German thrash group Dew-Scented are coming up on their 20th anniversary, having formed in 1992. They haven't changed a bit over the course of eight studio albums, though -- just as each one's title begins with the letter "I," each one offers a punishing but clean and melodic thrash sound. They're not aiming for crossover with clean choruses, but rather pursuing the same pounding, headbanging sound as Arch Enemy, the Haunted, and the Crown. Guitarists Michael Borchers and Martin Walczak carve out riffs like lumberjacks sculpting with chainsaws, as bassist Alexander Pahl and drummer Marc-Andrée Dieken keep the rhythm pounding endlessly forward. Vocalist Leif Jensen has a hoarse, bloody-throated roar that's frequently incomprehensible, but not unlike that of Tomas Lindberg, who's sort of the paradigm for this kind of thing, and it suits the punishing music perfectly. Both guitarists make their studio debut with this record, having joined the group in 2008, and Borchers' solos are fluid and arise organically out of the songs rather than being mere excuses for squealing whammy-bar abuse. Like many thrash acts in the 21st century, Dew-Scented don't write instantly memorable songs, but heard as part of a live set, any track here (save the opening and closing instrumentals) would turn the pit into a surging mass of superheated colliding flesh, and that's the point of the exercise, after all.

1972: The Album’s Golden Year

1972 was a monumental year for albums. From the The Rolling Stones to Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin to Big Star, there was an abundance of artists releasing career-defining and redefining music. Here we make our case for ten of the best.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

Metallica, the Path to Glory

Having sold 125 million albums across the globe, including some 30 million copies of their “Black Album”, Metallica is among the unlikeliest of pop sensations to come out of the last half-century. So how did a heavy metal band with such a convoluted song structure end up on par with music from the likes of Madonna and Michael Jackson? By following their instincts and sheer determination. Let’s return to the roots of the most famous heavy metal band in history.
