Art Of Anarchy - The Madness

Sometimes a good thing can come up out of a tragedy. This is exactly the case with Art Of Anarchy that experienced the loss of their vocalist Scott Weiland in late 2015. The band didn’t call it a day but decided to go on and they found the ideal new vocalist in Scott Stapp (Creed), who seems to have been with the band since the beginning.   Scott,...

The Spiritual Machines - Awake, Alert, Alive Almost

The truth is that I had been looking forward to the second part of Evan’s music story that started with “Volunteer” in 2014. Then again, the composer knows better than us and needs time to complete his work. Patience is a virtue, they say, and that’s right in most of the cases.   “Awake, Alert, Alive Almost” or “4A...

Aherusia - Prometheus: Seven Principles on How to Be Invincible

Aherusia is a Grecian music collective that was started prior to the turn of the millennium as a project that revolved around their frontman/singer/guitarist (sometimes even bassist) Voreas Faethon. They didn’t properly “debut” until ten years later, with their 2009 “And the Tides Shall Reveal the Traces” opus, which was produced by...

Kepler Ten - Delta-v

Kepler Ten is a new band from the UK, which was formed in 2014 and likes to blend various music styles together. “Delta-v” is their debut release and the fact that the album is very mature, well-crafted and complete is amazing. I’d bet that this band has been around for a decade or so, but ya never know huh?!   The driving forces behind...

Pain Of Salvation - In the Passing Light of Day

“I was born in this building, it was the first Tuesday I had ever seen – and if I live to see tomorrow, it will be my Tuesday number: 2119”…   You open the door. Hesitantly. Darkness frantically hits you in the face. Abruptness grasps you from the neck. Roughness rushes your skin, you feel trapped, but you like it. A smile ditches...

This Winter Machine - The Man Who Never Was

This Winter Machine is a new band from the UK that was formed less than a year ago. The band consists of musicians that have shared the stages with great acts/artists such as Marillion, Uriah Heep, Uli Roth and so on. This is the first time these guys got together and they decided to form a prog rock band.   With such a variety & full musical background...

Fatal Fusion - Total Absence

I remember that I enjoyed the band’s second album, “The Ancient Tale”, which was released in 2013. I was looking forward to the Norwegian progsters’ new studio album. Their (70s) prog rock music that has many jazz/rock, jazz/fusion, atmospheric rock, blues-rock, hard rock, classical rock, space rock, psychedelic & symphonic prog elements...

Mercury Rust - Mercury Rust

I do not think that there’s any rock/metal fan out there that does not fancy and respect bands like Rainbow, Deep Purple, Dio, Whitesnake and so on. Even though there are not many bands that follow that music legacy, at least successfully out there, every so often a newcomer appears that pays its respects to that rock heritage and follows the music path of...

Thunder And Lightning - The Ages Will Turn

Thunder And Lightning are back after 3 years since their previous album with their brand new release “The Ages Will Turn”. For those who are not aware of the band, I should say that Thunder And Lightning is a heavy metal band from Berlin, which was formed in 2004 and this is their fifth full-length release.   It’s true that when I came...

Tyketto - Reach

I had the good fortune to witness Tyketto a few times by now and they’ve always been quite good, no matter the circumstances. Like when I saw them this Summer, under the hot burning sun in Barcelona, they still rocked the place, despite turning Red like lobsters and were in great spirits afterwards, when meeting the fans, in a way that can only be genuine and...
