Casualties Of Cool: Casualties of cool This is described as eerie Johnny Cash music, according to Devin the sincerest and happiest he’s been on record in a while; having known to be so invested in his albums that his life has been derailed as a result and such words should not be taken lightly.

Crowbar: Symmetry in black Sadly, although Crowbar have had some questionable tracks on some albums, most of which situated on “Sever the Wicked Hand”, the band’s lack of anything concrete in many years comes to fruition plainly on “Symmetry in Black”, an album with very few saving graces – the opening of “The Taste of Dying” and a meatier production than the last record and we’re done here.

Black Label Society: Catacombs of the black vatican Described as a mix of everything to date, Zakk has been very open of his pride for this album; here you’ll find the usual classic rock mixed with heavy metal, a Southern tinge like Corrosion of Conformity but otherwise Lynyrd Skynrd, Sabbath, power ballads and soaring choruses.

Mastodon: Once more 'round the sun With the exception of the chorus, “Asleep in the Deep” is a write-off, and “Halloween” is an overdrawn jam on a lazy theme; “Aunt Lisa” is a lot of the same riff before a crowd-pleasing end that sounds like a failed variation of the “Blood and Thunder” opening, combined with parodying school-chants that sound like The Melvins’ wackiness and the tongue-in-cheek of Faith No More’s “Be Aggressive”, the overall effect is unsettling, a little infuriating.

Aborted: The necrotic manifesto I cannot emphasize the quality of the musicianship enough, the guitars and the drums, and then Svencho has always been a hero of mine ever since I heard him on “Goremageddon”.

Whitechapel: Our endless war Lacking in progression, in substance, and most importantly in potential, Whitechapel’s 2014 release prophesies a dismal future for the band’s music. I hope they have it in them to prove me wrong.

Septicflesh: Titan Septicflesh’s efforts on “Titan” successfully fuse the perceived chaos of death metal with the perceived beauty of instrumental orchestration, and in doing so, show a complex understanding of either component.

Tombs: Savage gold Lyrically they are spiritual, a little dark and morbid, overall quite novice at expressing their philosophies on life, time and death, making the large, coarse music clash some with clumsy vocals that are actually quite understandable despite the caveman, Neurosis-style bellows.

Nero di Marte: Nero di marte Judging from the quality of what is on offer here the equipment stolen must have been worth a few bob as they say, because Nero Di Marte are professional to say the least, they don’t miss a trick, their music dense, intense, pinesse, eclectic and clean, and unless we are talking in-studio touch-ups (which I very much doubt), we have faultless musicianship and the high-grade instruments that go with it.
