DREAD SOVEREIGN Alchemical Warfare

I guess that majority of fans know Irish trio Dread Sovereign as the band that features A. Nemtheanga of Primordial in their ranks (besides vocals, here also playing bass) but I feel that this entity can stand on its two legs aside from lazy Primordial comparison. Truth be told, besides Alan’s vocals there are no…

ARMORED SAINT Punching the Sky

Here we have the 8th album by American Metal Blade institution Armored Saint and like the album title suggests, this troop is not satisfied with status the world is currently in but they rather opt to go against all odds. Push through the limit, punch sky, show the middle finger to overall depressive state… hey,…

THEM Return To Hemmersmoor

The world is, as we all know, in state of chaos but international band Them is back without a pause with their 3rd full length entitled Return To Hemmersmoor to conclude their infamous horror trilogy. We all know that this troop is labeled as mere King Diamond copy and it is easy to dismiss them…

ANAAL NATHRAKH Endarkenment

Is there a better time for the new release of two British extremists gathered under the name of Anaal Nathrakh? The world is in chaos, future is uncertain – in one sentence things are not looking nice at all. Anaal Nathrakh have been devoted to creating the soundtrack for the end times from their very…

SIX FEET UNDER Nightmares of the Decomposed

Well, we all know the story about this band – love ‘em or hate ‘em, they are here for a long time and apparently here to stay which the fact that Nightmares of the Decomposed is their 17th album also proves. As for myself, I have to admit that their deliberately simple brand of death…

THE OCEAN Phanerozoic II: Mesozoic | Cenozoic

German collective The Ocean are back with the conclusion of the saga that started back in 2018 with Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic and just like we got used from them, prepare to be surprised yet again. By now, this troop has its standard sound which is taking cues from various scenes but there is no mistaking…

LIK Misanthropic Breed

Underground heads are in the know of two metal bands with the same name from Sweden but for this occasion we are dealing with Stockholm deathsters Lik who are back again with their third album. The title of the album is obviously dealing with standard death metal themes which go hand in hand with the…

CARACH ANGREN Franckensteina Strataemontanus

I am following CA since their very beginning and their debut full-length and since I have just lately done one more interview and present song by song their latest effort of Metal Sound pages it was just around a time to seal the door and write a decent review concerning their brand new offering. Franckensteina…

FALCONER From a Dying Ember

Although the year 2020 turned out to be horrible due to raging COVID-19 pandemic we are all sick of by now, there are some cool things happening in the metal world to ease our pain while being away from gigs, festivals and all our favorite activities. One of those things is for sure the return…

ENSIFERUM Thalassic

I am sorry to tell you that Serbia is facing another huge wave of covid-19 infection but on the other hand we have to turn to things we love… and what is better thing to keep us through this chaos and give us strength than our beloved metal? Finnish sword bearers Ensiferum are here with…
