Where War of Angels hit us with fast, roaring guitars and drums, Onyx has gone back to the roots of Lipstick On The Mirror to deliver a dark and melodic tempo.  And it is surprisingly good.

Pop Evil know how to deliver killer, hard music that gets you completely sucked in.  The beginning just fires away from the starting blocks like Usain Bolt, and even with the rock ballads in the middle, Onyx finishes with one hell of a bang. (more…)

The first album in thirteen years from the thrash metal band, and lead vocalist Mike Muir the only remaining member of the original band, comparisons to older Suicidal Tendencies is a little out of the question here.

David Draiman, Andre Karkos (aka Virus), Geno Leonardo and Will Hunt formed Device last year, and the album kicks off with a 1-2-3 gut punch of guitar, electro and industrial metal.

On hiatus from Disturbed, frontman Draiman (known for his unique vocal style and growls) began to work with Geno Leonardo on lyrics and songwriting in 2012.  There’s something about this hooking self-titled album, and Draiman, Virus, Leonardo and Hunt give fans something to savour.

Admittedly, a lot of expectations have been drawn from Disturbed.  But this is Device, and while the signature growls and deep vocals do show through at times (and well too, I might add), Draiman has moved into a new “shell”.
