Paradigm In Entropy - BLEED THE SKY

This one surprised me. I was expecting the latest bland metalcore signing to capitalize on the genre's popularity. Well, it's not bland anyway. "Paradigm in Entropy" is a hard smack in the mouth. I suppose you can call it metalcore, but as far as I'm concerned, it's just modern extreme metal. The sound falls somewhere ...

The Design - INTO THE MOAT

Behind that ugly-even-for-Metal-Blade artwork lies one snarling evil genius of a record! INTO THE MOAT is more of a science experiment gone awry than a band (see: SPIRAL ARCHITECT, DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, Canada's MARTYR, and throw in tangential influence everywhere from ATHEIST to GORGUTS to MESHUGGAH to MR. BUNGLE). And while the "laundry list of ...

Only In Amerika - HED P.E.

But on the other hand, what HED has to say on its ...
