XIBALBA - Diablo, Con Amor… Adios EP Review


Xibalba - Diablo, Con Amor… Adios EP (Closed Casket Activities)
Release date : February 17th, 2017

The release of their full length Tierra Y Libertad last year showcased their mastery at merging Hardcore and Metal together was well received. To some, they sounded a lot like Hatebreed. The comparison isn’t false but Xibalba has more Metal in their song structures than the aforementioned band and less cheesy moments. One year later, they are now releasing a three songs EP Diablo, Con Amor… Adios with the songs ‘’Diablo’’, ‘’Con Amor’’, and ‘’Adios’’.

YITH - Dread Review


Yith - Dread (Hellthrasher Productions / Vendetta Records)
Release date: February 10th, 2017

The first full-length from Yith, is a cold slab of hopeless black/doom that continues the project’s exploration of darkness, fear and grief. With haunting melodies and lyrical inspiration coming from the pages of M.R. James and H.P. Lovecraft, „Dread” tries to pull the listener into a bleak abyss of endless horror.

CZAR - Life Is No Way To Treat An Animal Review


Czar - Life Is No Way To Treat An Animal (Self-released)
Release date : January 20th, 2017

Of all the things that I love in my life being critical is one of those things I don’t get bored with easily. Sometimes, in album reviews, you already know how the music is going to sound and how you are going to write those few lines trying to point its better and weaker elements. Other times you get a real challenge and even genre description won’t even help you trying to make out of what you have listened. The case of Czar and their full length album Life Is No Way To Treat An Animal is of the later kind.

ASHENSPIRE - Speak Not Of The Laudanum Quandary Review


Ashenspire - Speak Not Of The Laudanum Quandary (2017, Code666)
Release date : January 20th, 2017

Lately, we have been receiving promo from the label Code666 and we have been mostly impressed by their quality and their variety of offerings; Aenaon and Terra are two of the albums we reviewed on this blog. Avant-garde Metal band Ashenspire formed in 2013 in the United Kingdom are the latest to be released on Code666. Mixing the speed of both Primordial and Ved Buens Ende with a vision that’s closer to Dodheimsgard and Arcturus, Ashenspire might have created the most theatrical record to have moved this critic for a long time.

HEAVY BABY SEA SLUGS - Teenage Graveyard Party EP Review


Heavy Baby Sea Slugs - Teenage Graveyard Party EP (2017, Heavy Baby Records)
Release date : January 21st, 2017

Recorded as a companion CD to their Japan/Taiwan tour in January 2017, Heavy Baby Sea Slugs’ EP Teenage Graveyard Party sounds like a business card where the band presents itself as a Sludge/Punk American band that isn’t afraid to get to experimental places.

UNDRASK - Battle Through Time Review


Undrask - Battle Through Time (2017, Self-released)
Release date : January 27th, 2017

Melodic Death Metal isn’t our cup of tea around here on LMDM and the last two records we reviewed earned each a 7.0 rating. Which is not bad at all if you look at the rating system on your right. However, it takes a lot for the genre to wow us especially since the golden age of Melo Death back with the early albums of In Flames, Dark Tranquility, At The Gates, and Darkest Hour. In fact, Melodic metal isn’t our forte but we know when an album will make history or not. Let’s see if North Carolina’s Undrask’s first LP Battle Through Time is a winner.
