Random Eyes - Grieve No More

Peeking through the misty power metal veil in a most anodyne and banal fashion is Jyväskylä, Finland’s Random Eyes (or Randomize, whichever is more conducive) with its fourth full-length since its 1999 inception, “Grieve No More”, released earlier this year under Rock n’ Growl (purr?) records.

Random Eyes sign with Rock'N'Growl Records and announce new album “Grieve No More”

Finish metal band, Random Eyes, have signed with German label Rock'N'Growl Records.

Random Eyes' fourth album “Grieve No More”, includes 10 tracks and was produced, mixed and masteres by Christian Palin (Panorama, Magic Kingdom, ex-Adagio).

The clear strength of Random Eyes are the attacking vocals, paired with powerful sound and catchy melodies, backed by great guitar-work and grooving drums.

Random Eyes is most definitely a live band, with strong charisma and pure energy on the stage.

Enemy Remains - No Faith in Humanity

Enemy Within, Enemy Remains, Enemy Of Reality… seriously, where’s the love people? Why all this hate and polemic?!
 
Apparently, Enemy Remains is a band that was formed in 2005 by original Fates Warning drummer, Steve Zimmerman, and guitarist Tommy Blardo. They have released an album so far and done some local touring, but largely have not achieved to make any considerable mark in the international music scene and I hardly thing that their sophomore album “No Faith in Humanity” might take them a long way towards realizing their goal.
