Macabre - Grim Scary Tales Review by Mike Korn Chicago's goofy goremongers Macabre have spent over twenty-five years putting the fun back into murder with their twisted tales of serial killers and human monsters. More
Machine Head - The Blackening Review by Greg Olma This is my first foray into the land of Machine Head. I’ve read about them but have not heard what they are all about.
Magnolia - Magnolia Review by Gary Hill According to the bio information on this group, they took their name from a song by Blue Cheer. In fact, that group is listed as the major influence on this Swedish outfit.
Mahavatar - Go With The NO! Review by Gary Hill This is the first album from New York band Mahavatar, and it shows a LOT of promise for great things to come. They have created an intriguing blend of numetal, classic metal, epic neo classical metal and a good many other sounds. More
Manilla Road - Voyager Review by Mike Korn Mark "The Shark" Shelton has been walking this road since the late 70's and in the process, he's been bringing us some of the most stirring and epic metal out there.
Manilla Road - Atlantis Rising Review by Mike Korn Manilla Road is truly the band that would not die. Never caving in to whatever the prevailing trend was (be it grunge, death or glam), the Wichita, Kansas band had a career that defied the odds and managed to release some outstanding epic heavy metal during the 80's and early 90's.
Mastodon - Leviathan Review by Mike Korn There is a generation gap in heavy metal that seems unbridgable. The veterans who remember the great years of the 70's and 80's seem content to bask in the music of their youth, giving very little heed to newer bands such as Shadows Fall or Lamb of God. More
Mekong Delta - The Music of Erich Zann Review by Gary Hill Germany's Mekong Delta has recently reformed and that seems as good a reason as any to have a look back at this killer album. The group have their own type of thrashing progressive metal that in many ways was far ahead of its time. More
Melechesh - Emissaries Review by Mike Korn This is one of those albums that's not only a high water mark for the band, but for the entire genre they work in. Emissaries is an effort that clicks in every way possible and which has already emerged as my favorite metal release of 2007.
Mennen - Freakazoid Review by Gary Hill Freakazoid is the fifth album from Swedish band Mennen. While they are well known in Europe and Japan, this might be the first time many music fans in America have heard of the group. More
Metal Church - This Present Wasteland Review by Gary Hill I can remember getting into this band in the early days. I really liked their first couple of albums but kind of lost track of them after that. More
Metal Militia - Perpetual State of Aggression Review by Mike Korn Milwaukee Metalfest is the annual gathering of head bangers that some have likened to a heavy metal cattle drive, with thousands of lowing fans plodding continuously in front of mostly unknown and unlauded bands.
Metallica - Death Magnetic Review by Mike Korn Has the hour of redemption arrived for Metallica? Or is it too late for them to reclaim their crown as the reigning kings of heavy metal?
Meyvn - Splintered Skies Review by Greg Olma I just recently got turned onto a new band out of Illinois called Sacred Dawn and now I get this release. Meyvn is an outfit from Texas and like Sacred Dawn, play a harder prog metal that leaves them in a field out on their own.
I was lucky enough to catch these guys as support for UFO on their North American tour in 2011.It is not often that I walk away from a show as a fan of a band I hadn’t previously heard, but Mindflow were able to convert me.
Mithras - Behind the Shadows Lie Madness Review by Jeremy Seffens Made in the great spirit of fantasy-like metal, Behind the Shadows Lie Madness transitions the listener into the world of Mithras (Rayner Coss and Leon Macey). Once there, all-out headbanging and moshing is permitted through this duo's heavy lyrics and heavier instrumental work.
With a name like “Mob Rules” you might think that these guys were going to have a sound that was based on the Black Sabbath era that was fronted by Ronnie James Dio (or the band now called “Heaven and Hell”).
Morbid Angel - Heretic Review by Mike Korn The grand old ghouls of death metal, Morbid Angel have a tough task to keep themselves from falling into the dreaded "influential but over the hill" slot. More
Morbid Angel - Gateways of Annihilation Review by Mike Korn I wasn't expecting much from this release, as the venerable Morbid Angel, amongst the oldest of active death metal acts, has not been especially impressive in recent years. More
Mothernight - MotherNight Review by Greg Olma MotherNight is a 4 piece out of Poland. Poland has its share of metal music but it just doesn’t seem to make it onto the international scene. When I heard MotherNight was from the land of my ancestors, I just had to see what was going on there now.
Mötley Crüe - Live Entertainment or Death Review by Brian Angotti and Gary Hill The fans have asked for it for years and the Crue gives them Entertainment or Death. Entertainment or Death is Motley Crue's first live album since exploding on the L.A. scene nearly twenty years earlier.
Motörhead - Kiss of Death Review by Gary Hill When you put on a new Motorhead album you always have a pretty good idea of what to expect. Throughout the group's long history their sound has not changed much. More
Motörhead - We Are Motörhead Review by Mike Korn Motörheadis a band I've enjoyed and respected for over 20 years. They have never compromised on their raw blues-soaked heavy metal. More
Motörhead - Motorizer Review by Gary Hill I’ve always loved Motorhead. You know, they might not be the most original band, but there’s just something about them More
Motorjesus - Deathrider Review by Greg Olma According to some information on the internet, Motorjesus started their career as the S**theadz. I'm sure that would prevent you from finding their discs at Wal-Mart. More
Mushroomhead - Savior Sorrow Review by Gary Hill I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting, but this, my first exposure to Mushroomhead, wasn't what I thought it would be. I guess I'd always expected the band to be a stoner rock/metal band. More
