CD review LORDS OF BLACK "II"

(8/10) Spanish powerhouse Lords Of Black is interesting for two reasons. First of all the guys from Madrid releases with "II" their second album which is full of pretty good power metal hymns. Each of these is well-crafted and csn easily love up to international...

CD review IAMTHEMORNING "Lighthouse"

(8/10) It was one and a half years ago when I got the first album from IAmTheMorning and the first thing that stood out was the name itself, for two reasons. The name itself is unusual for metal and the way it's written attracts attention too. That the...

CD review ACE FREHLEY "Origins Vol. 1"

CD review LIZZIES "Good Luck"

(5/10) Lizzies is a four piece from Madrid, Spain and it feels like the girls want to be the Southern Europe equivalent to Girlschool. At least there are some parallels in the sense of four girls playing straigh forward classic metal that is very much...

CD reviw MR. BISON "Asteriod"

CD review FILTER "Crazy Eyes"

(8/10) Even tough I'm more into metal, I always had a certain interest in industrial rock too. Regardless if it's Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson or Ministry, I have to say that the power those bands create(d) by using samples and keyboards is massive. Filter...

CD review IHSAHN "Arktis"

(9/10) New Ihsahn albums are always a kind of surprise egg. You never really know what to expect. The only assumption that is always true is, that you need to expect the unexpected and the new album confirms this thought. Before you get a chance to get...

CD review BLESSED HELLRIDE "Bastards & Outlaws"

(7/10) The first thing that comes to your mind if you hear 'Blessed Hellride' is the Black Label Society album "The Blessed Hellride" from 2003. I don't know if this record was the initial spark for Blessed Hellride to start as a band, but name and sound...

CD review ZAKK WYLDE "Book of Shadows II"

(8/10) Imagine the picture of a cabin at the riverside, you’re sitting there on a rocking chair, watching the sunset with a cold glass of beer in your hand, reflecting on your life. This is what I was thinking while listening to Zakk Wylde’s newest acoustic...
