CD review PARADISE LOST ‘Obsidian’

‚Obsidian‘ is the impressive new album. Paradise Lost took all the strong moments of the different eras of the band and merged them in a great fashion. ‚Obsidian‘ is a very dense, dark, melancholic and heavy album. At the same time it carries a stronger gothic spirit and comprises of hooks that are irresistible. 2020 is already rich when it comes to great records and Paradise Lost adds another candidate for becoming 'album of the year‘ to the mix. It‘s your own fault if you miss this record.

CD review DESTRUCTION ‘Born To Thrash – Live In Germany’

'Born To Thrash – Live In Germany' is a live album that brings back memories. It's more this emotional aspect, making this live record special since we all know the songs. But listening to them in a live setup is great and by the way, the song-selection is well done when it comes to reflecting all Destruction eras. Build up your tent in your living room, open a beer, heat-up Ravioli in a can and press the start button. You will not get more festival atmosphere this year.

CD review WITCHCRAFT ‘Black Metal’

I think that most people don't think of an acoustic album when reading 'Black Metal'. Black metal, that stands for Venom and their cult album and/or for a genre with all its gloom and musical purgatory. At least as far as darkness is concerned, the new Witchcraft album makes a good contribution to the grayer... Continue Reading →

CD review VADER ‘Solitude in Madness’

'Solitude in Madness' showcases a band that's as wild and fierce as they have been over the last 37 years. Vader didn't lose any of their intensity and power. No foot on the brake and no intention for compromising on aggressiveness, that's Vader. Together with an extremely well done production the longplayer is a real challenge for amplifiers and speakers. Now it's up to each of you if you accept the challenge.

CD review ORANSSI PAZUZU ‘Mestarin kynsi’

This album is a challenge for fans of traditional Heavy Metal. It stresses the framework. For some, Oranssi Pazuzu created a masterpiece and for others it's a total 'no way'-album. I like the approach of the band to break the chains of standard musical formulas but I also have to admit that I needed to take in the album step by step.
