WLM Reviews: Almah – Unfold

As with many albums I review here at We Love Metal, I had no idea what to expect from this Brazilian Power Metal group.  A lot of times when a band is described as Melodic Power Metal, they are undistinguished from their peers and usually end up being left off of my review schedule – and...

WLM Reviews: Ephel Duath – Hemmed by Light, Shaped by Darkness

Sometimes we Metal fans have individual musicians that we find to be completely compelling.  For me, they tend to be drummers – Dave Lombardo, Neil Peart, Mike Portnoy, or Nicko McBrain.

WLM Interviews: Ihsahn

On Tuesday, October 22nd,  I had a chance to speak with, who in my opinion, is both a wonderful musician and a black metal icon. Ihsahn started Emperor in 1990, and took black metal to a whole other realm.

WLM Reviews: Devin Townsend – The Retinal Circus

I am a huge fan of Devin Townsend (if only for a few years now).  I didn’t really “get” Strapping Young Lad until after the band was defunct.  His solo work is something that really speaks to me, though.

WLM Reviews: Lalu – Atomic Ark

Atomic Ark is the latest from French Progressive Metal composer and keyboardist Vivien Lalu on Sensory Records.  As with a lot of albums I get here for review, I was not sure what to expect.  I thought the band name was a bit different so decided to give it a chance.
