Miss Behaviour – Last Woman Standing

and their vision was to have their own Rock band inspired by the great band of the Eighties while adding a fresh and modern twist to their sound” Obviously setting yourself apart from all the success the Scandinavian bands are having these days is not easy, but an early listen on “Last Woman Standing” I thing they pass the test.

Space Opera – Safe At Home

The trippy synthesizer effects of “Singers and Sailors” definitely experiments into the space and time but notable none the less. The more southern rock influenced classic rock ballad “Country Max” is one of the highlights of this compilation.

Tuck From Hell – Thrashing

“Tuckerz” is a cool band anthem which most mother-tuckerz would enjoy, as they call their devoted fans. Another plowing metallic drill comes your way in “I’m Rollin’, which carries some of your favorite thrash rhythm section abuse and batter that fans of the genre love so much.

Warmblood – Timor Mortis

The band have been around since 2002 and have slowly been building up a pretty decent fan base locally but now it’s time to try their push for an international audience, and what a good way to do it. WARMBLOOD base themselves fully in the old-school death metal style with deep, bellowing vocals, ear grinding guitars and blastbeats straight from the depths of hell itself…
