Editorial Reviews

"Who is Nekrogoblikon? Where did they come from? What is goblin metal? Why write songs about goblins? When will I stop feeling so alone?" The answer to all of your questions is it really doesn't matter. What you should instead be concerned with is the fact that your life is probably not nearly as satisfying as it could be, and Nekrogoblikon is here to fix that. Their new album Heavy Meta has not only been in the works for the last 49 years, but also is the first album in history to receive three Grammys (and even one Oscar) without ever having been completed or released. In 1987, psychiatrists worldwide began prescribing audio snippets of the in-progress album to patients in lieu of antidepressants, and by 2001 the album had gone "Secret Platinum." However, it wasn't until now that Nekrogoblikon felt that the general masses would be able to handle the concentrated dose of pure joy that is Heavy Meta. The album arrives on June 2nd, 2015, and is promised by the band to be both "really, really good" and "something people will want to buy...or torrent."

The band is great and the album is great! I was surprised to find that the vinyl sold on Amazon is a picture disc because it was so cheap, based on the price I assumed it was standard vinyl. Oh, and it comes with a free digital download card too.

In 2006, this six-piece band from Los Angles formed, and introduced the world to their self proclaimed sub-genre of goblin metal. Heavy Meta will be their third full-length album, and now with a strong following and some recordings behind them, it will be interesting to follow their progression and observe where their newest product has landed them.

One of the major draws to Nekrogoblikon is the unique style of melodic death metal they perform. Whenever listening to them, there is no mistake, its Nekcrogoblikon. In fact, the distinction is so great, that it's difficult to find bands with similar composition. Their twist on metal incorporates a folk aspect, as well as a "party metal" feel. Characteristics include well crafted hooks, a keyboard, catchy choruses, and a goofy, circus-like comical approach. This may sound interesting, so if you're not familiar with the band, it's best explained by simply listening to it.

I believe Heavy Meta is the best album Nekrogoblikon has released so far in their career. Each song is very distinguishable; it's sometimes a certain tempo, other times, a catchy chorus. Regardless of what characteristic brands each song, one inescapable observation is the mature congruency the entire release has. In the past, there were some catchy songs that would prominently stand out, but in-between, you were left with some music that sounded as if it was attempting to be up to par. The result would be a decent product, but with Heavy Meta, you really get your money's worth. The one negative in this, however, is the album is only around 36 minutes long, and the way it flows, the end is there before you know it. This also affects the replay value.

This album has been on permanent rotational play since I got it. I guess genre wise it would probably be considered black metal but it goes into a lot of different territories and experiments with a lot of different sounds. Certain tracks take elements from prog or death metal, but it goes as far as to delve into pop-punk, rap, and even swing. While that may sound all over the place, it's all underscored by Nekrogoblikon's distinctive take on the Children of Bodom-esque "melodic black metal with a keyboard" sound that's present in every track, so you really get to have your cake and eat it too in an album that's both experimental AND consistent.

This is one of the best and most interesting albums I've heard in a long time. Also the songs are about Goblins.

My favorite Nekrogoblikon album! It's got a perfect flow from beginning to end, both in concept and musically...it's rather shirt for a metal album, but it's so damn perfect, in story, in mood, in everything, that one can't possibly imagine anything else being added to it...anything else would be filler and destroy what is perfect. This album is perfect. That is all.

Makes you want to rip through your enemies with reckless abandon and bathe in their various juices. Ten outta ten, would goblin again.
