Don Mancuso | No Strings Attached

by Alissa Ordabai Staff Writer – A four-decade career has seen the East Coast guitar vet Don Mancuso lend his A-grade chops to a plethora of rock luminaries – from Lou Gramm (who in mid-70s has been Mancuso’s bandmate in Back Sheep before defecting to Foreigner), to most recently the [...]

Disturbed | The Lost Children

by Mark Allen Staff Writer – Give Disturbed credit for catering to their fans. Although announcing they are on hiatus at least through 2012, the band has released this collection of b-sides and rarities to tide over their loyal followers who were lamenting the (temporary?) loss of one of [...]

SuperHeavy | SuperHeavy

by Alissa Ordabai Staff Writer – Nothing unites this assortment of loosely compiled tunes more than the coating of blasé superficiality the band gives to each style it engages in – from formulaic ballads and mechanistic reggae workouts to world music smothered in pop gloss. Few optimists [...]

Kilmara | Don’t Fear the Wolf

by John Kindred Staff Writer – Kilmara is a Spanish metal band that was formed in 2003. Originally named Jadde, the group’s original compositions were written in their native language. Kilmara soon added German vocalist Christian Wolfgang to its ranks and moved away from performing [...]

Kittie | I’ve Failed You

by Cynthia Jo Staff Writer – Can anyone remember the band Kittie past 1999s Spit and 2001s Oracle? If the answer is no, shockingly they’re still around proving that angry riot girl nu-metal is not worth production time. Kittie’s sixth studio album, I’ve Failed You makes its way in line [...]

Vangough | Kingdom Of Ruin

by Joe Mis Staff Writer – Vangough’s brand of metal music is as impressionistic as the art of the master painter who inspired their name. The Oklahoma City based quartet blends elements of progressive metal and straight up guitar rock with touches of gothic metal to come up with a rather [...]

Eldritch | Gaia’s Legacy

by Justin Gaines Staff Writer – Long-running Italian progressive power metal band Eldritch is back after a four-year absence with Gaia’s Legacy, their eighth studio album. Eldritch has never been a band to shy away from social issues, and Gaia’s Legacy continues that trend. The album is a [...]

Skinny Puppy | hanDover

by Trevor Portz Staff Writer – With the 20th anniversary of industrial’s brief stint with mainstream acceptability just around the corner, it’s nice to see one of the most important bands from the genre still clanking noisily along. Having dabbled in everything from dark pop to near [...]

Daylight Dies | Idle

by Justin Gaines Staff Writer – Before they became one of the mainstays of the American doom/death scene, North Carolina-based Daylight Dies made their debut on then fledgling label Tribunal Records with the 2000 EP Idle. It may have been the band’s excellent releases on Relapse and [...]

Charred Walls of the Damned | Cold Wind on Timeless Days

by Justin Gaines Staff Writer – Cold Winds on Timeless Days is the second album from Charred Walls of the Damned, the super-group (of sorts) featuring drummer Richard Christy (ex-Death, ex-Iced Earth), bassist Steve DiGiorgio (ex-Death, ex-Control Denied), guitarist/producer Jason Suecof and [...]
