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.
This is an exciting album, a perfect adrenaline piece of old school thrash metal…
Orion’s Reign has not only lived up to my expectations, but they have also completely shattered them, and have produced the best symphonic power metal album of the year…
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.
‘Repeated Exposure To… ‘ is an excellent album with great flow to it. This should be a part of everyone’s road trip collection.
Is there ever such a thing as too many melodic progressive metal bands in the world…?
Wild Rose just released their Promo Video Sampler for their upcoming album “4”.
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.
I was really amazed at the quality of the musicianship and song structure and I am happy for the guys to finally receive a record release through Retrospect Records. For any fans of the genre you have to check them out as you will be pleasantly surprised, even more for the amount of limited music in the AOR/Melodic Rock genre to come out Greece.
