Prong – Age of Defiance (Steamhammer / SPV)

NYC crossover kings Prong have been ploughing their own furrow for well over three decades and show no signs of retiring to their pipe and slippers.  The merging of a Pantera-esque swagger with an industrial edge forged through their links… Continue Reading →

Die Krupps – Vision 2020 Vision (Oblivion/SPV)

Thee Ed expressed a little surprise when I didn’t immediately plump for this album when the lists were released. I had to explain, somewhat embarrassed, that despite my love and long history with industrial and EBM and having been aware… Continue Reading →

Edenbridge – Dynamind (Steamhammer/SPV)

I have to admit that I have something of a love hate relationship with symphonic metal. When done well it is absolutely stunning, but if not then it can be mediocre at best and over the years I have swung… Continue Reading →

My first encounter with this German outfit was 15 years ago when I accidentally picked up ‘Ave End’. Something I was rather glad to have done, after I gave the CD a listen. Since then I’ve reviewed a few more… Continue Reading →

Magnum – Sacred Blood “Divine” Lies (SPV)

I admit that I’ve not really had anything to do with Magnum for a long, long time. I’ve heard bits and bats over the years but I just wasn’t a fan of the direction they went in from the 90’s… Continue Reading →

Alpha Tiger – iDentity (SPV)

Raise those horns everyone – and let me see those fists in the air! Oh Yes – The third album from German Metallers Alpha Tiger has arrived…and it’s a full-on Metal-fest! OK, I know the other two were hardly jazz-rock,… Continue Reading →
