CD review UGLY KID JOE "Uglier than they used to be"

(7/10) There is no doubt that the most successful times of Ugly Kid Joe are over. But that doesn't mean that the guys from California don't rock anymore. Actually it's fun to have them back - a bit older but still with the right attitude. It almost feels...

CD review SKEPTICISM "Ordeal"

CD review GRIM VAN DOOM "Grim love"

(7/10) Grim Van Doom, a name that sticks out. And it's a well chosen one too. The 'grim factor' of the four piece is perfectly supported by the aggressive and dark vocals of singer Lansky, while the music of the band is slow and doomy. Grim Van Doom was...

CD review MOSFET "Screwing the devil"

(7/10) If you have a look on the song titles you get the feeling that Mosfet is the thrash version of Steel Panther. Tracks like "Deep dark hole" and "Booze, boobs and bedroom battlest" speak for itself. The guys don't take things too serious and they...

CD review RIWEN "The cold"
