In light of it being my birthday today, I thought I would bring the dedicated readers of WLM into my life a little more personally. We all started our journey through the World of Metal through various bands and artists of course.
Constricting Rage of The Merciless is Goatwhore’s 6th studio album. From the get-go, Goatwhore had a solid base of good technical skill, and an understanding on how to mix black and death metal. They’ve only gotten better since that first album.
The first half of 2014 has passed and gone and there has been an overwhelming amount of metal that has been released. We’ve seen major releases from just about every genre of metal out there. Some average and so so, to outstanding and explosive.
Australia is not known for their contributions to the Metal World. In a similar manner, the genre of Folk Metal doesn’t have a solid, definite presence among the other genres of the Metal Family. If you haven’t guessed yet, today’s post is a quick one, Australian Folk Metal Sextet, Enviktas, have released their debut EP.
We obviously can’t replace the mighty band DEATH, nor can we match the ground breaking and influential effect they have had on the metal world. Our featured band this week, Shards of Humanity seems to know and accept this, yet they can certainly pay homage to the masters.
Allegaeon’s new album, Elements of the Infinite, is about to be unleashed on Metal Blade Records. In anticipation of it, I had a chance to interview guitarist Mike Stancel to discuss the album, touring, and romantic proposals.
Today brings something a bit more mainstream to We Love Metal, I said a BIT more mainstream. Yes, from one of the Metal headquarters, Gothenburg, Sweden and having a heavier presence here in the States, quintet named, Avatar, (No not from the film), have recently released their fifth album titled, Hail The Apocalypse.
The cover looks authentic and most importantly ENDING QUEST sounds authentic. Authentic to what? Death Metal! Straight ahead, in your face, don’t take time to breath, Death Metal. It’s rare I hear something this brutal in a day and age where everyone is trying to add some groove.
