CD review METALLICA "Hardwired... To Self-Destruct"

(8/10) With a new Metallica album it’s like with a new iPhone. Both are connected to a strong brand (yes, I would say Metallica is a brand and a band in the meantime) that has an exciting history by creating something that was new and revolutionary in...

(7/10) Memorain from Greece started in 1999 and one thing that stands out over the years are the various changes in the band's line-up. It was in 2014 when an almost full renewal of the band took place. Aris Nikoleris (g), Sevan Barsam (d) and Vagelis...

CD review ABATTOIR "Vicious attack" re-release

(7/10) I guess that it's a few small things that sometimes decide of being successful or not. Listening to the latest re-release of Abattoir's "Vicious attack" triggered this thought again. The band, that was founded in 1982, had the same starting conditions...

Veröffentlicht am 13. April 2015 von Markus W. in Trauma, Metallica, Omen, Power Metal, US Metal, News, Heavy Metal, CD Review

CD review TRAUMA "Rapture and wrath"

(8/10) Trauma can be seen as the band where a bass player called Cliff Burton started. Yes, indeed - Cliff Burton from Metallica, a guy that died far too early in a tragical way. Eventhough he was just for two years in the band and left already before...

CD review FATEFUL FINALITY "Battery"

(7/10) Weil der Stadt is actually a quite nice small city in the South West of Germany. But it's also the homebase of Fateful Finality - a band that shudders the city with their metal storm. The four-piece band started in 2007 and they went through a...
