This Machine Is Not Broken: The Dandy Warhols Review at Huffington Post

This Machine Is Not Broken: The Dandy Warhols Review at Huffington Post "The instrumentation in the album is incredible, the production very clean. "Sad Vacation" and "The Autumn Carnival" are great cuts. I especially love the addition of brass to the ensemble. Though CTT may sound tired in "I am Free," the triumphal build and blare of the trumpets make the song bright and roadtrip-worthy....Likewise, "Don't Shoot, She Cried" weaves layers of harmonica, synth, and acoustic guitar into a … [Read more...]

Sic Asylum Album Review Gives Spirits of the Dead a 9/10

Sic Asylum Gives Spirits of the Dead "Rumours of a Presence" 9/10   "It’s safe to say that Spirits of the Dead are Norway’s best kept secret....With Rumours Of A Presence it is impossible to classify Spirits of the Dead as any one genre of music or any particular band.  I was asked to describe them last night and was left completely dumbfounded.  After much thought, the best that I could do was say Mastodon meets Pink Floyd, Rush, Black Sabbath, Queens of the Stone Age, … [Read more...]

About Heavy Metal Reviews Spirits of the Dead

About.com Heavy Metal Album Review: Spirits of the Dead   "With the flow of a long drag on a sensimilla roach, drummer Geir Thorstensen and bassist Kristen Hultgren hypnotically anchor this nickelbag collection. Historically accurate lo-fi production crystalizes the eight sugar cubes of stoner- jam dreamscapes." - About.com Heavy Metal Read the full review HERE … [Read more...]

Anvil ‘Hope In Hell’ Review at Colossal Pop

Anvil 'Hope In Hell' Review at Colossal Pop   "Hope in Hell is another thoroughly metal album from Anvil. What I enjoy the most about their last few albums is that, even after the documentary, nothing has really changed. They still sound like Anvil, a cross between Alice Cooper, Motorhead, and AC/DC, with a little heavier edge. They have a fun and cheesy side, especially lyrically, but are all business when it comes to the music....If you have never heard Anvil before than this is … [Read more...]

Anvil ‘Hope In Hell’ Review at The Talkhouse

Anvil 'Hope In Hell' Review at The Talkhouse   "Hope in Hell is pure rock & roll from start to finish, the unmistakable sound of a band that has spent a lot of time on the road. There's nothing really tricky about the production, it's very straight-up and sounds great, not too many overdubs, and all of this leads me to believe that the place Anvil really shines is onstage. I’m going to check them out next time they come through Philadelphia." Read more at The … [Read more...]

PUSHMEN Rated “Excellent” on Metal Temple

PUSHMEN - The Sun Will Rise Soon On The False And The Fair "The idea here is straightforward and what PUSHMEN manage to accomplish is to put together their metallic sound alongside their love for hardcore punk. And what they are bringing forth is an album sitting exactly in-between the two genres; “The Sun Will Rise Soon On The False And The Fair” includes in its nine songs the best of both worlds....(it) reveals that PUSHMEN are a band on the rise. And it will be unforgivable to … [Read more...]
