Treasure Seeker - A tribute to the past 3.5/5 - KIT
Tredegar - s/t 3/5 - MICHAEL
Triaxis - Rage and retribution 4/5 (excellent 2nd CD of female fronted traditional/heavy metal similar to Phoenix Reign, Crystal Viper, Rampart, Venia, Seventh Seal, etc.) - CLINT
Triaxis - Key to the kingdom 3.5/5 (great female fronted traditional/heavy metal debut a la Twilight Odyssey, Phoenix Reign, Rampart, Crystal Viper and Seventh Seal) - CLINT
Tribuzy - Execution 3.5/5 (worthy traditional power metal debut from Brazil whose all-star cast includes Dickinson, Kiske, Sinner, and others) - KIT
Trick or Treat - Rabbits' hill pt. 1 3.5/5 (power metal band’s 3rd CD that’s an awesome concept based on Watership Down, with guest appearance by Andre Matos) - MICHAEL
Trick or Treat - Tin soldiers 4/5 Trick or Treat Review - MICHAEL
Trick or Treat - Evil needs candy too 3.5/5 - MICHAEL
Triddana - Ripe for rebellion 3.5/5 Triddana Review - CREAG
Trigger Zone - Bone crusher 2.5/5 (mixed-bag demo compilation from early-90s Ohio thrashers reflecting groove confusion of the times in places) - KIT
Trillium - Alloy 3/5 (symphonic/gothic metal debut with well-known vocalist Amanda Somerville; solid, but I was expecting it to be even better) - CLINT
Trinakrius - The black hole mind 3/5 (2nd CD of 2nd-tier classic doom from Italy, let down by progressive/experimental parts and pointless "Paranoid" cover) - KIT
Trinakrius - Sancta inquisitio 3.5/5 (traditional melodic doom metal debut from Italy that begins slowly but improves markedly as the CD progresses) - KIT
Triosphere - The road less travelled 4.5/5 (magnificent 2nd CD of female fronted progressive power metal with sensational vocals and very memorable songs) - CLINT
Triosphere - The road less travelled 4.5/5 Triosphere Review - SEAN
Triosphere - Onwards 4/5 (very competitive heavy/power metal debut in the style of Firewind, but with a female vocalist similar to Eva of Dakrua or Magali of Beautiful Sin) - CLINT
Triptykon - Eparistera daimones 4/5 (massive, crushingly heavy death/doom/gothic metal debut, and a perfect continuation of Celtic Frost's 'Monotheist') - CREAG
Tristania - Darkest white 3/5 (though I still greatly miss their early years, this gothic metal band with a variety of vocalists, has provided a CD with a fair amount of catchy songs) - CLINT
Tristania - Rubicon 2.5/5 (popular gothic metal band returns with a CD that has its moments, but is overall fairly boring and nothing compared to their amazing past) - CLINT
Tristania - Illumination 3/5 (5th CD that's an improvement over their previous 'Ashes', but doesn't match their best material; reminds me of Theatre of Tragedy's 'Aegis') - CLINT
Tristania - Ashes 2/5 (one of the more popular gothic metal bands return with a CD that hasn't grabbed me like their previous CDs) - CLINT
Tristania - World of glass 4/5 (3rd CD of heavier gothic metal competing with Sirenia and Penumbra) - CLINT
Tristania - Beyond the veil 4.5/5 - CLINT
Tristania - Widow's weeds 4/5 - CLINT
Trivium - In waves 3.5/5 (everyone's favorite whipping boy delivers another crushing, melodic slab of modern metal that open-minded folks may dig) - KIT
Trivium - Shogun 3/5 (4th CD that's an identity crisis; they can't decide between killer melodic thrash or constipated metalcore, so they try both, satisfying no one) - KIT
Trivium - The crusade 3.5/5 (youthful trendy U.S. band ditches metalcore and effectively embraces old-school thrash and Hetfield-style vocals; surprisingly good) - KIT
Trivium - Ascendancy 2.5/5 - KIT
Trivium - Ember to inferno 2.5/5 - KIT

Trophallaxy - Resilience 4/5 (extra-impressive 2nd CD that’s much better than the debut, in all areas; French female fronted power metal with some symphonic/gothic elements) - CLINT
Trophallaxy - Dawnfall 3/5 (promising French female fronted power metal debut with symphonic highlights; quite similar to Wildpath) - CLINT

Troy - World in flames 4.5/5 Troy Review - CLINT
Trust X - At the edge of eternity 4/5 (terrific Russian-language power metal debut that’s a blind purchase for fans of Epidemia, Terran, Arktida, Retriem, Kolizey, etc.) - CLINT

Tuatha de Danann - Trova di danu 4.5/5 Tuatha de Danann Review - CREAG
Tuatha de Danann - The delirium has just began 3.5/5 (the usual joyous melodies meet their darkest and most progressive themes to date; too short though) - CREAG
Tuatha de Danann - Tingeralatingadun 3.5/5 (much-improved full-length debut from the madcap Brazilians) - CREAG
Tuatha de Danann - s/t 2.5/5 (uneven EP/demo compilation that only hints at the band's true potential) - CREAG
Tuck From Hell - Thrashing 3.5/5 (debut worshiping Testament as total disciples of the mosh; fans of F.K.U., Enforcer and Onslaught heed the new order) - MICHAEL
Tular - The truth behind the mask 2.5/5 (standard female fronted symphonic/gothic metal debut with good songwriting and vocals, but it's hurt by a fairly poor production) - CLINT
Turbo - Straznik swiatia (hopefully coming soon)

Turbo - Kawaleria szatana 3/5 - MICHAEL
Turbo - Smak ciszy 3/5 - MICHAEL
Turbo - Doros'e dzie ci 3/5 - MICHAEL
Turbocharged - Antixtian 3/5 (debut that’s Gwar meets Sarcafago, Aura Noir or Nifelheim; these Swedes spout blasphemous rumors and utter drunken wisdom) - MICHAEL
Turilli, Luca - The infinite wonders of creation 2.5/5 (fairly boring 3rd CD from the mastermind behind Rhapsody; I greatly prefer his other solo project Dreamquest) - CLINT

Tush - Waiting for the storm 3.5/5 - KIT
Tverd - Follow the sun's way 3.5/5 (great Russian-language folk metal debut with both female and male vocals; like a blend of Kalevala, Alkonost, Dalriada and Fearlight) - CLINT
Twelfth Gate - Threshold of revelation (hopefully coming soon)
Twelfth Gate - The summoning 1.5/5 (modernish American dark metal inspired by Nevermore, but lacking in songs and melodies) - KIT
Twelve Winters - Defending the sacred 2.5/5 (fairly catchy debut that circles heavy metal, power metal and thrash; is female fronted, but there are some death vocals) - CLINT

Twisted Tower Dire - Netherworlds 4/5 Twisted Tower Dire Review - CRAIG
Twisted Tower Dire - Netherworlds 3/5 (oddly subpar outing from Virginia traditional metal veterans; harkening back to more of an early-80s style with poor production) - KIT

Twisted Tower Dire - The isle of hydra 4.5/5 Twisted Tower Dire Review - CRAIG

Tysondog - Crimes of insanity 3.5/5 - MICHAEL
Tysondog - Beware of the dog 3.5/5 - MICHAEL
