Then Comes Silence – Machine (SPV)

Nothing melts my frozen heart as much as the current resurgence of Post Punk sounds. (You say post punk I still like to say Goth). With bands like Beastmilk and Publicist UK coming out of the dry ice in the… Continue Reading →

Supersuckers – Play That Rock ‘N’ Roll (SPV)

Me, I’ve been a fan since Sacrilicious Sounds and always welcome the arrival of a new bit of rock n roll irresponsibility from Eddie and the guys. You expect bright, sparky country punk rock and roll, some excellent wry humour… Continue Reading →

Rage – Wings Of Rage (Steamhammer/SPV)

Veteran German Power Metal band Rage (because I reckon even Rage main-man Peavy will be OK with the ‘veteran’ term after 37 years in the business delivering 23 studio albums, not to mention all the EPs and live stuff) return… Continue Reading →

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 →

Uneven Structure – Paragon (Longbranch/SPV)

One of the things that we, as heavy rock/metal music fans, often enjoy is the dense sea of different genres that encompass the music we love. There seems not to be a niche untouched, a style not overturned, an approach… Continue Reading →

Wires & Lights – A Chasm Here And Now (SPV)

Wires & Lights are a relatively new band from Berlin, Germany, and the album at hand, A Chasm Here And Now, is their first long player. What’s it like? Well, the press info is all in superlatives. And no, that’s… Continue Reading →

Domination Inc – Memoir 414 (SPV)

Domination Inc from Athens are a thrash band with a fairy story. Don’t worry I do not mean that they are Megadeth with unicorns and Lars Ulrich as the wicked stepmother (though I would pay to see that). Rather, the… Continue Reading →

Lacrimas Profundere – Bleeding The Stars (SPV)

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 →
