Following Mausoleum Gate‘s 2014 critically acclaimed self-titled debut album comes the two-track 7″ vinyl release of Metal and the Might. The release contains two new songs to please all their fans and keep the flame alive. Reflecting once more the eccentricity and uniqueness of these Fins, the title track is a straight in your face metal offering. The B side is occupied for over 6 minutes by the fantastic “Demon Soul,” representing the band’s...

Bangladesh’s underground metal scene is getting bigger by the day. The future of metal is being molded by this scene. The scene is primarily focused on extreme metal. There are very few traditional metal bands that have emerged from this scene recently. Sonic Predator is here to change that.  Check out some new Heavy Metal from Bangladesh!

It is always nice to hear a metal album that bends the rules of genrefication(I’m coining that word right now!) rather than conform to them. That is just what Italy’s Barbarian does with their new album Cult of the Empty Grave. This is an epic heavy metal album that fluently blends elements of thrash, traditional metal, and black metal. We have been told our whole lives to never judge a book by its cover, but this is an album. If you were to judge Cult of the...

Traditional heavy metal is well documented. It is very hard to expose someone to a heavy metal band from the 80’s they have never heard of, regardless of their origin. So tell me why no one has ever heard of the heavy cutting edge of Sacred Few? Sacred Few’s Beyond The Iron Walls sounds like an excellent lost NWOBHM cut from the early 80’s even though they hail from Ohio and this album was originally released in 1985. Once you put on Beyond The Iron Walls...

SHE’S THE CREATURE OF YOUR DOOM! SHE’S THE NIGHT VIPER, THE FLOWER ON YOUR TOMB! Let me set the mood correctly for this experience to hit home. You just ended the nightly edition of your public access rock show. You jump in your AMC Pacer and pick up your buddies and head to the local place that has bands playing. The dude at the door tells you some shitty cover band is playing and another band you never heard of. That band is Night Viper and that chick can...

  Coming from a skullcrushing crust punk sound in their early music, Onslaught’s The Force is a refined, epic, thrash, masterpiece.Onslaught, much like Sacrilege, started off as a hardcore/crusty punk band and evolved into a brilliant thrash band. Unlike their debut album Power From Hell (a very under rated and ripped off constantly album) which was a raw crusty thrash album, Onslaught sewed together elements of the bay area thrash scene and Iron Maiden stylised...
