Raise the Red Lantern - Thunderfuck album cover

Raise the Red Lantern

Thunderfuck, 2006

9.0 / 10

It's hard to say if stoner rock on a whole tries to be "epic" in a way that other instrumental oriented metals do. Mostly they try to get as heavy ...

From The North is Raised Fist’s first release since 2009’s Veil of Ignorance, and is a continuation of the style and sound honed on that album. Veil of Ignorance was ...

The other week a friend and I went to a jazz club - the Lilypad in Cambridge, MA. We didn’t know who was playing there that night - we were ...

Rally the Fray

To Never Live in Denial, 2006

2.0 / 10

I don't know about anyone else but when I get a new album I don't listen to it right away at first. I usually check out the song the titles, ...

Ramming Speed - Brainwreck album cover

Ramming Speed

Brainwreck, 2008

7.5 / 10

Boston-based Ramming Speed burst onto the scene with their debut 7” in 2007. The EP followed suit of the crossover/thrash revival that had recently begun to sweep our nation. But ...

Rammstein - Made in Germany 1995-2011 album cover


Made in Germany 1995-2011, 2011

8.5 / 10

I usually don't have the time to listen to all of the albums sent to us by every Tom, Dick and Harry around, so I generally save reviews outside of ...

Rammstein - Paris – the special edition album cover


Paris – the special edition, 2017

8.5 / 10

Ah, Rammstein.  Härte. Neue deutsche. Grinding metal guitars, brute masculinity, pyromania, double entendres, operatic sub-sonic vocals, wordplays galore and taboo subjects.  In a live context, they burn – literally, being ...

Ramones - It's Alive 1974-1996 album cover


It's Alive 1974-1996, 2007

9.2 / 10

The Ramones are finished. Over. Unlike their peers from the 1970’s, there will be no reunion tours. Joey, Johnny and Dee Dee have passed on. That’s three out of the ...

6.5 / 10
200 Words Or Less

Boston-based hardcore outfit Rampage unleash thirteen tracks of thrash influenced hardcore on Limit of Destruction. Some of the cuts here take on a definite New York hardcore vibe, while others ...

Ramparts - Tramps Like Us album cover


Tramps Like Us, 2007

9.0 / 10

Complacency is one of the greatest threats to hardcore's continued vitality. Many bands fail to grasp the importance of taking risks to produce a fresh sound. Even more frustrating are ...

Rancid - Honor Is All We Know album cover


Honor Is All We Know, 2014

5.1 / 10

For years I was the biggest Rancid fan. The first record I didn’t buy on its release date was B-Sides & C-Sides, and that’s because I already had the songs. ...

Rancid - Let the Dominoes Fall album cover


Let the Dominoes Fall, 2009

7.2 / 10
Multiple Authors

I could write a thousand words on Rancid here if I wanted. I spent the better part of the 90's defending them amongst the punx, though my enthusiasm for the ...

Rancid - Let the Dominoes Fall album cover


Let the Dominoes Fall, 2009

5.9 / 10
Multiple Authors

Rancid changed my life when I was twelve years old. Yes, Nirvana and Green Day had me going in the right direction, but Rancid absolutely changed me with their shocking ...

Rancid - Trouble Maker album cover


Trouble Maker, 2017

7.5 / 10

It’s strange to me to realize that Rancid just released their ninth album. It’s a mark of age, not to mention that they haven’t been the most productive band on ...

Random - Todo.s los colores del album cover


Todo.s los colores del, 2011

9.5 / 10

I really wish I could describe Argentinian three-piece Random's sound to you. Their Facebook page lists their genre as 'extreme prog metal,' but that label could cover any band from ...

Random Axe - Self Titled album cover

Random Axe

Self Titled, 2011

7.5 / 10

After a few years of anticipatory mixtapes, the debut album by Radom Axe has finally seen the light of day. A multiregional supergroup of sorts, Random Axe is comprised of ...

Rata Negra - Oido Absoluto LP album cover

Rata Negra

Oido Absoluto LP, 2017

8.0 / 10
200 Words Or Less

This is some killer punk out of Madrid, Spain on that throwback tip. If you had told me this was some recently excavated ‘80s gem getting the reissue treatment I’d ...

Ratatat - LP3 album cover


LP3, 2008

3.0 / 10

Even if you haven’t heard of Ratatat, you’ve heard them. They boast an impressive list of their songs featured in endless commercials and movies. Ratatat is everywhere. Beginning in 2004 ...
