I - Between Two Worlds Review by Mike Korn There are certain bands that are grand masters of "the riff.” Black Sabbath automatically comes to mind and I would also include Celtic Frost in that select group. Right now, the best riff masters are arguably the Norwegian ice demons Immortal, back in action after a 3-year layoff.
Iced Earth - Horror Show Review by Mike Korn Heavy metal has always been fascinated with monsters and horror since the days of Black Sabbath. The macabre has always been a good match with a gloomy riff or tortured scream. More
Immortal - The Sons of Northern Darkness Review by Mike Korn Forget all your preconceptions when listening to this disk. Ignore the fairly cheesy look of the band, which screams "Norwegian Black Metal" in giant Gothic letters. More
Immortal - All Shall Fall Review by Mike Korn Immortal has emerged as one of those iconic bands that defines a certain sound. I would put them in the same category as Black Sabbath or Slayer. More
Immortal Dominion - Awakening - The Revelation Review by Greg Olma Immortal Dominion have been around since 1992 but this is the first time I have crossed paths with them. This new CD Awakening - The Revelation should be in any extreme metal fan's collection.
Impaled - Mondo Medicale Review by Mike Korn We put a lot of trust in our physicians. In the hands of these skilled healers we place our very well-being and good health, trusting in their knowledge and better instincts. But what if that faith is misplaced? More
Isn’t it amazing how a new sound comes along, all original and unique and sparks a whole field of musicians who recreate it in their own image? Then, after a while, the style becomes so overdone that it gets clichéd and trite and feels generic.
Incantation - Blasphemy Review by Mike Korn If you were to look beneath the dark underbelly of heavy metal, you would likely see Incantation staring back at you with a toothy grin. The very antithesis of good taste and musical technicality, this long-lasting band of sinister ghouls have cast a long dark shadow over death metal for over ten years. More
Iommi - Fused Review by Gary Hill Tony Iommi is probably best known as the lead guitarist of Black Sabbath. Arguably along with the other three members of that group Iommi invented heavy metal. More
Iommi - Iommi Review by Gary Hill This solo release by Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has quite a bit in common with last year’s Supernatural release by Santana. In both cases you have a guitar legend, who is an almost undisputed originator of his musical genre.
Iommi - The 1996 DEP Sessions Review by Greg Olma I can just picture it now. Tony Iommi and a friend are going through a studio to do some "Spring cleaning". They come across a tape labeled "With Glenn Hughes 1996 DEP Sessions". More
Iron Maiden - The Number Of The Beast Review by Patrick Hennen Back in the 1980's this was the album that was constantly under fire by Religious Fanatics, Politicians and anyone in general who wanted to try to give rock music a bad name. More
Iron Maiden - Iron Maiden Review by Patrick Hennen As you all are quite aware by now, I'm sure, Iron Maiden are performing alongside of Black Sabbath at Ozzfest 2005. More
Iron Maiden - Edward the Great Review by Gary Hill This compilation of songs by one of the most influential metal bands in history is a bit of a mystery. According to the liner notes the band chose what material to include. More
Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind Review by Rick Damigella The year was 1983 and Iron Maiden had just released their fourth studio album, Piece of Mind. More than just another album, it marked the beginning of a new phase for the band.
Iron Maiden - Powerslave Review by Rick Damigella Just over a year after their previous album, Iron Maiden released what would become in the opinion of many fans, their defining album. Powerslave, like its predecessor, was recorded at Compass Point Studios in Nassau, the Bahamas with Martin “Headmaster” Birch at the helm for the fourth straight record.
Iron Maiden - The Essential Iron Maiden Review by Mike Korn "Essential" is a tricky term to use for a compilation like this. A legendary band like Iron Maiden has a lot of songs that can be considered "essential". More
Iron Maiden - Death on the Road Review by Gary Hill There seems to be a disease going around bands these days. I'm not sure what it's called, but I can tell you that the main symptom is releasing live album after live album. More
Iron Maiden - Brave New World Review by Brian Angotti Iron Maiden is back and stronger than ever. With the return of Bruce Dickinson the band is launching the best CD of their careers, Brave New World. More
Iron Maiden - Killers Review by Rick Damigella Set the way back machine for 1981. The New Wave of British Heavy Metal was on and the brightest stars of the era were Iron Maiden. More
