Memoriam – Requiem For Mankind (Nuclear Blast)

Some bands are so legendary that they transcend above and beyond the call of duty. I mean this in as much as they form into an uncontrollable force that cannot be tainted. Just look at Led Zeppelin or Queen, bands… Continue Reading →

Majestica – Above The Sky (Nuclear Blast)

A Symphonic Power Metal band…from Sweden…on Nuclear Blast…called Majestica? And right now the readership has split straight into two camps – the first who read that and went “Oh bloody hell, I know exactly what THAT will be like” and… Continue Reading →

Death Angel – Humanicide (Nuclear Blast)

Humanicide is Death Angel’s ninth album and fourth with the current line-up that’s been together for 10 years already. Going from strength to strength and losing absolutely none of their vitality over the years, this album is as fast and… Continue Reading →

Vader – Thy Messenger (Nuclear Blast)

It has been 18 years since I bought a Vader album and nearly as long since I have seen them live. The first thing that’s clearly apparent as I listen to this five track EP, they have lost none of… Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →
