AllMusic Review by

Compiled by the staff at Revolver magazine, THE FUTURE IS METAL is a carefully prepared sampler of the most cutting edge heavy metal of the early 2000s. The Revolver staff lives up to its reputation as tastemakers by hand-picking the best from the legions of bands playing alternative metal (Trivium), grindcore (As I Lay Dying), death metal (Lamb of God), and post-hardcore (The Bled), among other styles. If fact, as a primer on the most relevant heavy bands of the early 21st century, it's hard to go wrong with this smartly put-together set.
