Sun

From Germany, Trinity Site delivers to us a melodic yet futuristic form of death metal unlike any other melo-death act today. This is a band that could very well be among the ranks of bands like Dark Tranquility, In Flames, and Carcass. So melodic death metal, what makes this one so special? A listener might ask.

Review: Voice of Ruin – Purge and Purify

Having listened to the album many times, I see nothing but potential in the band’s future.

Review: Unleash The Archers – Apex

Canadian power-metallers Unleash The Archers will be releasing “Apex” on the 2nd of June, under their long-running label Napalm Records. They had first won me over with their second album Demons of The AstroWaste (2011) – I felt it was one of the few albums I enjoyed every single song on, so one can imagine how pleased I was to have the privilege to listen to their fourth installment.
