Iced Earth – Incorruptible (Century Media)

Iced Earth – Incorruptible (Century Media)

There are two distinctive styles of Power Metal. On one hand, you have the ‘European’ take on it, which focuses a lot on melodies in the tracks, the atmosphere of the song and it also heavily favours neo-classical elements, symphonic arrangements/accompaniments and folk like traits... Read More
Mahakala - The Second Fall (Supreme Music Creations)

Mahakala – The Second Fall (Supreme Music Creations)

Another review, and another band I’ve yet to encounter; sometimes that can be a good thing, other times a bad one. I’m glad to say on this occasion my first listen to Mahakala falls firmly into the former, with ‘The Supreme Fall’ managing to straddle.. Read More
Walpyrgus - Walpyrgus Nights (Cruz Del Sur)

Walpyrgus – Walpyrgus Nights (Cruz Del Sur)

Formed 5 years ago, this American heavy metal force is born with members from Twisted Tower Dire, While Heaven Wept and Viper. My interest started when ex-Widow drummer Peter Lemieux joined the band and subsequently bought their demo tape. Roll onto this debut album, and.. Read More
Evo – Warfare (High Roller)

Evo – Warfare (High Roller)

Not sure why we’re reviewing this as Evo clearly is a man who genuinely won’t give a fuck what I think (quite right too). Maybe the record company wants us to say nice things. Will I? We’ll… Evo, last name I always assumed being Stick,.. Read More
Dream Evil – Six (Century Media)

Dream Evil – Six (Century Media)

It has been seven years since any new material emerged from this Swedish metal outfit, that at one time boasted Gus G and Snowy Shaw in the ranks, which isn’t to diminish the stature of the current line-up which is formidable to say the least.. Read More
Legionnaire - Dawn of Genesis (Gates of Hell)

Legionnaire – Dawn of Genesis (Gates of Hell)

This is a debut album from a band from Finland who have been active for some five years now. They play barbaric traditional metal in some quarters, old Swedish metal and NWOBHM in other places. Laden with galloping riffs associated with the NWOBHM scene, musically.. Read More
Nitrogods – Roadkill BBQ (Steamhammer)

Nitrogods – Roadkill BBQ (Steamhammer)

This will be a short one. Nitrogods are German & sound (and look) like a Motorhead / ZZ Top covers band. Which of course, is not necessarily a bad thing. This is their third album of beer soaked, rock & blues and it’s as subtle.. Read More
Thalamus - Hiding From Daylight (Vicisolum)

Thalamus – Hiding From Daylight (Vicisolum)

Swedish Metallers Thalamus return with thunder in their soul after a 4 year hiatus, rejuvenated and with a desire to capture the energy and fire they had on their debut with this their 4th release. Their dark, deep, down and intense Metal credentials have never.. Read More
Tytan - Justice Served (High Roller Records)

Tytan – Justice Served (High Roller Records)

After witnessing a few live shows since their re-emergence, Tytan are more than your typical NWOBHM band. Their debut album may have come out a couple of years too late to be heralded as a major force in the original NWOBHM movement, but it is.. Read More
Dragonforce – Reaching Into Infinity (EarMusic)

Dragonforce – Reaching Into Infinity (EarMusic)

Dragonforce is one of those bands that you either love or loathe as the band hits us with their seventh album with new drummer Gee Anzalone showing the fans what he can do. Their last album “Maximum Overload” was a decent if unambitious album when.. Read More
Damn The Machine: The Story Of Noise Records by David E Gehlke (Deliberation Press)

Damn The Machine: The Story Of Noise Records by David E Gehlke (Deliberation Press)

The year was 1988. And for the past 12 months a large portion of my purchases had been from the catalogue of just one record label: Noise International. I’d realised that I could pick up all the more mainstream metal releases from mates at school.. Read More
The Night Flight Orchestra - Amber Galactic (Nuclear Blast)

The Night Flight Orchestra – Amber Galactic (Nuclear Blast)

Although this is the band’s third album, I understand it’s their first for Nuclear Blast, so there may be plenty of people unaware of exactly who is in this project – so who the hell are they? OK, so you’ve got Björn “Speed” Strid (mainly.. Read More
