Time & Eternal

An Album By


Review by

Colossus, from South Dakota, brings a fresh feel to the metalcore scene with Time and Eternal. The opening track, “Time,” lays the foundation of what has all the promise of a great album. With songs set to different time signatures and tempos, the question is whether the band can keep up with its own creation, or if the record will get too far ahead of it to hold on. Given the sound and the message of the lyrics, Colossus is in for a ride that the group is fully prepared for, and thus, this album lives up to the promise.

Time and Eternal is overflowing with crisp drums and clean guitars; it is tight instrumentally. But it’s the lyrics that really set this release apart. The band constantly refers to itself and the listener as a “we,” allowing the audience to stand side-by-side with the band and its convictions.

If Time and Eternal is just the beginning, we could be looking at a long career for Colossus, with releases that continue to progress and impress.

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
