Serious Black - Magic (AFM)

Serious Black – Magic (AFM)

Three albums in as many years is a feat many established bands have long since forgone, making this something only seen in the past. Thankfully, Serious Black are bringing this trend back, matching the sheer drive of bands with ‘lesser profiles’ by pumping out high.. Read More

Grand Delusion – Supreme Machine (Minotauro Records)

Those who can make any money, let alone a living out of reviewing are few and far between. The majority of writers are folks like your humble scribe who happen to be fans and want to spread the word of what is good, and maybe.. Read More

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
Iron Mask – Diabolica (AFM)

Iron Mask – Diabolica (AFM)

Iron Mask is now releasing their sixth album and have spent two years preparing it.

Kryptos - Burn Up The Night (AFM)

Kryptos – Burn Up The Night (AFM)

Indian heavy metal is alive and well with Kryptos’ fourth full length effort. My last outing (‘The Ark of Gemini’) proved very positive and ‘Burn Up The Night’ is a touch fresher for me. The metal references on the album artwork immediately have me thinking.. Read More

ADX – Non Serviam (S/R)

This long standing French band started with a trio of albums of really cool speed metal, they tried an English speaking album in 1990 (‘Weird Visions’), but for some reason or other didn’t match their expectations of their former offerings. Now there has been albums.. Read More

Them – Fear Them (Empire Records)

Them – Fear Them (Empire Records)

Them are somewhat of a supergroup of sorts which draws from a wide variety of styles, namely occult, horror, traditional heavy metal and theatrical delivery. In short, you could say it is King Diamond and Mercyful Fate thrown in a blender with Ayreon, Edguy and.. Read More
Rage – My Way (Nuclear Blast)

Rage – My Way (Nuclear Blast)

This may sound like a very odd statement to some people: but I find the idea of a world without Rage difficult to imagine. But, at the same time if you told me you’d never heard a single track by them, I would also have.. Read More
Blizzard Hunter - Heavy Metal to the Vein (Pure Underground Records)

Blizzard Hunter – Heavy Metal to the Vein (Pure Underground Records)

This band are from Lima, Peru and started life as a tribute act in 2006 and up until last year they were known simply as Blizzard – but there are umpteen bands called that! So that maybe the reason for the name change. That aside,.. Read More
Helloween - My God Given Right (Nuclear Blast)

Helloween – My God Given Right (Nuclear Blast)

After several name changes and recruiting band members it was finally decided that the German power metal group would be named Helloween.  Many member changes followed including Michael Kiske who was replaced by Andi Deris.
