Lacuna Coil - Broken Crown Halo

Even though they announced that with this album they introduce a “new order”, if I can recall well, all we got was one of the same in the end. They have a specific songwriting formula they use the last few years, so I do not believe that anyone would expect any kind of surprises or new things. They said that this album has been influenced by the old...

Dawn - Darker

It may have taken them 7 years to come up with the second full-length album but these Swiss guys do know exactly what they are up to. Having a limitless adoration for the 70s era and for bands such as: Genesis, Yes, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, Kansas, Gentle Giant, ELP, Camel, etc., Dawn can be placed on the neo-retro or neo-vintage (if there’s...

A.C.T

Hi Ola. Welcome back to music industry dude. “Circus Pandemonium” is a delightful album indeed! Kudos!   O: Yeah, thanks! We are extremely proud it!     So, tell us… why did you take such a long break after the astonishing “Silence” in 2006? One would believe that “Silence” could have been the ticket...

Brimstone - Mannsverk

Well, there’s a paradox with this album and the band’s name. The band’s actual name, since their beginning in the late 90s, used to be The Brimstone Solar Radiation Band, till today. Suddenly the band’s members decided to change it on their 4th full-length album. Long weird names do not work the same way they used to back in the day and...

A.C.T - Circus Pandemonium

Just when I gave up hope on A.C.T, they appeared as weirdly & suddenly as they had disappeared. I thought that “Silence” (read the review here), would have been the band’s passport to be among the top progressive, theatrical, operatic rock/metal acts of our time… but obviously something went wrong and we lost track of them for about 8...

Subliritum - Downfall

Returning, after 3 years, continuing the legacy of “A Touch of Death’, Subliritum are still offering that amalgam, of modern, melodic, technical, epic, brutal, thrash/death, black metal.   Certainly, Vegar “Vyl” Larsen’s participation (Headspin, Keep of Kalessin, ex-Aptorian Demon, ex-Goat the Head etc.) on drums is another...
