REVIEW : Colossus - Badlands

Colossus’ sophomore effort, “Badlands” uses a very similar formula as “Time & Eternal” while still showing a natural progression and maturity. This is still the young and energetic band we all fell in love with on “Time & Eternal”, just more refined in every way imaginable.

REVIEW : Sleeping Giant - Finished People

For anyone familiar with Christian hardcore legends, Sleeping Giant, you already have a pretty good idea of what to expect on their newest release, “Finished People”. A raw production style, riffs focused more on getting the crowd moving than technicality, and front man Tom Green’s passionate vocal performance. “Finished People” takes this basic formula the band have used in the past and refines it to become perhaps the best Sleeping Giant record to date.

REVIEW : Darkness Divided - Written In Blood

The record oozes nostalgia as it channels the pure things that made metalcore shine in the early 2000s. Guitar solos, stellar clean vocals, and an overall gritty tone abound on this wonderfully fun record.
