Review: Iced Out's Man's Ruin

Durham sludgecore nihilists Iced Out have returned for another short burst of down-tuned filth with the release of their third EP, Man’s Ruin. The band’s previous EP Jukai began to show elements of a slower, lurching song style that has more in common with sludge metal than hardcore and Iced Out have made a much bigger step into the world of sludge for this EP. 320 more words

Album Review: War Iron - "Precession of the Equinoxes"

The term “heavy” is incredibly subjective. Each individual interprets it differently, depending on their personal tastes not just in metal, but also music in general. And yet, more so than in any other qualifier in music it seems, the question of whether an album or artist is  500 more words
