WLM Reveiws: Mekong Delta – In a Mirror Darkly

How is it that a band who has been around for almost 30 years, one with critical acclaim and a number of well received albums, one that plays a compelling and technical style of Metal, has escaped my attention basically for as long as I have been into Metal?

WLM Reviews: Anubis Gate – Horizons

Danish Progressive Metal band Anubis Gate return with their new album Horizons on Nightmare Records.  This band is one that I classify in the “thinking Metalhead’s band” category.  No dumbing down of anything here, from song compositions, musical performances, or lyrics.

WLM Reviews: Teramaze – Esoteric Symbolism

Australian Progressive Metallers Teramaze return with their 4th full length album, Esoteric Symbolism, on Nightmare Records less than 2 years after their relatively successful breakout album AnhedoniA.  I admit I haven’t heard them before, but these guys are right up my alley combining elements of Prog and Power Metal in a compelling way.

WLM Concert Review: BTBAM & Intronaut at Durty Nelly’s, Palatine, Illinois

I’ve been following Intronaut for a few years now and was pretty psyched that they were performing nearby at Durty Nelly’s in Palatine, Illinois, as I missed them on their other recent visits.  As a bonus, they were with Between the Buried and Me, a band for whom my appreciation continues to grow.

WLM Reviews: Vanden Plas – Chronicles of the Immortals-Netherworld (Path One)

Long time Progressive Metal band Vanden Plas returns with their first album since 2010 with “(the all too short titled) Chronicles of the Immortals-– Netherworld (Path One) on Frontiers Records.  This time we find the band embarking on a journey through another concept album (not exactly a big surprise) via the story of human existence.

WLM Reviews: Sahg – Delusions of Grandeur

Some band names are a pretty good tip off to what style of music you are going to hear.  Anvil – straight ahead Heavy Metal.  Cannibal Corpse – Death Metal.  Hammer(something) or Dragon(fill in the blank) – Power Metal.  Fates Warning – Progressive Metal.  Sahg?  I assumed Black Metal.

Album Review: Periphery – Clear

Periphery, one of the most innovative and successful progressive metal bands of the last 5 years has never been afraid to explore new boundaries. Their newest release, Clear, is what they would call an experiment, neither a full album nor EP.

Jacob’s Journey Through the Abyss: 100-91

This is the start of my journey through the abyss. Decibel Magazine put out a special article of their “Top 100 Black Metal Albums of All Time”. And I, being a fan of black metal, rose to the challenge of going through an album a day and seeing how good the list is.
