(8/10) Australia is known for blues-based hardrock. Bands like AC/DC and Airbourne are from Down Under and also some thrash bands are based in the land of the kangaroos. But prog metal? I guess that the new record of Teramaze will change this. The band...

CD review VANDEN PLAS "Chronicles of the Immortals: Netherworld II"

(8/10) Finally - Vanden Plas releases the second part of their Netherworld saga. The complex story was too much for just one album and that's why Andy Kuntz and bandmates decided to create a double header. Like in the first part the story about life,...

CD review MIDGE URE "Breathe Again: Live and Extended"

(8/10) To mention each of the important musical mielstones of Midge Ure would be a very long list of bands and projects the iconic musicians was involved in. I don't think that such an outstanding career was to foresee when Ure started in 1976 with Silk,...

CD review TESSERACT "Polaris"

(8/10) Tesseract is a four-dimensional analog of a cube. Sounds comlicated. I guess it is, but I also think that it describes the music of UK-based TesseracT pretty good. The British prog rockers started not too far back in time. It was in 2007 when the...
