Montreal Metal – a seal of approval to be reckoned with: the perfect breeding ground for bands looking for a rather menacing wall of sound! Next to Despised Icon, Beneath The Massacre and Cryptopsy THE AGONIST seem to be designed to make it all the way to the top of the extreme metal scene with their fine-tuned mixture of melodic death metal and metalcore. “Five” makes the exceptional position of the Canadian fivepiece even clearer – as well as its goal to escape all things ordinary. Ever since singer Vicky Psarakis joined the group in 2014…
Montreal, Quebec, Canada-based melodic death metallers THE AGONIST will release their new album, "Five", on September 30 via and Napalm Records. The CD was recorded with producer Mike Plotnikoff, who has previously worked with BUCKCHERRY, OTEP, HALESTORM, DROWNING POOL, THEORY OF A DEADMAN, 3 DOORS DOWN, FEAR FACTORY, FLYLEAF and SKILLET, among others.
The founding band of grindcore, Napalm Death are THE most influential band in the genre. Having sold millions of record worldwide and toured the globe, they have forged the unlikeliest of careers. The classic ddebut album 'Scum' was only Earache Records 3rd ever release, and started the wave of grindcore and extreme bands that followed over the next 15 years.Featuring 25 blisterting tracks of raw grindcore, which ch art the devleopment of the band from the early recordings through to the later albums, including classics such as 'Scum', 'Suffer The Children' and 'From Enslavement To Obliteration'.
Five Ways of Disappearing marks Smith's return to recording, and the album reflects both her psychedelic background and the more ethnic/folky material she creates now. Songs like "Aurelia Zebulon" and "Temporarily Lucy" are heavy, droning pieces bordering on gothic, while "In Your Head" is a demure pop song, and "Maggots" is an odd tune with a nonsensical chorus of "maggots/do-do-do-do-do." Her deadpan vocal delivery adds another layer of individuality to an offbeat album by an offbeat artist.

The Five Dollar Sugar Show Band and Revue are a young, determined, and well-polished Blues Experience. A four-piece group of multi-instrumental, high energy entertainers; they are focused on sharing the blues with their generation of listeners. Similar to their influences (Freddie King, John Lee Hooker and Tom Waits, to name a few), they've crafted their own brand of electric blues, ringing with all the Chicago, Delta and Texas overtones of their parents record collections.
There's little argument that Slash is a great guitarist, capable of making rock and blues clichés sound fresh. On his solo project, Slash's Snakepit, he plays a lot and most of his playing is quite amazing. It's too bad that nobody in the band bothered to write any songs.
DEATH ROW is the tenth studio album by German heavy metal band Accept, released in 1994. It was recorded at Roxx Studios. Stefan Kaufmann was still the official drummer for Accept, but drums on "Bad Habits Die Hard" and "Prejudice" are by Stefan Schwarzmann according to the liner notes. Stefan Kaufmann had to leave the band for the subsequent tour because of health problems, and Stefan Schwarzmann then handled drum duties.
