WLM Reviews: The Ocean – Pelagial

A plethora of words come to my mind in describing the oceans on our planet:  placid, serene, deep, complex, violent, dangerous, expansive, alive.  Each of these terms can also be used to describe Progressive Metal group The Ocean and their latest offering, Pelagial on Metal Blade Records.

Review – Resolution by Chosen

What I have for you today is a duo that sounds like a 12 piece band. Heavier than hell and groovier than the half-naked drunk girl dancing at the bar (trust me, that’s a whole lot of groovy).

Review: DGM – Momentum

When I played DGM‘s latest album Momentum for the very first time, I thought, “Wow – this is awesome!”  The band has really elevated their songwriting and execution with their 8th album on Scarlet Records.  After many more listens, it is still quite awesome.

Review: Odd Dimension – The Last Embrace to Humanity

It seems like Italian Power and Progressive Metal bands have been rather prolific with album releases over the last couple of years – Kingcrow, Heimdall, Sound Storm, Elvenking, and DGM (an upcoming review) are just a few.  I’m sure I missed some.

Review: Mattias IA Eklundh (Freak Guitar) – The Smorgasbord

Mattias “IA” Eklundh is a Swedish guitarist, founder of the eclectic Metal band, Freak Kitchen, a band of which I am certainly a fan.  The Smorgasbord is his third album under the moniker of Freak Guitar, essentially a solo album, and isn’t one I would quite classify as Metal.

Quick Review: Intronaut – Milk Leg

I have heard of Intronaut, but never really heard anything by them.  I got a copy of their single Milk Leg from their upcoming album Habitual Levitations (Instilling Words With Tones) from Century Media Records.  I wasn’t sure what to expect, but after a listen or two, I was hooked.

Review: Kingcrow – In Crescendo

Last year I saw Kingcrow at ProgPowerUSA in Atlanta and was very much looking forward to their performance based on the positive things being said about the band in the crowd.  I was not too impressed however, and according to the PPUSA message board, I wasn’t alone.
