Martyr – Fists Of Iron (Gates of Hell)

I have been waiting for this for a while, and just as I start to write the tape arrives from the band themselves with the original artwork. The release under review here from Gates of Hell Records has a different,… Continue Reading →

Primal Fear – Metal Commando (Nuclear Blast)

For 22 years Primal Fear have been one of the driving forces in Euro Power Metal, standing alongside fellow countrymen Rage, Accept, Helloween, Blind Guardian etc… Basically, they’re one of a long list of bands who know how to blend… Continue Reading →

Ambush – Infidel (High Roller)

Ambush are back, I really love this band and there is no surprises here on their third album. Ambush have always been masters of harmony, both from the guitar and the vocals. This is once again very well represented here… Continue Reading →

Death SS – Rock ‘N’ Roll Armageddon (High Roller)

Things I’ve always loved in music are shock, cheese and the utterly weird, from the early days of Alice Cooper and Arthur Brown to the easy listening Glam style of Sweet, Slade and Wizzard, two of which had cracking Christmas… Continue Reading →

Pulver – Kings Under The Sand (Gates Of Hell)

So if I was to get all imaginary classroom here and ask hands up anyone who has heard NWOBHM legends Tank, there would be plenty of hands shoot up around that metaphorical room. None more so than the five enthusiastic… Continue Reading →

U.D.O. – Steelfactory (AFM)

From the outset I have to point out that I wasn’t planning on reviewing an U.D.O album. It’s just that it was looking a little unloved and neglected on the Ave Noctum review pile, and after a career striding through… Continue Reading →

Bullet – Dust to Gold (SPV / Steamhammer)

Bullet are a staple of the scene across Europe, their legendary Bullet Bus is something to witness, then the albums keep coming through and live they are some band to watch. Strange though, their last effort I heard, ‘Full Pull’… Continue Reading →

Panzer – The Fatal Command (Nuclear Blast)

If you didn’t grab Panzer’s debut album “Send Them All To Hell” then have a quiet word with yourself over a stiff drink. It was one of the best heavy metal releases of 2014. A classic Teutonic power trio, Schmier… Continue Reading →

Accept – The Rise of Chaos (Nuclear Blast)

Accept are an institution of metal music, I have no need to go any further with this I feel. So another Accept album starts as it means to go on. From the first few listens, it’s clear, quality is very… Continue Reading →

Stallion – From the Dead (High Roller)

This is Stallion’s second full length album, and I am in agreement with the PR material for this German heavy/speed metal bands efforts, it’s a more refined and mature effort from the start. Blistering into action is the fast ‘Underground… Continue Reading →
