Treat - Ghost of Graceland

Treat is a band that has been out there toiling hard almost as long as Europe has, but fell victim to the worldwide charting success of their compatriots, never quite being able to get the recognition they so richly deserved being every bit as good if not better than them, but nowhere near as popular outside their native Sweden.   Reuniting in 2006 the band...

A Perfect Day - The Deafening Silence

A Perfect Day is an Italian quartet that plays hard rock inspired metal, with a heavily progressive slant and a rather modern sound that runs parallels with latter day Fates Warning (pun intended) among other things. Formed in 2011 as the brain-child of Andrea Cantarelli, guitarist and co-founder of Italian heavy metal band Labyrinth, it also features drummer...

Warme is a British rock band that has been going on since 2003. The band has given various live gigs in UK, Europe & the US, and it has also released several singles along the way. This is their debut album so the phrase “better late than ever” couldn’t be more appropriate in this case.   As you have understood, these guys mean business...

Coda - Coda

It’s a little weird that this band that consists of seasoned players, like Paul Sabu (Only Child, Sabu), Vince O’Regan (Legion, Bob Catley, Al Atkins) on lead guitar, Eric Ragno (The Babys) on keys, EJ Curse (Silent Rage, Gilby Clarke) on bass and Andy Pierce (Legion) on drums, would end up signing with a company as infamous as Z Records that have been...

Desert Dragon - Before the Storm

I feel kinda confused regarding this album. Although it has various wonderful tracks, it mixes several music styles together and the final outcome is not as cohesive as it should be. I mean it’s OK to be influenced by other music kinds but having tracks that are not musically close to the band’s sound is not so.   Desert Dragon is a US based band...
