Band: Metallica Album: Hardwired… To Self-Destruct Label: Blackened Recordings Genre: Thrash Metal/Hard Rock Country: United States Release Date: November 18, 2016 If there’s a household name in metal, look no further than the band Metallica. The Los Angeles-based thrashers have been releasing albums since 1983 with their ground-breaking record Kill ‘Em All, and haven’t slowed down much since.

Sonata Arctica – The Ninth Hour Review

Posted on: November 20th, 2016 | by

Band: Sonata Arctica Album:  The Ninth Hour Label: Nuclear Blast Records Genre: Symphonic Power Metal Country: Finland Release Date: October 7, 2016 The Ninth Hour marks Sonata Arctica’s fifth album since their monumental album, “Reckoning Night”.

Opeth – Sorceress Review

Posted on: October 30th, 2016 | by

Band: Opeth Album: Sorceress Label: Nuclear Blast, Moderbolaget Genre: Progressive Rock/Metal Country: Sweden Release Date: September 30th, 2016 First, you have to ask yourself: “How do I listen to Opeth?” Or maybe it won’t matter.
