CREMATORY Monument

Two years after Antiserum (2014), which was perhaps the worst ever offering delivered by Crematory, the group has made comeback with Monument, the album which is,if nothing, much better than previous full-length.

AMON AMARTH Jomsviking

After several newer records we can conclude that Twilight of the Thunder God (2008) and With Oden on Our Side (2006) are still standing as one of the best records when it comes to Amon Amarth.

This…

IF THESE TREES COULD TALK The Bones of a Dying World

Even though Metal Blade is well known for being one of the oldest and most respected metal labels in the world, they like to throw curveball here and there at us to show that they are growing beyond their preconceived realms with their respectable roster. Good proof for these words would be their signing of…

MOONSORROW Jumalten Aika

Jumalten Aika is a brand new issue coming from Finland based masters of epic and dramatic sounds Moonsorrow. After five years of waiting band has finally released their brand new effort. And, yet it seems, that this one could be named as one of their best releases ever! I have to say that I was…
