CD review LUGNET "Lugnet"

(8/10) 'Lugnet' is a Swedish word and it means 'serenity'. And I must say that the debut album of Lugnet, the Swedish band, has this ease in each of the eight tracks. Lugnet is Roger Solander (v) Marcus Holten (g), Danne Jansson (g), Lennart Zethzon (b)...

CD review HORISONT "Odyssey"

(8/10) The horizon is something wide and endless. This is also valid for Horisont; the band. The album is called "Odyssey" and also this fits - more in the way of an endless journey than having no direction. The style of Horisont is classic rock that...

CD review LYNX "Caught in the trap" re-release

(8/10) If you google 'Lynx band' you will find many many results. But it's just a small amount links that brings you to Lynx from Sweden. This has to do with the fact that the band existed in the 80's (pre-internet times) and released only one album....

CD review MAUSOLEUM GATE "Mausoleum gate"

(8/10) And again Finland. This time with real heavy metal from Mausoleum Gate. The first thing that hits your eyes is the cover. I think if there is a competition for the worst cover this year Mausoleum Gate will end up in the top 5 - at least. Fortunatley...
