Death Magnetic
Review by Mike Korn
Has the hour of redemption arrived for Metallica? Or is it too late for them to reclaim their crown as the reigning kings of heavy metal?

Hard Wired...To Self Destruct
Review by Mike Korn
Plagued by over a decade of rather tepid heavy metal, Metallica made a strong push to reclaim some of their glory on their last album “Death Magnetic” and did a reasonable job of it.

Master of Puppets
Review by Greg Olma
The year was 1986.  Although thrash metal was already a few years old, Metallica really brought it into the mainstream with Master of Puppets.

Various Artists - Alternate Endings: Compilation of The End Records Artists
Review by Mike Korn
 If record labels have personalities like people, then The End records can be compared to the eccentric cousin who swears a lot and acts tough but has a secret soft side and an intellectual bent. That's the impression I get from seeing the diversity of artists on this off-the-wall label.

Heart - Beautiful Broken
Review by G. W. Hill

This new disc from Heart is an interesting one. It includes several brand new songs along with a lot of revisits to old songs from the band.

Ozzy Osbourne - Down To Earth
Review by Gary Hill
Quite a few critics have said that the strength of this album is the fact that it doesn't waver from Ozzy's tried and true style, and that fact establishes a musical reliability in a sea of changing music. Well, this reviewer for one thinks that they must not have really listened to this album.

Voi Vod - Katorz
Review by Mike Korn
Elsewhere in this edition of MSJ, we took a look at Rebel Meets Rebel, a project of the late Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell Abbott. Now we turn to the last output of another innovative guitarist who tragically passed away at a young age, Dennis "Piggy" D'amour of Voi Vod.

Dream Theater - Master Of Puppets
Review by Greg Olma
From the beginning, Dream Theater always gave the fans something special. When they go out on tour, if they have a 2 night stay at any venue, the second night becomes “cover” night.

Review by Gary Hill
The latest CD from Beatallica, this is perhaps not as consistent as the previous one.

I’m a big fan of Deep Purple, particularly the classic stuff.

Beatallica - Sgt. Hetfield's Motorbreath Pub Band
Review by Gary Hill
What would happen if Metallica were a Beatles cover band? The result would be Beatallica and this album is proof of that.

Various Artists - The Merciless Book of Metal Lists written by Howie Abrams and Sacha Jenkins
Review by G. W. Hill

I suppose how you feel about this book has a lot to do with how seriously you take it.

Magma - To Life, Death and Beyond: The Music of Magma DVD
Review by Gary Hill

Given that the music of Magma is set in their own language, it seems appropriate that most people will need captions on for this film.

Voi Vod - Voi Vod
Review by Mike Korn
Voi Vod has always stood apart from the crowd. The French-Canadian mutants have been offering their own warped version of cybermetal since the early 80's and their crushing debut "War and Pain".

Review by Larry Toering

This is the first time Ian Gillan and Tony Iommi have done any recording on the same project since 2006 when Iommi guested on Gillan's Inn, a career retrospective dual disc of re-recorded classics of Gillan's.

An expanded set based on the concept and charity involved with the original single, this double disc set has some great stuff.
