Steel Panther – Feel the Steel

Feel the Steel Album Cover

Steel Panther’s first purely musical album is not one for the easily offended. It straddles the line of pastiche and parody, taking the crassness and misogyny of 80’s hair metal bands and turning it...

Tomahawk – Tomahawk

Tomahawk

This first release from Mike Patton’s Tomahawk may seem a little straight laced when compared to the eclectic insanity of the Mr. Bungle and Fantômas albums that preceded it, but it is this more coherent sound...

The Darkness – Permission To Land

PermissionToLand

The Darkness burst on to the music scene in 2003 with this rather epic slice of cock rock. Just listening to this album, you’d be hard pressed not to feel imbued with the qualities...

System Of A Down – Toxicity

Toxicity

Toxicity is a tour de force, bursting at the seams with a roaring intensity that’s so infectious it’s almost impossible to avoid nodding or tapping along as you listen. This is System Of A...

Bibio – Mind Bokeh

MindBokeh

Mind Bokeh rather aimlessly wanders away from the more clearly defined previous Bibio releases. It has a few really good tracks (‘K Is For Kelson’ is a personal favourite), but they are interspersed by...

Metallica – Master Of Puppets

MasterOfPuppets

Master Of Puppets is rightly considered by many to be one of the finest heavy metal albums of all time. This is an album of grand scale and almost operatic grandeur, only occasionally pausing...
