Hellbound Metal: “Alas, while part of me is still pining for the s/t, I’m digging this new direction as well.”
Hellbound Metal: “Halo of Blood isn’t breaking down any new barriers for Children of Bodom but their powerful and thrashy riffage and technicality are presented fully realized. Their flair for the dramatic and intensity while remaining somewhat accessible is a formula fit for pseudo-mainstream success.”
Hellbound Metal: “A wonderful soul-searching blast of heaviness from one of Britain’s greatest metal bands.”
Hellbound Metal: “All the things that make Kylesa Kylesa are still present but the band has shed another layer of skin to expose a deeper sense of self, thus creating a highly dynamic and more sensitive album. The heavier sludge parts exude power and defiance while the more plaintive aspects display vulnerability.’
Hellbound Metal: “Two weeks in a row! That must be some kind of record around here. Truth be told, last night’s show was more of a solo mission than a group effort. Sean was still down in Port Dover, ON celebrating Father’s Day with his pops and Albert is currently on call for a film he is doing extra work on, so this show was done entirely by Mr. Kevi Metal himself. No surprise then that, for the most part, everything on this show is essentially new releases, as KSP likes to keep it current. Anyway, here’s what was heard on last night’s show…”
Hellbound Metal: “It sounds awful, but 13 is not a bad album – it’s simply not the Black Sabbath album that a lot of fans will accept as a rousing return.”
Hellbound Metal: “After 18 years of experience fusing the Gothenburg model with grooves inspired by the classics, Soilwork haven’t lost their touch.”
Hypocrisy aren’t zombies, but their decade-plus career has spawned fantastic music for the Swedish melodic scene.
