Virgin Steele - Nocturnes of Hellfire and Damnation

Virgin Steele returns after a number of years in the “wilderness”, five to be precise, after the pompous, but ultimately somewhat failed “Black Light Bacchanalia” that didn’t seem to garner either the critics or the fans acclaim and appreciation. “Nocturnes...” which was delayed and even retitled as its original name was to...

Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody - Prometheus, Symphonia Ignis Divinus

Luca Turrili, is a nice guy, generally speaking and back when he came out with the original Rhapsody albums, he managed to really capture the public’s imagination with his very melodic and annunciated epic power metal, that featured tons of ornamentations and followed a very neoclassical train of thought.   With each consequent year and album, the band...

Ancient Rites - Laguz

That was a “dive into the past”! I admit that Ancient Rites have been under my radar for more than 15 years. As I see they also released their previous album in 2006. Now after 9 whole years they’re back with a new album. But what happened to that up-and-coming band which started on the early 90s? Did they finally fulfill all those high...
