Time and time again, Shadows Fall never cease to amaze me, from beginning to end this album eerily reminds me of the early days of the band. This album is incredibly driving and forceful musically and lyrically, and once again Shadows Fall has done it. This is the type of album that deserves to be called metal album of the year hands down. They truly are flying the flag of American Heavy Metal, well I say fly it high guys!
Black Breath’s newest album ‘Sentenced to Life’ is distinctly not distinct. It is its own brand of brilliant thrash metal with a heavy attitude that is that of traditional hardcore. A metal album that is reminiscent of the Bay Area, circa 1987.
This album will thoroughly surprise you. With the onslaught of these types of bands hitting the airwaves now, Christian Mistress takes a different approach, mixing bluesy Sabbathesque riffs with deep, dark, mesmerizing vocals, and just the right amount of sludge/doom metal intertwined.
