White Skull - Will of the Strong

I must give it up to a band like White Skull, who have been going on for almost three decades now and have produced some ten or so albums, with their quality and style remaining quite consistent, despite the change of vocalists a couple of times, with even a male singer handling the vocals on a few (I think three albums) of their albums, which were traditionally...

Age Of Disclosure - To the Universe

Age Of Disclosure is a Swiss band that in full force is either an octet or is just meant to be a studio project for the time being completed by no less than 4 different vocalists who bring to life Ben Sollbergers (one of two guitarist), while they also feature a couple of former Emerald (Swiss) members. Their style is heavy metal with some lyrical tendencies and a...

Order Ogan - Gunmen

It’s funny how sticking to your gun for 20 years during which you release six albums with “little” fanfare, can turn you “big” by relative terms.   Order Ogan is a second if not third rate Blind Guardian clone, with lots of orchestrations and very simple song structures that relies more on layered choruses and production than...

Mean Streak - Blind Faith

Mean Streak is a Swedish quintet, featuring a couple of Axia (the melodic rockers) and Night Flight Opera members, not to be confused with the girl band that provided wife material for Dream Theater or other ones that shared the moniker neither the Y&T album of the same name. They’ve been around for more than a decade now and this is their fourth album so...

Anubis Gate to release new studio album “Covered in Black” on September 1st 2017

Anubis Gate's seventh album “Covered in Black” will be released to the world on Nightmare Records on September 1st, 2017. With six highly acclaimed albums, what can be said about a seventh album? It would be easy to say the following: “It is our most mature album. Or how about this: We built on everything that came before it and added new...

Wizard - Fallen Kings

Defiantly, pounding away metal for nearly thirty years, with few lineup changes in all that time, Wizard have been a German metal force to be reckoned with and one of the few that wouldn’t cause uncontrollable laughter as most of their out of tune “epic” counterparts that must have really lit a thousand candles since they “discovered”...

Metal Church live in Athens 2017

So, like real troopers of metal, the guys graced again the Greek stages, first in Salonica and then in Athens, with people heeding their gospel, not as massively as one would have hoped, but on the other hand, any Summer non weekend show runs that danger, I think.   Solitary Sabred opened the show a little later than eight, but I only managed to witness...
