It is like a heavy metal art project
Imagine if Dave Matthews suddenly got way into Black Sabbath
I love female vocals paired with heavy guitars
Imagine Rage Against The Machine reincarnated as three teenagers from New Zealand
This is the most I’ve ever spent on a record
A sing-a-long metal album with country heart and soul.
The soundtrack to a late-night rave in Gotham City just before Batman shows up.
Sing out “Hail Satan!” and frighten your neighbors.
This record honestly feels like a group of Disney-style pirates learned to play rock guitars and write songs about their sailings on the salty seas
This is not an album of sing-a-longs; it is prog-rock.
This record sounds like what Black Sabbath could have evolved into if Ozzy had stayed clean and the 80s never happened.
Heavy, dark, growling black metal. This record is full of anger and angst and rage.
As for Volbeat’s style, it cannot easily be put into a simple category. They are power pop punk rockabilly metal.
There is a lightheartedness to the music that makes it great to turn up loud and lose yourself in the 80s glam.
The Stage sounds like Andrew Lloyd Webber dropped acid, went to a Rush concert, and decided to hire metal musicians to play the soundtrack to his drug-induced visions.
It is the type of album that you listen to with your friends while wearing black t-shirts and playing pool in a smoke-filled basement with that one overweight girl there in the corner because she just wants to be included.
This EP is an amazing tribute to a fan.
Popestar sounds like nothing else in music right now.
It sounds like the soundtrack to a heavy metal haunted house.
It is doom metal lite: all the evil, half the calories.
Maria Brink’s vocals go from softly singing to violently screaming quickly and seamlessly.
Unden!able is hard, fast, pounding metal. It is the type of album that I’d want spinning in the weight room when I played football in high school.
If you like Korn, Disturbed, and early Staind you will like this album.
It is a fun listen because Ghost really sucks you into their thematic theatrical arena and makes you feel as though the Crowned Princes of Hell are preparing to come out of your speakers……..or something like that.
There is a technicality to Trivium’s brand of rock n roll that appeals to the guitar magazine reading music geek while also being inviting to the casual metal fan.
Lo-fi, raw, make your grandma say a prayer for you black metal
This isn’t an EP that I’ll put on to relax
If Rush did the soundtrack for Phantom of the Opera it would sound like Meliora from Ghost.
