Accept - All Areas – Worldwide
Review by Gary Hill
This is a new reissue of an older live album.

More
Aerial School - Love is Calling
Review by Gary Hill
These guys really manage to pull a classic hard rock sound into a metal styled territory.

Aina - Days of Rising Doom-The Metal Opera
Review by Mike Korn
On the surface, the worlds of heavy metal and opera would appear to have little in common. But dig deep and you will find a lot of common threads binding the two musical genres.
More
Akercocke - Choronzon
Review by Mike Korn
They say the Devil has the best music, but judging by the sartorial sense of Britain's Akercocke, he also has a pretty good wardrobe. Instead of opting for the usual spiked leather and chains, these fellows favor smartly tailored three-piece suits while engaging in their blasphemy.

Alcatrazz - No Parole from Rock ‘N’ Roll
Review by Gary Hill
This act not only featured Graham Bonnet on vocals, but also Yngwie Malmsteen on guitar

More
Alcatrazz - Live Sentence
Review by Gary Hill
Recorded live in 1984, this includes both the CD and a DVD of this concert and a shorter bonus show.

More
Alcatrazz - Disturbing the Peace
Review by Gary Hill
This new edition of a a classic Alcatrazz album is great.


More
Alcatrazz - Dangerous Games
Review by Gary Hill
This new reissue from Alcatrazz is cool. It includes the studio album that is a strong mainstream rocker.

More
Alcatrazz - The Ultimate Fortress Rock Set
Review by Gary Hill
This is  a massive box set from Alcatrazz. The band was essential Graham Bonnet's vehicle after his time in Rainbow.

More
Alchemist - Organasm
Review by Mike Korn
It may sound like a hoary cliche, but this is one of those records that comes along only once in a great while. From the far shores of Australia, Alchemist are truly one of the most original heavy metal bands I've heard.
More
Amaranthe - The Nexus
Review by Gary Hill
This is a pretty strong album.

More
Angel Witch - Resurrection
Review by Mike Korn
Just how many albums are there called “Resurrection”? I've already got Halford's “Resurrection” as well as Venom's. Are Milli Vanilli going to be coming out with a “Resurrection” album soon?
More
Angra - Rebirth
Review by Mike Korn
Most associate Brazil with Sepultura and Krisiun, but Angra proves that there's more to the land of the Amazon than nu-metal bashing and screaming death metal. Angra is a long-running progressive/melodic heavy metal band that has carved a fair little niche for itself.
More
Annihilator - Carnival Diablos
Review by Arnold Hablewitz
Honestly, I've enjoyed all of the offerings that have come from Jeff Waters and co. They all are unique in their own way, yet they are all so closely related to each other that you can instantly tell two things…number 1, that it is definitely an Annihilator record, and number 2, that Jeff prefers to stay true to his thrash metal roots.
More
Annihilator - Feast
Review by Mike Korn
Jeff Waters and Annihilator have had the epitome of an up and down career.

More
Annihilator - Feast (Deluxe Three Disc Version)
Review by Gary Hill
This is an amazing set.

More
Anthrax - Among The Living
Review by Patrick Hennen
I realize that this is an older disc, released in 1990. However, with the reunion of this powerful lineup for this year's tour, I had to say something about them.
More
Carmine & Vinnie Appice - Drum Wars Live
Review by Gary Hill
This live recording definitely lands under metal because most of the music fits.

More
Arch Enemy - Wages of Sin
Review by Mike Korn
They say anticipation makes the heart grow fonder. If that's the case, metal fans should be looking forward to the latest Arch Enemy record Wages of Sin" with unmatched adoration.
More
Armored Saint - Win Hands Down
Review by Mike Korn
You can make a pretty strong case that Armored Saint is the great American metal band.

More
Astral Doors - Evil Is Forever
Review by Gary Hill
When you review CD's like I do, you get to hear a lot of new music. The law of averages would tell you that only a handful will be terrible, and only a handful will be spectacular.
More
Atkins / May Project - Empire of Destruction
Review by Gary Hill
The third album from this outfit, this is quite strong. I’d have to say that for me personally, the previous disc was better.

More
Atkins / May Project - Anthology
Review by Gary Hill
This is quite a cool set. The group is Al Atkins (the original lead singer of Judas Priest) and Paul May (musician extraordinaire).

More
Al Atkins - Reloaded
Review by Gary Hill
Al Atkins is probably best known as the original singer for Judas Priest. You can find his name on some of the early Priest albums as one of the writers of a number of their songs.

More
Atreyu - The Curse
Review by Josh Turner
Atreyu is one of the hottest bands in Nu Metal. With The Curse, they release an album that is completely on fire. They accomplish something very few bands are capable of achieving.
More
Autumn Rest - Poems From the Fire
Review by Gary Hill
Autumn Rest is Chad Belteau, Kevin Belteau, and Joey Landry. This release combines very diverse elements, being the first release that I have heard that mixes progressive rock themes with the stylings of such performers as Nine Inch Nails. This album is certainly not for every progressive rock fan, but for the more adventurous, (who are looking for something new), it should be a pleasant change of pace.
