Midnight - Sweet Death and Ecstasy

Sweet Jesus! Its colourfully ribald and chthonic cover art withstanding, Jameson Walters, a.k.a. Athenar’s solo black speed metal venture Midnight raucously plays out like an extension of his early Boulder days; in other words, the manic Ohioan jack-of-all-trades continues to “live it up” with similar romping camp and revved up, at times...

Marty Friedman - Wall of Sound

Somehow, I’m gonna say this… I’m somewhat relieved that what might have been a very short lived Megadeth reunion of their most famous line-up didn’t happen, because it would have probably meant that Friedman would have dedicated himself to that, rather than releasing music to his heart’s content…   I mean towards the end...

Anvil to release new studio album “Pounding the Pavement” on January 19th 2018

Of course there are bands that have garnered higher chart positions, sold more albums and filled bigger venues than Anvil. Yet there are few metal acts that have earned as much respect from their colleagues as the Canadian act surrounding vocalist/guitarist Steve “Lips” Kudlow and drummer Robb Reiner. The most renowned Anvil aficionados include, among...

Evil Invaders - Feed Me Violence

Evil Invaders have been around for quite a while now, actually about a decade having a couple of EPs and now a sophomore album to account for all these year plus a fair few live performances under their belt; their style reminiscent of the Canadian thrashers like Exciter and Razor (their name is but an album of the latter) but also Zetro era Exodus and also maybe...

Drakkar - Diabolical Empathy

This Drakkar, not to be confused with the more popular Italian power metallers, is a Belgium based combo that has existed since 1983, releasing an album at the tail end of that decade before going in hiatus for about a decade. They made a brief comeback in the late 90s that didn’t wield more than a demo and the latest effort was their reunion to re-release...
