The word “incorruptible” has different meanings. The first, “not susceptible to corruption, especially by bribery,” and the second, “not subject to death or decay; everlasting.” And thus the title of Iced Earth’s 12th album now seems perfectly fitting. This album is a culmination of the band’s career—powerful vocals, powerful lyrics, power chords, power ballads and galloping rhythms that take the band’s ’90s-era sound and transpose it into 2017. And yes, the result is powerful. (more…)

Sister Sin had a fairly successful 13-year career, which saw the Swedish hard rockers sell thousands of records and play all over the world, including the 2014 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, where we interviewed vocalist Liv Sin (read here), who also stakes claim as one of Revolver’s “Hottest Chicks in Metal.” When Sister Sin unexpectedly called it quits in 2015, Liv Sin—the band—was born. And what a rebirth it is. Follow Me sees Liv transforming into full-on-metal, while channeling the classic sound from the late ’80s and early ’90s.

It’s been 30 years since the formation of Bay Area thrashers, Testament—30 years since it released its debut album, The Legacy. The band’s current label, Nuclear Blast Records,also is celebrating its 30-year anniversary. And let’s not forget the fantastic new album, The Brotherhood of the Snake (read review). It was the perfect storm for Testament—forever in the shadows of “The Big Four”—to showcase its own impressive discography and different eras of the band. After 30 years and thousands of live shows, this one could have been its last—it was that good! (more…)
