Judas Priest - Firepower

This is it! Judas Priest are back and they are not kidding at all! Well, to tell you the truth the fans had been longing for such an album and the “Metal Gods” offered it generously! I won’t go on and say many things about the new album. Glenn Tipton is simply a “metal hero”, since he managed to write and record “Firepower...

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...

Lechery - We Are All Born Evil

Ack! I can barely contain my excitement and joy upon gleaning Lechery’s latest (and first release in seven years!), “We Are All Born Evil”, hot off the press courtesy of Blood Music Records, so bear with me as I do it justice without falling out of my chair or breaking it into a million little pieces.   Hailing from Halmstead, Sweden,...

Jono - Life

Swedes Jono are a band built around the talents of one Johan Norrby, who initially wanted to do a solo project (hence their name – the first two letters of his name and surname), but eventually they turned into a full time band. The easiest way to describe them is Sparks meets Queen. They are idiosyncratic, like the former and eclectic and bold with their...

Arrayan Path - Dawn of Aquarius

Although I tout myself as a worldly metal head my knowledge of Asian, African and Middle-Eastern outfits is shamefully lacking as I primarily set my sights on either Europe or the Western Hemisphere. Thankfully, I’ve been recently presented with Arrayan Path, an epic power metal band with American roots now based in Cyprus and its sixth full-length, “...

Sorcerer - The Crowning of the Fire King

The state of doom these days is rather bleak, which under normal circumstances, should be good news, but the current reigning kings of it, Candlemass, seem to have fallen in disrepair, without their natural leader and with Mats Leven doing a good job, but making it sound more Crux, than Mass. Below and Mirror, bizarrely both Metal Blade acts too, have done well in...

Night - Raft of the World

Blimey! How is it that metal bands with super pedestrian monikers often turn out absolute gems (i.e. Night Demon, Pentagram, Wolf, you know the drill!) and by the same token “harbour” way more clout than expected? To this end, I shall call the phenomenon “Pedestrian Law”; for this “Night” owl, nothing could exemplify this more...

Les Friction - Dark Matter

I’ve been longing for this album for some 5 years now. Finally, the guys from Les Friction returned with the second part of the story that began on their homonymous debut. The second part of the story takes place in 2051 AD. Dark Matter is growing to consume the universe’s home dimension. While traveling to other dimensions to escape their realities at...

Kim Seviour - Recovery is Learning

When something is over, then a new road opens ahead… that’s what exactly came on my mind when I listened to the debut solo release from Kim Seviour, the ex-vocalist of progsters Touchstone. Kim left the band almost two years ago, and after a time-period she spent for herself, she’s back in music again… and that’s great. Kim has an...

Anthriel - Transcendence

Anthriel is a Finnish melodic prog metal band that was formed in 2004 and released their debut album “The Pathway” in 2010. It took them almost 7 years to come up with their sophomore release, entitled “Transcendence”, but that time gap doesn’t seem to have affected them, at least in the music part. Also, the band has two new members,...
