CD review HELMET "Dead to the World"

(7/10) I have to admit it right in the begining that Helmet always belonged to my favorite bands in alternative metal. Records such as "Meantime" and "Aftertaste" include milestones in alternative metal that are build on walls of riffs and the typical...

Live review ZODIAC/RAVENEYE/HONEYMOON DISEASE, Gebr. de Nobel, Leiden, 06.10.2016

Leiden is a city in The Netherlands that is well known for their university. But 'leiden' also means 'suffering' in German, a double meaning that describes this Thursday evening very well. It was at no point suffering to be part of this concert with three...

CD review ALTER BRIDGE "The Last Hero"

(9/10) It was in an interview I had with Mark Tremonti at the end of last year when he mentioned that the beginning of 2016 will be the starting point for working on the next Alter Bridge album. Having heard this excitement was pretty high and now, nine...

CD review TRUCKFIGHTERS "V"

(7/10) Swedish rocker Truckfighters are pretty straight forward when it comes to their neewest album. It's their fifth longplayer and guess what they called it - "V". Can't be more clear than that. OK, what does "V" contain? First of all it comes with...

CD review GIRAFFE TONGUE ORCHESTRA "Broken Lines"

(8/10) The first thing that stands out is the band's unusual name. Giraffe Tongue Orchestra sounds strange and give you no idea of what to expect. It was a surprise egg for me too, but when I read who's part of this band things got clearer. Giraffe Tongue...

CD review RAVENEYE "Nova"

(8/10) One of the newcomers in hardrock this year are RavenEye from the UK. The three-piece was founded in 2014 by guitarist/singer Oli Brown and bassplayer Aaron Spiers. So far the guys didn't release more than an EP in 2015 which was called "Breaking...

CD review FAITH NO MORE "King for Day...Fool for a Lifetime" & "Album of the Year" re-issue

Introducing Faith No More feels like carrying sand to the beach. Of course, every fan of rock and metal music has at least heard about the guys before. Faith No More can look back to an outstanding success in rock history, creating a new genre and a new...

CD review LITTLE BROTHER ELI "Cold Tales"

(7/10) The band's name might be a bit misleading, or maybe it was only me who had something totally different in mind when I read the Little Brother Eli for the first time. I can't really say what kind of music I expected but it for sure wasn't good quality...

CD review SHIT THE COW "One With the Devil"

(7/10) I can't even remember anymore what pulled my attention towards Shit The Cow. I guess it was the unusual name of the band that made me curious some years ago. It was the band's sophomore EP "Salt of the Earth" that was the first one I reviewed at...

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"

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...
