Accept - The Rise of Chaos

Accept, unfortunately since their reunion without Udo, have been on a decline turning into a hollow shadow of their former selves. Despite the relative euphoria that “Blood of Nations” caused being the first time something was heard from a band that was presumed to be dead and buried and relatively solid live performances, the albums that followed were...

Vescera - Beyond the Fight

Michael Vescera needs little introduction, as he made quite a name for himself with Obsession in the 80s, later joining Jap Metal Legends Loudness for two rather good albums and Yngwie Malmsteen for another two, just when the wheel started coming off, for the Swedish virtuoso. He’s, since then, sung in numerous albums, either as a hired vocalist, or forming...

Night Demon - Darkness Remains

This Californian three-piece seems to have gotten disproportionately more coverage than other ones and despite being good at the old school metal they attempt, I believe it might have to do with the fact that they have been able to get quite a few booking on the back of Cirith Ungol in which their singer/bassist Jarvis Leatherby doubles as the new bassist for their...

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...
