Sacred Leather - Ultimate Force

In spite of what I implied on the Forum/Reviews Discussion thread, Indianapolis’ Sacred Leather isn’t that bad – that is, if mid-tempo Judas Priest meets Ivory Tiger (welcome to the safari!) inspired chutzpah is what you’re in for. Signed with the irreproachable Cruz del Sur Music record label, the Hoosier trad metal twin-guitar quintet...

Ammunition - Ammunition

Dropping the Åge Sten Nielsen “characterization”, this is meant to be the follow up album to 2014’s “Åge Sten Nilsen’s” Ammunition debut “Shanghaied”. Teaming up with Erik from Eclipse, W.E.T etc., must have been one of the best ideas that Age had after a neat but little disoriented second solo album and...

Dusan Jevtovic - Live at Home

Less than a year after the release of the studio album “No Answer”, Dusan Jevtovic returns with a new live release, this time under the title “Live at Home”. As you can see by its title this album was recorded live at Decije Pozoriste, Kragujevac, Serbia, on December 23rd, 2016. It was actually recorded at Dusan’s homeland. Dusan had...

Sonic Prophecy - Savage Gods

Sonic Prophecy’s “Savage Gods”, released last month under Rockshots Records, is one of those lighter fare, mid-tempo power metal albums which leave you neither hot or cold as it simply feels like the band is ingloriously holding back its full potential while still serving up a mixture of decent riffs, powerful guitar solos of the time-honored p-...

Royal Hunt - Cast in Stone

After very busy 3 years for Royal Hunt and for the band’s mastermind André Andersen himself, they are finally back with their new work entitled “Cast in Stone” that has been released independently this time. André told me that his was part of a general change and of course a kinda attentive move, cuz they wanted to get more involved...

Fuzz Lord - Fuzz Lord

Its burnt-out, retro cover art withstanding, a further American doom/stoner metal band worth checking out is Chillicothe (rhymes with “coffee”), Ohio’s Fuzz Lord, who, following a very short two track EP in 2014, “The Key in Silence”, has roughly round the bend with its first full-length proper, a self-titled and eight tracked “...

Saxon - Thunderbolt

Saxon – now pumping out metal for just over forty years – celebrate the release of their twenty second year and show no visible signs of slowing down or stopping anytime soon. The British dogs of war seem unstoppable and after celebrating their 40th anniversary last year in grand style, strike with another metallic bolt of thunder with their titular...

Angra - Ømni

Of all things… Angra, have gone through ups and downs and 2015 and “Secret Garden” sort of started a third nova “era” in Angra’s history – but one that wasn’t quite as impressive as their highly original – latin sprinkled power metal with superb musicianship of yesteryear, but an almost equally impressive heavy...

Wolftooth - Wolftooth

Yet another exciting Indiana doom/heavy metal act alongside Wretch, Spirit Division and Sacred Leather, which has recently introduced its first foray to the masses is Richmond’s vulpine and toothsome Wolftooth with a titular forty-minute, eight tracked sonic attack readily bringing to mind a loose and gritty cross between The Sword – notably the Texans...

Magick Touch - Blades, Chains, Whips & Fire

Footloose and melodic 70s rock fans are in for a helluva treat with Bergen, Norway’s Magick Touch, which, at the turn of the New Year, released its sophomore full-length, “Blades, Chains, Whips & Fire”, under Edged Circle Productions, following a rather extensive, double CD debut in 2016. Representing a confounding jumble albeit yummy treasure...
