Dragonforce – Reaching Into Infinity (EarMusic)

Dragonforce is one of those bands that you either love or loathe as the band hits us with their seventh album with new drummer Gee Anzalone showing the fans what he can do. Their last album “Maximum Overload” was a decent if unambitious album when.. Read More

Oversense - The Storyteller (S/R)

Oversense – The Storyteller (S/R)

Oversense. It’s a non-committal, less-than-obvious name isn’t it? It gives away nothing about the style of the album to follow. And to dub Oversense merely as Melodic Heavy Metal is also painting them into a corner that they will come out fighting from with teeth.. Read More

Grave Digger - Healed By Metal (Napalm)

Grave Digger – Healed By Metal (Napalm)

Germany’s Grave Digger need no introduction, they consistently provide quality heavy and power metal albums, although many rejoice in the early period, as I have said before, there’s no need to re-write history, although a few may have been surprised by the album that featured.. Read More
