This is the second album from Greek symphonic modern metallers Project Renegade. Ultra Terra is a 57-minute expression of contemporary metallic heaviness that takes in a range of old and new influences to produce an album of catchy, accessible songs. In other words, they play stadium-friendly heavy music with big choruses and symphonic enrichments. Project ..read more

Eleine are a Swedish symphonic metal band and this is their fourth album. This is my first encounter with Eleine, and it’s a very favourable one. Playing a form of symphonic heavy metal with a distinctly high quality flavour and more metallic might than you might expect, We Shall Remain delivers 37 minutes of engaging ..read more

This is the debut album from Swedish metal band Curse of Cain. Now here’s an interesting and unexpected release. Curse of Cain‘s 42 minutes weaves a compelling post-apocalyptic story that cooks together a bunch of different ingredients that probably shouldn’t work, but actually does. The end result is tasty and satisfying. The band’s style is ..read more

This is the third album from Canadian progressive metallers Osyron. Osyron play a form of progressive metal that takes influence from both old and new. There are elements of classic power and heavy metal, alongside newer, heavier, modern metal influences, (even approaching melodic death metal territories in places).

This is the debut album from Greek heavy metal band Battle Symphony. War on Earth gives us a whopping 69 minutes of music to absorb, (including the bonus track).

Disillusion – Ayam (Review)

This is the fourth album from German progressive metal band Disillusion. Ayam offers 59 minutes of idiosyncratic progressive metal. Highly melodic, with atmospheric, symphonic, and avant-garde touches, Disillusion have created a big, epic album, in more ways than one. The well-crafted songs are emotive and well-structured, taking the listener on a journey through texture and ..read more

Therion – Leviathan II (Review)

Therion are a Swedish symphonic/operatic metal band and this is their eighteenth album. 2021’s Leviathan was one of my favourite records from that year. How it didn’t end up on my end of year list I’ll never know, and it remains a massive oversight on my part. Suffice to say it’s an absolute killer record, and ..read more

Cryptosis are a thrash metal band from the Netherlands and this is their debut album. Cryptosis play an aggressive form of thrash that combines raw fiery hostility with progressive depth. Thrown into this mix are minor elements of symphonic, technical, black, and death metal, all of which merely add flavour to an already tasty thrash-tastic ..read more

This is the sixth album from Finnish heavy/power metallers Battle Beast. Battle Beast play a symphonic mix of heavy and power metal, and they do so with skill and character. I haven’t caught up with Battle Beast since 2017’s enjoyable Bringer of Pain, so Circus of Doom seemed a good time to check in with their ..read more

Inhuman are a Belgian symphonic metal band and this is their debut album. Inhuman mix together symphonic metal’s epic flamboyance with death metal’s bark and bite. The end result is an album that’s heavier and more aggressive than the norm for many bands who play in this arena, and all the better for it. Inhuman really ..read more
