The Tossers

Just before 2013's Saint Patrick's day, the most important Irish holiday, The Tossers step forward with the release of their eight studio album, The Emerald City, referring to their hometown, Chicago. It's no doubt that they both love their roots in Ireland and their current home. They're very clear about that as the fifth song on the record is simply called USA and immediately after that, we have the track simply called Saint Patrick's Day.

Tear Out The Heart

With the release of Violence by Tear Out The Heart from Saint Louis, USA, Victory Records returns to what they were doing seven or eight years ago: releasing the most valuable American hardcore and metalcore records. Just think of the early years of A Day To Remember. The label really set that band on their way for world domination.

Jungle Rot

Founders of the death metal scene in the beginning of the 1990's, Jungle Rot from the USA just released their eight full-length through Victory Records, called Terror Regime. Terror Regime sounds like it takes you through a cruel horror movie as if it's a roller coaster ride through a butcher's house. The quality songwriting of Jungle Rot proves to be the key to the death metal lock once again. Every song stands on its own and is a real banger.

Emergency Gate

Emergency Gate is a Modern Melodic-Death/Metalcore Band from Munich. The band was founded somewhere during 1996, but the only member remaining from the original line-up is bass-player and manager Mario Lochert. As a name the band had picked "Emergency Gate" because of the free advertisement by emergency gate signs everywhere.

Infernal Tenebra

New Formed Revelations is the third album by Croatian four-piece Infernal Tenebra. The band was able to have this material mixed and mastered by top-producer Jens Bogren at his Fascination Street Studio (think: Turisaz, Amon Amarth, Be’lakor, Borknagar, Paradise Lost, Gwyllion and many more), which attests the full, great sound.This album has nothing to do with Black Metal anymore.


Gylve ‘Fenriz’ Nagell and Ted ‘Nocturno Culto’ Skjellum return with album # 666, and what strikes me as from the very first moment: six songs only for a total duration of forty two minutes. Why not?...

The Underground Resistance was recorded in two years and is the most logical Darkthrone record seen their permanent progression. Everything is Old School, yet the variety is enormous. However, this band’s characterising trademarks are present in every single detail.

Aeon Zen

Aeon Zen with this album ‘Enigma’ are on their third release.  Mastermind behind Aeon Zen  is multi-talented, multi- instrumental Rich Hinks, whom not only wrote all the songs, but also did the mixing and the production, as well as playing some of the instruments, and to top it of did some of the vocals as well.


Punchline was, or rather is, a well hidden treasure, consisting of Thomas Franke (ex U.D.O.) and Jôrg Juraschek (Warrant) who over a lengthy period of time concocted these 11 songs (+ intro). As third band member Matthias Zimmer (Perzonal War) on guitars was integrated into the band.

The Last Vegas

Despite their name, this band does not originate from the Sin City, but have their roots in Chicago, and this is their first full-length album recorded in their native town.  The band was formed in 2005, and some time later Môtley Crûe bassist Nikki Six grew interested in them, and gave them the opportunity to release an album on his own label.

Title Fight

Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania has always been the breeding ground for many hardcore punk bands. Just think of Cold World, Stick Together, Dead End Path and many others. After some European tours, an American tour supporting Rise Against and countless shows across the American nation, Title Fight released their third full-length, called Floral Green.
