Welcome to the Pit!
.... Necrodeath - The 7 Deadly Sins
"The 7 Deadly Sins" is, needless to say, as tight and fulfilling a record as Necrodeath's knowledge and abilities within the sector of their black/death/thrash metal style will allow. - Read the full Necrodeath - The 7 Deadly Sins review

.... Sanctuary - The Year The Sun Died
A staunch continuation of the Nevermore sound, this is a fairly underwhelming experience that adds just a smidge of relevancy to the Sanctuary brand, an album based more on a few prime moments than its actual songs. - Read the full Sanctuary - The Year The Sun Died review

.... Anubis Gate - Horizons
Quality records have been the law for Anubis Gate. Silently and without much to-do they have coughed up a number of enjoyable releases without dropping the ball over singer swaps and the general grind of time. - Read the full Anubis Gate - Horizons review

.... Culted - Oblique to All Paths
Riffs that churn slowly are recurrently strewn over strange black metal parts lurking deep in the chasm of "Oblique to All Paths," while samples and feedback augment this forlorn world to make it feel uneasy and calamitous. - Read the full Culted - Oblique to All Paths review

.... Horned Almighty - World of Tombs
"World of Tombs" is perfectly listenable, sure. The problem I have with it is that it is so conservative, so foreseeable, so willing to take the easy way out when things get hairy. - Read the full Horned Almighty - World of Tombs review

.... Virgin Steele - Invictus
Is the last bite as good as the first? Well, "Invictus" has the decency to rightfully accept its place as the weakest chapter in Virgin Steele's three-part "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell" saga. - Read the full Virgin Steele - Invictus review

.... Striker - City of Gold
The style and general execution are commonplace, but Striker's focus is on unloading a good time of heavy metal without trend-whoring their dignity to death. "City of Gold" is solid as steel, nothing like the run-of-the-mill plastic crap. - Read the full Striker - City of Gold review

.... Mayhem - Esoteric Warfare
"Esoteric Warfare" is in its own little world-one owned by Mayhem, of course. The big elephant in the room is the departure of Blasphemer, who proved to be an integral part in the band's creative avenues during his tenor. - Read the full Mayhem - Esoteric Warfare review

.... Virgin Steele - The Marriage of Heaven and Hell - Part One
"Part One" is a masterpiece, no debate. And you know what? This isn't even Virgin Steele's best album. From its whispers to its screams, "Part One" is as good as it gets. - Read the full Virgin Steele - The Marriage of Heaven and Hell - Part One review

.... Portrait - Crossroads
The Swedes know how to do heavy metal-no big secret there. "Crossroads" is heavy metal at its absolute best and a superb moment in the evolution of this wonderful band. A masterpiece? You better believe it. - Read the full Portrait - Crossroads review

.... Elvenking - The Pagan Manifesto
"The Pagan Manifesto," in some ways, changes the game for Elvenking. I'm not going to call the record a masterpiece, because it's not, but clearly there were huge improvements in nearly every category that needed work. - Read the full Elvenking - The Pagan Manifesto review

.... Morgoth - God is Evil 7 Inch
"God is Evil" lives up to its name. Eight minutes of solid, wicked, blitzing death metal cooked to bring out some serious neck injury and old-school carnage. A nice sample, but we want the whole meal! - Read the full Morgoth - God is Evil 7 Inch review

.... Excel - Split Image
Big on the thrash metal/crossover motifs of Suicidal Tendencies, Cro-Mags, D.R.I., and Cryptic Slaughter, "Split Image" created ample room for Excel to stand up next to the big boys - Read the full Excel - Split Image review

.... Septicflesh - A Fallen Temple
Three brilliant songs and unnecessarily redone oldies. That's the story of "A Fallen Temple": from excellent to excessive, debatably redundant; a bit of a weird one. Nice Paradise Lost cover, though. - Read the full Septicflesh - A Fallen Temple review

.... Pilgrim - II: Void Worship
Plodding, monotonous doom numbers crammed alongside FOUR useless instrumental tunes stack up to almost forty-five minutes of these American doomsters asleep at the wheel. - Read the full Pilgrim - II: Void Worship review

.... Death - Leprosy
The great thing about "Leprosy" is that it's not necessarily the seminal Death album, but for several reasons the seminal Death album of a certain era of the group when the band was undoubtedly at its peak. - Read the full Death - Leprosy review

.... Hail Spirit Noir - Oi Magoi
Lightning strikes twice for these Greek magicians, and I'm rather fond of visiting the land of "Oi Magoi," where the non sequiturs make a frightening amount of sense and the cogs of perdition tick, tick, tick on clocks. - Read the full Hail Spirit Noir - Oi Magoi review
