It’s completely criminal that Psychotic Waltz slipped under most people’s radar back in the 1990s. Despite being one of the earliest examples of progressive metal, there were numerous factors that meant they never saw the same spotlight that other contemporaries like Fates Warning, Queensryche and Dream Theater saw. Partly this was due to their hometown; San Diego’s heavy music scene back in the 1990s largely consisted of punk bands which catered...

The 2010s were a fantastic decade for heavy music, and the new decade definitely has a lot to live up to if it's going to be anywhere near as good. However, there are plenty of reasons to get excited for what the roaring 20's has to offer for heavy music fans of all shades. Rage Against the Machine have reunited, John Frusciante has rejoined the Red Hot Chili Peppers and new albums will be released from some top tier bands such as Sylosis, Ozzy O...

Sleep Token are one of the most talked about, but at the same time cryptic bands in the UK scene of the past few years. Whoever is behind this project has carefully crafted it so that nobody, not even their own label mates, know who is actually in the band. The outfit perked up a lot of ears with their first two EPs, which featured an unusual blend of down-tuned djent riffs mixed with ambient sections that would sit right at home on a Sigur Ros a...

Coping with the loss of a close friend is a difficult situation for anyone to find themselves in. The death of a band member can make moving forward an extremely difficult task, and this has been evident countless times in the past. Any band that chooses to continue and release music following this should, at the very least, be respected for choosing to cope with the loss of a close friend by using their creative outlet. Few bands, however, did t...

It’s a true rarity that you get to see a band hit their peak 7 albums into their career, let alone find a band hit their seventh album without a single original member left. However, this is exactly what happened when metalcore heavyweights Norma Jean released Polar Similar, an album that was as crushingly heavy as it was painstakingly beautiful, along with an exceptional vocal performance from front man Cory Brandan. In the afterm...

Mother's tomb are a fairly new band from Atlanta, Georgia. The band was formed after founder and guitarist Jason Schwartzwalder moved from Tampa back home to Atlanta. This EP, Absent Not Dead, is their first release since their formation last year, and features four tracks of enjoyable, old school melodic death metal. The EP will satisfy fans of thrash and melodic death metal alike, with tracks here sounding like a nice blend of Gothenburg metal...

Ever since they had a vocalist change, Australian metalcore titans Northlane have faced constant pressure from critics and fans alike to live up to the standard of their first two albums which featured original vocalist Adrian Fitipaldes. The two albums that followed, Node and Mesmer, whilst very competent records, were often considered by fans to be toned-down versions of the band's second album Singularity, and plenty of criticism was thrown in...

Industrial rock and metal was one of the most important styles of heavy music at the end of the 20th century. It was ultimately one of the genres that killed off the glam metal of the 1980s and it rose to huge levels of commercial success in the early 1990s, thanks to groups like Ministry and Nine Inch Nails. It received pretty heavy criticism and backlash from the conservative status quo, but that didn’t stop the genre from flourishing, and...
