Lullabies For The Dormant Mind is easily on of the most beautiful, well constructed melodic death metal albums you will have heard in a long time. It’s also a total surprise release, given how mediocre the band’s debut album, Once Only Imagined was. The Agonist have released their second full length, and what a release it is. Blending some tough as nails music and vocals with beautiful choruses, singing, and often gothic-oriented artistic lyrics and musical moments, this release is sure to please anyone looking for something different amongst the flood of similar sounding bands.
After about ten years without an official release, aside one demo in 1990, Faith Or Fear have returned to bring their brand of old school thrash and cram it down your throat with their new compilation/full length release, Instruments Of Death. The reason this is being mentioned as a compilation instead of a full blown studio recorded full length album is because the material on this release is not new, aside the first four tracks being re-recorded versions of demo tracks. However, for the die hard fans of this band, or those who just want to hear some good thrash, Instruments Of Death does not disappoint.
From The Cradle To Enslave is a six song EP released by Cradle Of Filth that two newly recorded tracks, two covers, and two different mixes of already released songs. This release, however, is perhaps one of their most well-known releases, as it really bridges the gap towards the musical style, and albums, that made them a household name in metal.

Annihilator seems to have been dabbling around in the Groove Metal style now for a little while, showing a serious attempt with All For You. However, with Schizo Deluxe, much of the heavy Groove aspect has been removed, bringing us a rather intense thrash assault with only lingering traces of their previous album in the air.
One of the bands you wouldn’t expect to pull any sort of maneuver to try to earn your hard earned money for, really, no reason at all would have to be this one. Skullage, which is pretty much just a waste of cash on a circular piece of plastic by Black Label Society is really one of the biggest insults to it’s fans that have followed his career. But, for those who haven’t, is it really such a big rip off?
