CD review FIRESPAWN ‘Abominate’

(9/10) Swedish Death Metal powerhouse Firespawn premiered in 2015 with ‘Lucifer Has Spoken’. You can speak of an all-star band looking on the rich musical background of the five involved musicians. Although I don’t like the term a lot it fits in this context and there’s no doubt that LG Petrov, A. Impaler, Victor Brandt,... Continue Reading →

CD review SAVAGE MESSIAH ‘Demons’

(7/10) London-based metallers Savage Messiah were busy over the last two years. Not only that the guys played a bigger number of shows, they also worked on a new delivery that’s ready to go.

CD review MARTYRDÖD ‘Hexhammaren’

(7/10) Martyrdöd's smashing seventh album is mainly built on two pillars. One of them are the hysteric sound vocals by Mikael Kjellman and the other one are the rather melodic guitar lines. Now, using the work 'melodic' might lead to a wrong impression since Martyrdöd has nothing to do with melodic metal or similar. The... Continue Reading →

CD review BUCKCHERRY ‘Warpaint’

(8/10) Buckcherry premiered in 1999 with the self-titled first album and is since then a regular deliverer of great hard rocking music. Their latest studio album was even entitled ‘Rock’n’Roll’ and it’s four years later the guys attack with ‘Warpaint’. The new album was produced by Mike Plotnikoff (Halestorm, All That Remains), something that ensures... Continue Reading →

CD review QUEENSRYCHE ‘The Verdict’

(8/10) The announcement of a new Queensryche album leads to anticipation, esp. since the band step by step returns to being a powerful metal band that leaves all the legal fights behind. ‘Queensryche’ and ‘Condition Human’ where the first records with Todd La Torre. His voice added and still add so much to Queensryche’s sound... Continue Reading →

CD review HEXVESSEL ‘All Tree’

(8/10) Hexvessel is the brainchild of Mat 'Kvohst' McNerney. The musician, that was born and raised in the UK, played in various metal bands before he moved to Finland, his new home. Inspired by the Finnish heritage and pagan past, McNerney founded Hexvessel, a folk rock outfit that premiered in 2011 with 'Dawnbearer'. Eight years... Continue Reading →

CD review DESERTED FEAR ‘Drowned By Humanity’

(9/10) German metalers Deserted Fear come up with their fourth longplayer and it’s certainly the best to date. Originally hailing from Eisenberg (Translated into English it means Iron Mountain), Manuel Glatter (g/v) and Fabian Hildebrandt (g) moved to Jena during the last years, which added a new dynamic to Desert Fear’s music. ‘Drowned by Humanity’...
