Battle Beast – No More Hollywood Endings (Nuclear Blast Records)

I love Battle Beast, their albums, live shows, attitude and all round approach to writing catchy heavy metal songs but I definitely struggled to engage with this fifth album. There is absolutely nothing wrong or weird about the album, every… Continue Reading →

Unleash The Archers – Apex (Napalm)

Still resolutely having nothing to do with peach schnapps or BBC Radio 4, Canadian Metallers Unleash The Archers unleash (obviously…) their much anticipated fourth album. Ready to pound and plunder in equal measure, the band continue to straddle Metal territory… Continue Reading →
