Album Review: Iron Mask – Diabolica

It’s quite an enjoyable experience when an artist you’ve never heard of has a very similar sound to artists you already know, especially if they’re one of the big names in the scene. There are a handful of artists this album can be compared to and I think the results are massively pleasing.

WLM Reviews: Opeth – Sorceress

Though I’m not a huge fan, I do know not to expect anything specific when it comes to Opeth and their release of a new album. With Sorceress on Nuclear Blast, it’s best to go in without setting yourself up, no matter how difficult.

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

I often talk of expectations when it comes to music. As in several of my recent reviews, sometimes they are met (Black Crown Initiate), sometimes exceeded (Elm Street), and sometimes the product falls short (Withem).

WLM Reviews: Vektor – Terminal Redux

It is normally my personal policy to only review those albums that labels or bands choose to share with me. On extremely rare occasions will I deviate. This is one of those times.

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.
