Netherbird – Monument Black Colossal (Soundpollution/Riot)

Dark, gothic and extremely melodic. This is an album that could have you slashing your wrists whilst bopping around the room.

Extreme, dark, black – all words that are thrown around to describe the sort of sound Swedish Metallers Netherbird are creating, but what about melodic, powerful, melancholic

Hellfueled - Emission of Sins (Black Lodge/Riot)

Metal as Fuck? Never a truer word, mate, never a truer word...
Release Date: 
28 Jan 2010 - 11:30pm

Of course, a band in its sixth year as a recording entity would be expected to have this studio thing down pat, but that still doesn't ready you for the sheer, slick brilliance of Emission of S

Sabaton - Art of War (Soundpollution/Riot)

The Art of War never sounded so good!
Release Date: 
30 May 2008 - 2:30pm

When I very first saw this album I thought to myself, Sabaton ... what kind of name is that?

Switchblade – Self Titled 2009 (Sound Pollution/Riot)

Release Date: 
25 Sep 2009 (All day)

Firenote is the self-titled debut album from this Finnish band with attitude.

Zero Illusions - Enter Eternity (Soundpollution/Riot)

Zero Illusions release their debut album but maybe needed a bit more time to tie up some loose ends.

Having formed in 2004, Enter Eternity is Zero Illusion's first full length release.

Defueld - Defueld (SoundPollution/Riot)

Defueld offer their debut album full of classic heavy metal with a fresh twist that will have you wanting more.

I have a strong belief that the Scandinavian water holds some special ability to bring out the power of metal to the bands that form there. The best thing about these bands is that&n

Bullet – Bite The Bullet (Soundpollution/Riot)

These Swedish metalheads, who have obviously been brought up on a steady diet of AC/DC, Accept and Judas Priest, release an album that reeks of old school rock and more than a few stolen riffs.

From the opening track Pay The Price with its For Those About To Rock riffs and screeching Balls To The Wall feel you’ll think you’ve stumbled onto an unrelea
