Album Review: Ice Nine Kills – The Silver Scream 2: Welcome To Horrorwood

[Note - this review was drafted 2 weeks ago, but embargoed to keep as many surprises as possible for faithful fans! So don't read it if you want to wait till you've listened to guess what films the songs are based on - Mosh] Sequels, eh? Pff. Never as good as the original. Well, except … Continue reading Album Review: Ice Nine Kills – The Silver Scream 2: Welcome To Horrorwood

Album Review: Trivium – In The Court Of The Dragon

I was caught on the hop with this review after a reminder kicked in that it's out on Friday and "real" work and family have had me buried since I got my hands on it.

That's actually the main reason I picked this album out … Continue reading Album Review: Asking Alexandria – See What’s On The Inside

Album Review: Tremonti – Marching in Time

It made sense almost a decade ago for Alter Bridge’s Mark Tremonti to form his own self-named side project which focused more on metal. And he’s had plenty of opportunity to release material as we now have album five, Marching in Time, in our hands. As the band explored different flavours between double albums, concept … Continue reading Album Review: Tremonti – Marching in Time
