Christbait – EP Review

Even though there’s only 3 tracks, with a running time of 31 minutes, there’s plenty of music here. Furthermore, there’s enough variety within each track that they all flow well.

Firstborne – EP Review

Chris Adler surprised many with the announcement of his new band, Firstborne, as well as the debut EP. I say surprised because everyone in the band managed to keep this under wraps until recently. So, how did this come about? And what does it sound like?

Underrated Lineups Vol. 2

When I started thinking about underrated lineups, I could list 4 lineups from 4 bands off the top of my head. I covered 2 of them in Vol. 1. Now, it is time for an update with 2 more!

Underrated Lineups Vol. 1

These lineups are not necessarily my favorite lineups of these bands. Some of them may be; but it’s not necessarily the case with all of them. It’s just my way of acknowledging that some lineups needed more time to truly show the fans what they could do.

Testament – Titans of Creation (Album Review)

Titans of Creation does not steer too far from the last few albums with regards to genres explored. It is, however, a bit more melodic, most likely due to a larger contribution from Alex Skolnick. Today’s Testament has one of the best line-ups of any metal band. Every musician is at the top of their game. They all have slightly different tastes in music, which, when mixed in their melting pot, creates some of the best metal you can hear.

Archon Angel – Fallen (Album Review)

The musicians are solid and the concept allowed them to write with a fresh new approach. The best part? Zak sings as well as he ever did.

The Thinking Man’s Metal Blog

There are two reasons why I started this web site:
  1. I enjoy discovering insights about a band, a particular album or a song, or a certain musical event. I believe the more you know what went into a certain musical piece, the richer your listening experience will be. I hope to contribute to your experience by sharing what I’ve discovered along the way.
  2. Unfortunately many rock and metal sites these days focus on click-bait articles and try to generate interest by taking quotes out of context and using false information. Whether they do these intentionally or not is up for debate, but the fact is there are not many sites that focus on accuracy of their information.
    Megadepth is a blog that focuses on hard rock and heavy metal bands and musicians. But unlike many other sites/blogs that do quick posts without the proper research, I dedicate my time to in-depth articles. I always add my opinion in the articles, but you will know that I base them on facts; not rumors.

Checking out Positive Grid’s Spark

While some features have room for improvement, the Spark remains an awesome practice companion even in its current form. It sounds great and is extremely easy to use. It will free up a lot of your time so you can focus on your playing. Everything else – the smart jam, song analysis, Bluetooth connection, audio interface capability – is just icing on the cake.

Underrated Albums: Testament – The Gathering

The Gathering is appreciated more today than it was when it was released, but it still remains underrated. This is my appreciation for one of the best metal albums of the ’90s.
