The Return Of Tomorrow

For fans of stoner rock, FU MANCHU have been a guaranteed good time for the last 30 years. Many bands have come and gone during that time, and not one of them has bettered the riff-focused formula that the Californians perfected early on and that they have been propagating with great enthusiasm ever...

Plays Metallica Vol. 2

Everything comes back around eventually. When APOCALYPTICA first caught the metal world's ears, it was in their earliest incarnation as a METALLICA covers band. Released in 1996, "Plays Metallica by Four Cellos" was so convincing, and so much fun, that it almost seemed a shame that the Finnish virtu...

Challenge The Wind

If first impressions were any guide, one could assume that HIGH DESERT QUEEN were a classic, straight-ahead stoner rock band. "Palm Reader" begins with an unapologetic blast of sun-scorched amplifier abuse. "Ancient Aliens" is a ferocious and authoritative way to say hello, and with all their requir...

Charismatic Leaders

Powerful, melodic and pointedly experimental, WHEEL have steadily become one of the most reliably original bands in the post-djent, prog metal world. Many bands have followed in the wake of PERIPHERY, TESSERACT, KARNIVOOL and other pioneering forces in heavy music, but few have found such a unique n...

The Gods Below

A desire to invoke darkness drives every black metal band, but OSSILEGIUM ooze impenetrable, black horror from every pore. The full-length follow-up to a couple of low-key releases, "The Gods Below" begins with a sustained blast of monochrome violence, immediately setting the tone for an album that...

Untouched By Fire

Heavy metal has traditionally been a refuge for the godless and the despised, and yet religion has still played a huge part. Although the genre has a generally scornful view of organized religion, it has consistently and purposefully borrowed from its iconography, its sense of ritual and, most signi...
