CD review RAVENOUS "We Are Become Death" (re-release)

(7/10) Eventhough thrash metal is very much linked to the Bay Area and the Ruhrgebiet in Germany, there have been always thrash bands from the UK that made it into the spotlight. Onslaught is just one of them, but also bands like Sabbat and Slammer had...

CD review SKINDRED "Volume"

(8/10) If you want to mix an excellent drink you need the right in incrediences and the right way how to put them together. The new Skindred album reminded me very much to this metaphor. Skindred's crossover isn't new, at least the idea isn't something...

CD review WHILE SHE SLEEPS "Brainwashed"
