Cozy Powell

Especially when he co-operated with heavy bands, his performance resembled a mixture of a road-roller and a track full of rubble crashing onto a wall.

Manowar - Kings of Metal MMXIV

Manowar return to the “scene of the crime”, with another “un-necessary” release and lesser re-release of a classic album from their back catalog that they decided to re-record in its entirety. After “Battle Hymns”, that was pretty mediocre, this time the “victim” is “Kings of Metal”... Still one of the...

Grand Magus - Triumph and Power

I remember wondering while reviewing their previous album “The Hunt”, if anyone would expect any kind of musical change on behalf of the band. I guess that flirting with the Vikings couldn’t have ended up in any other way. Grand Magus have made an opening to more classic metal paths here. Even the Viking or epic ones have to admit it!  ...
