CD review RAUBTIER "Bärsärkargång"

(5/10) Even though Raubtier makes you think about being a band from Germany the trio is based in Sweden. The three-piece have released four records that have been quite successful in their home country. Top 10 positions and gold records have been the...

CD review DENNER/SHERMANN "Satan's Tomb"

(8/10) It doubtless creates quite some attention when Mercyful Fate guitar legends Michael Denner and Hank Shermann team-up again to work on new songs. If than also Snowy Shaw (King Diamond/Therion/Sabaton) joins, things get even more interesting. Those...

CD review CIVIL WAR "Gods and generals"

(7/10) When four musicians leave a band it's often the end of the same. Not in the case of Sabaton. Four band members left in 2012 and started a new group called Civil War, while Sabaton was continuing the success-story. In the meantime Oskar Montelius...

CD review RAUBTIER "Bestia borealis"

(4/10) Raubtier is not from Germany. Eventhough the name might give you this impression we are talking about a band from Sweden. They started in 2007 and scored some success in their home country. Now the band want to conquer also Europe with their sound....

CD review ALESTORM "Sunset on the golden age"

(7/10) What happens if you merge Santiano with Sabaton and spice it up with a bit of the Dropkick Murphies and Running Wild? Exactly. You get Alestorm. The band, that started as Battleheart, re-named in 2007, which means that they reflaged and continued...

CD review SABATON "Heroes"

(7/10) Next round for the power metal band from Falun, Sweden. Or should I say: the next battle to fight for the guys in the camouflage pants? Sabaton had an enormous increase in popularity over the last years. In my point of view this has mainly to do...
