RECKLESS LOVE – Spirit (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

RECKLESS LOVESpirit Spinefarm (2013)Rating: 3/10 Finland’s Reckless Love is a band you’ll either love or hate. They are very much part of the whole metal revival scene, with numerous bands – of varying genres – from thrash to glam. These bands hope to reinvent the steel and bring back those glorious days of the 80s […]


GORGUTS – Colored Sands (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

GORGUTSColored Sands Season Of Mist (2013)Rating: 8.5/10 Gorguts are, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the greatest death metal bands of all time. Their disconcerting brand of nihilistic, technical death metal has battered the senses since their inception in 1989. The outfit, hailing from Québec in Canada, began life as a punishing death […]


IRON JAWS – Guilty Of Ignorance (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

IRON JAWSGuilty Of Ignorance Pure Steel (2013)Rating: 7/10 Iron Jaws are an Italian quartet who likes to indulge in old school thrash that actually works rather than irritates. Guilty Of Ignorance is the second full-length opus from this band, a follow-up to 2010’s Louder Is Not Enough. This is the sort of frantic moshing madness […]

STAINLESS STEELMetal Machine Pure Underground (2013)Rating: 7/10 Can it get more metal when a band is called Stainless Steel and their album’s title is Metal Machine?!

DEVILDRIVER – Winter Kills (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

DEVILDRIVERWinter Kills Napalm (2013)Rating: 8.5/10 It’s hard to believe that DevilDriver’s sixth album is upon us. When the Southern California band, fronted by then ex-Coal Chamber mainman Dez Fafara, hit the scene most extreme metal fans were apprehensive at best. Fafara and company have proven over the years though that they are one of the […]

MICHAEL MONROE – Horns And Halos (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

MICHAEL MONROEHorns And Halos Spinefarm (2013)Rating: 8.5/10 “Coulda been, woulda been, shoulda been dead” croons Helsinki rock god Michael Monroe on his eagerly anticipated eighth studio outing, Horns And Halos. As expected, it’s another gem of a record that combines that smooth-toned swagger, glam rock stomp and punky attitude with a spring of sexy sax […]
