Stryper – Even The Devil Believes Review

Experimental. Technical. Heavy. Perfect. Those are 4 adjectives that I’d use to describe this album. It was not what I was expecting. I was expecting a musical followup to God Damn Evil. Instead, I got a lesson in what amazing guitar playing and singing sounds like. All 4 members stepped up their game. They are now on a higher level than they’ve ever been, and I’m blown away. I’d compare my reaction to Even the Devil Believes to my reaction to Judas Priest the first time I heard Painkiller. Stunned, Shocked, maybe even a little intimidated but in a good way. 5 of 5 stars from me. Get this album. Now!

WarKings – Revenge Review

When I first heard Reborn, I thought it was a fun album, but that WarKings had the potential to step up their game a bit further, and create a more memorable album. With Revenge, that’s exactly what’s happened, as while it’s stylistically a very similar album to the band’s debut, the performances and songwriting seem to be just a cut better, with an extra layer of energy and intensity. Fans of the band’s debut should love this, and anyone looking for a fun heavy/power metal album with a mix of intense riffs, great melodies, awesome vocals, and catchy choruses, would be highly recommended to give this a listen.

Ensiferum – Thalassic Review

The band has unleashed their 8th full-length release, Thalassic, and unsurprisingly, I’d be more than willing to say a word using the last six letters of that title, with a C in front, to describe this release!

Emmure – Hindsight review

‘Hindsight’ feels like a tribute to all those artists that have influenced the Emmure sound.  If you mixed up the best moments of Korn, Limp Bizkit and Slipknot with a dash of System Of A Down then you arrive at Emmure’s ‘Hindsight’.

Wicked Smile – Delirium EP Review

Wicked Smile’s Delirium EP is hopefully just a small taste of what they have ahead for them. I’m looking forward to a full release (the sooner the better.) The duo has already started generating some good words in the music world, which is a testament to the quality of the music contained here. Wicked Smile certainly has some tremendous potential, so here’s hoping they can maintain this level of awesome moving forward!
