Candlemass - Candlemass
Review by Mike Korn
Reunions are getting to be a dime-a-dozen in the metal world these days, but occasionally they bear worthy fruit. The recent comebacks by Judas Priest and Exodus would be good examples of returns that worked, but this new record from the legendary Swedish doom metal band Candlemass is the best yet.

Candlemass - Ancient Dreams
Review by Gary Hill
Not extremely progish, this one does have a few moments of prog leanings. I considered those leanings enough to include the band in the prog metal category.

Carcass - Surgical Steel
Review by Mike Korn
I can’t think of too many bands that had a hand in creating two different sub-genres of music, but England’s legendary Carcass is one.

Celtic Frost - Into the Pandemonium
Review by Mike Korn
"Into the Pandemonium" remains a watershed album in the development of extreme metal but it has never been properly presented on CD until now. It's hard to figure out why it took so long, but at least it's finally here.

Conquest - The War We Rage
Review by Gary Hill
Brutal metal that has a bit of a range makes up the sound here.

Conquest - Under the Influence
Review by Gary Hill
For this new album the guys in Conquest decided to pay tribute to some of their musical influences by creating their own versions of some of the songs.

Converge - Jane Doe
Review by Mike Korn
This is one of the most extreme recordings I own. It's about as raw, dissonant and wild as anything in music today, yet it does not easily fit any definition.

DC Cooper - DC Cooper
Review by Gary Hill
The first solo album by former Royal Hunt vocalist D. C. Cooper, this is quite a strong release. Some of the material on here could easily have been done by his former band, but Cooper also brings in some more `80`s tinged metal influences.

Cradle of Filth - Midian
Review by Mike Korn
Cradle of Filth are possibly the biggest thing happening in the metal underground right now. I know they sell ungodly (pun intended) amounts of merchandise and inspire tremendous fan devotion.

Cradle of Filth - Damnation and a Day
Review by Mike Korn
One thing's for certain - Cradle of Filth don't do anything half way. For their major label debut "Damnation and a Day", they have pulled out all the stops and unleashed an exhausting 76-minute opus featuring a 40 piece orchestra and 32 piece choir.

Crimson Glory - Astronomica
Review by Gary Hill
With far reaching influences (King Diamond, Judas Priest, Queensryche, Rush, Iron Maiden, Rob Zombie, Powerman 5000 and even Alice Cooper), this CD really puts an intriguing twist on the metal genre.
