CD review MAD MAX "Thunder, storm and passion"

(8/10) Why does 'thunder', 'storm' and 'passion' sounds so familiar while thinking about Mad Max. Oh yes, those words have been part of the bands first three releases for Roadrunner Records back in the 80's. "Rollin' thunder", "Stormchild" and "Night...

CD review GODSLAVE "Whatever you want" EP

(7/10) I wonder if the world was waiting for this. A young thrash band from Saarbrücken, Germany covers Status Quo. Probably nobody missed this so far. On the other hand - why not? Godslave dared to go for such an experiment. I wouldn't say that it's...

CD review SAHARA SURFERS "High lands"

CD review SAHARA SURFERS "High lands"

(7/10) Imagine: almost 40 degrees celcius, the sun is burning down, cloudless sky, stoney landscape and sweating all over. This sounds like standing in the middle of a desert. But this is how partly the weather has been in Tyrol this summer - at least...

CD review CHRIS CORNELL "Euphoria mourning"

(8/10) "Euphoria morning" was the first solo album by Chris Cornell. The iconic singer and frontman focussed on his solo career and other projects, like Audioslave, after the grunge legend Soundgarden disbanded. Now, 16 years later, the solo debut will...

CD review ANNIHILATOR "Suicide society"

CD review ANNIHILATOR "Suicide society"

(9/10) The fact that Annihilator are still around deserves already a lot of respect. Having had four great records in the beginning, the band had to suffer, like many other bands in metal, from the upcoming grunge boom and the less interest in thrash...

CD review IRON MAIDEN "The book of souls"

(10/10) Iron Maiden's long awaited new album is out. "The book of souls" was released yesterday and the metal community was more than curious about what the iconic six-pieve band recorded. After having listened to the album several times I have to say...

CD review MYRKUR "M"

CD review MYRKUR "M"

(5/10) "M" is the second strike of Danish one woman black metal project Myrkur. And as with the last release also this longplayer is bizarr and extreme. This isn't mainstream at all. This is music that you either like or you dislike. There is no inbetween....

CD review STAHLMANN "CO2"

CD review STAHLMANN "CO2"

(4/10) I don't know what to do with this album. Even though Stahlmann from Germany are around since a few years and scored some wins during this time, they are still building their music on what Rammstein developed years ago. Yes, Stahlmann's music is...

CD review WOLFHEART "Shadow world"

CD review WOLFHEART "Shadow world"

(8/10) It wasn't too long ago that Wolfheart, the band of mastermind Tuomas Saukkonen, released the debut album "Winterborn" via Spinefarm Records. This was actually a kind of re-release since the disc was self-financed and self-released already in 2013....

CD review BATTLECROSS "Rise to power"

Veröffentlicht am 3. September 2015 von Markus W. in Battleaxe, Thrash Metal, Speed Metal, Death Metal, News, CD Review, Heavy Metal

CD review BATTLECROSS "Rise to power"

(6/10) "Rise to power" is the fourth album from Michigan based five-piece Battlecross. The new full-length record comes with ten new tracks that are positioned somewhere between thrash and death. So far, so good. Sometimes such a melange works well, but...

CD review SPEEDTRAP "Straight shooter"

CD review SPEEDTRAP "Straight shooter"

(8/10) What started with the band's debut "Powerdose" two years ago find it's continuation on the new longplayer "Straight shooter". Speedtrap anchored the main component of their sound already in their name - 'speed'. The guys from Finland are fast,...
