Hammercult – Built For War (SPV)

18 months ago or so I reviewed this bands sophomore and was mightily impressed with its approach and style as yet another Israeli band sees fit to let us know that their metal scene is alive and kicking furiously. Depending… Continue Reading →

Titans Eve – Chasing The Devil (S/R)

Evil Invaders – Pulses of Pleasure (Napalm)

Hibria – Silent Revenge (AFM)

This band formed in 1996 in Brazil and to date I find this one of the best exports in the power metal field from that country in rather a long time. To say this album is infectious is an understatement…. Continue Reading →

Battlecross – War Of Will (Metal Blade)

Recently I purchased this bands debut album “Pursuit Of Honor” and was thoroughly satisfied with their brand of screaming thrash with tons of groove and top end making it a weighty release. My anticipation of this sophomore effort was high… Continue Reading →

Red Lamb – ST (Hansel & Gretel)

Remember Dan Spitz, go on think back, yep that’s him one time guitarist on the first six Anthrax albums before leaving music altogether and becoming a master Swiss watchmaker. Mr Spitz also states he has obsessive compulsive disorder and that… Continue Reading →
