Don’t get me wrong, [Chron Goblin] could still be considered desert rock (hell, they even crossed the pond and played Desertfest), but there’s a bit more of a bluesy influence here, a little more up-tempo approach—but with some very heavy riffs thrown in for good measure.
Hellbound Metal: ” Odori Sepulcrorum is a sprawling and magnificent brew of the crushing might of death metal, the downtrodden scope of doom and the atmosphere of black metal. It presses in on the consciousness, making its victims uncomfortable in the least, and rendered mad at its best.”
Hellbound Metal: “Labyrinth is an audible reflection of the album’s concept: chaotic with erudite intricacy. Look beyond the perpetual bewildering shifts of tempo and style, and you’ll gain much respect for Fleshgod Apocalypse’s pursuit of higher thinking.”
Hellbound.ca’s Jason Wellwood in conversation with GWAR frontman Oderus Ungurus.
Hellbound Metal: “Call this power-doom if thou wilt, but they’re definitely more power, less doom this time around.”
Hellbound Metal: “Wonderful songwriting and incredible dynamics surround the boundless emotional core on More Constant Than The Gods. Each and every track is precious in its pain and power. Subrosa plays the massive against the melancholic, heaviness against heartache, anger against affection, depression against devotion.”
Hellbound Metal: “Battle Maximus is Gwar’s best album in years”.
Review by Bill Adams
Hellbound Metal: “A long-lost recording from the California hardcore crew with the new guy from Alice in Chains, remastered by Dave Grohl himself? OK, so you’ve piqued my interest.”
Hellbound’s Justin Richardson took in Finland’s Tuska Open Air Festival this summer featuring bands such as Amorphis, Bolt Thrower, Ihsahn and King Diamond. Here is his review of the first day at this renowned metal festival.
Hellbound Metal: ”
From start to finish Fatality flat out rip on Psychonaut. One can practically taste the sweat being flung from the flying hair of band and fans alike. Catchy as hell riffs and oh-hell-yeah solos get thrown around like nobody’s business.”
