Suicidal Tendencies - World Gone Mad

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

SUICIDAL TENDENCIES has been an incredibly resilient band which has been producing great music that has both opinion and attitude. And by this, I’m saying that if you don’t check the lyrics the charismatic writer Mike Muir is putting on paper, then you’re probably missing half of the fun (the other half involves intense headbanging/moshing/circle-pitting). The last time SUICIDAL TENDENCIES put out an album was with “13” which was a killer one and a perfect occasion to get the band on the road. Still, it was not quite clear whether the band would get back on the tour / album-release cycle and, in fact, interviewing Mike kind of hinted that this could had been the last tour of duty. This is where the beauty of “World Gone Mad” lies; obviously SUICIDAL TENDENCIES got inspired and energized by all the touring around the world, so with a refreshed lineup, got in the studio and put together an explosive set of songs that will make your head spin and - hopefully - your mind think. Are you ready?

As autumn is approaching with shy steps hiding behind the unseasonable high temperatures, laid-back and shorter-in-light nights, there is no better way to welcome nature’s mourning season other than a good, UK-based Black Metal record. Manchester’s WINTERFYLLETH have taken care of this with their fifth full length album, titled “The Dark Hereafter”, so fill your glass with your favorite poison, dim the lights and dive headfirst into WINTERFYLLETH’s dark beauty...

Black Magic Fools - Soul Collector

I can't say that Folk Metal is my favorite genre but as long as music is performed from the heart and is well-played, then it gets easier to take in and appreciate. And knowing that Metal Revelation always pushes quality bands / records, I knew that I had to give BLACK MAGIC FOOLS’ debut “Soul Collector” the time needed to settle. It turned out to be pretty easy actually since SKYCLAD can be mentioned as one of the influences. Ok, BLACK MAGIC FOOLS perhaps touches upon the Swedish folklore when compared to the English likes, but at least the heavy riffs are there as well as the creative and inventive melodies. And it is a good thing for me that the base here is Heavy Metal.

Altar Of Oblivion - Barren Grounds

I was really waiting for this one; I mean, I’m quite fond of Denmark’s ALTAR OF OBLIVION, and not just because both of their previous full lengths stayed in my iPod for days (remember, we live in a digital world), but mainly because I love the epic side of this genre, along of course with my beloved COUNT RAVEN, ATLANTEAN KODEX, PROCESSION and SOLSTICE who to my ears belong to the ‘last of the Mohicans’ of this category, still producing this type of Doom. So, almost four years after their sophomore Grand Gesture Of Defiance”, ALTAR OF OBLIVION are back in discography with their EP release, titled “Barren Grounds”.
