Fleshgod Apocalypse – Veleno (Nuclear Blast)

When a friend of mine suggested I give ‘King’ a listen in 2016, as I’d never heard of the Roman trio Fleshgod Apocalypse at the time, I was rather quick to complement him and thank him profusely for the introduction…. Continue Reading →

Possessed – Revelations Of Oblivion (Nuclear Blast)

Being responsible for creating a genre is a pretty big burden. People expect a lot from you, and after all why should they not? However often these bands can equally be overshadowed by more contemporary bands or at least those… Continue Reading →

Enforcer – Zenith (Nuclear Blast)

Sweden’s Enforcer, I can’t believe it has been 4 years since their last one ‘From Beyond’ of which I thought was a world dominating effort. So when this album landed, there’s an easy choice for me. But wait a minute;… 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 →

Eluveitie – Ategnatos (Nuclear Blast)

There’s eerie mood music emerging from the speakers and a familiar dour Scottish bloke is doing a narrative – there’s no doubting it, the new Eluveitie album has begun! It’s been a while – we were tantalized with “Evocation II”,… Continue Reading →

Anthem – Nucleus (Nuclear Blast)

Anthem should be a name more familiar with long-term Heavy Metal fans than they appear to be. I apologize to anyone who is already in the know, but bear with me while I remind everyone else that Anthem were one… Continue Reading →

Forever Still – Breathe In Colours (Nuclear Blast)

Forever Still have flourished since they burst out of the blocks in 2013, and this Danish animal has established a solid and robust fan base within their genre, partly to their unwavering touring commitments and prestigious support slots with behemoths… Continue Reading →

Cellar Darling – The Spell (Nuclear Blast)

Blah Blah ex-Eluveitie Blah Blah Blah. Right, that’s that out of the way, no need to mention that again – Cellar Darling are 100% their own entity with a style of their own that has no particular resemblance to their… Continue Reading →

Fallujah – Undying Light (Nuclear Blast)

Fallujah’s previous album “Dreamless” was just amazing, and I saw them put on a sterling performance at UK TechFest, so my hopes for “Undying Light” were high. Interestingly the band now talks of a “new era”. Well it might be… Continue Reading →

Children Of Bodom – Hexed (Nuclear Blast)

It’s been 3 years since the release of ‘I Worship Chaos’, the first CoB album I heard, and admit to still being remiss about going back to listen to their first 8 albums. But then it doesn’t appear that they… Continue Reading →

In Flames – I, The Mask (Nuclear Blast)

Last time out, In Flames did not impress me. In fact, I believe that I proclaimed “Battles” being the ‘death of the melodic death metal pioneers’. In some lights this is true. In Flames, most known for being one of… Continue Reading →

Overkill – The Wings of War (Nuclear Blast)

Overkill need no introduction, they are thrash masters and since I got into them in the 80’s I have never felt disappointed by one of their releases, no matter what people say, these are the dogs bollocks, always have been,… Continue Reading →
