CD Reviews
Ancient Dreams
Review by Gary Hill
Not extremely progish, this one does have a few moments of prog leanings. I considered those leanings enough to include the band in the prog metal category.

Candlemass
Review by Mike Korn
Reunions are getting to be a dime-a-dozen in the metal world these days, but occasionally they bear worthy fruit. The recent comebacks by Judas Priest and Exodus would be good examples of returns that worked, but this new record from the legendary Swedish doom metal band Candlemass is the best yet.

King of the Grey Islands
Review by Mike Korn
I have no trouble declaring Sweden's Candlemass the best pure metal band on the planet right now. They have mastered their sound so thoroughly and risen above all obstacles in their path with such resolve that there is really no one to compare.

Psalms For the Dead
Review by Mike Korn
You are invited to a funeral. The deceased is not a "he" or a "she," but a "they."

King Diamond - Abigail
Review by Gary Hill
No one writes scary concept albums like King Diamond - no one. This disc is one of the spookiest lyrical excursions you will ever encounter.

Various Artists - Bang Your Head!!! Festival DVD
Review by Greg Olma
Ah, summer in Europe; the warm weather, the tourists, and most of all the Heavy Metal festivals. The poor American metal fan has to suffer through Ozzfest while the European audiences get fests that bring together many name acts for a weekend of good music.

Creozoth - Creozoth
Review by Lisa Palmeno
Creozoth released their first album on October 25, with a veteran packed line-up: lead guitarist Lars Johansson (Candlemass); Jan Lindh (Candlemass) on drums; lead singer Michael Storck (X-Plode, Yngwie Malmsteen); and Tobbe Moen (ex-Redfun, OZ) on bass.

Solitude Aeturnus - Hour of Despair DVD
Review by Gary Hill
This DVD brings a new, visual dimension the music of one of the masters of doom metal. Solitude Aeturnus’ particular flavor of doom resonates extremely well with me and it’s cool to get to experience their live show for the first time.

King Diamond - Live at House of Blues, Chicago, April 27,2005
Review by Mike Korn
There are a lot of good bands in the heavy metal scene today, but how many real entertainers are there? By "entertainer", I mean individuals who go out and put on a complete package that offers more than just going on stage and playing songs with enthusiasm?

Black Sabbath - Master of Reality
Review by Gary Hill
Black Sabbath’s third album is often overlooked. The first two were really defining a sound so they get more of the limelight.

Various Artists - Metal Retardation: Are You Metally Retarded? DVD

King Diamond - Them
Review by Gary Hill
King Diamond has a way of making albums that are really great horror stories set to song. Them is one of the best of those.
