These guys play some very well constructed Black Metal music. There are some Death Metal

LUCA TURILLI plays some highly amazing & highly well structure Progressive Metal music. I
has lots of depth & atmosphere all through out, while staying in a Progressive Metal style. I liked
how each song had a different vibe or feel to it & still maintained the bands sound. The male
vocals reminded me of a mix between David Bowie & Ronnie James Dio & the female vocals
reminded me of
LACUNA COIL & WICKED WISDOM. This band is extremely talented &
deserves a lot of attention. You must experience this band if you haven't already!!!
www.LUCATURILLI.net
This band is a bit similar to the above band. That's because both bands were founded by LUCA
Metal music mixed together. This band also has only female vocals used. The music is very deep
done in a melodic female Goth style. This is a must experience band as well. If you like the above
album you will love this album a lot! I know I did. This may be the best CD this month!!! I love
it!!!

really like that they use samples & sound clips all through out their songs. The music is a bit
heavier, more grooved & better structured than the last disc. They add more Thrash & Death
Death/Black Metal crossover style of growling & screaming. I enjoyed this disc a bit more than
the last one & really can't wait to hear their next release. This band is going to make a name for
themselves in the underground. Keep a watch out for these guys!!!

this is the band for you. I loved these crazy bastards!!!

I can't believe these guys are not signed! This band from Estonia plays some very technical
sounding Death Metal music. The music is quite involved, but balances itself out with some really
great blasting Death Metal, old school style. There are some very good tempo changes & guitar
riffing all through out & it some what reminded me of some of the great Thrash bands from the
early 90's. The vocals are done in a   mid ranged Death Metal growl style. I think these guys could
hold their own with some of the great legendary Death bands like
MORBID ANGEL, DEATH,

This is the newest project from Bob Macabre. His original project is CHAINSAW band. This is a
one man project & Bob does all guitar, bass, vocals, lyrics & drum programming himself. I liked

great release & really showcases Bob's talent. Support this guys projects!!!

OBSCENE GESTURE - PROMO
great old school Thrash Metal & Punk music. This demo took me back to the mid 80's when
Metal & Punk were crossing over in a big way. The music has a cool Thrash Metal vibe mixed
together you'd get these guys!. The band features members of
AGENT STEEL, BODY COUNT
& STEEL PROPHET. This is well worth checking out, especially now before they get signed &
blow up!!

This is a promo sampler for the bands upcoming self titled full length album. This band used to be
the same name  have shortened their name to
OMNIUM. The band hails from Australia & much
better in the song structures & in their sound as well. There is a lot of intensity & aggression in
this band. The vocal style is done in a blend of both Death Metal growls & Grindcore screams.
This is by far the best work they have done yet. I look forward to the full length, these 4 tracks
are not enough!!!

(10 track CD) LONG SHOT ENTERTAINMENT
PILLOW has been a part of the Melbourne Australia scene for over ten years now. These guys
defy any music boundary they can attack & they do a great job at it. There are elements of Metal,
anything you can really say to describe these guys without listening to them first. I loved how
they hit you with fast pace Metal Punk & then stop & slow it down to a salsa or reggae style. The
vocals follow the same path as the music all through out as well. If you were to blend together
CLUTCH, MEATMEN, BLOOD DUSTER, FISHBONE & DOG FASHION DISCO with
Salsa, Reggae & Country you would get PILLOW. This was a big refreshing sound that definitely
stood out from most of the stuff I get for review & that is only one reason why I loved this disc!!!

QUIVIRA - 5 BRICKS
(5 track CD) Self Release
QUIVIRA play a different mix of Metal & Hardcore music than most. These guys have a really
melodic & emotional sound to their style of this music. The guitars represent more of the Metal
side, while the drums & bass represent more of the Hardcore side. I liked the thick bass sound
they have through their music. The vocals are done in a more mid ranged & melodic Hardcore style
with some higher Power Metal ones mixed in. They also toss in some lower Death/Hardcore type
the Death influences. Not my favorite style in this genre, but the band does a great job with it!!!

These guys play a mix of old school Thrash Metal mixed with new school brutal Death Metal

aggressive riffing & some heavy thick bass lines, not to mention hard hitting pounding drum
Thrash & Death met head on back in the late 80's & early 90's. This is definitely a band that is on

This band is fronted by Jay Reason from the band VOICE OF REASON. This band is a bit done
in a aggressive up beat pogo friendly style. There are a lot of good hooks & grooves that really
pulls you into their music. I liked the intense & powerful driving drum & bass beats a lot. The
vocals are done in a mid Pop Punk mixed with some gruffly Hardcore type vocals. These guys are
bands playing this style today. These guys will hopefully float to the top & stand out more than
others. Check them out cause they are better than most bands in their genre!!!

I was kind of expecting these guys to be an Industrial band, I don't know why, but I did. Guess
has a balance of hard edged Rock & melodic almost romantic Metal all coated with Pop flavors. I
enjoyed the faster more upbeat & aggressive songs better than the slower ones. The vocals are a
blend of fast Pop Punk & melodic Metal sounds. If you took
