After a small line-up change, Adrenaline Mob is back with their second album. And how better to announce this, than starting your new album with an opener song which says exactly the same. Read all about that here..
Morbus Chron has surpassed the musical limits of their first full length effort, Sleepers In the Rift. A fairly straightforward and well-liked old school death metal record. With their sophomore record, Sweven, this Swedish quartet enters territory that often only veteran bands venture into after an X amount of years in service: the post/progressive side of the metal. Away from the defined genres and breaking new ground.. Read all!
Hero A Capella Metal. A lot of you probably don’t know what to expect from that. I will leave the neverending discussion about if metal “needs” guitars to be true metal for now and focus on this album that I have listened to quite a bit. The new Van Canto is out and it seems more diverse than ever.. Read all!

Clear is the latest release by Washington D.C based metal band Periphery. This EP features a ground breaking concept that I think is genius. Each of the group’s six members wrote their own song from composition to production. This concept gives the album diversity that provides a high-quality soundtrack for listeners that appreciate music.. Read all!
Nephelium – Coils of Entropy
Releasedate: 7 February 2012
Nephelium was formed in 2001 in Dubai but they moved to Toronto, Canada, a number of years ago. The band is still unsigned but they will release this self-released full-length. From what I’ve heard, they deliver quality brutal death metal, so let’s check it out.
The six songs all take 5 to 10 minutes, which is pretty long for my taste. You can find some good complex riffs here and there but none of the songs really stand out to the others, really. What they do is pretty good, but they keep repeating it song after song. Most parts of the songs consists of mid-tempo riffs and some complex riffs and breaks here and there. The plus sides are the vocals and the solos. The vocals are a little bit similiar to the vocals of Abysmal Torment. And the solos are pretty fast and melodic. They stand out to most other riffs because the rythms miss a thick and heavy sound.
Coils of Entropy is an allright brutal death metal record. Nice solos, some good complex riffs and brutal but uncommon vocals. But on the otherhand, the songs are pretty long. The structures become unclear and the songs sound more or less thesame because of that. No riffs really stand out afterwards. A heavier production would have helped as well.
