Gruesome – Dimensions Of Horror Review

If nothing else, the Dimensions of Horror EP, the latest release from the Matt Harvey-led semi-super group/Death tribute act Gruesome, proves that Savage Land was not a one-off affair. Is Gruesome going to be a

Dream Death – Dissemination Review

In 2013, Dream Death issued its sophomore album, Somnium Excessum, twenty-six years after its cult classic debut, Journey into Mystery. In a comparative blink of an eye, album number three, Dissemination, has arrived, proving that

As the story goes, former Mercyful Fate guitarists Michael Denner and Hank Shermann got together a few times in the past couple years to record YouTube videos celebrating the thirtieth anniversaries of Mercyful Fate’s first

Black Breath – Slaves Beyond Death Review

When I reviewed Black Breath’s last record, Sentenced to Life, I expressed some disappointment with its relative brevity in both individual track lengths and overall run-time. I felt like I didn’t get my full Black

Pentagram – Curious Volume Review

Pentagram’s 2011 album, Last Rites, had the air of a miracle about it. Singer Bobby Liebling, after decades of drug abuse, somehow cleaned himself up and managed to convince estranged guitarist Victor Griffin to rejoin the
