The Dead Daisies - Burn It Down

The Dead Daisies are one of those bands you can’t help but enjoy. With influences from some of the great acts of the 70’s and 80’s like Aerosmith, Bad Company, and Foreigner these guys personify Rock n’ Roll. In the five years they’ve been together they have made three studio albums, a couple of EPs, and even have a live album under...

Primal Fear - Apocalypse

I was sort of looking at a wiki, just to remind myself how many albums Primal Fear since their inception in 1997 and I was rather surprised to count some 12 studio albums in 21 years. The core duo of Matt Sinner and Ralph Scheepers has been always there and Tom Naumann has been on guitars on and off taking hiatuses from the band that has been relatively steady in...

The Aaron Clift Experiment - If All Goes Wrong

Three years after their sophomore release “Outer Light, Inner Darkness”, the Austin TX band, The Aaron Clift Experiment, is back with their third full-length album. This time the band has a new drummer, Tim Smith, on board. Furthermore, the band parted ways with their long-time guitarist Eric Gutierrez, a few months before their recordings would take...

Lizzy Borden - My Midnight Things

While Lizzy Borden were pretty active during their 80s heydey, since their “re-union” in the late 90s only a measly three new albums of material (this one inclusive) have been released. Some older out of print material has been re-released and updated from VHS to DVD in the case of the Murderess Metal Show and the “offshoot” band Starwood...

Malison - Malison

A money tunnel crawl away from squalid and nefarious Tijuana is San Diego’s Malison, a Maiden-ishly melodic albeit caustic and saturnine trad metal trio, which furtively crept out of the shadows with its titular, eight tracked debut full-length released in early June under Combat Records, the raucously familiar Brooklyn based mainstay behind a pan-alphabetic...

Falcun - Kingdom Come

Since digging Singapore’s Witchseeker and its sleek full-length debut, “When the Clock Strikes”, I’ve come to seek further slinging Southeast Asian sundries of a similarly sordid yet sonorous sort (try saying that following a bong hit or two). Besides, my “heavy metal reviewing World map” wouldn’t be complete without...

Knightmare - Walk through the Fire

Suffice to say, any band which sports the word “knight” in its moniker while alluding to Mr. Sandman deserves a gold star, even before testing the waters with a cursory listen. Compound this with actual kick-ass traditional heavy metal and we’ve a dead-to-rights winner. Hence, my latest affinity for Raleigh, North Carolina’s Knightmare,...

Blitzkrieg - Judge Not!

NWOBHM legends Blitzkrieg, a band that famously Metallica covered and were inspired by, are by all accounts not the most prolific of bands in terms of output, especially since the recent re-emergence of Satan, another NWOBHM band that frontman Brian Ross also fronts that seemed to push Blitzkrieg to the backburner of things. With only 3 original albums and a re-...

Monument - Hellhound

  “Excitement fills the air Tonight we cause a riot! On iron horses Watch us ride like knights of old No weekend warriors in our midst We cause a riot! Our engines hold up All that cannot be controlled”...   Namely, Monument’s classy, uplifting vibes and superior grasp of proper Iron Maiden emulation and reverence, ranging from...

Witchtower / Blackslash - A Tribute to Randy

What a boon! The primary bands responsible for ceremoniously rocking my brain pan this summer – one, with its fantastic third full-length released in May, the other, thanks to a devastatingly festive and engaging 2014 titular debut – boast of a highly novel and collaborative split CD released in April under Iron Shield Records, Blackslash’s choice...
