CD review KUOLEMANLAAKSO M. LAAKSO "Vol.1: The Gothic Tapes"

(7/10) It's not that easy to place this album. Is this now a new release of Kuolemanlaakso? Not really. Is it a solo album of M. Laakso? Yes, at least to a certain extend. "Vol.1 - The Gothic Tapes" is neither death nor doom. It's like what the title...

CD review HELSTAR "Vampiro"

(7/10) Helstar isn't one of these bands that releases records on a very regular base. Sometimes it took the guys 1-2 years while the gap between "Glory of Chaos" and "The Wicked Nest" was four years. However, Helstar is back these days with a brand new...

CD review DARK FOREST "Beyond the Veil"

(8/10) If you belong to the group of metalheads that includes Stormwitch's "The Beauty and the Beast" to their personal favorites than you should check-out this album. After the first notes of "Beyond the Veil" I felt like being back in the 80's when...

CD review NEW MODEL ARMY "Winter"

(8/10) It was end of the eighties when I heard New Model Army for the first time. It was on almost endless rotation every weekend in the local underground club and I can't say how often they played "51st State" and "Vagabonds". Especially the latter was...

CD review MOTOROWL "Om Generator"

(8/10) Motorowl from Germany wasn't a band I had on my metal radar until today. Not a too big of a surprise since the guys from Thuringia started in 2014. The bigger 'aha-effect' was more their new album "Om Generation" and and the level of maturity the...

CD review EVERGREY "The Storm Within"

(8/10) After 20 years in metal we can't say that Evergrey is the new kid on the block.The band can look band on a rich history that is documented in nine chapters. "The Storm Within" is the next one that will be released beginning of September. Some piano...
