CD THE DOOMSDAY KINGDOM "Never Machine"

(8/10) Leif Edling is a phenomenon. Not only that the bass player of Candlemass belongs to the group of highly influential musicians in metal, he’s also a good example when it’s about not giving up and do what you burn for. In his case things went even...

CD review BURNING POINT "The Blaze"

(7/10) Why am I so much reminded of Zed Yago when I listen to Burning Point's newest album? In one or another way it's singer Nitte Vallo (ex-Battle Beast) that actually sounds quite similar to Jutta Weinhold from the German metalists from the late 80's....

CD review HAMMERFALL "Built to Last"

(7/10) In days of constant change some continuity is a welcomed situation. Hammerfall provides such a stability with their releases and also the newest one, "Built to Last", doesn't change this situation. In days of many different styles of metal it feels...

DVD review SAXON "Let Me Feel Your Power"

CD review HIGH SPIRITS "Motivator"

CD review ANCILLOTTI "Strike Back"

(7/10) Ancillotti is an Italian powerhouse that has nothing to do with bombast metal from Rhapsody or modern metal a la Lacuna Coil. This four-piece from Prato is into pure heavy metal that has a quite traditional touch. The first time I have seen the...

Veröffentlicht am 17. September 2016 von Markus W. in Saint Vitus, Black Sabbath, News, CD Review, Doom Metal, Heavy Metal, Power Metal, NWoBHM

CD review SAINT VITUS "Live Vo.2"

(8/10) It's Black Sabbath that normally gets a lot of credits when it comes to doom metal and yes, the guys initiated a genre that inspired many bands up till now. Iommi's guitar riffs are unique and metal would sound different today without Black Sabbath....

CD review ARMORY "World Peace ... Cosmic War"

(8/10) I almost had the idea that John Cyriis is back in metal again while I was listening to Armory. Some screams and high pitch vocals of P. Andersson reminded of Cyriis. Anyhow, Armoryare more than just a speed metal, even though they play quite fast....
