Metalian – Vortex (High Roller)

This Canadian band now presents their third full length release. Their career has been long, over ten years, but with other life commitments, releases have been sparse. I have a couple of their EP releases and so there are not… Continue Reading →

Lunar Shadow – The Smokeless Fires (Cruz Del Sur Music)

Formed in 2014 and with one EP and a long player to their credit, relative German newcomers, Lunar Shadow have released their second album, “The Smokeless Fires”. Though their lifespan has been relatively brief, the journey has not been without… Continue Reading →

Riot City – Burn the Night (No Remorse Records)

With the PR material stating that this is “Screaming Heavy Metal” from Canada, the review could stop there! That’s all you need to know. Riot City are from Alberta, and this is a band whom I have followed since buying… Continue Reading →

Grand Magus – Wolf God (Nuclear Blast)

I have to admit to a certain excitement whenever a new Grand Magus album is about to arrive. The Swede’s have been producing a steady stream of classic sounding heavy metal since 1999 with powerful, uncomplicated songs heavily inspired by… Continue Reading →

Twisted Tower Dire – Wars In The Unknown (No Remorse)

Look up the words ‘stalwarts’ and ‘diehards’ and the dictionary should say ‘see also Twisted Tower Dire’. With three of the five having been together since 1997 – Mark Stauffer (drums), Scott Waldrop (guitars and ultra marathons) and Dave Boyd… Continue Reading →

Texas Metal Outlaws – S/T (Heaven & Hell)

This is a Texan super group, I first I thought this was the Texas Metal Legions destined to play Keep It True next year, but it’s not, although some of the same musicians feature. Primarily, it’s a project put together… Continue Reading →

Convent Guilt – Diamond Cut Diamond (Gates Of Hell Records)

Aussie heavy metal outfit, Convent Guilt deliver their second long player clinging to the golden era sounds of 1978-1982 where the NWOBHM found its feet and today’s giants of our world started to stamp their almighty authority. To worship at… Continue Reading →

Nanowar Of Steel – Stairway To Valhalla (S/R)

Comedy and parody in music is a thorny subject. For every Chicken Song there is a Doctorin the Tardis. Hell, let’s face it the Chicken song was only funny when we were kids. (apologies to anyone under 35 who hasn’t… Continue Reading →
