CD review KATAKLYSM ‘Unconquered’

Canada-based Metal force Katakylsm release their new longplayer 'Unconquered' as we speak (read). It's their 14th longplayer in the bands long history, a story that started nearly 30 years ago in Montreal, Quebec.

CD review ENSLAVED ‘Utgard’

The Northmen return with a new album called 'Utgard', three years after 'E' was shipped from Norway to the rest of the world. 'Utgard', the outerworld, has its roots in Nordic mythology.

CD review LIK ‘Misanthropic Breed’

Stockholm-based Lik (the Swedish word for "corpse), release with 'Misanthropic Breed' their third album, a longplayer with a title that's very relevant these days in various ways.

CD review GAZPACHO ‘Fireworker’

Norwegian Art-Rock veterans Gazpacho are for sure belonging to spearhead of progressive music, hailing from the Scandinavian country. Delivering numerous longplayers in 17 years means a lot of experience the guys utilize for working on new material. This approach and effort capitalizes in a new offer from Gazpacho, called 'Fireworker'. Although being the opener, 'Space... Continue Reading →

CD review AYREON ‘Transitus’

A release that has carved the moniker Ayreon on the cover artwork is always more than merely a longplayer.

CD review SATAN ‘Early Rituals’

UK Metal veterans Satan recently announced a new release called 'Early Rituals'. Instead of publishing new songs the guys went back in time.

CD review PANZERBALLETT ‘Planet Z’

One of the craziest crossover mixture comes from Munich. Jan Zehrfeld started a project called Panzerballett in the early years of the 21st century. If you read ‘Panzer’ and you think about bands like Sabaton, don’t read further since Panzerballett acts in a total different genre. Zehrfeld and bandmates brings together what doesn’t belong together,... Continue Reading →

CD review HEXX ‘Entangled in Sin’

Hexx's reference album is the 1986 release 'Under the Spell' and the new longplayer from the California-based powerhouse will not cause a change. 'Entangled in Sin', so the title of the record, is the new release forged by Hexx and although it can't reach the milestone it's still an excellent Metal record. Hexx disappeared from... Continue Reading →

CD review HEATHEN ‘Empire of the Blind’

Good things will find you, regardless of time. In a way that’s valid for Heathen’s new longplayer ‘Empire of the Blind’ too. The band premiered in 1987 with the stellar ‘Breaking the Silence’ debut in 1987 and after the sophomore smasher ‘Victims of Deception’s has intensified the great impression, radio silence took over. Silence was... Continue Reading →
