CD review WILDERUN ‘Veil of Imagination’

If you don't have 'Veil of Imagination' on your prog metal radar yet, you should see a bright shining new dot on your radar display by now. What these five guys from Boston deliver is definitely impressive. Bombastic Pogg Metal with high density, varied and excitingly performed, that is what makes this album stand out.

CD review WHITE STONES 'Kuarahy'

Martin Mendez steps out of the shadows and stands with White Stones in the spotlight with a first prove of work that shows that the Uruguayan musician has much more to offer than merely a solid grooving bassline for Opeth.
