ADEPT – Silence The World (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

ADEPTSilence The World Panic & Action (2013)Rating: 8/10 Swedish post-hardcore quintet Adept have returned with their third full-length release. While it seems post-hardcore and post-metalcore are tags thrown around a lot in recent years, it’s hard to pin down exactly what it means. In the case of Adept, it means brutal hardcore riffs undergirding a […]

DEVIL – Gather The Sinners (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

DEVILGather The Sinners Soulseller (2013)Rating: 8/10 Gather The Sinners is the second release from Norway’s Devil, another of those creaky doom-laden metal ’n’ roll bands who’ve mastered the art of sounding old yet modern! Sure, this kind of stuff is now out there in abundance, but there are a handful of bands that do it […]

DE LA CRUZ – Street Level (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

DE LA CRUZStreet Level Frontiers (2013)Rating: 3/10 Just because Steel Panther have been successful with their brand of cheesy modern day, albeit nostalgic, hair metal, doesn’t mean other bands should follow suit. In the past I could only deal with one Spinal Tap, and furthermore only one Bad News, but now these types of parody […]

SEBASTIAN BACHABachalypse Now Frontiers (2013)Rating: 8/10 Bach is back! Sebastian Bach hits the racks again with a new live DVD / CD combo.

SIX FEET UNDER – A Sinister Craving Anthony Morgan March 2013 Chris Barnes Chris Barnes – vocalist for Tampa, Florida-based death metal outfit Six Feet Under – scribbled the words The Undead Chronicles, Volume 1 And 2 on a sheet of paper during November 2009, the words later forming the title of a two-album series: […]

SIX FEET UNDER – A Sinister Craving, Part Two (March 2013) | Features / Interviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

Chris Barnes Undead and Unborn are collectively the first studio full-lengths to be issued since the pair’s departure. “I think these are kind of stand-out albums, and are kind of connected for sure – musically, lyrically, story-wise, and the album covers, the artwork and everything,” the frontman critiques. “I think they’re definitely more of those […]

ANTHRAX – Anthems (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

ANTHRAXAnthems EP Nuclear Blast (2013)Rating: 8/10 Anthrax is a band that needs no introduction. These titans of thrash were one of the most influential metal bands of the 80s. The 90s saw a change in line-up and a heavier style that alienated some fans and gained others. After several years of relative obscurity following the […]

THE MODERN AGE SLAVERY – Requiem For Us All (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

THE MODERN AGE SLAVERYRequiem For Us All Pavement Music (2013)Rating: 5.5/10 The strangely named The Modern Age Slavery is an Italian death metal band that combines grindcore elements with polished death metal values – I’m guessing some people will call this style of music “deathcore”? This is very much a modern affair that relies heavily […]

SIX FEET UNDER – Unborn (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

SIX FEET UNDERUnborn Metal Blade (2013)Rating: 8/10 With sales nearing the half-million mark, Chris Barnes’ Six Feet Under returns with Unborn. For the second album in a row, the music gets a lift from personnel changes, replacing Undead (2012) guitarist Rob Arnold (Chimaira) with Swedish punisher Ola Englund (Feared, Scarpoint) and welcoming new bassist Jeff […]
