CD review HEXX "Wrath of the Reaper"

(9/10) One of my most favorite underground metal bands is Hexx from California. “No Escape” and especially “Under the Spell” are terrific longplayers, featuring an exciting mix of power metal with some thrash references too. To my disappointment the band...

CD review THE ROAD VIKINGS "Requiem For an Outlaw Biker"

(7/10) This album is confusing, at least it confused me when I heard it the first time. The name of the band, the name of the album, the cover ... all this made me think about a Southern rock influenced classic rock album - the soundtrack for a bike ride...

CD review POWERLORD "The awakening" re-release

(9/10) How on earth could I miss this album in 1986? “The awakening” is the one and only full-length album from US thrash-/power metal band Powerlord. And it’s an awesome piece of music. This record is a hidden pearl which is worth to (re-)discover. The...
