Forefather – Last Of The Line Review

As this album was originally released back in December of 2011, I’m a little bit late with this one, but stay with me folks as it’s definitely worth going back a little bit, just in case you missed out on this gem…

Cyanide Scream – Unfinished Business Review

Steve Cone has been writing music in this style for a long time now and it’s clear that he knows what he is doing, the vocals have all of this cool little touches you would expect from a release with such an eighties background…

Kabuki – Kabuki Review

KABUKI the band began life as a full make-up KISS tribute act, and apparently they were pretty good at what they did. After a while the desire to create original music music drove the band to delve a little deeper while still wearing their influences right on their sleeves…

Degradation – Juggernaut

This record is decidedly old-school in every way and there’s not one single hint of modern Thrash here at all. DEGRADATION take a little bit of EXODUS, a touch of KREATOR…

Testor – Animal Killstinct Review

After more than twenty years of hiding, It seems like Poland’s best kept secret TESTOR are finally ready to take than next step and introduce themselves to the rest of the world.

Sonic Altar – No Sacrifice Review

SONIC ALTAR certainly did enough to impress me with this; their debut album NO SACRIFICE. The album sits somewhere in between traditional heavy/power metal and melodic hard rock, giving it a bit of an IRON MAIDEN meets LILLIAN AXE vibe…

Album Reviews

Magnetron – A Measured Timeframe Review

GOOD is probably a very suitable word for this release in all honesty. The band are geared mostly toward the typical sounds of late eighties Thrash Metal, but with a couple of really short songs and a couple of titles like ROB A BANK, BUY A TANK and FLASHING OF THE BRAIN there is clear Crossover vibe here too…

Album Reviews

Ashen Reign – An Angels Burden Review

Yes, Brent plays every instrument on the entire album including all vocals too. One advantage of doing things this way for the rare few that are skilled enough is that there’s nobody to get in the way of your vision of the sound you want to create, which gave Brent a blank canvas to shape in any way he saw fit.

Lorenguard – Eve Of Corruption : The Days Of Astasia – Part One Review

Listen up readers!… I think I just may well have discovered the best and most worthy for success unsigned band going around in today’s heavy metal scene. LORENGUARD may not yet be a household name, but if their near-perfect debut is anything to go by, this band should be flying along at the top of the food chain very soon…
