Suidakra – Eternal Defiance Review

Going in not being overly familiar with their work beyond a handful of songs, I walk away from Suidakra’s new album Eternal Defiance with an increased interest in them, and a better feeling of the folk metal style. Though I may never become a rabid fan of the sound, I can see me checking out more acts, as well as the other work from Suidakra. Fans of the band shouldn’t be disappointed with this release.

Exclusive Interview with Udo Dirkschneider (Vocals) (UDO, Accept)

Of course I have certainly been asked.Unfortunately Wolf is telling everybody that he has never been in touch with me, though I can show you tons of e.mails. I have been asked about rejoining for a reunion and didn’t directly say no.I did it already once and there was a lot of shit happened. I then said “OK guys if I do this then I want to have this and this..Wolf then said that he didn’t want to do it, so I said “Goodbye, thank you very much and good luck

D-A-D – Dic.Nii.Lan.Daft.Erd.Ark (DeLuxe Edition) Review

The deluxe edition offers another 16 songs that would cater more to the die-hard D-A-D fans. Five tracks are acoustic versions of songs from the new album. The other eleven are live that not only pull from the new album but past numbers as well. Highlighted by rousing renditions of “Jihad” and “Monster Philosophy”, the new material sounds even more powerful live, especially “Last Time In Neverland” and “The New Age Moving In”.

Shakra, Maxxwell Concert Review

With their new album “Powerplay”, Shakra reached number one of the Swiss album charts. With this successful record in baggage, the band hits the road to rock the stages in Germany, Switzerland, France, Netherlands and Austria. The “Powerplay-Tour” started on March 8th, 2013 in Berlin and I was there!

Voodoo Circle – More Than One Way Home Review

If you are a fan of blues oriented classic hard rock then you can have a look at “More Than One Way Home”. You’ll find some pretty good rockin’ tunes on here. However I dislike the lack of own creativity. If you can overlook the fact that this band sounds exactly like another big one, then you can add one point more to the score. Solid classic rock!

Shakra – Back On Track

he band decided to replace Fox with the more darker and graspier vocals of John Prakesh and to be honest, they did a fine job in their choice. This dude fits the more metal style of the band with conviction.

Debauchery – Germany’s Next Death Metal

For those that are yet to hear the band I guess the best way describe them is they play dirty bar band rock ‘n’ roll music that draws its inspiration from MOTORHEAD, KROKUS and AC/DC, but then layered on top of that is a large amount of old-school styled death metal vocals and the occasional banshee-like wail…

Eden’s Curse – Trinity

Now we have the band’s third release in “Trinity” and some welcoming new things pop in place here and one is undoubtedly the voice of James Labrie (Dream Theater) vocalist and guest Helloween singer Andi Deris on “Black Widow”. Labrie doesn’t just guest on one track, he lends backing vocals on the entire CD
