Here Comes the Pain, the debut album from Slovakian rock band Broken Rain. And while the album was not painful to listen to, I don’t see it making its way to my regular play list. Not that there’s anything wrong with the album, and the fact that the band appears to be booked with gigs attests to their skills. Rather, many of the songs left me underwhelmed for a heavy metal album. Continue reading Music Review: Broken Rain CD: Here Comes the Pain

HOLY SHIT!!!!  I think I just found a Black Metal band(well the band claims to be Death Metal so what the hell do I know, they still sound like they have Black(Death) Metal Elements in their music) I can listen to and not only listen to but also kind of enjoy.  Tribulation’s ‘The Formulas of Death’ does have some of the standards you find in Black(Death) Metal bands such as the blast beats, soul searing vocals and one note shredding.  However, these are all mixed in with great musical compositions that go beyond your typical Black metal standards that make ‘The Formulas of Death’ stand out from the crowd and what makes it an enjoyable listen.  It’s almost like a Black(Death)/Thrash metal mix in terms of guitar work.

Well what can I saw?  The Bands name and the title of the CD pretty much sums up my feelings of this album.  I want to start off by saying I am not someone to sit behind a computer and try to by witty or a smart ass by writing a review that destroys a person or bands work they have worked hard at making just so I can try to be funny.  However, if I feel the material is weak or poor I do feel I have the need to express that in a constructive way and if possible with good natured humor that is not malicious.  So with that being said, ‘The Rough Path of Nihilism’ was a rough path indeed for me…my god was it a tough listen.
