Astral Doors – Jerusalem Review

Of course as usual there will be the people writing ASTRAL DOORS as nothing more than a DIO clone, but think about it for a second…..now that the god himself has left our realm who better than to take the baton and continue the tradition, well it’s either these guys or JORN I guess…

Stargazery – Eye On The Sky

So I must say it’s very refreshing to be able to consider this album as pure and simple good old HEAVY METAL. Sure, there are some power metal and melodic metal elements here, but both of those genres stemmed from traditional metal anyway. For comparisons look no further than DIO, ASTRAL DOORS and Tony Martin era BLACK SABBATH…

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.

Wuthering Heights – Salt

For those unfamiliar with Wuthering Heights, they are a Danish Folk Power Metal band lead by the charismatic Nils Patrik Johansson also leading front man for Astral Doors. This super group per say has been around since 1989 but did not release a studio album till 2002’s “To Travel For Evermore” later followed by the critically acclaimed “Far From The Madding Crowd”.
