Appice - Sinister

Well, the brothers Appice, Carmine and Vinnie are well known in the rock community. The former drummed for Vanilla Fudge, Rod Stewart, Ozzy Osbourne and you might remember his own band King Kobra from the 80s. The latter didn’t do bad either with his Black Sabbath, Dio and other credits to his name. In “Sinister” the brothers collaborate and what...

Pänzer - Fatal Command

I found Panzer’s debut, “Send Them All to Hell” hopelessly banal, as in fact I have found most of the Tornillo fronted Accept material and Destruction’s material from the past decade. Panzer seemed to be a way for two of the guys that were dismissed from Accept, to get on a high profile band with another “Nuclear Blast” alumnus,...

Argus - From Fields of Fire

Not to be confused with other bands with the same name, this American quintet return some four years after the rather respectable “Beyond the Martyrs” with their fourth album. Having been around for a dozen years, they haven’t had any serious missteps and have kept the quality control of their releases rather high.   Things are no different...

Portrait - Burn the World

Metal Blade might have relied mostly on extreme metal and new-sound bands in the past few years, but they still know how to pick some fairly decent classic metal bands, when it comes to it. Sweden’s Portrait have been around for about a dozen years… they’ve released four albums (this one included) and they do subscribe to the occult style of...

Jag Panzer - The Deviant Chord

Jag Panzer is one of my favorite bands even when it comes to heavy metal; a band that always featured incredible vocal and guitar talent. As one who really enjoyed “The Scourge of the Light”, I was really anxious to see what the Americans would bring to the table some six years after that album and some tumultuous times, where singer Harry Conklin could...
