The Unity - The Unity

The Unity is a band mainly taking all but one of the guitarists of Love.Might.Kill, a band that put out a couple of albums through Massacre Recs in the past few years and was a bit more modern and melodic, going for a more power metal sound with the inclusion of Gamma Ray and sometimes Avantasian, Henjo Richter.

Raw Silk - The Borders of Light

Raw Silk is a weird case. One of the few bands that came out in the AOR/HR genre from Greece and a really good one at them, possibly only held back by a rather weak production. The band debuted in 1990 with “Silk Under the Skin” to great local commercial acclaim and has through the years achieved a bit of a cult status on the strength of that release...

Sailing To Nowhere - Lost in Time

Sailing To Nowhere is an Italian sextet, on their second album, in the power metal genre, with slight prog tendencies. They were complete unknown to me previously, but even on their second attempt, I find plenty of issues with the sound, while they don’t sound bad musically if not a little lacking in the production department, the dual male/female vocals fail...

Sideburn - #Eight

These Swiss “Sideburn” guys should not be confused with a more buzzsaw, stoner band by the same name that is probably still active (with some five or so albums to their name).   In these guys case, think some eight albums, with the album title becoming pretty self-explanatory. Also think AC/DC and not Sabbath and their progeny… apparently...
