Allegaeon Formshifter Review

WHY U NO LISTEN TO ALLEGAEON?!??!?!?! Is it because their name is almost impossible to read? Is it because you don’t like awesome music that is capable of setting your balls on fire!?!? Whatever your reason is, you need to settle in and listen to these melodic-tech-death maestros. Their previous album Fragments of Form and Function was one of my favorite albums of 2010 and I have been eagerly awaiting their next opus.  Welcome 2012 when the Fort Collins, CO band released Formshifter, another grand piece of melodic death metal. Combining death metal with classical guitar interludes and mind bending solos that make the Haldron Collider seem like a 6th grader’s science project, the band seem to have elaborated on their previous album and expanded their horizons to new reaches.

Mid-Week Br00tal Break: Cerebral Bore

Relatively new to the scene, Cerebral Bore out of Scotland have seen much success after only one full length album, 2010’s Maniacal Miscreation. With new track “Horrendous Acts of Inequity” released in February of 2012, we can only hope that a new album is right around the corner. And with a high profile spot on the Summer Slaughter Tour alongside heavyweights Cannibal Corpse, Between the Buried and Me, Goatwhore, and Exhumed, Cerebral Bore are set to bore (pun intended) their brutal death metal straight into the minds of thousands more heshers.

New Band Spotlight: Balescream

We here at NW MetalHead Productions are always looking for new bands to put into the spotlight. Today we spotlight Balescream, a melodic death/groove metal band from Newcastle. Getting ready to put out their first album, they have released a couple demo songs to get their name out there. For fans of Devildriver, As I Lay Dying, and In Flames, they play a chunky style of melodeath that has grooves for days. The talent in this band is very evident and I cannot wait to hear more from these guys in the future. If they move more towards the melodic death metal side of their sound big things could be in their future. So for now check out their 2 songs "Cyclonic Terror" and "Kusanagi" and raise your horns up high!
