CD review SUICIDAL TENDENCIES "World Gone Mad"

(8/10) Finally a new Suicidal Tendencies album again; that was my first thought when I heard about "13" which was released in 2013 - an album that ended a thirteen year lasting period without any studio output of Mike Muir and band. This time it didn't...

CD review MEAT LOAF "Braver Than We Are"

(4/10) Oh boy. This album belongs to the biggest disappointments when it comes to 2016 rock music. Actually the pre-requisits couldn't have been better. The announcement that Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman work together on a new Meat Loaf album was a kickstart...

CD review OPETH "Sorceress"

CD review OPERATION: MINDCRIME "Resurrection"

(6/10) I'm not really sure" if "Resurrection" stays for nomen et omen when it comes to Geoff Tate and his musical ambitions. The singer that celebrated great successes with Queensryche, also having a great voice with a wide range, struggled a bit over...

CD review THEM "Sweet Hollow"

(8/10) If you think that it's a coincidence that the this band's name is the one King Diamond has chose years and years ago for one of his masterpieces, than I can tell you that you're wrong. "Sweet Hallow", the name of Them's debut, is the best King...

CD review INSOMNIUM "Winter's Gate"

(9/10) Waltari did it, Edge Of Sanity did it and now it's Insomnium that does it as well - releasing an album that comes with one song of epical length - a story, a mind-movie, a masterpiece, all in one song on one album. Things started with the guys...

CD review THE QUIREBOYS "Twisted Love"

(9/10) I can remember the moment when I listened the first time to The Quireboys debut back in "A Bit of What You Fancy". It was in 1990 when the guys from London released the album that gave me some jaw-dropping moments. Right at the end of the overdone...

CD review SAHG " Memento Mori"

(8/10) Sahg hail from Bergen, Norway and are a constant factor in metal. Their first three records have been simple numbered and it was their fourth longplayer "Delusion of Grandeur" that broke this pattern. "Memento Mori", the reminder of evanescence,...
