Ghost - Infestissumam - Definitely not as good as the debut, but there are still some interesting moments throughout. I'm worried they'll self-implode on their next record, but this one is still pretty good!

Yesterday the founder/lead writer for Skull Fracturing Metal stepped down, so I will be taking over full time. Thanks to Emmett for all of his great work with the 'zine! Also, here are our latest reviews:

Instanzia - Ghosts - Some of the catchiest power metal in existence from Montreal, Canada!

Razormaze - Annihiltia - Insane thrash! A huge step up from the last two releases! The vocals are much better, and the riffs are somewhat technical now.

Black Sabbath - 13 - I'm sure no review was needed, but go buy this album! It surpassed all of my expectations!

Diamond Plate - Pulse - A huge improvement over the first record (better vocals), and a very unique sounding thrash record.

Warbeast - Destroy - Heavy thrash from members of Gammacide and Rigor Mortis!

White Wizzard - The Devil's Cut - Pure old-school heavy metal from one of the best NWOTHM bands!

Trail - Malicious - A short, but satisfying EP of dark Mercyful Fate-inspired heavy metal

Protector - Reanimated Homunculus - Brutal death/thrash from one of Germany's heaviest bands!

There's plenty of cool stuff that should be coming up in the next week as well: a few more reviews of unreleased albums, a CD giveaway, and hopefully an interview!

Crimson Shadows - Sails of Destiny - Brilliant power/death from the newly crowned Wacken Metal Battle champions in 2013. The band is now signed to Nuclear Blast, and rest assured, they are more than worthy of that honour!

Fueled By Fire - Trapped In Perdition - These thrashers have gotten more serious, both in lyrics and music, and the result is a headbanging good time!

Ranger - Knights of Darkness - Thrashy speed metal out of Finland!

Entrails - Raging Death - More Swedish death that will be sure to satisfy all fans of the genre!

Interview with Jose Kurtz (Stormwrath, Extreme Noise Terror, Voice of Hate) - He sheds some light on all three bands, as well as a new project featuring a certain member of Absu!

Sinister Realm - World of Evil - A doom-laden traditional heavy metal riff-fest. Incredible vocals, and a great understanding of songwriting.

Volture - On The Edge - Catchy, fun, traditional heavy metal. The vocals are a bit out there, but will probably be quite enjoyable to some.

Fleshgod Apocalypse - Labyrinth - A much better refinement of the sound explored on "Agony". Wicked symphonic brutal death metal!

Hell's Domain - Hell's Doman - Good thrashy stuff from Denmark!

Nekrofilth - Devil's Breath - Brutal gutwrenching tunes!

Timo Tolkki's Avalon - The Land of New Hope - Derivative but catchy power metal from a legendary power metal figure. Features Michael Kiske and Elize Ryd, among others on vocals!

Gama Bomb - The Terror Tapes - More ripping-fast thrash from the Irish masters!

Interview with Diamond Plate - If you still haven't checked out "Pulse", now is the time to do so as you prepare for their tour with Death Angel!

Interview with Olaf from Tankard - These awesome German thrashers are now confirmed for Maryland Deathfest! If I know this board well enough, quite a few of you will be there, so read this interview and pick up a few more of their albums before that show!

Gorguts - Colored Sands - I was a bit disappointed, but it's not really a bad record. The best parts are the Immolation worshipping riffs.

Hex Morbidity - Evangelical - Black metal with strong death and thrash influences. Very solid stuff.

Abominant - Onward To Annihilation - Mindblowingly awesome death/black metal. A highlight for the genre in 2013

Vesperia - An Olden Tale - Folky melodic death metal. "The Swordsman" is undeniable one of the catchiest tunes I've ever heard!

Convulse - Evil Prevails - One of the gods of Finnish death metal returns with a solid comeback album. Fans of the band or that scene in general will enjoy this one!

Carcass - Surgical Steel - A wicked return to form of the "Heartwork" sound. Essential melodeath!

Dismantle - Journey Through the Dark - Very unique sounding thrash with a lot of different sounds and feels on the EP.

Nucleus - The Colony - Sci-fi influenced death metal. Good riffs, not overly technical, and a solid listen.

Stone Magnum - From Time...To Eternity - I am not a fan of doom metal, but this album totally won me over. It's straight forward Sabbath influenced doom, but really great stuff.

Toxic Holocaust - Chemistry of Consciousness - Punky thrash from one of today's best thrash bands!
