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.

Yngwie Malmsteen - Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force - Unleash The Fury
Review by Lisa Palmeno
Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force released Unleash The Fury (Spitfire Records) on July 26, 2005. Rock fans will love this 18-song compilation of metal masterpieces.

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.

Marilyn Manson - Antichrist Superstar
Review by Gary Hill
Marilyn Manson is very controversial, but if you really take the time to listen to the music, there is a dark beauty and charm to it.
More
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
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 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 - Master of Puppets
Review by Greg Olma

The year was 1986.  Although thrash metal was already a few years old, Metallica really brought it into the mainstream with Master of Puppets.

Mindcage - Our Own Devices
Review by G. W. Hill

This is quite an effective metal album.


More
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.

Mötley Crüe - Shout At The Devil
Review by Gary Hill
Motley Crue somewhat defined an era of heavy metal, and this landmark album was the beginning of that influence by them.
More
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.
More
Mötley Crüe - New Tattoo
Review by Brian Angotti

Motley Crüe, the bad boys of rock, return and ink us with New Tattoo! There may be a new Crüe for the new millennium, but not a new sound.


More
Motörhead - We Are Motörhead
Review by Mike Korn
Motörhead is a band I've enjoyed and respected for over 20 years. They have never compromised on their raw blues-soaked heavy metal.
More
Motörhead - Hammered
Review by Mike Korn

Just when you thought it was time to stick a fork in Motörhead they come roaring back with "Hammered", and again we doubting Thomases must bow our heads in shame.
