Masterplan - Masterplan

It seems that the time has come. The album that all the fans of heavy metal music have been waiting for so long is finally here! What the hell am I talking about??? But, of course, about Masterplan’s debut album! Masterplan, for those who may wonder who they are, is the band that the guitarist Roland Grapow (ex-Helloween) and the drummer Uli Kusch (ex-...

Opeth - Deliverance

There are some rare times in life that every one of us comes up with something really special. From my point of view, music has the first and the last word in people’s mood and it can affect us in many ways. But what exactly happens when you feel and you’re sure that you stand in front of a new great band? What kind of feelings can cross your mind and...

Westworld - Cyberdreams

“Cyberdreams” is the new and the best album that Westworld have released. I really don’t know where to start from! Westworld is the band that Mark Reale (Riot) and Tony Harnell (TNT) formed, some years ago. And now I’m wondering… what more can we wait from musicians like them? The answer is pure melodic hard rock/metal music that very...

Paradise Lost - Symbol of Life

After one album, “Host”, that gave the right to all their rivals to blame them for having lost their “magic touch” and they are becoming a Depeche Mode clone, the OK but fairly mediocre “Believe in Nothing” came… and Paradise Lost seemed like they were left out of the game. Certainly they haven’t spoken their last...

The Hellacopters - By the Grace of God

The Hellacopters is probably the best Swedish band of the last decade. X-Entombed Nick Andersson, who then wanted to explore his hard rock roots, formed them in 1994. In order to describe their musical style I’d better borrow a phrase by Geoff Ginsberg, who has argued that “what the MC5 and Stooges were to the 60s, what Sonic’s Rendezvous Band and...

Porcupine Tree - In Absentia

According to my modest opinion, Pink Floyd is the best group in the history of music. From their followers I know only two groups, which managed to produce music close to the authentic without being cheap imitators, rather producing an original musical suggestion, which only has been created under Floyd’s shadow. The one group is Anathema (from “...

Avantasia - The Metal Opera Pt. II

OK, things here are simple: we are talking about one of the best power metal albums of the year!!! Those who don’t know Avantasia should be ashamed of themselves. It is the side project of Edguy’s singer Tobias Sammet.   This is the second part (the first one was released last year and it was equally amazing), and for once more the musicians who...

Shy - Unfinished Business

Who would believe that Shy would be back again after so many years with the original singer, Tony Mills, in the band again? Who said that hard rock music is not on the rise again? Only a fool can believe such a thing, especially after listening to Shy’s new comeback album! And for those who don’t know Shy, it’s better to stop dealing with rock/...

Warlord - Rising Out of the Ashes

The legend is back. After eighteen whole years of painful (for us) absence from our music scene (at least under the “Warlord” name) William Tsamis and Mark Zonder are here with a new album. Before starting to analyze the new album I feel obliged to say a few words about the history of the band, as most of the new metal fans might not be aware of what...

Pyogenesis - She Makes Me Wish I Had a Gun

The great mysteries of life... Who would ever believe that Pyogenesis would end up playing punk/radio rock??? Surely not me! We are talking about total change of style, as there is nothing to remind the old death metal band they once have been! Even their image is different, as they appear with red ties and things...What can I say? They possibly realized that they...
