Monsters Of Rock 2016 with RITCHIE BLACKMORE'S RAINBOW

I think it is something a lot of metal and rock fans were hoping for but never thought that it would become real. Guitar master Ritchie Blackmore activates the legendary Rainbow for a couple of shows in summer 2016. Two of those concerts will be in Germant,...

CD review KAMPFAR "Profan"

(8/10) Norwegian black metal horde Kampfar has finished the work for their seventh longplayer that got the title "Profan". Often' profane' is used to express that something is common and usual. This isn't valid for Kampfar's new longplayer. Just the fact...

CD review HONG FAUX "A Message from Dystopia"

(8/10) That Stockholm, Sweden is a melting pot for rock and metal bands isn't new information. A lot of Swedish groups call the capitol of the Scandinavian country their hometown. Hong Faux belongs to them. The four guys are now up and running as Hong...

CD review DIABLO "Silver Horizon"

(6/10) Diable aren't rookies. The band was founded at the end of the former century and the guys scored some decent results in their home country Finland and during the last years also in Europe. Diablo is inspired by melodic death metal the Gothenburg-style....

Live review ANNIHILATOR/HARLOTT/ARCHER , Haarlem, 05.11.2015

After having played in Tilburg the night before it was Haarlem that hosted the second show of Annihilator, Harlott and Archer in Holland. This time it have been the guys from Santa Cruz, Archer, that got the role of the opening act. Their more traditional...

CD review VANDEN PLAS "Chronicles of the Immortals: Netherworld II"

(8/10) Finally - Vanden Plas releases the second part of their Netherworld saga. The complex story was too much for just one album and that's why Andy Kuntz and bandmates decided to create a double header. Like in the first part the story about life,...

CD review JUNKSTARS "This Means War"

(7/10) Unusual cover, great music. That's how I sum up Junkstars new album "This Means War". Max Malmqvist, Mathias Wanneberg and Tobbe Ljungqvist founded the band back in 2012 in Stockholm, Sweden. The three guys stand for punk rock without any bells...

CD review SCORPIONS "Savage Amusement" 50th Anniversary Edition

CD review SCORPIONS "Savage Amusement" 50th Anniversary Edition

(*/10) “Savage Amusement” followed the highly successful “Love at First Sting” and it was the first album that couldn’t convince as much as the predecessor. Maybe it was due to the stressful life on tour or it was due to the more commercial metal that...

CD review FROM ASHES TO NEW "Downfall"

(6/10) Lancaster, PA-based From Ashes To New released their first disc, which was an EP called "From Ashes to New", in 2013. A second EP is in the starting blocks. "Downfall" is the name of the this release and it comes with four new tracks. From Ashes...

CD review SCORPIONS "World Wide Live" 50th Anniversary Edition

Even though "Tokyo Tapes" was already an excellent live record, the 1985 release "World Wide Live" is the by far best compilation the band ever published. This live album belongs, together with Iron Maiden "Live After Death" and Deep Purple's "Made in...

CD review SCORPIONS "Love At First Sting" 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

"Blackout" was the worldwide breakthrough for the Scorpions, followed by extensive touring. The question that needed an answer was, if all this will have an impact on the next studio release. It might had an effect, but for sure no bad one. "Love At First...

CD review SCORPIONS "Blackout" 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

"Blackout" was my first Scorpions album and I think that it's still the best longplayer the band from Hannover ever released. The combination of heavy songs and the outstanding artwork by Gottfried Helnwein is an excellent symbiosis that makes the album...

CD review SCORPIONS "Animal Magnetism" 50th Anniversary Edition

(*/10) Scorpions started with "Animal Magnetism" into the 80's - a decade that was supposed to become one of the most successful ones in the band's history. The longplayer shows in a very good way the development of the band over time. And it is the real...

CD review RAM "Svbversvm"

CD review RAM "Svbversvm"

(9/10) If young dudes play oldschool music, I guess this is what you call a 'revival'. However, wording isn't important. It's the music that count's and there I have to say that Swedish metal gang RAM made a big step forward. Starting in 1999 the guys...
