Vescera - Beyond the Fight

Michael Vescera needs little introduction, as he made quite a name for himself with Obsession in the 80s, later joining Jap Metal Legends Loudness for two rather good albums and Yngwie Malmsteen for another two, just when the wheel started coming off, for the Swedish virtuoso. He’s, since then, sung in numerous albums, either as a hired vocalist, or forming...

Night Demon - Darkness Remains

This Californian three-piece seems to have gotten disproportionately more coverage than other ones and despite being good at the old school metal they attempt, I believe it might have to do with the fact that they have been able to get quite a few booking on the back of Cirith Ungol in which their singer/bassist Jarvis Leatherby doubles as the new bassist for their...

Wizard - Fallen Kings

Defiantly, pounding away metal for nearly thirty years, with few lineup changes in all that time, Wizard have been a German metal force to be reckoned with and one of the few that wouldn’t cause uncontrollable laughter as most of their out of tune “epic” counterparts that must have really lit a thousand candles since they “discovered”...
