BLACK SABBATH "The End"

Actually 'the end' happened already some months ago. Black Sabbath, the iconic four-piece band that influenced metal and rock music as much as probably no one else, said goodbye after almost 50 years in rock. After half of a century the band returned...

CD review SAINT VITUS "Live Vo.2"

(8/10) It's Black Sabbath that normally gets a lot of credits when it comes to doom metal and yes, the guys initiated a genre that inspired many bands up till now. Iommi's guitar riffs are unique and metal would sound different today without Black Sabbath....

CD review WRETCH "Wretch"

(7/10) Wretch, that's Karl (g/v), Chris (d) and Bryce (b), guys, that are deeply rooted in oldschool doom metal. This powerful trio released their self-titled album a few days ago. "Wretch" includes seven songs, each of them a slow riff monster in the...

CD review CHURCH OF MISERY "And Then There Were None..."

(7/10) For some of you metal from Japan means bands like Loudness, but there is more to explore in the land of the rising sun. One of those bands that never really made it on the radar is Church Of Misery. Actually this isn't totally right, since the...

CD review BRIMSTONE COVEN "Black Magic"

(6/10) That Brimstone Coven are inspired by Black Sabbath isn't a secret. The band's debut wasn't a real jaw-dropping expereince and I was curious if the second release will mark a step forward. Not really. The opener "Black Magic" already shows how deep...

CD review LUGNET "Lugnet"

(8/10) 'Lugnet' is a Swedish word and it means 'serenity'. And I must say that the debut album of Lugnet, the Swedish band, has this ease in each of the eight tracks. Lugnet is Roger Solander (v) Marcus Holten (g), Danne Jansson (g), Lennart Zethzon (b)...

CD review NEW LIGHT CHOIR "Volume II"

(8/10) New Light Choir is a duo. It's John Niffenegger (v, g, b, m-tron) and Chris Dalton (d) that founded the band in 2010 and New Light Choir is so far a pure studio project without having live activities planned yet. The title of the album leads to...

CD review OZZY OSBOURNE "Memories of a madman"

(*/10) The prince of darkness, Ozzy Osbourne, can look back on a long career, full of remarkable milestones. Most of them very positive, some of them more doubtable. But the guy from Birmingham managed always to keep on standing in the spotlight and when...

CD review THE SABBATHIAN "Ritual rites" EP

The Sabbathian is a trio that is playing doom metal based on the mighty Black Sabbath. Looking on the name this isn't a big surprise. What the band does is also adding an occult force to their sound and combine it with some Candlemass riffs. The Sabbathian...

CD review ASTRAL DOORS "Notes from the shadows"

(8/10) Nothing new with the Classic Rock fans from Astral Door. I can't say if this is good or bad, but I liked them from the beginning and the new record "Notes from the shadows" is a good one too. The new album follows the 2011 release "Jerusalem" and...
