Headline News

The Best And Worst Of Heavy Metal In 2016

We're at the end of the year already somehow? It was a big one for me personally as my head banging, bouncer moshing son arrived in May ready to throw the horns straight out of the womb!

There was a whole lot going on in the metal world as well to mark the year of his birth, with about equal parts good, bad, and utterly bizarre.

With the notable exception of one long-dormant mega band whose name is on everyone's lips, it seems like the reunion / reboot craze has finally come to a rest, for now anyway, and we can once again forget about all those broken up '80s and '90s groups seeking another day in the spotlight.

That paved the way for both a crop of new bands (and there were some awesome newcomers this year!) and long-running groups who never called it quits to show us what they could do throughout 2016.

The Good: Metal Highlights of 2016

It was back in 2015 that we started asking why there wasn't more heavy metal invading the world of PC and console gaming, and this year we actually saw some new additions. The top-down bullet hell wonder of "Metal Tales: Fury Of The Guitar Gods" just arrived last month, while the rhythm game / RPG "Metronomicon" landed at the end of September.

The beginning of the year was also marked by the very metaltastic "Slain," drawing heavily from early Castlevania, and while it had an incredibly rocky launch, reviews are steadily getting more positive as patches are released.

On the music front, this was unquestionably the year of thrash!

New albums arrived from Megadeth, Anthrax, Testament, and even the long-awaited return of the band everyone loves to hate, Metallica (although as our reader poll and CROMCarl's review show, there's clearly still some fans out there in the metal underground). More...

Powerwolf Streaming "Out In The Fields" Cover

The upcoming Powerwolf album "Blessed & Possessed" (reviewed here) will be released worldwide on July 17th via Napalm Records.

On top of that there's a ten track bonus tribute album titled "Metallum Nostrum" that features very special cover versions of classic anthems from metal giants including Judas Priest, Savatage, Black Sabbath, and Amon Amarth to name a few.

Today the wolves have released a brand new lyric video for the song "Out In The Fields" which is a cover of the Gary Moore track. Check it out below. Roel Van Helden commented on the song and lyric video:

"Like most of us, I began listening to metal when I was 11 years old. Later I discovered Thin Lizzy, who just like Iron Maiden - had a big influence on me. I still love to spin Gary Moore's records while having a good glass of wine. Also his blues phases were genius. For 'Out in the Fields' we made a few changes, for the musicians under us: The original track is played in 4/4 stroke, but we re-wrote it into 12/8. This way it became more metal. But a good song is functioning in any form."

The "Metallum Nostrum" disc is available with the 2-CD mediabook & all limited editions of "Blessed And Possessed." More...
