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

Review: Voivod – Target Earth

Back.  With a vengence.  Voivod‘s 13th studio album, Target Earth on Century Media, is their most intense, complicated, dissonant, aggressive album in a long time, perhaps since pre-Nothingface.  It is also the first without Piggy on guitar, the band having expended his recordings on the last couple of albums.

In 2008 Diagonal had a massive self-titled album that had people heralding them as the rebirth of Prog Metal and the next thing to move the music forward. Their unique style was embraced by the heavy metal scene and the rock scene as well.
