Beast In Black – From Hell With Love (Nuclear Blast Records)

For those that need some back history to this Finnish band, it was formed by Anton Kabanen when he left Battle Beast in 2015 and on the back of that brought in a raft of talent that resulted in the… Continue Reading →

Brothers Of Metal – Prophecy Of Ragnarok (AFM)

So AFM sign a Swedish Power/Heavy Metal band. No big news there. AFM sign a Swedish Power/Heavy Metal band with 8 members – well that’s a bit more out of the ordinary…3 guitarists and 3 vocalists (with a bassist and… 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 →

Sinsaenum – Repulsion for Humanity (earMUSIC)

Sinsaenum is the brain child of Dragonforce bassist, Frederic Leclercq, who back in 2010 formulated some ideas to create a death metal beast. These ideas weren’t cemented into the metal worlds foundations until 2016, when Stephane Buriez, of Loudblast, and… Continue Reading →

Skineater – Cerebral Relics (Slaughterhouse Records)

I wasn’t familiar with this Swedish DM band before receiving this EP (the follow up release to their 2013 debut album “Dermal Harvest”) but a quick bit of research made them sound like a pretty tasty prospect being formed of… Continue Reading →

Fireforce -Annihilate The Evil (Limb Music)

With an opening track called ‘The Boys From Down Under’, it’s pretty obvious where this energetic Power Metal band hail from! Yep, Belgium. Not known for it’s Power Metal pedigree (and a fair old distance from Australia), Fireforce are certainly… Continue Reading →

Civil War – The Last Full Measure (Napalm Records)

It’s the third album from Sabaton refugees Civil War (What? At least I didn’t call them “Sabaton 2.0”, “Sabaton Lite” or “Diet Sabaton” as I’ve seen them referred to by other, harsher reviewers!). So let’s get that out of the… Continue Reading →

Hammerfall – Built To Last (Napalm)

As summer ends and winter looms on the horizon, the clichéd view to take is that the later months of the year are ripe for the Northern European stongholds of music to flex their worth, given how in places, it’s… Continue Reading →

Pain – Coming Home (Nuclear Blast)

A lot of metal fans are a quite dismissive of Pain. I’ve heard Peter Tägtgren’s (pretty much) one man band as ‘cheesy industrial electro-rock’, a sort of ‘Rammstein-lite’ or ‘I Can’t Believe It’s Not Kovenant ’. Now if you’re one… Continue Reading →

Sabaton – The Last Stand (Nuclear Blast)

Sabaton are one of those bands everyone is aware of, and if you aren’t, you soon will be. The Swedes have a truly energetic and engaging live performance which is truly captivating and even those of you who dismiss them… Continue Reading →

Rock Im Revier 2016 (Westfenhalle, Dortmund, 26-28/5/26 )

Rock Im Revier is a relative newcomer to the European festival scene which some people say is overcrowded and at times, I do have to agree with them. You only have to look at how many festivals have folded recently… Continue Reading →

Delain – Lunar Prelude (Napalm)

Having released ‘The Human contradiction” in 2014, and toured the globe seemingly non-stop since, selling out their own shows and supporting the likes of Sabaton, Within Temptation and Nightwish along the way, Delain have gone from strength to strength and… Continue Reading →
