CD review J.B.O. "Deutsche Vita"

(4/10) A well told joke doesn't get better by repeating it again and again and again. The same goes for J.B.O. and their fun metal. What was fun and a loud laugh at the end of the 90's sounds 20 years later more like deperate attempt to reviltalize the...

CD review SAVAGE HANDS "Barely Dead"

(7/10) Reading the bands name, Savage Hands, made me think of a powerful metal outfit, dressed in leather and denim. Wrong assumption I must conclude after having given this album a first spin. Savage Hands has nothing to do with traditional metal. The...

CD review MYLES KENNEDY "Year of the Tiger"

(8/10) I guess it’s not necessary to introduce Myles Kennedy. The singer from Boston is well known as being the frontman of Slash as well as he is the singer of Alter Bridge. This time the singer with the iconic voice takes a slightly different musical...

CD review MINISTRY "AmeriKKKant"

(8/10) It's no secret that the last two Ministry longplayers didn't belong to the best things Al Jourgensen ever brought to table. "From Beer to Eternity" as well as "Relapse" sounded uninspired and bloodless. Creativity and energy were lacking; records...

CD review JUDAS PRIEST "Firepower"

(9/10) The moment that metal pioneers of Judas Priest announces a new album leads to excitement, expectations and guessing when it comes to sound and songs. All this also happened the moment when the Metal Gods announced their 18th studio album “Firepower”....

CD review NIGHTWISH "Decades"

(*/10) Introducing Finnish symphonic rockers of Nightwish feels like carrying sand to the beach. Tuomas Holopainen and band are more than 20 years in business, a good moment to look back on all the band's achievements of two decades. "Decades" is such...

CD review TURNSTILE "Time & Space"

(8/10) Baltimore-based hardcore outfit Turnstile published their second album "Time & Space" a few days ago, a longplayer that releases energy with every song that ended up on the tracklist. Turnstile's sound is based on some hardcore roots, but it's...
