Reviews and Features For January 2016
Schammasch - Sic Lvceat Lvx
Sic Lvceat Lvx is one of those albums that had a chance to be incredible but it sounds like an album that has neither a head nor feet to keep it balanced. Everything in the album lacks pacing, nuance, any sense of resolve

RAM - Svbversvm
Svbversvm may be something of importance to the RAM catalog as it manages to shed much of the inconsistency that has loitered around the group since the dawn of time.

Sunflower Dead - It's Time to Get Weird
Members of the band wear evil clown make-up in concert and in their videos so an album title like Its Time to Get Weird is very fitting, but the guys prove right here that theres no fooling around when it comes down to laying down the riffs.

Witchsorrow - No Light Only Fire

How can someone I never met leave such a gap? His music has been so intrinsically a part of my life I cant fathom a world where there will never be another album, another video or a final concert.

W.A.S.P. - Golgotha
Golgotha isnt restricted by age, but style. It is a pacified version of this band without the bite- this is something evident in the songwriting. The tracks are lighthearted and feathery for a heavy metal group
