CD review NONPOINT "The Poison Red"

Veröffentlicht am 7. Juli 2016 von Markus W. in Nonpoint, Modern Metal, Alternative Metal, Alternative Rock, News, CD Review, Rock

CD review NONPOINT "The Poison Red"

(8/10) Nonpoint's album starts with a strong punch. Not only that the opener is a very rhythm based number, it's also a well composed alternative metal track. Catchiness meets heaviness meets intelligent lyrics, that's how I could summarize this beginning....

CD review DEADLOCK "Hybris"

CD review DEADLOCK "Hybris"

(8/10) German melodic deathers Deadlock left a dark period behind. A real stoke of fate hit the guys back in 2014 when founding member and drummer Tobias Graf lost his fight against cancer. And if this wouldn't have been enough it was singer Sabine Scherer...

CD review AND THEN SHE CAME "And Then She Came"

(6/10) Modern Metal might reached its peak already a couple of years ago. However, there is still a bigger amount of new records that see the light of day every month. June this year is the period of an And Then She Came release. The first thing that...

CD review BEYOND ALL RECOGNITION "Beyond All Recognition"

Veröffentlicht am 31. Mai 2016 von Markus W. in Beyond All Recogniation, Modern Metal, Nu Metal, Alternative Metal, Thrash Metal, CD Review, News, Slipknot

CD review BEYOND ALL RECOGNITION "Beyond All Recognition"

(7/10) This album is a musical freakshow that reminds very much of Slipknot. I think that Beyond All Recognition is targeting the same group of fans and the guys probably have heard some stuff from the Iowa-based band. This idea gets into the listeners...

CD review LACUNA COIL "Delirium"

Veröffentlicht am 27. Mai 2016 von Markus W. in Lacuna Coil, News, Modern Metal, Alternative Metal, CD Review

CD review LACUNA COIL "Delirium"

(7/10) Right before the starting summer period Lacuna Coil reminds us, that Italy has also a darker side than only beach, sun and sea. The Italian powerhouse releases these days their new longplayer "Delirium", an album that was inspired by a visit of...

CD review DEVILDRIVER "Trust No One"

CD review DEVILDRIVER "Trust No One"

(7/10) "Trust No One" is another wild ride on a modern thrash rollercoaster. You step into the cart, knowing that you're facing a wild experience to come. The first leg on "Trust No One" is called "Testimony of Truth" and it's like the cart being pulled...

New LACUNA COIL song

Italian modern metal outfit Lacuna Coil will release their new album "Delirium" on May 27th. Here comes the title track, a song that is 100% Lacuna Coil. I guess we can expect a quite strong album. LACUNA COIL - Delirium (Album Track). Pre-Order now:...

CD review SIXX:A.M. "Prayers for the Damned (Vol.1)"

Veröffentlicht am 27. April 2016 von Markus W. in Sixx:A.M., Hardrock, Modern Metal, Modern Rock, Rock, News, CD Review, Mötley Crüe, Guns'n'Roses

CD review SIXX:A.M. "Prayers for the Damned (Vol.1)"

(8/10) I grew up with bands like Mötley Crüe and "Shout at the Devil" is still one of the best Glam metal songs that has ever been written. And I must admit that there was a kind of felt sadness when the band announced their final world tour. They might...

CD review ROB ZOMBIE "The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser"

Veröffentlicht am 25. April 2016 von Markus W. in Rob Zombie, Industrial, Heavy Metal, Modern Metal, News, CD Review, Alternative Metal, Horror, Groove Metal

CD review ROB ZOMBIE "The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser"

(8/10) One thing's almost crystal clear; Rob Zombie is probably winning the award for 'longest album title' and 'longest song title'. Just writing the tracklist is an effort that takes quite a while. But is it also worth it? Is the sixth solo album of...

CD review TREMONTI "Dust"

(8/10) Mark Tremonti releases his highly anticipated new solo album "Dust" in the coming days, which is, I guess, a great moment for all fans of the iconic guitarist. "Dust" was recorded already during the "Cauterize" session. Tremonti had material for...

CD review STAM1NA "Elokuutio"

(6/10) I would have loved a situation where I could have told you that STAM1NA made a huge step forward and that they might become the next big thing. Starting in such a way shows you, that there aren't big steps forward. "Elokuutio" is the next release...

CD review FILTER "Crazy Eyes"

CD review FILTER "Crazy Eyes"

(8/10) Even tough I'm more into metal, I always had a certain interest in industrial rock too. Regardless if it's Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson or Ministry, I have to say that the power those bands create(d) by using samples and keyboards is massive. Filter...
