Metal Blade Records


ALBUM REVIEW: Batushka – Hospodi

Taking on a darker concept than its ancestor, Batushka’s 'Hospodi' is a polished, well-orchestrated record. However, while it has its glorious, exciting moments, and sees more experimentation than that heard in 'Litourgiya', it is far from the immersive masterpiece it followed.

ALBUM REVIEW: Whitechapel – The Valley

With 'The Valley', Whitechapel have built upon their delving into melodic territories in 'Mark of the Blade', and refined it to bring a more natural, determined sound. An emotional, self-exploratory record which is their most ambitious yet, and amongst their strongest.
