CD review LAST IN LINE "Heavy Crown"

(7/10) Oh man, there are some albums which are very tricky to write about. One of those records is "Heavy Crown" from Last In Line. There are two major things that make it that hard for me to write about it. The first thing is the fact that "Heavy Crown"...

CD review RESURRECTION KINGS "Resurrection Kings"

(7/10) What do you expect when Craig Goldy, Chas West, Sean McNabb and Vinny Appice team up to start a new project? At least my first thought was a Dio and Dokken hybrid. In case you had the same idea, not too far away from reality I must say. The four...

CD review LUGNET "Lugnet"

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 MANDOWAR "Hellboys from cow"

(3/10) Tom, Nailz and Joe, better known as Mandowar, have a new album in the starting box. "Hellboys from cow" is the title and it is number three already. So far so good. If you have missed Mandowar so far, don't worry; you haven't missed a lot. What...

CD review THOMSEN "Unbroken"

CD review THOMSEN "Unbroken"

(7/10) Name-dropping always creates curiosity. Either a band is not good enough to convince with their music. Or they are that good that a lot of well known names want to join in for a guest appearance. The first thing I heard about the new Thomsen was...

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...

(8/10) It was a sad moment four years ago when the news spread around the world that one of the most talented singers in Heavy Metal died - Ronnie James Dio. Now, almost four years after the exact date of death, a new release with the small Italian rooted...

CD review Various Artists "RONNIE JAMES DIO - This is your life"

(*/10) Time is flying. It was already four years ago when one of the biggest voices in heavy metal lost the fight against f**king cancer. A sad day for all real metal fans and friends. Dio was not only a singer with an awesome and unique voice, he was...

DVD review HEAVEN & HELL "Radio City Music Hall - live" re-release

(10/10) Almost four years after Dio's passing Eagle Vision re-released the great Heaven & Hell DVD "Radio City Music Hall - live". It's so good and refreshing to see Dio (R.I.P.) again, eventhough it's just on tape. And it makes aware again about the...
