CD review ...TRAIL OF DEAD ""IX"

(7/10) And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead can look back on a longer history. It was in 1994 when the band was founded by Conrad Keely and Jason Reece, both friends from childhood. ...Trail Of Dead published their selftitled debut album in 1998...

CD review OBSIDIAN KINGDOM "Mantiis"

(9/10) This record is one of the most jaw-dropping releases in the last months. I haven't heard from the band before and therefore I was pretty open in what to expect. Maybe to start with some facts first. The band comes from Spain and "Mantiis" is their...

CD review ENCHANT "The great divide"

(8/10) Enchant is back - after a decay without release. The prog metal band from the US managed to release a new album called "The last divide". It took the band ten years to release this album and it follows the 2003 album "Tug of war". There are several...

DVD review DREAM THEATER "Breaking the four walls

(8/10) I have the feeling that the prog masterminds from Long Island are also the record holder for having the most live releases in their career. "Breaking the four walls" is the newest one from Dream Theater. I have stopped counting, but I was surprised...

CD review EDEN CIRCUS "Marula"

(8/10) Eventhough Eden Circus comes from Hamburg (actually they are from Göttingen and re-located to Hamburg in 2010) I haven't heard about them earlier. Can happen. But the other day I got the album from the five piece into my box and was curious about...

News from the coming PINK FLOYD album

As you may heard, Pink Floyd will release a new album beginning of November this year. It seems to become the autumn of the dinosaurs, since AC/DC has a new album in the pipeline too. The Pink Flyod album got the title "The endless river" and it was done...

CD review THRESHOLD "For the journey"

CD review THRESHOLD "For the journey"

(9/10) For me Threshold are one of those bands that are respected by almost everybody. I don't think that there are a lot of bad words about the band. This has to do with two facts. One is, that their music is on a quite high level - when it comes to...

CD review THE PINEAPPLE THIEF "Magnolia"

(8/10) Time for prog rock again on MHMB. The Pineapple Thief has added a new album to their discography. It's entitled "Magnolia" and it is the tenth stroke of genius from British band. Bruce Soord, the mainman behind the band with the unusual name, was...

CD review IAMTHEMORNING "Belighted"

(7/10) What are your first thoughts when you hear a band name like IAmTheMorning? Do you think about heavy riff, crunchy guitars and growls? No. You think about the beginning of a day, sunlight, birds ... OK, before my romantic part becomes too dominant...

CD review REDEMPTION "Live from the pit"

Veröffentlicht am 12. September 2014 von Markus W. in Redemption, Dream Theater, Prog Rock, Prog Metal, Heavy Metal, CD Review, News

CD review REDEMPTION "Live from the pit"

(8/10) Redemption could be seen as a prog metal supergroup. Now, maybe 'supergroup' is a too big word, but however, the band isn't just a bunch of newcomers too. The main pillar of Redemption is founder, guitarist, keyboarder and songwriter Nicolas van...

CD review MALPRACTICE "Turning tides"

(8/10) Progressive metal from Finland - this is what you get from Malpractice. Eventhough the band isn't that very well known they are in business already since many years. The Kouvola, Finland based five-piece band started already in 1994 and released...

MAYBESHEWILL is planning an extensive tour in autumn

...and here are the dates. (8/10) Imagine the picture of an autumn day. It's in the morning. You're standing on a meadow. The first sunrays are coming up through the branches of trees. You can see and feel the last signs of ...
