CD review THE NEW BLACK "A Monster's Life"

(8/10) It's hard to describe The New Black's sound. The guys describe themselfs as a mixture of the Black Label Society with some Nickelback and Pantera embedded. I think it describes the new album pretty well. "A Monster's Life" is the bands fourth album...

CD review SANGUINE "Black Sheep"

(7/10) Sanguine are from Exeter, UK and the band's passion is modern metal. The guys started around 2004 and after some demos the debut is locked and loaded. "Black Sheep" stands for modern metal that reminded me to Italian Lacuna Coil. Heavy guitar riffs,...

CD review SKINDRED "Volume"

(8/10) If you want to mix an excellent drink you need the right in incrediences and the right way how to put them together. The new Skindred album reminded me very much to this metaphor. Skindred's crossover isn't new, at least the idea isn't something...
