Veröffentlicht am 21. April 2018 von Markus W. in Wrong, Feel Great, News, Alternative Metal, Groove Metal, CD, Relapse Records, Hardcore, Metal, Post-Rock, Post-Metal, Post-Punk

CD review WRONG "Feel Great"

(8/10) Who doesn't want to feel great? I think that especially in times of uncertainty and political absurdity the need for feeling great, at least for some moments, is a something most of us have more the ever. What can help to feel good is listening...

CD review TANKARD "One Foot in the Grave"

Veröffentlicht am 2. Juni 2017 von Markus W. in Tankard, Thrash Metal, Heavy Metal, News, Nuclear Blast, CD, Speed Metal

CD review TANKARD "One Foot in the Grave"

(8/10) It was 30 years ago when Tankard entered my Planet Metal with an album called "Chemical Invasion". Being recommended by a friend and being fascinated by the artwork the vinyl found its way into my collection. What I liked at that time was the harsh...

CD review BITCH QUEENS "L.O.V.E."

(8/10) Basel-based Bitch Queens has a new album in the starting blocks, ready to score. The guys worked further on evolving their powerful hardrock that comes with a strong punk influence too, an ambition they successfully managed. The album starts with...

CD review STAHLMANN "Bastard"

Veröffentlicht am 19. April 2017 von Markus W. in Stahlmann, Rammstein, Modern Metal, Neue Deutsche Härte, Rock, Elektro, AFM Records, News, CD

CD review STAHLMANN "Bastard"

(5/10) I wonder who's in need of this release in days when, on a weekly base, excellent metal records see the light of day. Yes, I know, Rammstein hasn't released something new since quite some years that is more than another live recording and maybe...

CD review VENENUM "Trance of Death"

Veröffentlicht am 16. März 2017 von Markus W. in Venenum, Death Metal, Melodic Death Metal, CD, News, Sepulchral Records, Thrash Metal, Heavy Metal

CD review VENENUM "Trance of Death"

(9/10) Venenum isn't really new in the world of metal since their first EP was already released in the beginning of this decade. At this early stage the songs on this first disc showed some potential and it's amazing what the four guys achieved between...

(8/10) "Here Now, There Then" is the highly anticipated first album of Dutch psychedelic rock outfit Dool. The quintet released a first single in 2016 and played a notable show on last years Roadburn festival in Tilburg. Who is Dool? The five-piece band...

CD review BLACKFIELD "V"

(9/10) “V” marks, how could it be different, the fifth album of the genius cooperation of Aviv Geffen and Steven Wilson. These guys started their collaboration after Geffen, a big fan of Porcupine Tree, invited the band to Israel for a concert. What start...

CD review ABSTUERZENDE BRIEFTAUBEN "Doofgesagte leben laenger"

Veröffentlicht am 5. November 2016 von Markus W. in Abstuerzende Brieftauben, Punkrock, Punk, Fun Punk, Rock, News, CD

CD review ABSTUERZENDE BRIEFTAUBEN "Doofgesagte leben laenger"

(8/10) I guess that this review isn’t of great interest for some of my readers since it’s about a punk band from Germany that sings in their 1st language – German. However, this new album “Doofgesagte leben laenger” came out of leftfield and I was more...

CD review MICHAEL SWEET "One Sided War"

Veröffentlicht am 22. August 2016 von Markus W. in Michael Sweet, Stryper, Hardrock, Melodic Metal, Melodic Rock, News, CD, Joel Hoekstra

CD review MICHAEL SWEET "One Sided War"

(8/10) OK, Michael Sweet is the frontman of Stryper and I think that almost each metal fan has his/her own opinion about the yellow/black fanatics with the special image. I must admit that I wasn't the biggest fan of the band even though I still appreciate...

CD review SAINT ASONIA "Saint Asonia"

Veröffentlicht am 19. Oktober 2015 von Markus W. in Saint Asonia, Stained, Three Days Grace, Alternative Metal, Alternative Rock, Post Grunge, Grunge, CD, News

CD review SAINT ASONIA "Saint Asonia"

(8/10) I have the feeling that 'supergroups' spring up like mushrooms at the moment. Maybe this has to do with the start of the autumn season or whatever. Saint Asonia is the name of one of those 'supergroups'; this time in the field of alternative metal....

CD review MICHAEL MONROE "Blackout state"

Veröffentlicht am 2. Oktober 2015 von Markus W. in Michael Monroe, Hardrock, Sleaze Rock, Rock, News, CD, Hanoi Rocks

CD review MICHAEL MONROE "Blackout state"

(8/10) This album is just good. Compared to the new Backyard Babies album "Blackout state" kicks ass. Michael Monroe, singer of the legendary Hanoi Rocks, puts again so much passion into each of the 13 songs that even your greyest days become sunny again....

CD review CHRIS CORNELL "Euphoria mourning"

(8/10) "Euphoria morning" was the first solo album by Chris Cornell. The iconic singer and frontman focussed on his solo career and other projects, like Audioslave, after the grunge legend Soundgarden disbanded. Now, 16 years later, the solo debut will...

CD review BLUES PILLS "Blues Pills"

Veröffentlicht am 1. August 2014 von Markus W. in Blues Pills, Classic Rock, Blues, Rock, Hardrock, Rival Sons, CD, News

CD review BLUES PILLS "Blues Pills"

(9/10) Blues Pills is one of the most talented bands in the over-crowded retro trend. For me they belong to the top three ones. Unfortunately their debut album comes pretty late into the stores, but I hope, that this doesn't limit the attention for the...
