KFAI - Undead
Khlyst - Chaos is My Name album cover


Chaos is My Name, 2006

7.7 / 10

Khlyst, being comprised of James Plotkin (formerly of Khanate and involved in a multitude of other projects) and Runhild Gammelsaeter (formerly of Thorr's Hammer), could easily be expected to produce ...

Botch - Unifying Themes Redux / American Nervoso / We are the Romans (Reissues) album cover


Unifying Themes Redux / American Nervoso / We are the Romans (Reissues), 2006

9.0 / 10

How does one measure the influence and impact of a band on music? Sure, you could look at album sales, which in the case of The Beatles is a corollary ...

Zozobra - Harmonic Tremors album cover


Harmonic Tremors, 2007

7.5 / 10
Multiple Authors

Zozobra is a tantalizing idea for a band. They are a two-piece outfit that is comprised of Cave In member Caleb Scofield and a member of the criminally unnoticed Forensics, ...

Zozobra - Harmonic Tremors album cover


Harmonic Tremors, 2007

8.5 / 10
Multiple Authors

Those frustrated by the fact that Old Man Gloom is nothing more than a studio project that rarely tours can get excited - at least a little bit. Caleb Scofield ...

Jesu - Conqueror album cover


Conqueror, 2007

9.5 / 10

Okay, I am saying it. This just might be my number one album of 2007. Whatever I thought of Jesu prior to this record went completely out the window. Conqueror ...

Clouds - Legendary Demo album cover


Legendary Demo, 2007

7.5 / 10
Multiple Authors

When Cave In went on hiatus, who would have thought that the principal players would all decide to throw down "solo" records? Steve Brodsky had been doing it for a ...

Clouds - Legendary Demo album cover


Legendary Demo, 2007

8.0 / 10
Multiple Authors

It's quite an interesting experience to hear the whole of Cave In broken down into its different parts, in a manner of speaking that is. Since the band has gone ...

Pelican - City of Echoes album cover


City of Echoes, 2007

6.0 / 10

Yeah, the guys in Pelican are busy dudes. City of Echoes is the band's third full-length and seventh record released since 2001. I admire their work ethic. For those of ...

Oxbow - The Narcotic Story album cover


The Narcotic Story, 2007

9.2 / 10

It’s impossible for me to give The Narcotic Story a fair review. As the liner notes state: “This does not mark the actual conclusion of THE NARCOTIC STORY but merely ...

Coalesce - There is Nothing New Under the Sun (Reissue) album cover


There is Nothing New Under the Sun (Reissue), 2007

8.1 / 10

Yes, Hydra Head has been pumping out the reissues of late (look to Botch having American Nervoso and We are the Romans re-released in super updated formats just recently and ...

Pet Genius - Pet Genius album cover

Pet Genius

Pet Genius, 2007

8.0 / 10

Stephen Brodsky is a shape-shifter. Throughout his musical career, the oftentimes-enigmatic frontman has been the main songwriting force behind numerous projects of all realms of music. He’s tackled everything from ...

Xasthur - Defective Epitaph album cover


Defective Epitaph, 2007

7.0 / 10
200 Words Or Less

One-man black metal projects certainly have become overabundant in the past couple of years. I’m not exactly sure what brought on their increased presence in music, but nevertheless, their popularity ...

Tusk - The Resisting Dreamer album cover


The Resisting Dreamer, 2007

7.7 / 10

Tusk has long been a side project of the more and more highly esteemed band Pelican, but is much heavier and includes vocals at times. On The Resisting Dreamer, the ...

The Huguenots - Discography album cover

The Huguenots

Discography, 2007

7.0 / 10

The Huguenots were a band that existed at some point during the late 1990’s, or at least that is what I can conclude based on the limited information available on ...

Hayaino Daisuki - Headbanger's Karaoke Club Dangerous Fire album cover

Hayaino Daisuki

Headbanger's Karaoke Club Dangerous Fire, 2008

7.1 / 10

Ah, the long awaited return - at least among Discordance Axis fans - of Jon Chang the vocalist of the regrettably extinct grind outfit Discordance Axis. Hayaino Daisuki is one ...

Torche - Meanderthal album cover


Meanderthal, 2008

7.8 / 10

By now, most people that care enough to know that Torche's point of origination begins with the fall of Steve Brooks' former band, Floor. Torche has certainly done enough differently ...

Cavity - Laid Insignificant (Reissue) album cover


Laid Insignificant (Reissue), 2008

7.8 / 10

Cavity is another one of those criminally underrated bands that toiled for years in obscurity while a select few found that the group and their down tuned Sabbath-influenced mayhem was ...

Pyramids - Pyramids album cover


Pyramids, 2008

7.2 / 10

So Pyramids is one of a slew of new bands making their debuts with Hydra Head recently. However, this outfit seems to have either a much lower profile than the ...
