CD review ARMORED SAINT ‘Punching the Sky’

‘Punching the Sky’ is done with a steelworker approach rather a Houdini show. There are no tricks or false bottom. Armored Saint and ‘Punching the Sky’ is real and authentic from start to finish. The band successfully lift the bar that was already on a very high level. ‘Punching the Sky’ is a clear candidate for becoming ‘Album of the Year’.

CD review CIRITH UNGOL ‘Forever Black’

Cirith Ungol's return ends after glorious 40 minutes with the last tones of 'Forever Black', the title track. I was lucky that I could witness the Cirith Ungol's live show at Rock Hard festival in 2018 and at the time I couldn't imagine, holding a new record in hands. But sometimes dreams turn into reality. Fans of the band and Epic Metal in general will love this album and I can highly recommend it. The underground pioneers and inventors of Epic Metal are back, hopefully for many more years.
