WLM Reviews: Imminent Sonic Destruction – Triumphia

WLM Reviews: Imminent Sonic Destruction – Triumphia

Imminent Sonic Destruction. Correct me if I’m off base here, but that name conjures up a no-holds-barred Metalcore squad. One that delivers an almost incomprehensible mix of downtuned chugging, guttural emanations, and a bevy of blast beats. Right?

Album Review: Does Controversy Rule Operation: Mindcrime’s Resurrection?

Operation: Mindcrime, notice the colon, it’s supposed to make you think of the new Geoff Tate fronted band, not the legendary album by Tate’s former band Queensryche. Due to the name and the explosive words between both camps albums released by either fall under a critical eye of both reviewers and gossip mongers. Operation:

WLM Reviews: The Devin Townsend Project – Transcendence

WLM Reviews: Evergrey – The Storm Within

Never a band to listen to for a pick me up, Evergrey returns with The Storm Within on AFM Records. The progressive, dark, and melancholy elements are once again present, along with the distinctive melodic lines employed by Tom Englund and crew.

WLM Reviews: Oddland – Origin

There is a glut of Metal these days, a tsunami of sound. Don’t believe me? According to Encylopaedia Metallum, on August 26th no fewer than 44 Metal releases were scheduled. Sure, they weren’t all full length albums, but most were. Some heavy hitters (Deep Purple, Sodom, Delain) and some truly underground bands (Astrophobos, Oncology).

WLM Concert Review: Iris Divine at Star Bar in Chicago Ridge, IL

It was a dark and stormy night. No really, it was. Very stormy in Chicago. Torrents of rain, claps of thunder, bolts of lightning. This night was also full of some Metal thunder courtesy of some local bands and a Harley favorite, Prog Metallers Iris Divine.

WLM Reviews: Hammers of Misfortune – Dead Revolution

Metal Blade collective Hammers of Misfortune are one of those bands that just ooze a certain trippy, almost hallucinogenic style so completely embodied in their heavy musical offerings. The band’s latest, Dead Revolution, fits nicely in that arena.
