CD review ZOAX "Zoax"

(7/10) ZOAX found a way of making music exciting. There sound is actually quite melodic rock/metal that acts like a foundation for each of the 12 songs on "ZOAX". In order to not make things too catchy and too much mainstream-like the guys add some aggressive...

CD review KATATONIA "The Fall of Hearts"

(10/10) "The Fall of Hearts" is one of these albums in 2016 that I was curiously waiting for. Not only that the band is releasing one good record after the other, they are also constantly improving their sound. What is really smart is the fact that development...

CD review VEKTOR "Terminal Redux"

(9/10) Imagine a valley, covered in grey fog and mist. Some of the mountain tops stick out their head, unveiling their beauty by being lighted by first sunrays. OK, this is maybe a weird beginning of a review, but anyhow, in one or another way it reflects...
