As I Lay Dying - Frail Words Collapse album cover

As I Lay Dying

Frail Words Collapse, 2003

7.6 / 10

Combining the hardness of nu metal and the catchiness of pop punk, metalcore has been created. Similar to the way ska died, and everybody moved to the pop punk, perhaps ...

The Black Dahlia Murder - Unhallowed album cover

The Black Dahlia Murder

Unhallowed, 2003

8.4 / 10

There seems to be a horrible trend sweeping the lands of America like The Plague. Kids everywhere are going to salons to get their hair done, wearing silly white belts, ...

The Red Chord - Clients album cover

The Red Chord

Clients, 2005

8.1 / 10

Since the release of 2002's Fused Together In Revolving Doors, The Red Chord has slowly but surely become one of the most popular and respected bands throughout the hardcore/metal scene. ...

The Black Dahlia Murder - Miasma album cover

The Black Dahlia Murder

Miasma, 2005

8.0 / 10

I spent a good year learning the guitar arrangements, melodies, and riffs of The Black Dahlia Murder's Metal Blade Records debut, Unhallowed. It was certainly a fun, morbid, and visceral ...

Cannibal Corpse - Kill album cover

Cannibal Corpse

Kill, 2006

6.5 / 10

I initially prefixed the heading of this review as "Neil vs. Cannibal Corpse"; such was my preemptive assumption that I would hate Kill. I set myself ready for war. God ...

Angel Blake - Angel Blake album cover

Angel Blake

Angel Blake, 2006

5.0 / 10

The Crown was a good band; Angel Blake, not so much. Guitarist Marko Tervonen's decision to record a solo album seemed like an interesting move at the time. Writing all ...

From a Second Story Window - Delenda album cover

From a Second Story Window

Delenda, 2006

4.8 / 10

Though never officially diagnosed, I am almost certain that I suffer from some form of Attention Deficit Disorder. Apparently, only 4 to 6 percent of all Americans actually have ADD. ...

Cattle Decapitation - Karma. Bloody. Karma album cover

Cattle Decapitation

Karma. Bloody. Karma, 2006

8.8 / 10

Well what can you say about a group like Cattle Decapitation? First and foremost…they're not emo. Secondly, they have a new album out called Karma. Bloody. Karma, and thirdly…it's one ...

Cataract - Kingdom album cover


Kingdom, 2006

5.0 / 10

Heavy metal and I have been struggling through a rocky love affair since I was thirteen years old. Aside from a few exceptions, metal in the 21st century has been ...

Goatwhore - A Haunting Curse album cover


A Haunting Curse, 2006

6.5 / 10

This album is a devastating wake up call if you put it on before your 7:00 AM morning commute. I almost swerved in surprise when it first came forth from ...

Born from Pain - War album cover

Born from Pain

War, 2006

7.5 / 10

Born from Pain's fourth full-length, War, is the next logical step for the Dutch masters of hardcore. The music still draws heavily from the 90's New York hardcore scene as ...

Amon Amarth - With Oden on Our Side album cover

Amon Amarth

With Oden on Our Side, 2006

7.5 / 10

According to the Vikings, the world will end in an apocalyptic battle known as Ragnarök, in which the dead will rise to attack the living and even the gods themselves ...

I Killed the Prom Queen

Music for the Recently Deceased, 2006

I'm not going to lie to you, kids. I have an affinity for most things from Down Under. I had family who lived there for fifteen years that I had ...

Disillusion - Gloria album cover


Gloria, 2006

2.0 / 10
200 Words Or Less

Disillusion sounds like an even more radio friendly version of Slipknot. Actually, I don't know Slipknot well enough to call them that. Let's just call it radio friendly shit, the ...

This Ending - Inside the Machine album cover

This Ending

Inside the Machine, 2007

7.0 / 10

This Ending's Inside the Machine is a creeper. The first time I heard it, I really didn't care for it. It was alright, but the music seemed somewhat stilted and ...

Psyopus - Our Puzzling Encounters Considered album cover


Our Puzzling Encounters Considered, 2007

6.0 / 10

Tech-metal reached perfection with The Dillinger Escape Plan's Calculating Infinity. That is my opinion, and you may argue that it is wrong or that my definition of tech metal is ...

Middian - Age Eternal album cover


Age Eternal, 2007

8.2 / 10

I can think of very few albums I have ever purchased, listened to once, and sold back to the store. Generally, I am a pretty forgiving guy and I can ...

Since the Flood - No Compromise album cover

Since the Flood

No Compromise, 2007

8.0 / 10

New Hampshire natives Since the Flood have worked hard to get where they are today. In their five years of existence the band has self-released a couple demos, signed as ...
