Welcome to the Pit!
.... Antigama - The Insolent
There is plenty to admire in how the group operates while diving headlong into the chaos which follows the subgenre ruled by Napalm Death and others, but the experimental elements are a wonderful touch. - Read the full Antigama - The Insolent review

.... Temple of Dagon - Revelations of the Spirit
It would make sense for Lovecraftian horrors to first invade California when the thin membrane of reality collapses and gives way to eternal suffering and enslavement at the hands of the Great Old Ones. - Read the full Temple of Dagon - Revelations of the Spirit review

.... Whyzdom - Symphony For a Hopeless God
Whyzdom is playing familiar territory here, though on a dwindling source of bewilderment. There is a new vocalist-traded out between albums in typical Whyzdom fashion, as though singer swaps happen at the rate of oil changes. - Read the full Whyzdom - Symphony For a Hopeless God review

.... Necrowretch - With Serpents Scourge
Necrowretch's take on the death/black metal scheme is superior to others attempting the union due in part to the band's ability to take the evil and the filth of both sounds and make them seemingly one and the same. - Read the full Necrowretch - With Serpents Scourge review

.... Ilium - My Misanthropia
Lance King sounds tremendous, and the instrumental competency of the group is outstanding, but the songs drop and rise at a pace that is too erratic to make "My Misanthropia" the album it could have been. - Read the full Ilium - My Misanthropia review

.... The Sanity Days - Evil Beyond Belief
The routine here runs on basic heavy metal, despite catering to the notion that this is somehow a continuation of "In Search of Sanity" given the band name and the members involved, all of whom once had a stint in Onslaught. - Read the full The Sanity Days - Evil Beyond Belief review

.... Macabre Omen - Gods of War - At War
As tremendous as it is, "Gods of War - At War" was built to come out triumphant and epic, but not plumped up to its eyeballs in unnecessary additives, which, these days, is a rare feat. 10 out of 10! - Read the full Macabre Omen - Gods of War - At War review

.... Kamelot - Haven
The courteous and honorable men of Kamelot showed the world they still had more than enough in the tank to continue pounding out top-tier opuses of power metal on "Silverthorn," which was an astounding achievement. - Read the full Kamelot - Haven review

.... Demonical - Black Flesh Redemption
The four-song "Black Flesh Redemption" EP does the usual Demonical shindig, delivering a summary of the band's style in just a hair over seventeen minutes. - Read the full Demonical - Black Flesh Redemption review

.... Trial - Vessel
Don't let this wonderful surprise, no doubt one of 2015's finest records, slip away under the tidal wave of vapid metal albums pretending to have a tenth of the quality of "Vessel." - Read the full Trial - Vessel review

.... Sons of Crom - Riddle of Steel
Riddle of Steel" is something extraordinary. Sons of Crom, this Swedish duo taking after the gods of epic heavy metal, is to this current age of metal what The Aeneid is to Fifty Shades of Grey. - Read the full Sons of Crom - Riddle of Steel review

.... Morgoth - Ungod
Morgoth joins countless death metal bands that were once dead but now walk the earth as revenants. The least I can say about "Ungod" is that it does not suck. - Read the full Morgoth - Ungod review

.... Ranger - Where Evil Dwells
I don't need to consult Dr. Phil to understand why I adore Ranger's "Where Evil Dwells." This type of raw, ravishing speed metal drools with feverish riffs and psychotic intensity through vocals which gnaw with wild tenacity. - Read the full Ranger - Where Evil Dwells review

.... Dragonforce - Maximum Overload
Overall, "Maximum Overload" is a Dragonforce album without the dumb fun or the sugary goodness of some of their other works. Instead, it's a snapshot of a band that is out of ideas and whose creativity has mostly devoured itself. - Read the full Dragonforce - Maximum Overload review

.... Angelus Apatrida - Hidden Evolution
I'm certain there is research in an esteemed academic journal somewhere indicating a strong correlation between newfangled thrash metal bands and keeling over on a piece of furniture out of sheer boredom. - Read the full Angelus Apatrida - Hidden Evolution review

.... Trident - Shadows
Trident is able to back up its talk on this four-song EP of authentic, grade-A blasphemy. "Shadows" is a rare piece of death/black metal that knows what it is and what it wants to be. - Read the full Trident - Shadows review

.... Agathocles and Satanic Malfuctions Split
Both bands give equal performances to make this split a winner. Neither group makes a case to be outrageously bold, nor do the songs throw a creative curveball at the listener, but the substance is here, and nothing else matters - Read the full Agathocles and Satanic Malfuctions Split review
