Canadian extreme metal outfit The Agonist are back in tip top shape with their sixth album “Orphans”, set to be released on September 20, via Rodeostar Records. The hype surrounding this record began to spread with the release of the first single “In Vertigo”, and reached a boiling point with “Burn it all down”. It was clear that powerhouse vocalist Vicky Psarakis, guitarists Danny Marino and Pascal Jobin, bassist Chris Kells and drummer Simon McKay have created a very solid and intense album.

Colossal swells erupt from a vast ocean of human suffering and universal dread and in their wake present to us the latest offering from the minds of Carnifex: ‘’World War X’’. Soul darkening, eye-bloodying, flesh crushing death metal is to be expected from this group of musicians, yet with the new album comes a unique notion of unavoidable hopelessness; the inevitable rot of mankind. Carnifex has stoked the coals and breathed a distinct power into ‘’World War X’’.

Last year when I first joined Lyrical Spell Magazine, my first review was for the debut album “Death Embraces You All” by the Norwegian gothic metal band Mørke, a new band that promises to revive the old school of the 90s gothic metal genre in the veins of bands such as Tristania, Theatre of Tragedy, and The Sins of thy Beloved.

A Metallica rip-off or successful joke? Weezer’s 13th album and 6th self-titled album, the Black album continues with the band’s journey having a catchy return. Rivers Cuomo, Brian Bell, Scott Shriner, and Patrick Wilson make up the legendary quartet with their tenure lasting more than 20 years. Ultimately, Weezer may have strayed from their general path.
