ALBUM REVIEW

REVIEW: Machinae Supremacy – Phantom Shadow + concept teaser (Musicalypse Archive)

It's May 2016, which means MACHINAE SUPREMACY's "Phantom Shadow" came almost 2 years ago, so you may be wondering why I am writing a...

REVIEW: Whispered – Metsutan: Songs of the Void (Musicalypse Archive)

WHISPERED first caught my attention after the release of their debut album, "Thousand Swords," in 2010. "Thousand Swords" presented a mature band – WHISPERED...

REVIEW: Katatonia – The Fall of Hearts (Musicalypse Archive)

Some 4 years have passed since the release of KATATONIA’s last full-length album, "Dead End Kings" (2012). The band has mainly remained in people’s...

REVIEW: Amon Amarth – Jomsviking (Musicalypse Archive)

It has been weirdly hard for me to decide if I like AMON AMARTH or not. If you had asked me 6 years ago,...

REVIEW: Lacuna Coil – Delirium (Musicalypse Archive)

Oh LACUNA COIL, how I used to love you. I don't remember how I came across these guys back in the day, but I...

REVIEW: Moonsorrow – Jumalten aika (Musicalypse Archive)

I'd be genuinely surprised if there's a single person in the world who can claim that MOONSORROW is a "bad" band. You may not...

REVIEW: Thunderstone – Apocalypse Again (Musicalypse Archive)

THUNDERSTONE is one of those bands where you consistently find yourself wondering, "Where did they go? Why don't they put out more music?" or...

REVIEW: End of Aeon – Through Infant Eyes (Musicalypse Archive)

I largely feel like, in my personal experience, fans of female-fronted metal largely (though not always) tend to fall into two categories - there...

REVIEW: Everfrost – Blue Eyed Emotion + concept teaser (Musicalypse Archive)

The name EVERFROST may be a new one to many of you, which is a true shame. Formed by Benjamin Connelly in 2014, this...

REVIEW: Devin Townsend Project – Live at the Royal Albert Hall (Musicalypse Archive)

When you think of Canada and metal, there’s really only one person who comes to mind: Devin Townsend. This creative soul is known for...

REVIEW: Queensrÿche – Conditon Human (Musicalypse Archive)

QUEENSRYCHE first got my attention when their ugly split with original vocalist Geoff Tate made headlines in 2012. I followed the lawsuit between the...

REVIEW: Bring Me the Horizon – That’s the Spirit (Musicalypse Archive)

For a long time, the majority of my metal friends were metal snobs. You know, the type who will judge you for listening to...

REVIEW: Leaves’ Eyes – King of Kings (Musicalypse Archive)

I really want to love LEAVES' EYES. Liv Kristine is one of my favorite female vocalists of all time and Viking metal is one...

REVIEW: Iron Maiden – The Book of Souls (Musicalypse Archive)

Ah, my first Musicalypse review of my first love. If you’ve read any of my reports by this point, you’ve probably figured out that...

REVIEW: Riverside – Love, Fear and the Time Machine (Musicalypse Archive)

I discovered RIVERSIDE 2 years ago and the Poles’ atmospheric prog struck a chord with me immediately. I find myself gravitating towards the band’s...

REVIEW: Amorphis – Under the Red Cloud (Musicalypse Archive)

AMORPHIS hasn’t been exactly amorphous in recent years, as the band seems to have adopted an “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mentality...

REVIEW: Bullet for My Valentine – Venom (Musicalypse Archive)

I know I’ve been going on and on about how great the new releases in 2015 have been, but let’s face it – those...

REVIEW: Helloween – My God Given Right (Musicalypse Archive)

My luck this year with new albums has been a bit crazy. Several of my oldest, favorite bands have put out great new albums...

REVIEW: Kamelot – Haven (Musicalypse Archive)

What can I say about KAMELOT? They’re a great band. I’ve liked them for a really long time, but for whatever reason, haven’t listened...

REVIEW: Apocalyptica – Shadowmaker (Musicalypse Archive)

APOCALYPTICA came out with a new album today! I’ve been a fan of this band since back when I first heard "Plays Metallica on...
