FISCHERSPOONER - Odyssey

By Dan - Rocks In Your Head - 04/05/2005

Okay, admittedly this is not a full, encompassing review. I have neither the time nor the urge to do a full review. So instead, I'll hit you kids up with a two-part review, splitting this new Fischerspooner CD in half. Here goes part 1:

(Get your mofo booty on the dance floor, people!)

That should be the entire review, but I'll flesh it out a little for your reading pleasure.


GHOULUNATICS - Blood Curdling Years (DVD)

By Johnny - Turn Down the Suck - 05/03/2005

GhoulunaticsBlood Curdling Years is the first DVD by a Quebec metal band and it sets the bar high. Containing one full show, half of another, bits of 60 others, two videos, lots of photos, and a slew of backstage/behind the scenes/making of/on the road/etc footage, this disc delivers both quantity and quality.


PUNGENT STENCH - Ampeauty

By Brendan O'Flaherty - Catatonia Shall Prevail - 02/22/2005

Over a decade ago, when death metal as a genre was in desperate need of something fresh and original, Pungent Stench provided something simultaneously brutal, fast, funny, sick, perverted and groovy to enthrall us with. Well, the perverted Austrians are at it again and they continue to excel at conceiving art that’s both sick and fetishistic with this new platter of sludgy death n’ roll, cleverly titled Ampeauty.


KREATOR - Enemy Of God

By Korgull The Destroyer - Metal for Supper - The Afternoon Edition - 01/11/2005

Kreator seem to have given up on experimenting with their sound and have once again opted for the straightforward thrash metal style that they are known for. You can decide for yourself if this is a good thing or not, but bottom line is that it worked very well for them on Violent Revolution and it has worked for them once again with their latest album, Enemy of God.


HIGH ON FIRE - Blessed Black Wings

By Robot - No Sleep Til Bedtime - 02/01/2005

I thought I’d better review this one before somebody else at CJLO does, ‘cause it’s looking like it’s gonna be the hottest record in the Metal department for at least a month, and I bet at least a few rock/punk/alt shows will be playing it (I can name names).


IMMORTAL - Sons of Northern Darkness

By Alex Robot - No Sleep Til Bedtime

For the record, CJLO’s Korgull the Destroyer (from Metal for Supper, Thursdays 2-4pm) bought this album when it first came out. I mercilessly made fun of both him AND the three corpse-painted clowns on the cover, brandishing medieval weapons and spiky armor. I knew these guys had a killer rep, but I assumed it was similar to the praise lavished on the over-rated Burzums of the Black Metal world, guys who are more renowned for their gimmicks and criminal records than their music.


PIG DESTROYER - Terrifyer
