WLM Reviews: Selene - The Ravages of Time
Ireland isn't really known for their contributions to the metal community. Granted, there are many Irish metal acts in existence already but these guys are definitely rising faster than any of the t
WLM Reviews: Prospekt - The Illuminated Sky
Several years ago, I had the opportunity to review UK-based Prospekt's debut album, The Colourless Sunrise. Though I haven't listened to it much in the intervening years, I do remember enjoying it and

WLM Reviews: Reflection - Bleed Babylon Bleed
Greece seems to be a place that generates some quality Metal. Maybe it's the food, the ouzo, or just in the culture.
The Greek Metal scene is heavy on BM, but surprisingly not as much in the way of
WLM Reviews: Crazy Lixx - Ruff Justice
These guys are injecting life into a scene that was prevalent many years ago. It's albums like these that truly make me wish I grew up in this era. While those years are gone literally, it doesn't m

WLM Reviews: Eruption - Cloaks of Oblivion
Hopes were not high. Another band touted as Thrash from Eastern Europe. I've heard a number of these before and only a few of them were any good. There are exceptions, however - and Eruption is one.
WLM Reviews: Unleash The Archers - Apex
After listening to the fourth album from Canadians, Unleash The Archers, they are definitely destined for metal greatness if they haven't hit that pinnacle yet. The combination of genres and element
WLM Reviews: Jorn - Life on Death Road
The best voice in Norway is back with album number 9. OK - maybe the best voice in Europe, if not all of Metal. This one is Life on Death Road from Frontiers Records.
Jorn Lande established himself
WLM Reviews: Iced Earth - Incorruptible
The American Power Metal stalwarts Iced Earth are on full length original number 12. With Incorruptible on Century Media, I was curious if the band could bounce back to the quality of Dystopia after t
