Band statement:

Screamer - Highway of Heroes

These Swedes are celebrating a decade of existence this year, by releasing their fifth outing. Sounding like a less refined version of Enforcer and Ambush, they have a penchant for writing that straightforward, samey, simplistic metal that’s easy to enjoy, but hard to appreciate for more than the cheap thrill it is. The main issue other than the somewhat flat songs, is Andreas Wikström, the singer, who is not terrible, but is a far cry from being great.

Angel Witch launches music video for new single “Death from Andromeda”

In the wake of their brand new album, “Angel of Light” - already being described by some as the band's finest work since the legendary debut - Angel Witch are proud to present their first bona fide music video since their eponymous single nearly forty years ago: the incendiary and extraterrestrial-themed “Death from Andromeda”. Watch the video, below.

Millennium - A New World

Millennium made quite a name for themselves, on the strength of an eponymous 1984 album, which has achieved cult status, among fans, with it pleasurable, if not unspectacular traditional NWOBHM styling. They broke up a few years later after a series of demos (that No Remorse Records GR later compiled and released) and the band was resurrected in 2016, largely by the singer Mark Duffy, with a new line up around him.
 

RAM - The Throne Within

I found all the media frenzy around Ram’s previous album to be largely unfounded as their poor man’s monotonous take on Judas Priest’s brand of heavy metal, crossed with a little bit of how bands like Wolf and early Enforcer tend to interpret that very sound, hasn’t been much refined in two decades since the band’s conception.
 
Without being truly bad, Ram’s style is too basic, repetitive and lacks both the flair, as well as variety that made other bands beacons of the genre.
 

Angel Witch launches second single “Condemned”

On November 1st, 2019, Angel Witch will release their fifth full-length, “Angel of Light”, via Metal Blade Records. Angel Witch’s 1980 eponymous debut on Bronze records created shockwaves that would resonate throughout the nascent realm of thrash, doom and death metal. Now, nearly four decades later, the band remain custodians of a style that transcends era and archetype.

For a preview of their upcoming record, “Angel of Light”, the second single, “Condemned”, can now be heard below.
