Dream Evil

Dream Evil "Dragon Slayer" (Century Media) No way, dude.  What's this?  Heavy metal.    What they singin' dude?  Chasing the dragon.  That's too funny.  This dude I know called the Magic Gnome, he...

Review: Entwine

Entwine "Time Of Despair" (Century Media) Morose plodding Goth metal to commit suicide by.  Seriously, buy this album and kill yourself.  I'm not joking.  You'll do the band a favor by purchasing their...
