CD review YOUDASH "Astrophobia"

(6/10) I guess that YouDash from Poland are fans from Swedish extreme metal outfit Meshuggah, at least you could get this impression while listening to the band's debut "Astrophobia". The four-piece from Poland came into the picture in 2012 when the the...

CD review ULTHA "Coverging Sin"

(9/10) This album is epic and brutal. What became apparent on the debut is now gets proved again by Ultha's sophomore release "Converging Sins". What the guys from Cologne recorded for this longplayer is actually the opposite of a light-hearted Cologne...

CD review ALBEZ DUZ "Wings of Tzinacan"

(7/10) Albez Duz, hailing from Berlin, are described as being an 'occult rock band'. I honestly don't know where this description comes from but it was really misleading for me. I have to admit that I missed the band so far and after reading the info...

CD review WITCHERY "In His Infernal Majesty's Service"

CD review WITCHERY "In His Infernal Majesty's Service"

(8/10) I think there isn't a much better title than "In His Infernal Majesty's Service" for Witchery's newest longplayer. Six years after their latest studio album it's the Swedish five-piece that comes back with a brand new studio album which is the...

CD review PRIMORDIAL "Gods to the Godless - Live at BYH 2015"

(8/10) It was in 2015 when Irish pagan metal band Primordial played a show at the well-established Band Your Head festival in Balingen, Germany. If I counted right it was the band's second appearance after having played there already three years earlier....

CD review SOULBURN "Earthless Pagan Spirit"

(8/10) Soulburn’s and Asphyx' history are closely connected. Not only that the band was founded by Eric Daniels (g) and Bob Bagchus (d) in parallel with their main band, Soulburn was also put on ice after Asphyx arose again in the beginning of the new...

CD review BÖLZER "Hero"

(8/10) One of the debuts in 2016 that was very much anticipated was Bölzer’s first studio longplayer. So far the duo published two EP’s (“Aura” and “Soma”) which both included jaw-dropping riff power. HzR and KzR recorded in total nine songs for "Hero"...

Live review OPETH / SAHG, 013, Tilburg, 18.11.2016

It seems like I’m only visiting shows of Swedish bands over the last weeks. Dark Funeral, Grand Magus, Amon Amarth, Europe and now the mighty Opeth. However, in the end it shows the variety and quality of Swedish rock/metal music and that's what counts....
