The Northern Irish fun filled thrash attack is back once again as Gama Bomb prepare to drop their payload of explosive and infectious thrash with album #6. Featuring some artwork which could rightfully be mistaken for a Judas Priest release, this 12-track, sub 40 minute.. Read More
Road Warrior – Power (Gates of Hell)

Road Warrior – Power (Gates of Hell)

My first experience of this Australian band was their two track demo tape ‘Ignition’, this jumped out of the review list so I went for it. As expected, they’ve stuck to their traditional metal influences and laid them bare. For me I find this an.. Read More

Manimal – Purgatorio (AFM)

Manimal – Purgatorio (AFM)

Impressive Swedish Heavy/Power Metal band Manimal may have a bit of a silly name, but there’s nothing particularly comical about the delivery of their particular blend of high energy, no-nonsense Metal. Not for them the symphonic noodlings of Sonata Arctica or Kamelot (though they clearly.. Read More
Wytch Hazel – II: Sojourn (Bad Omen Records)

Wytch Hazel – II: Sojourn (Bad Omen Records)

Well, Wytch Hazel produced my album of the year in “Prelude” back in 2016, and it has remained in heavy rotation in my music list ever since. That album was a heady, smoky and somewhat charmingly naive piece of folk-ish rock warmth, with an insane.. Read More

Khemmis – Desolation (Nuclear Blast)

Allow me to start this review with a couple of statements that may cause some surprise.  Firstly, I’ve been sat on this recording for a couple of weeks before being able to give it a decent spin as amazingly enough this reviewing lark doesn’t actually.. Read More

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
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
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
