CD review LEATHÜRBITCH ‘Into the Night’

(8/10) Leathürbitch, already this moniker creates a certain level of attention, with the 'ü' being definitely more of an unusual letter in English language. Next is the artwork that reflects a certain '80s vibe but besides all this it's the music that needs to do the job. While I was spinning this longplayer for the... Continue Reading →

CD review RIOT CITY ‘Burn the Night’

(8/10) When I received this album my first thought was: "Why do I get Triumph's 'Surveillance' album?" Things straightened out rather quickly since the sender of this album is not Triumph but a band called Riot City and although the artwork reminds a lot of the classical Triumph release this record contains totally different music....

CD review MYRATH ‘Shehili’

(8/10) Myrath is an interesting outfit in many aspects. Myrath, that’s Arabic for ‘heritage’, hails from Tunisia, which is per se already something more unusual and it shows that Metal is uniting people from all over this planet.

CD review RUTHLESS ‘Evil Within’

(7/10) Underground legends Ruthless evoked the 'Discipline of Steel' back in 1986 when the band premiered with a ten track comprising longplayer. Although the album wasn't a bad one, competition was quite strong at the time and an upcoming grunge vibe didn't make things easy either. As a result Ruthless parted ways in 1990. 25...

CD review ENFORCER ‘Zenith’

(8/10) It's not new era Swedish metallers Enforcer are heading towards, but the new album is a significant change compared to what the guys released previously to 'Zenith'.

CD review GRAND MAGUS ‘Wolf God’

(8/10) Grand Magus, that’s Heavy Metal hailing from the North since many years. The trio from Stockholm, Sweden started in 1996 and what was more Stoner/Doom in the beginning evolved to Heavy Metal rather quickly. The well-known ‘Iron Will’ album from 2008 paved the way for bigger success and in the meantime Grand Magus is... Continue Reading →

CD review ASTRAL DOORS ‘Worship or Die’

(8/10) What comes to your mind if you read about Astral Doors? I guess it's Dio, Black Sabbath and more traditional heavy metal.
