CD review KNIFEWORLD "The unravelling"

(7/10) This is heavy stuff. Not in the sense of heavy metal. More in the sense of ‚heavy to digest’. Already at this stage of the review you should know, that you should keep your hands off from this album if you're looking for straight forward metal...

CD review OVERKILL "White devil armory"

(9/10) I don't think, that I have to introduce Overkill to you. The New Jersey thrashers are already many many years around. I can still remember the time when I heard their sound for the first time. It was in the mid of the 80's when a friend of mine...

CD review JAY SMITH "King of man"

(6/10) Some releases are not that easy to predict than others. I had this with the new album of Swedish singer/guitarist Jay Smith. The guy from Helsingborg won the Swedish Idol competition in 2010. After relasing his debut in 2010 Smith worked on the...

CD review VIRGIN STEELE "Invictus" re-release

(8/10) "Invictus" is the third and last part of the "Marriage of Heaven and Hell" trilogy from the New York based power metal band Virgin Steel. In total it's their eighth album and a pretty good one too. For me personally all the three records are, together...

CD review MELIAH RAGE "Warrior"

(7/10) If you look on the last years of Meliah Rage's history you could partly imagine why they called their new album, number eight in the bands history, "Warrior". After releasing the "Dead to the world" the band from Boston went through a tougher period....

CD review FAIR WARNING "The box"

(*/10) If you think about Hannover and music you often end up with the Scorpions. But there is more. Fair Warning is one of these bands from Hannover, which always stood in the shadow of the famous quintet - at least in Germany . For the ones who never...

CD review STEEL PROPHET "Omniscient'

(7/10) California based metal band Steel Prophet have been in the studio again. Already this is good news, since they had their latest full-length release in 2004. So it took the band 10 years for a new album. What a long period of time. In order to not...

CD review UNISONIC "Light of dawn"

(9/10) I wanted to try writing this review without mentioning Helloween. I failed in the first sentence. Unisonic is back with a new album. This is great news. What started more as a project from Michael Kiske (v), Kai Hansen (g), Mandy Meyer (g), Dennis...

CD review GRAVE DIGGER "Return of the reaper"

(8/10) The reaper is back. Album number seventeen (incl. the Digger period) in the bands history. Wow. The band is now more than 30 years around and went through all the ups and downs. They survived the un-metalic nineties as well as their weakest release...
