DESASTER Churches Without Saints

German legends Desaster are in very cozy situation of their career. Tried and true for a million times, the band is probably the most known name in black thrash realm and by now it is sure they are not about to wimp out and pull some ‘’mature’’ album upon us. So now it is obvious…

VULTURE Dealin’ Death

Oh damn, what a killer attack from Vulture! When I listen to their third full length entitled Dealin’ Death, it seems that its predecessor – also very solid Ghastly Waves & Battered Graves – was just a preparation for this one. The thing is, German speedsters’ debut album The Guillotine was all out metal fast…

ARTILLERY X

Danish cult band Artillery is a paradox unto itself: for a band that is present one way or another for 40 years they show no signs of slowing down and yet they manage to overcome any obstacle that is thrown their way effortlessly . One of the worst yet is passing of Morten Stutzer. long…

STELLAR TOMB Hypnos

Stellar Tomb proudly represent the quality in metal music from southern Serbia areas, and my hometown Niš, and also listening to them live beforehand, I was really intrigued for theirnext studio song, called Hypnos. As far as I know how this band’s songs sounds live, I expected for this song so soundsa bit different then…

STORMRULER Under the Burning Eclipse

Stormruler is a newcomer on the scene but yet the band has already signed a deal with Napalm Records. These two guys are coming from US and definitely one could sense in their style that they’re not European band, especially that they don’t come from eastern Europe. One thing is for sure they are one…

WARRIOR PATH The Mad King

Damn! If we thought that we saw everything good regarding power metal in this year, I musttell you that we’re so wrong, and that’s a good thing!Ladies and gentlemen, Warrior Path is striking back and they big the big guns to the powermetal table, and it’s name is Daniel Heiman. Yes, a power metal vocal…

WITHERFALL Curse of Autumn Century Media

It has been a long time since the last time I disovered a new band or a new record in themetal genre of prog/power, in a sense of old school bands such as Manticora, Communic,Adagio, and so on.And as already mentioned Adagio in this concept, and I must add that it’s one of the bandsthat…

IOTUNN Access All Worlds Metal Blade CD

What a nice surprise! When I saw the name Iotunn on Metal Blade’s e pool it meant absolutely nothing to me but the fact that Jón Aldará (singer of Hamferð and Barren Earth) is in the line up picked my interest immediately so I rushed into the album. The band is labeled on Metal archives…

THE CROWN Royal Destroyer Metal Blade

Swedish destroyers The Crown have reached the album number 10 in Royal Destroyer which is no small feat, considering the band’s rough past but they have soldiered on mercilessly and here we are. They have never been the biggest band from Sweden, not riding any wave of popularity but they have always enjoyed cult status…

PALADINE Entering the Abyss

After 4 years if I am correct Greek power metal band Paladine has returned once more to rock the very foundation of earth. I have to say that I follow the band since their very beginnings and their debut record was one very promising act when it was released back than in 2017, but, yet…
