CD review ORDEN OGAN ‘Final Days’

Metal storytellers Orden Ogan return with a new album and thus with a new story. Seeb Levermann and bandmates had already sung about 'Gunmen' and had also musically staged various other concepts.

CD review BONFIRE ‘Roots’

Bavaria's metal and rock veterans Bonfire have regained strength over the past few years. 'Temple of Lies' and 'Fistul of Fire' are evidence of a band that has picked up momentum. Singer Alexx Stahl certainly added his share to this positive development, as Bonfire mainman Hans Ziller has now again a good frontman next to... Continue Reading →

CD review LAKE OF TEARS ‘Ominous’

Compared to the colorful cosmic trip of 'A Crimson Cosmos', the newest Lake Of Tears album appears dark and gloomy. It seems like a gigantic black hole absorbed all the colors and what remains is a cold and dark universe. It has been rather quiet about Lake Of Tears for the last ten years. 'Illwill'...

CD review VOODOO CIRCLE ‘Locked & Loaded’

The most compelling line-up of Voodoo Circle was certainly the one from 2011 that recorded 'Broken Heart Syndrome'.

Since having released with 'Dead Sun' their latest album in 2016 a few things changed when... Continue Reading →

CD review REDEMPTION ‘Alive in Colour’

Redemption is the brainchild of guitarist Nick van Dyk who founded the band in 2000. The self-titled debut was unleashed in 2003, but it was the second longplayer, which led to some extra attention. Very well-crafted progressive Metal is the trademark of Redemption and no less than Fates Warning's Ray Alder was the 'voice' of... Continue Reading →
