Class of 2006


  • Swedish rock not for sissies

    The Haunted
    Century Media Records
    Today?s thrash revival owes a large debt to At The Gates, the Swedish band that started the oft-mentioned ?Gothenburg Sound.? Ironically, most of the American bands today that are reviving the scene on this side of the Atlantic wouldn?t be as potent if not for ATG?s influence. Now, after the eventual break-up of the band in ?96, came the formation of the lethal ...

  • "Real" metal reappears at Ozzfest 2004

    A gathering of the tribes, a celebration of all things abrasive and aggressive, sweaty pits and asphalt. This was the day, two weekends ago, known as Ozzfest 2004. Gone was the amorphous line-up, bottom-heavy with no-name, major-label ?heavy? bands. Out with the Linkin Park, in with the lamb of god. Adema? Funk that, give me Lacuna Coil, give me Black Label Society, and throw in a little Black Sab...
