Reviews, Interviews, and Podcasts concerning the best Extreme Metal music


  • Stormkeep – Tales of Othertime
    I was inspired to write this review after seeing the mighty Wayfarer (Stormkeep’s main band) in Lincoln, Nebraska on the final night of their US tour with Sonja. I was completely enamored with this album…
  • 7 EPs to listen to
    Was very hard to only pick 7…
  • In Vain – Solemn Review
    2024 continues to be the year that just gives and gives, at least relating to music. In Vain’s most recent opus, Solemn is the latest (and possibly greatest) incredible gift we’ve been given this year….
  • ADON – Adon Review
    I normally don’t do “new” album reviews as I like to focus on music that people may have overlooked or has gotten panned a bit unfairly. I made an exception with ADON and their self…
  • Eternal Storm – A Giant Bound to Fall Review
    Do I love long-form songs? Yes. Do I love Post-black melodies with minimal (but solid) clean singing and death metal growls? Obviously. That’s my bread and butter when it comes to music, and few are…
  • Nevermore – Dead Heart in a Dead World
    This review was suggested by a friend (Kim Gordon, this ones for you) and it instantly made me wonder why I had not thought about doing this before. I absolutely adore this band and especially…
  • Saidan – Onryo II : Her Spirit Eternal
    This album came out of nowhere for me and it has been a favorite ever since. Could even be why the podcast and this very website exist. Justin and I became friends over our mutual…
  • Mycorrhizae – The Great Filtration
    “I interlace, nourish all I’m playing in the sun”
  • Knoll – As Spoken Review
    2024 is shaping up to be the year of incredible chaotic albums. What exactly do I mean by that? – I mean albums that are full of unexpected melody changes, violent mood changes, and horns…
  • Void Ceremony – Threads of Unknowing
    “The despair in which a being experiences life is only through temporal passage.”
  • Gudsforladt – Friendship, Love and War
    “I’ll die smiling. On the ship to Valinor.”
  • Kreator – Endorama
    “Endorama” by Kreator, released in 1999, is a massive change from the band’s Thrash Metal roots, showcasing a more experimental and atmospheric approach. The album is a bold exploration of a different musical direction, incorporating…
  • Anthrax – The Sound of White Noise
    When I was thinking about what reviews I would do for Harsh Vocals, I thought I would focus on albums that may have not have gotten the attention they deserved and that new(ish) metal heads…
  • Yoth Iria – As The Flame Withers
    This album was my number one album of 2021 and it was on a lot of end of year lists that year, but I still can’t help but feel Heavy Metal fans overall overlooked it….
  • Upon Stone – Dead Mother Moon Review
    First of all, this album absolutely RIPS – a somewhat cheesy statement for sure, but listen and you’ll see that it’s TRUE. Dead Mother Moon is a very succinct Melodic Death album, featuring 9 awesome…
  • Necropohobic – Hrimthursum
    The review section of this blog is going to be a bit different from most websites (at least the ones I write at least). I want to focus more on albums that the wider Heavy…
