Sebastian Bach - Bring 'Em Bach Alive
Review by Brian Angotti
From Skid Row to solo man, Mr. Bach does the transition with great ease. The first new music from Sebastian in years provides the same flair that was once Skid Row. Bring 'em Bach Alive, rightfully titled, is a combination of classic Skid songs mixed with the new.

Bellathrix - Orion
Review by G. W. Hill
This is a female fronted metal band. That said, they also have some strong folk stylings and even work into some prog territory.

The Berzerker - Dissimulate
Review by Mike Korn
Somebody is always trying to push the boundaries of extremity in heavy metal and the Berzerker have succeeded in pushing them right to the brink of the abyss. An enigmatic band of monster-masked mutants from Australia, these weirdos have no individual names: they are ALL known as The Berzerker.

Black Label Society - Hangover Music, Vol. 6
Review by Gary Hill
I have to say, when I got this one for MSJ's coverage of Ozzfest, I never expected to hear what I did. Most of the Ozzfest crew's discs usually tend to be fairly monolithic hard and heavy releases.

Black Sabbath - Volume IV
Review by Gary Hill
I must have a thing for falling in love with over looked albums. Some of my favorite discs in artists' catalogs are the ones that seem to have fallen by the wayside.

Black Sabbath - Never Say Die
Review by Gary Hill
Black Sabbath were arguably the creators of the heavy metal genre, but were never really happy to rest on their laurels for that accomplishment. They generally have pushed the envelope in many ways touching on musical styles which most metal bands consider out of their realm.

Black Sabbath - Technical Ecstasy
Review by Gary Hill
A controversial album for Black Sabbath, this disc found them stretching into new and untried directions. The trademarked Sab metal is still present, but it is joined by other diverse sounds.
More
Black Sabbath - Reunion
Review by Gary Hill
Reunion represents the first performance of all the original members of Black Sabbath as a unit since 1979. The album is a two-disc set that consists of concert recordings from December of 1987 teamed with two new studio cuts. The band is back in all its glory.

Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
Review by Gary Hill
Released in 1969 in the last days of the hippie era, Black Sabbath`s debut had definite roots in what had come before, but was a major change in tone.

Black Sabbath - 13
Review by Mike Korn
Well, it seems like time to tackle this monumental release. Expectations and anticipation for 13 have been so high that a review is a daunting prospect.

Black Sabbath - We Sold Our Soul for Rock 'N' Roll
Review by Gary Hill
There are a lot of Black Sabbath compilation discs out there these days. This was the original.

More
Blackshine - Soulless and Proud
Review by Mike Korn
This is a most interesting release from a band I wasn't really familiar with before. Hailing from Sweden, Blackshine call their music "Goth And Roll" for its mixture of gloominess and raw power.

Blind Guardian - Nightfall in Middle-Earth
Review by Mike Korn

I've heard a lot about the German progressive power metal band Blind Guardian over the years but I've never actually laid ears on this semi-legendary group until now. Thanks go out to Century Media Records for finally making these guys and their records domestically available at prices you can actually afford.

Bloodbath - Resurrection Through Carnage
Review by Mike Korn
Rising from the moldy earth, the corpse of true Swedish death metal refuses to stay dead and buried. Its lust for blood can never be quenched and though it may sometimes slumber beneath the soil, it will always erupt from the grave and stalk human prey.
More
Graham Bonnet - Anthology
Review by Gary Hill
Let's get one thing out of the way right off the bat here: not all of this is heavy metal. I'd say that the bulk of the second disc fits that category.

More
Brazen Abbot - My Resurrection
Review by Greg Olma
This is my first experience with Brazen Abbot. I knew of them because I have always been a Joe Lynn Turner fan but I never heard them.
More
Burnt Out Wreck - Swallow
Review by Gary Hill
This is the new band fronted by Heavy Pettin's drummer Gary Moat. These guys are very much old school hard rock, but I'd say there is enough metal in the mix to keep it real.
