So, I've been requesting a review of this album for just about 3 or 4 years now, and it still hasn't got a single one. Would one of you lovely, lovely reviewers with a much better grasp of review writing than I've ever possessed please review Hateform's Sanctuary In Abyss? It is readily available to anyone with a subscription to Spotify, and is also available on Youtube, although not through an official channel belonging to either Hateform or Spinefarm Records. It's also available on iTunes, I assume for a pretty low price. It's quite a shame that a band like Hateform can release a top-shelf (obviously in my opinion) album, and 4 years down the road still not have a single (positive or negative) review on it. It would please me immensely to read any sort of review on it. Thank you very much, in advance.

Well, I reckon there's a pretty good chance it'll be about gory tits.

I'd like to request reviews of our debut album: https://www.metal-archives.com/albums/D ... ker/678884

Album purchase link: https://geo.itunes.apple.com/us/album/s ... &app=music


Background info if you care:

Doctor Dementia is the brainchild of singer Brian Johnson, of New Britain, Connecticut, who was inspired by a love of classic horror films and a multitude of macabre musicians including Mercyful Fate, King Diamond, Ghost, Cradle of Filth, Alice Cooper and The Misfits (to name a few). Johnson met guitarist and keyboard player Joshua Carrig (Morte McAdaver) of Blacksoul Seraphim and formerly of Sorrowseed and Pandora's Toybox, at one of his shows in New York. He became a fast fan of Morte's dark and peculiar brand of music and proposed a collaboration. The two then recruited drummer Rick Lowell, who played in Morte's other endeavors. The album was produced in Massachusetts at Stillwork by Benjamin Jon, who also performed additional instrumentation. The album's grotesque cover art was created by McKel Supreme of Night & Day Anime Studios of New York, whom Johnson had formed a vile alliance with since high school.

The album begins with an intro track in which Maestro Morte McAdaver, welcomes the listener to a sinister carnival - the Bleakshow. There, he will tell them the terrifying tale of Doctor Dementia, which is set during the late 19th Century in a village in Eastern Europe.
"Doctor Dementia, as he is called by those who now fear him for his mad experiments, was once a respected Doctor working out of a local mental asylum," said Johnson. "He fell in love with 'Morta', the name the villagers gave to a nurse tending to the dying and the dead. Together, they began searching for a means to conquer death. However, Morta was married to the asylum head Doctor Samuel who abused her and his patients viciously. She came to Doctor Dementia for protection, but when Samuel discovered her unfaithfulness he had her poisoned and then blamed the doctor. Doctor Dementia was tried and found to be insane as well as guilty of sorcery. He was then put into Samuel's care, where he was tortured daily under the pretense of attempting to cure him. However, Morta's will dictated that she be buried under specific circumstances that would keep her well preserved in case she could ever be resurrected. Now, Doctor Dementia plans to escape from the asylum, bring his love back from the grave and exact his vengeance upon those who condemned him."

Johnson said that this passion project had been 'in the works' since roughly 2009. He intends it to be a tribute to those artists who inspired his creativity and hopes that it will allow him, in some small way, to leave his own mark on the genres.
"If I am able to produce at least one metal album and at least one horror film before I die, I can die happy," he said.

Today, the Estonian thrash metal band Tankist unleashed their debut full length album “Unhuman” onto the world, officially described by the band as “nine stabbing thrash metal tracks that are led by the spirit of old-school, saying fearlessly what's wrong with the modern world, injected with adventurous violence and miserable thoughts. The hundred riff long journey surges along the edge, staying true to the principle: “fucking-fist-in-the-face songs, brutally honest whole””.

Check the album out on Bandcamp and if you'd like to review it, please PM me to get a download link for unlimited listening time (Bandcamp gives you three free spins of each song). www.tankist.bandcamp.com

We would like a reviewer to review the latest album of Morvigor. The album is called Tyrant.

Other reviewers compared us to Urgehal, Satyricon, Watain, Pink-Floyd, Dissection and Goatwhore.
So if you're interested in the task please contact me or the band at Evio@morvigor.nl.

The album can be streamed from Bandcamp. Reviewers can get a free digital version if you contact us.

Every review that is submitted to Metal Archives will get a physical copy of the album.
We don't care about the score or rating, every submitted review gets a physical copy.
This will keep the reviews unbiased, what we think is very important.
