Ahead of the Game - BARCODE

I suppose there was not enough room on the Nuclear Blast roster for two traditional hardcore bands, so Denmark's BARCODE went after releasing a slamming album called "Showdown" and AGNOSTIC FRONT stayed. Now on Italy's Scarlet Records, BARCODE returns with its fifth album, "Ahead of the Game", a meaner, if somewhat less memorable, disc than ...

The Black Flame - WOLF

When WOLF first came onto the scene, their self-titled album cover sported a freaky-looking lupine fella, sort of a denim-and-leather Disco Stu as imagined by Maurice Sendak. Musically, the band stuck out like a fistful of sore thumbs, too — the power metal revival was kicking into high gear, but many of its Johnny-come-lately practitioners ...

Artisans of Cruelty - OCTAGON

A delightful romp through lo-fi U.S. black metal, heavy on the sadomasochism, misogyny and good old-fashioned violence. This is that bottom-of-the-trashcan stuff you either love or hate, with almost comically bad vocals and sub-basement production, but OCTAGON manage to be creepily compelling in their orgy of primal lust and murder. Musically, OCTAGON capture the off-the-rails ...
