Review: Frail Grounds – The Fields of Trauma

frail groundsFrail Grounds is a melodic death metal band from Oslo, Norway. They have a bi-polar mentality when it comes to their song writing as they attack the prog and melodic death senses. Also, the bands features some good ‘death’ growling as well as traditional metal singing. ‘The Fields of Trauma’ is a unique listen and it’s definitely worthy of a try.

Review: NUKLEAR FROST – Subjugation

nuklear frost logoRiddled with darkness, raw power and a fury that was in the hearts of the black metal barbarians that spawned in the 90′s is ever so present within the debut album from Nuklear Frost. An opening scream of “DIIEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” pretty much sets the tone on the second track after a bleak introduction. ‘Subjugation’ is without a doubt a no holds barred, no gimmicks, just straight to the point, kick your teeth in black metal. You are not ready.

Let’s Listen To New Music From THE AGONIST & ARCH ENEMY, Then Judge It, Shall We?

Vicky PsarakisAs you’ve heard from this past week, Angela Gossow said “SEE YA!” to being a front woman for Arch Enemy and to ’enter a different phase in my life, be with my family and pursue other interests.’ My wife pointed out a good theory: She had a baby and just wants to be home with the child. I think that is a good reason to quit a band. Yet, even with that said, she will still manage the band and possibly still be a ‘voice’ for them in a PR sense, even though The Agonist’s Alissa White-Gluz has been chosen to take the spot and then part ways with her band. Whoa, so who took Alissa’s spot? A young lady named Vicky Psarakis. Now that the rosters have changed, let’s listen to what these new bands sound like. Starting with The Agonist.

I DECLARE WAR Prepares The ‘Noose’ For You

16png_3320084_11108328One disgustingly great deathcore band that I thoroughly enjoy every time they release a new album is the fierce sounds of I DECLARE WAR. The anger, the hunger, the violence, the energy….it’s captivating and it’s addicting. I Declare War bring it every single time and this time is no different. I’m happy to report that this new jam is still as pissed off as every thing else they have ever written.
