CD review POLTERGEIST ‘Feather of Truth’

Although Swiss metal veterans Poltergeist premiered in 1989 with ‘Depression’, the count of longplayers isn’t further than on four to date. This has less to do with a lack of musical quality or zeal. It’s mainly due to the fact that Poltergeist was ‘offline’ for 20 years. After having published ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’, nomen et... Continue Reading →

CD review POWERWOLF ‘Best of the Blessed’

One of the bands that was growing the fastest over the last years is certainly Powerwolf from Saarbrücken, Germany.

Madhouse from Hamburg are a metal band which was already active in the late '80s.

The first time my attention was directed towards Anchillotti was when the band performed at the Heavy Metal Maniacs festival 2015 in The Netherlands.
