CD review PINK FLOYD "The endless river"

(8/10) A new album from Pink Floyd wasn't something I expected. It was actually the moment when Richard Wright passed away 6 years ago that seemed to mark also the end of the rock dinosaur. Therefore it was a big and positive surprise when the news about...

CD review KAIPA "Sattyg"

(7/10) Kaipa stands for rock from Sweden with folk- and prog influences. To be honest - I missed the band so far. It's maybe the same with you. So, let's have a look back in time. The band started already in the end of the 70's. It was in 1975 when they...

CD review NIGHTINGALE "Retribution"

(8/10) There is no Yin without a Yang. This goes also for Dan Swano too. The musician from Finspang, Sweden lives out both parts in his music. If the Yin is the death metal he played/produced with bands like Bloodbath and Edge Of Sanity, it is the Yang...

CD review DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT "Z2"

(9/10) Devin Townsend is almost possessed by music. The passion and dedication with which the guy from Canada produces and releases records is I guess unique. Basically "Z2" comes with two discs. The first one got the title "Sky bue" and the second one...
