Waco Fuck - Paranoia is Total Awareness album cover

Waco Fuck

Paranoia is Total Awareness, 2008

7.8 / 10

Anger is a gift, at least when making music. Some really manic but great recordings have been borne out of huge amounts of frustration and anger. Waco Fuck are one ...

Wait in Vain - Demo album cover

Wait in Vain

Demo, 2005

9.0 / 10

Wait in Vain was a band that featured ex-members of Trial and Champion who released a four-song demo back in 2005. A substantial buzz grew over this band and the ...

When you look at the list of previous ventures from the members of Wait in Vain, it’s hard to not get excited. Frontman Timm McIntosh was a founding member of ...

Wake - Misery Rites album cover


Misery Rites, 2018

9.0 / 10

Wake is a Canadian grindcore act. One of those grindcore-acts that have taken care of me not growing tired of the genre. The unrelenting speed and anger are good fun, ...

Wall Of Water - Promo 2015 album cover

Wall Of Water

Promo 2015, 2015

7.6 / 10
200 Words Or Less

The deliciously gloomy album art on Wall of Water's two-track Promo 2015 features what seems to be a long-abandoned roller coaster rotting away in the elements, an image that seems ...

Wang Wen - Invisible City  album cover

Wang Wen

Invisible City , 2018

6.0 / 10

China isn’t the first country you think of when it comes to rock music but over the last two decades, Wang Wen has been placing their home on the musical ...

War - At War For Youth album cover


At War For Youth, 2012

6.9 / 10

Debut 7”, At War for Youth (the band has also released a split cassette) seems totally off-putting. It’s brash, terribly lo-fi, and haunting. There is a strong, almost mesmerising quality ...

War From A Harlots Mouth - MMX album cover

War From A Harlots Mouth

MMX, 2010

7.3 / 10

War from a Harlots Mouth is definitely not new to the metal core or death core scene. They’ve been around a while, done tours, essentially put in their time. But, ...

War of Ages - Fire from the Tomb album cover

War of Ages

Fire from the Tomb, 2007

6.5 / 10
200 Words Or Less

Erie has a long-standing tradition of hardcore: xDisciplex A.D., Brothers Keeper, Shockwave, and Abnegation. Continuing that tradition is War of Ages, though they definitely mix their hardcore influences with a ...

WAR//PLAGUE -  Temperaments of War EP album cover


Temperaments of War EP, 2014

7.0 / 10

Over the course of their last few records these Minneapolis crust punk stalwarts have really honed their metal chops. I’ll do my best to avoid any “who put their metal ...

WAR//PLAGUE - Primal album cover


Primal, 2013

7.0 / 10
200 Words Or Less

WAR//PLAGUE always come a little different each time out. Primal is their fifth release (and the seventh single in the Profane Existence Single Series) and one that shows the Minneapolis quartet stripping away ...

Warbringer - Waking Into Nightmares album cover


Waking Into Nightmares, 2009

8.3 / 10

A little over a year has passed since the release of Warbringer's debut album, War Without End, an album which was solid, but didn't really have any lasting value. Imagine ...

Warhorse - As Heaven Turns To Ash... album cover


As Heaven Turns To Ash..., 2015

9.0 / 10

As much as I like the “what if?” scenarios, at the same time I hate them. It is always nice to theorize about what could have happened if x has ...

Wartorn - Domestic Terrorist / Under Oath  album cover


Domestic Terrorist / Under Oath , 2013

7.0 / 10

If you had asked me two years ago if I’d rather hear another Wartorn song or be kicked in the crotch by a Clydesdale that’s wearing a pair ice climbing ...

Wasted Time - No Shore album cover

Wasted Time

No Shore, 2007

7.6 / 10
200 Words Or Less

Wasted Time basically sounds like Time to Escape but with more gruff vocals and more influences that stem from early New York hardcore than Dischord. Once again, if it's done ...

The Wild Hunt, 2013

7.6 / 10
Multiple Authors

Watain has been on the cusp of something huge for the last couple years. With a handful of great records and a live show that could manage to get a ...
