Reviews and thoughts on albums, artists and songs.

Deep calleth upon Deep – Satyricon

Nay sayers will tell you that Satyricon finally went over the deep end with their self-titled album. While it was a far cry from the “black n’ roll” style of Now, Diabolical and Age of Nero, I found it to be an artistic masterpiece. It’s an…

Excited for Ensiferum

Though they have stayed virtually the same over the years, Ensiferum has never failed to deliver top notch music that hits a certain aesthetic. Surfing the wave that was One Man Army, they’re back with steel and fury to bring us Two Paths on September 15th of…

Crowdfunding in Metal

This seems to be a pretty dividing subject among the metal community, so I said, “What the hell? Might as well throw my two cents into the hat too.” The bottom line of my opinion: Crowdfunding could save this community. Period.   With the…

Why Metal?

I feel like a lot of people don’t really understand the genre(s) of music. As a reader of this blog, perhaps you do to some extent, or maybe you’re just here for the RPG stuff. Either way is fine, but this post is to…

Moonsorrow: Jumalten Aika

Some of you may have noticed but for those who haven’t, I’m totally biased in the realm of Scandinavian, folk and/or black metal. I just love the shit and I love Moonsorrow, and although I’m late to the party, ’tis why I’m reviewing this…

Jomsviking – Amon Amarth

Break out your drinking horns and two handed axes! Because Amon Amarth is going to take us on another journey with their newest album, Jomsviking. Can i just start with something? I have been absolutely stoked for this album since there was even a whisper…

Dig Deep – After The Burial

This is actually the first I have ever heard of this band and thought I’d give it a listen. After the Burial is a band out of Twin Cities, Minnesota currently signed with Sumerian Records, though they have a couple of other albums released…

Abbath – Abbath

   Let there be ABBATH! Let’s be honest with ourselves, Abbath had painted a rather silly picture of the black metal scene but there is absolutely nothing silly about this album. Being a black metal fan, I felt a little obliged to check this…

Noita – Korpiklaani

   I haven’t decided how I’ll do album reviews so I’m just kind of winging it here. The first track on this album is Viinamäen Mies (or the Vineyard Man, for people unfamiliar with Finnish) has that very familiar polka-type Korpiklaani feel to it….
