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…

2black – No Time To Die Promo Review

Truth be told there’s not much 2BLACK need to work on here, a couple of tracks may have benefitted from being twenty seconds or so shorter and the vocals could use some slight changing up occasionally, but overall NO TIME TO DIE is as good a resume as any modern day Thrash Metal band could wish for..

Tyrant Eyes – The Sound Of Persistence Review

TYRANT EYES have found a middle ground between modern American Power Metal and the more traditional eighties metal sound, which actually gives them a bit of an early nineties power metal sound reminiscent of early ICED EARTH and GRAVE DIGGER. There is a draw-back though…

Powerstorm – Act I Review

Kostas’ style is a sort of hybrid of Power Metal and Traditional Metal with a strong emphasis on sweeping guitar solos and epic multi-layered vocal choruses. Kostas Greek accent also gives some of the slower patches a real Gothic Rock feel too which adds some mystery to the album. ..

Soul River Dogs – Soul River Dogs Review

SOUL RIVER DOGS display a more streamlined version of the typical Southern Rock formula by holding on to its influence throughout the disc, but never fully succumbing to it either.

Sonic Prophecy – A Divine Act Of War Review

I hate to sound so typical here, but after spending several listen-throughs with A DIVINE ACT OF WAR, the self-released debut album from Power Metal act SONIC PROPHECY, ‘potential’ is the best word I can think of to describe my overall feelings.

Grown Below – The Long Now Review

With their dedicated combination of modern Post Rock and Gloomy Sludge Metal, and also their penchant for long drawn-out songs, GROWN BELOW isn’t a band best recommended to the casual listener.

Red Remedy – Oblivion Review

RED REMEDY have an interesting sound that takes its cues from a mixture of modern radio rock and some late nineties/early 2000’s alternative rock and metal a la bands like INCUBUS, SEVENDUST and fellow hometown heroes GRINSPOON. But where the sound really flourishes is with the addition of a heavy layer of melodic rock sensibility and a real no-jokes underlying groove.//
