Review WHITECHAPEL ‘Kin’

I am not a fan of the first hour as far as Whitechapel is concerned. It was a show at TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht that brought the American sextet to my attention. Whitechapel was one of the support act for Heaven Shall Burn and what the guys delivered that night was impressive. Having had the band... Continue Reading →

Review JOE BONAMASSA ‘Time Clocks’

Introducing Joe Bonamassa is like bringing sand to the beach. The blues and rock guitarist is a real master of his craft, documented by many records and live shows. Creativity and filigree are what characterizes the sound of Bonamassa’s singing guitar that he handles with savvy and feel. With ‘Time Clocks’ the next album is... Continue Reading →

Review LUCIFER ‘Lucifer IV’

What is much more important is that the death metal veterans return with a new album. Also due to the mentioned line-up changes, Massacre wasn’t spoiling fans... Continue Reading →

Review RUNNING WILD ‘Blood on Blood’

Running Wild, that is Rock’n’Rolfs vision on heavy metal since 1979. Except for a hiatus from 2009 to 2011 the foundation of Running Wild’s sound never faced the risk of being shattered. The band stayed always true to their sound and direction. After having identified the pirate style image as a good trademark for the... Continue Reading →

Review KNIFE ‘Knife’

Knife from Marburg is certainly one of the most exciting young bands hailing from Germany. The guys just started their merciless road trip through the metallic universe and in a way, I feel reminded of bands like Space Chaser. It seems there is a next generation of German metal bands knocking loudly at the doors... Continue Reading →
