Faith No More - The Real Thing
Review by Gary Hill
Although the majority of the lyrics to this album are too dark and gritty for my tastes, the music contained herein is a very good meshing of heavy metal and progressive rock influences.

Review by Gary Hill
Fates Warning is Roy Alder, Jim Matheos, Frank Aresti, Joe Dibiase and Mark Zander. Dream Theater`s James Labrie provides background vocals on Life in Still Water.

Fates Warning - Disconnected
Review by Vivian Lee
In July of 2000 Fates Warning, the thinking person's prog metal band from California, have offered their latest, Disconnected. This brave new effort resembles, but not rehashes, past works like A Pleasant Shade of Grey or Parallels, either musically or in theme.

Fates Warning - Darkness In A Different Light
Review by Greg Olma
It has been almost a decade since we have gotten a Fates Warning release.

Fight - A Small Deadly Space
Review by Gary Hill
Much of this album is pure metal, however there are sections that show much progressive influences. Rob Halford`s vocal work here is based in the lower end of the register, rather than showing the high end pyrotechnics that he exhibited in Judas Priest.

Fireaxe - Lovecraftian Nightmares
Review by Gary Hill
Fireaxe is a one-man band in the personage of Brian Voth. The sound of Fireaxe certain falls into heavy metal, although there are other elements present as well.

FireHouse - O2
Review by Gary Hill
This new release by Firehouse finds them continuing their career of ‘80’s styled metal done with a classic tilt. For fans of that type of music, this CD should be a good entry into the catalog.

FireHouse - Bring 'Em Out Live
Review by Brian Angotti
Since scorching up the charts up with hits like "Love Of A Lifetime" and "Don't Treat Me Bad", Firehouse have finally put on tape what they do best; and that is play live. Bring 'em Out "LIVE" is a collection of the band's greatest hits captured live.

Five Pointe 0 - Untitled
Review by Arnold Hablewitz
Coolness - as Joliet, IL is now firmly on the musical map with this, a 6-piece metal band comprised mostly of kids just out of or finishing high school. Kicking around for only a few years, the band has already honed a surprisingly mature sound while still retaining that youthful energy and attitude that the nu-metal genre is known for.

Force Fed Chaos - Kept Beneath
Review by Mike Heitzman
This is a great local band hailing from Rockford, Illinois.

More
Force of Evil - Force of Evil
Review by Mike Korn
When the subject of great heavy metal guitar duos comes up, Hank Shermann and Michael Denner will never be far from the lips of the knowing metalhead.
More
From Hell - Ascent from Hell
Review by Gary Hill
This is extreme metal. I’d also make the argument that it is classical music.
