Armored Saint – the unluckiest band in the history of metal?

Valkyrja - Contamination (Metal Blade/Riot)

They may not be spectacularly well known in the black metal scene, but this album could be set to change things for Valkyrja.

I cannot tell a lie: this album scared me.

Aeternam - Disciples Of The Unseen (Metal Blade/Riot)

This is a decent debut from Canada's latest death metal export, but enough with the sodding cymbals.

Eryn Non Dae - Hydra Lernaia (Metal Blade/Riot)

What do you get if you put Neurosis on stage with an epileptic and a cheese eating surrender monkey? No, it's not a sick, tasteless joke... it's Eryn Non Dae! Read on mes amis...


Razor of Occam - Homage to Martyrs (Metal Blade/Riot)

Razor Of Occam's debut album is furious cheese saturation for those trying times.
