1.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear..., 12 Jun. 2009
Desperately awkward. Breathtakingly unfunny. It's all the worst bits of Red Dwarf in a 'special'. I've been a Red Dwarf fan for years and still find the first 6 series thoroughly entertaining. The decline that began with series 7 and continued in fine fashion in series 8, seems to have continued without any thought for entertainment.

This is not a bad review for the sake of a bad review. It's a good few years spent in anticipation that have been wasted by sloppy writing, lazy acting and a reliance of special affects. Any chemistry the actors had is gone, and it looks like, for all intents a purposes, an exercise in paycheque collection.

Disappointing to say the least.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but nothing grand..., 19 Aug. 2008
This review is from: Holographic Universe (Audio CD)
This is nothing that hasn't been done before by Scar Symmetry. It's a solid album - there are a couple of tunes that made me stop to listen, but nothing in the vein of 'The Illusionist'. The vocals are once again good, with a nice mix of Jon Bon Jovi 'clean' and Glen Benton death growls, but the vocals aren't grandiose or ambitious enough to rival 'Pitch Black Progress'.

Scar Symmetry have introduced some intersting electronic sounding backing vocals to certain tracks that really sound out of place. I'm not entirely sure they work yet. It reminds me a bit of Fall Out Boy (but with balls). They are catchy enough, and i'm sure they'll grow on me...

Again, a good album, but nothing they haven't done already - and better - on their previous two albums. If you like the Gothenburg sound, Scar Symmetry are band worth a look, but really, i'd spend your hard earned cash on the second release, 'Pitch Black Progress'. If your already a fan you won't need my review because like me, you'll have bought this album blind based on the songs this band are capable of writing.

Enjoy people, one of the better bands to come out of metal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent melodic metal., 22 Feb. 2008
Melodic. Death. Metal. Heavier than some of the bands out there today, Germany's Heaven Shall Burn have been likened to In Flames, but personally I can't hear it. This is much heavier than that. But as heavy as it is, it still maintains some very catchy riffs, making sure that there is at least one hooky riff in each song. This means that each song will get you nodding or doing some crucial air punches, but provides that this album won't get old.

As a huge fan of the meldoic death metal genre, i'm always excited when someone recommends a new band. I'm recommending this little beauty to you. You won't be disappointed. But beware, for those of you who like your music more melodic than death, think before you buy. For those of you who prefer more death than melody, don't even bother, this deserves your money.

Honestly, i hope you all love this album as much as me. Oh and as for 4 stars, it's the best any album will get now that i've heard Machine Head's 'The Blackening'. Fact.

3.0 out of 5 stars Possibly made of old carpet samples at the last minute, but great watching., 9 Dec. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To be honest Mr Claringbold, you talk rubbish. If you're not a Liverpool fan, why take the time to comment on this product? Nothing better to do? Anyway, if you are a fan of the mighty Pool, this product will be appraciated greatly. It has all of the usual bits you would expect of a history, plus it brings it all up to date. I would agree that the new footage is a bit stilted, and yes, Rafa does talk nonsense, but generally this will keep you happy. And it has good re-run quality, and as long as you can take seeing Jimmy-with-a-D Traore fumbling around with the ball like a drunken baby, then you'll definitely want to watch this again. And possibly once more. But that would be it. This DVD is recommended by Liverpool fans, and not by Man United fans from Surrey.

5.0 out of 5 stars This blew me away..., 25 Nov. 2005
Having bought Wages of Sin recently, i was excited about this band - not least because of Gossow's man-like thunder of a voice - and was really looking forward to getting this new release.
I was not dissappointed! this is just a sensational album from start to finish, and makes huge progress from Wages of Sin and is the much more good looking and brutal younger brother. With tracks like nemesis, out for blood and carry the cross i havent stopped listening to this album 2 weeks on...i just cant say enough good things about this album. Its my release of the year.
Fans of anything shouty should give this a look, and for all Chimaira, God-Forbid and Trivium fans this is an essentail buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but Electric General is better., 30 July 2005
This review is from: Love Is the New Hate (Audio CD)
After a brief appearance as Pacifier, SHIHAD are back. Coming from New Zealand, they have not got the recognition they deserve.
My sister sent this to me from Australia knowing i am a fan. I wasnt dissappointed. The album is definitely a grower, so give it a chance. The riffs are very catchy which can mean that they will get old fast, but after quite a few listens this has not happened. Stand out tracks include "All the young fascists" and "Shot in the head". The album is a little bit calmer than Electric General, which i would say is a better album, but this offereing is more than worth the money.
