Septicflesh – Modern Primitive Review

From my earliest memories of music, I’ve been fascinated by how it has changed so much over the years. Despite one of my earliest favorite bands being one of the most innovative bands at the time, The Beatles, even they couldn’t have imagined the wild styles and sounds bands would be creating now (and little did I know that there was someone named Frank Zappa even more innovative than them at the time either.) The inclusion of Symphonic music in Metal isn’t a new thing, but I find it especially striking in Extreme Metal bands. One of the bands I find that does it expertly is Septicflesh.

Firewind – Firewind Review

It’s always a bit of a bold move when an already well-established brand, with a lengthy discography, decides to make a self-titled release, especially when such a release comes after a major lineup change. Needless to say, that’s exactly what’s happened with multi-national power metal band Firewind, a very well known, rather popular band within their field, who are now set to release a self-titled album as their ninth full-length release. After being quite impressed with their last album, Immortals, I was interested to see whether this new album would be as good as that one and after several listens, I am quite pleased to say it is indeed every bit as good, if not even better in spots.

If you’re looking for some straight up rock ‘n’ roll, look no further than the debut EP from Circus Train. They formed in 2012 in Athens, Greece, and these guys have put together a four-song EP that sounds great and rocks like hell.

W.A.N.T.E.D – Meat ‘n Greed Review

I went into this cd not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised by what I heard. The band took a serious approach to the songs and the musicianship is of high quality. Meat N Greed is a very strong effort and gets better with each subsequent listen. This is a 7 out of 10 cd. Buy it, you won’t be disappointed.
