DREAM THEATER's MIKE PORTNOY: Early Recordings Unearthed!

It's no secret that before DREAM THEATER there was MAJESTY. But before MAJESTY, drummer Mike Portnoy (mis)spent some time of his youth recording with S.A. ADAMS.

The Art of War EP

The hardest working men in death metal haven't stopped recording and touring to take a break in at least ten years, yet somehow VADER's output never dips in quality.

This is a masterpiece on par with anything MESHUGGAH or MASTODON have released, that sort of massive, lumbering, seething wall of sound that the listener just can't help but become immersed in. "From Mars to Sirius" is a journey that'll take many...

Those Once Loyal

One of the things reviewers use to fill space when talking about long-running bands is how the new album differs from the band's back catalog. BOLT THROWER bulldoze that path with the subtlety of a howitzer shell — they hit a stride around "Realm of Chaos", in 1989, and they haven't shown too much i...
