5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully heavy matched by intricate melodies and ethereal vocals, 18 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Noeth Ac Anoeth (Audio CD)
A wonderfully ridiculously over-the-top name for a band. Brilliant. I think it suits this band very well.

Superb first album from a band that has already displayed great potential for the future. I'm already looking forward to their next album. You will either like this album or not and I'd suggest investigating YouTube and listening to the album in full then deciding to purchase or not. Only three songs but they are all long affairs that do not suffer from monotony. Very heavy with beautiful moments psychedelic clarity and intricate melodies. The vocals, which are ethereal and pierce through the heaviness, are perfect and sets this band apart from their contemporaries and peers.


HTC One M9 (2015) Screen Protector Pack, Super Clear by Minotaur (6 Screen Protectors)
HTC One M9 (2015) Screen Protector Pack, Super Clear by Minotaur (6 Screen Protectors)
Offered by Minotaur Accessories
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended and excellent value for money, 29 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I received these screen protectors 2 days ahead of schedule. Very pleased that Minotaur mailed them so quickly upon taking the order.

Easy to install on the HTC One m9 and there's a real sense that these screen protectors will protect the often most delicate part of any mobile phone. Excellent value for money and I think sensible that 6 protectors were included in the pack. For the price, I think they offer better value for money than other more expensive brands.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Megadeth's best Albums in awhile!, 29 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dystopia (Audio CD)
I'm fortunate to own Megadeth's entire catalogue of albums. In my opinion this is one of the band's (well, Dave Mustaine's) best album in awhile.

The album with massive input from the band's new members has energy and driving beats right from the beginning. Great melodies, great songs, lyrics that mean something (often a rare element in metal) and even some cheeky Spanish classical guitar at the end of sone of the songs.

Very impressed and cannot wait to see Megadeth live again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant album from a talented group, 29 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Purple (Audio CD)
I'm a massive fan of Baroness having discovered them some years ago via one of Metal Hammer's monthly CDs.

Despite what some metal heads have stated, they are not a boring band with boring tunes. This album is full of power, heavy guitars, energy, a few delicate moments and some fantastic melodies. The album comes in at around 40 minutes, which is a good length but personally I wish they added a few more songs. In my opinion that's how good this album is. Loved the length of their previous Yellow & Green LP, although this was a double album.

Highly recommend this album for lovers of hard rock and metal alike. All music is a personal preference and it's easy in the internet age to listen to music freely before purchasing. Skip over to the band's YouTube page and give them a damn good listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent slim protective case for HTC One m9, 29 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent protective case for the HTC One m9. Perfect fit and easy to apply to the phone. It has a good slightly brushed feel that should prevent the phone from slipping from the hands. Contains added protection on the corners, which has always been the most sensitive elements of mobile phones to damage and drops. Very small lip around the screen that prevents any damage if the phone is placed on its face (useful to quickly mute the device). Recommended and very good value for money. Excellent all round protection while having a slim form factor.


2 For 1: Hysteria / Adrenalize
2 For 1: Hysteria / Adrenalize
Price: £10.40

5.0 out of 5 stars Two excellent albums at a great price, 16 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This double CD pack was delivered 2 days ahead schedule.

Def Leppard's Hysteria was the first ever album I bought on cassette way back in 1987. Thus I cannot be objective when providing a review. It's an excellent album and arguably Def Leppard at their finest. As with Adrenalize, it is typical Def Leppard and the reason this Sheffield band is loved. Clean guitars, brilliant melodies and great vocals.

This double CD pack is excellent value for money. Initially I only wanted Hysteria but could not find it new for less than £7.99 even in HMV, so Imspent a little extra you receive two albums. There has been some criticism of the cardboard packaging. Have reviewers read the product description before they purchased? Reasonably, what do you expect for the price of two commercially successful albums. Plus, this type of packaging is increasingly becoming the norm for CDs as record companies seek to lower item costs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A doom masterpiece, 15 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A forgotten masterpiece of doom metal. This is not just your standard doom metal album and band, there is a good deal of psychedelia and an eclectic sounds in the mix. This album will finish as quickly as it begins and never fails to disappoint; you will easily become lost in it. One of the best doom albums I've heard in years (despite it being produced in the 80s).

Slayer are back on form. I truly believe this is one of Slayer best albums, up there with Reign in Blood and The Christ Illusion. Highly recommended for all fans of metal.

The accompanying bluray of their live performance is of excellent sound and picture quality, often a rare attribute for live concert films. Captures the energy and excitement of this incredible band live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant stoner doom metal, 21 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: S/t (Audio CD)
This follows in the (relatively) long heritage of doom stoner metal. For a three piece they create big expansive sounds with some impressively dense and often heart crushing sounds. Never a dull moment and the album is over before you know it.

Blackout jokingly call themselves party metal. What a party that must be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended for all lovers of Sabbath doom psychedelic metal. Classic, 21 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Relentless (Audio CD)
I wish I discovered this band earlier in my life. An excellent by an amazing band with a fascinating history. This is a wonderful mixture of Sabbath, doom, stoner and some psychedelia. Each song is as good as it's last and it is easy to see why Relentless is considered a metal classic. I look forward to their new album Curious Volume (2015) too.

Highly recommended.
