CD review CREMATORY "Monument"

(7/10) If Crematory's new album is a real 'monument' is something you need to answer for yourself, but one thing is for sure a given: Crematory is a steady part of the goth metal scene. The guys from Mannheim, Germany started in 1991, with a first demo...

CD review ASKING ALEXANDIA "The Black"

(7/10) Asking Alexandria's new album became a pretty dark one, at least the artwork doesn't express a very positive atmosphere and naming the disc "The Black" doesn't sound like flower-power either. The UK-based five piece uses the album as an outlet...

CD review CULT OF LUNA & JULIE CHRISTMAS "Mariner"

(8/10) Cult Of Luna's new album comes with only five song, but these pack a punch. In the end this record provides you with 55 minutes of confusion, experiments, intensity and depth, unveiling a new approach to post-metal. The guys from Cult Of Luna slightly...

CD review BLACK STONE CHERRY "Kentucky"

CD review BLACK STONE CHERRY "Kentucky"

(8/10) A new Black Stone Cherry album is like walking on a slagline. If the sound of a new record moves a bit too much towards the left it will become too much mainstream and too little rock. And if the movement is a bit too much to the right it gets...

CD review MOONSORROW "Jumalten Aika"

(8/10) The only walls I can accept nowadays are walls of sound. Actually I love them. This time it's Finnish pagan powerhouse that builds those walls on their new longplayer "Jumalten Aika". The guys from Helsinki, Finland do not need a lot of songs to...

CD review LITA FORD "Time Capsule"

CD review LITA FORD "Time Capsule"

(6/10) Good and bad news from Lita Ford. The good news is that Lita's new album is far away from the very strange "Wicked Wonderland" release. The bad news is that "Time Capsule" can't live up to the successful 80's releases either. It doesn't even get...

CD review THUNDERSTONE "Apocalypse Again"

(8/10) Thunderstone is one of these bands which proves that Finland has also a very solid melodic metal scene. The band, founded in 2002, always stood partly in the shadow of genre kings like Stratovarious and Sonata Arctica. But knowing the ups and downs...
