February 6, 2018

It’s been said before and oft bears repeating, but supergroups are a dime a dozen nowadays and while most seem to rely more on name recognition from previous work than anything, others opt to branch out and do something truly unique.

Enter Legend of the Seagullmen, a fusion of Hollywood director Jimmy Hayward (Jonah Hex, Horton Hears A Who) with legendary sticksman Danny Carey (Tool) with Dethklok’s Pete Griffin, Mastodon maestro Brent Hinds and a...

Since forming in 1991, Israeli metallers Orphaned Land have gone from strength to strength, peddling their self-labelled “oriental metal”, fusing the more usual sounds of melodeath and power metal with the unique flavours of traditional Israeli instruments and middle Eastern melody.

Twenty-plus years into their career and the band have amassed quite a following thanks to their positive message and ability to unite fans across the spectrum of many...

Arcaeon are newcomers to the UK music scene, forming early in 2017 but already have a niche carved out for themselves aping prog/tech metal and other metal core acts from SikTh to Architects and Northlane and blending them together.

Balance sees them taking their tentative first steps as a band, an EP clocking in around twenty-five minutes containing five songs. The band meld polyrhythms alongside softer (I hesitate to say quiet) passages as well...

Cited as what happens when you get if you infuse So-Cal punk with folk metal and Norse mythology, Frost Giant are to say the least, channeling quite a few different influences. Although the band have been around since 2010, they’ve spent the last eight years honing their craft before releasing first full length The Harlot Star on a largely unsuspecting world. The general consensus before now was that American folk metal generally didn’t live up t...

Symphonic metallers Leaves’ Eyes have had a bit of a rough go of the last couple of years. Given the dismissal of original and founding vocalist Liv Kristine and the all-too-public spat that followed, there was a great deal of consternation amongst fans as to whether the band could bounce back from it better than before or whether it was finally time for them to hang it up.

As ever, the truth lies someplace between the extremes; whilst all members...

Japan’s metal scene hasn’t always been the most well-known outside of breakout stars such as heavyweights Dir en grey and “kawaii” metallers Babymetal. Dig further in, however, and one finds a rich tapestry of bands of all manner of shapes and sizes. Alongside this and quite unlike more well-known Western bands, metal in Japan has also flown the flag for not only female-fronted bands but also an ever-increasing number of all-female bands. Only fo...

End of year lists are always tricky and this year is no exception; 2017 had some standout releases of all shapes and sizes. Some of the best albums i heard this year came from relative newcomers, or bands unafraid to blend genres and try new things. Equally there have been fantastic albums by bands who prefer to revel in the days of bygone glories (looking at you, Savage Messiah) that have still managed to update their source material for the mod...

Sweden’s’ resident occult-obsessed blackened thrashers Witchery is a long and storied one, and I Am Legion marks the seventh entry into the band’s catalogue.

Opening with the incredibly short scene-setter “Legion” (more on that one later), we are quickly thrown into the first full track of the album “True North” which features an intro from what sounds suspiciously like an electric organ. This is swiftly followed by a mid-paced, thrashy stomp and...
