Review: Evile – Five Serpent’s Teeth

September 26, 2011 marks the release of Evile’s third album Five Serpent’s Teeth. It’s not only their third album, it’s their first album without original bassist Mike Alexander who died only weeks after their second album, Infected Nations, was released in October of 2009.

After two great albums, Enter The Grave and Infected Nations, and with new bassist Joel Graham, all eyes within the Thrash Metal community are on Evile.

Is the band able to keep their momentum or was the loss of Mike Alexander too big of a blow for them to handle? Find out after the jump when I’m reviewing Five Serpent’s Teeth.


Blast from the Past: Machine Head – Burn My Eyes

The question has been uttered more than few times; if Machine Head‘s 1994 debut had been released in the the 8o’s would it have been so highly acclaimed? Or is its release coming years after the apparent decline in popularity of thrash, its reasoning for being a so called “landmark” record?

Now, 17 years later, and with another Machine Head album on the horizon, it seems like the perfect time to look back on Burn My Eyes, to acknowledge its success and evaluate whether its stood the test of time and if it really is the classic so many claim it to be.

Review: Reckless Manslaughter – Storm Of Vengeance

The world is small. Since starting Dose of Metal, we’ve reviewed many albums. As the main reviewer on this site, I’ve reviewed bands from Denmark, Sweden, Slovenia, Chile, Mexico, Singapore, Great Britain, the United States of America and many more places. Never before have I gotten a request from a band that operates as close to me as Reckless Manslaughter do, though.

Reckless Manslaughter are from Oberhausen, Germany. I’m sure that doesn’t tell you much, but Oberhausen is a city that borders my hometown. It’s basically a two-minute drive from my home. I might have even crossed paths with one of the guys in one of our local metal clubs, without even knowing.

But, when it comes down to it, your hometown doesn’t interest me if your music isn’t any good. You won’t get a local-band-bonus from me. The only thing that interests me when I’m writing a review, is quality. Make the jump to find out if Storm Of Vengeance, Reckless Manslaughter‘s debut album, proves to be a quality release.


Review: Masada – Suffer Mental Decay

It’s been a while since we’ve last posted a review, so I decided to tackle a really long album this time. I’m only kidding. Masada’s first demo, Suffer Mental Decay, only has two songs but why would that hold me back from reviewing it? Two awesome songs can be better than twenty awful songs, right? Is this the case with this demo? Make the jump to find out.

(And don’t bitch. Short intros for short demos. That’s how it works.)


Review: The Cleansing – Feeding The Inevitable

The Cleansing recently released their second album Feeding The Inevitable. Reason enough for me to check it out and write down my thoughts.

The Cleansing are from Copenhagen, Denmark and released their debut album, Poisoned Legacy, in 2009. Two years later they’re back with another Death Metal attack (hey, that rhymed).

Make the jump to read my review about this second strike of theirs.
