Urne - The Mountain Of Gold (SR)

Urne – The Mountain Of Gold (SR)

Personally, I was a fan of Hang The Bastard. Their albums were tight and full of passion while they were a sight to behold live. Urne then, is a most welcome arrival as two HTB members join forces. Joseph Nally on bass and vocals with.. Read More
Toledo Steel – No Quarter (Dissonance)

Toledo Steel – No Quarter (Dissonance)

Southampton’s Toledo Steel are on a great journey. Ever present in the UK metal scene over the last few years, I am quite pleased with the progression and this, to finally get to their debut album release. It just shows what can be achieved born.. Read More
Monument – Hellhound (Rock Of Angels)

Monument – Hellhound (Rock Of Angels)

How not to make friends and influence me; open the album with a pirate themed song called ‘William Kidd’, make it historically dubious (if ever there was a guy whose crew didn’t do their best to serve him well it was Kidd, and he had.. Read More
Evil-Lÿn – Disciple of Steel (No Remorse)

Evil-Lÿn – Disciple of Steel (No Remorse)

Tampere, Finland is a talented place, many bands I know come from there and Evil-Lÿn are another one. A traditional heavy metal act formed 11 years ago, with a debut EP behind them in 2012. If you like Enforcer, Chastain, Satan’s Fall (also members of.. Read More
Traitors Gate – Fallen (No Remorse)

Traitors Gate – Fallen (No Remorse)

Reignited after a resurgence of interest following what was supposed to be a one off reunion at Newcastle’s Brofest in 2017 (I subsequently saw them in Germany too), the band decided there was more to offer. A self-released EP appeared last year; these songs appear.. Read More
Age Of Taurus – The Colony Slain (Rise Above Records)

Age Of Taurus – The Colony Slain (Rise Above Records)

Bizarre as it sounds, but it has been an all too long five years since the rather excellent debut by Age Of Taurus, namely the doom laden majesty that was ‘Desperate Souls of Tortured Times’, a fact that surprised me as it was only a.. Read More
Tantal – Ruin (Mazzar Records)

Tantal – Ruin (Mazzar Records)

So this new Tantal album came my way and as I always like to do before I embark on a review, I read what the label/promotions agency have to say about the band. What instantly intrigued (and amused) me about it is that the comparisons.. Read More
Black Cyclone - Death Is King (Gates of Hell Records)

Black Cyclone – Death Is King (Gates of Hell Records)

There was a time in the history of heavy metal, where it was hard to know just where exactly NWOBHM ended, and thrash begun. In fact, arguably before the term “thrash” metal was even in very regular parlance, the “speed metal” term was used to.. Read More
Sanhedrin – A Funeral for the World (Cruz Del Sur)

Sanhedrin – A Funeral for the World (Cruz Del Sur)

If you like classic, melodic heavy metal and bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest or Black Sabbath, or if you’ve liked them at one time, you should definitely check out this new band from Brooklyn, NYC. They are excellent. But don’t think of them as.. Read More
Riot – Armor of Light (Nuclear Blast)

Riot – Armor of Light (Nuclear Blast)

Riot became heavy metal legends in their own lifetimes when they produced a string of albums in the late 70s and early 80s – a time when it wasn’t unusual for bands to produce an album of shockingly good quality every year or two. Rock.. Read More
Primordial - Exile Amongst The Ruins (Metal Blade)

Primordial – Exile Amongst The Ruins (Metal Blade)

Primordial barely need an introduction. A back catalogue reaching back to the mid 90’s and an enviable reputation as underground metal stalwarts, their reputation is sealed. Ninth full length release, “Exile Amongst The Ruins” finds the band bringing a raw feel, looking back to the.. Read More
Dee Calhoun – Go To The Devil  (Argonauta Records)

Dee Calhoun – Go To The Devil (Argonauta Records)

Perhaps best known as the voice of Iron Man, a stalwart of the underground world of Doom that has now finished with the far too early death of founder Alfred Morris III, Dee Calhoun proves that he is in no way a man just content.. Read More
