Hollow Haze – Countdown to Revenge Review

So ‘Countdown To Revenge’ is a solid work, the band slightly changes their music, it becomes less heavy but more symphonic, driven and melodic. This album should be recommended not only to all fans of Fabio Lione and Rhapsody of Fire but for those who like good mix of Progressive, Power and Symphonic Metal.

Amaze Knight – The Key Review

Any flaws to this record are very hard to point out, because everything is perfect. Perhaps a bit more originality is needed or more up-tempo parts (because I personally like fast music). So it could be considered as almost flawless work. “The Key” is fantastic awesome album. It is extraordinary when some unknown young musicians show such very high level on their debut CD. Definitely it is one of the best debut works I’ve ever heard.

Profusion – Rewotower Review

Profusion, an Italian band whose name is a combination of the words “progressive” and “fusion”, have done some very interesting things with their second release, “Rewotower”, and have delivered an extremely satisfying, sometimes surprising progressive rock album, with more than its share of twists.

Essenza – Devil’s Breath Review

Musically it’s an interesting mix of say DIO and JUDAS PRIEST all mixed in with a slight touch of Thrash Metal, which does make for something that sounds a little bit unique in certain songs. The high-point for me personally on DEVIL’S BREATH would have to be the interesting lead guitar work…

Soul Seller – Back to Life Review

A guest vocal duet appears courtesy of Oliver Hartmann on the song “Keep on Moving” and it leads to a more heartbeat pacer which steams with 80’s vibes all over.

Voodoo Highway – Broken Uncle’s Inn

After that opening song is freaking vertigo waiting to happen, couldn’t not really sink into the I don’t give a crap attitude of “J C Superfuck”, the band’s next stumble into “Window” which is one of the weak moments on here, the vocal harmonization is not that great and it sounds off beat a bit.

Lionville – Lionville

So far is early for the genre in terms of outstanding releases with projects like the new Toby Hitchcock, and the Bobby Kimball/Jimi Jamison looming in the works. I say the top albums so far this year have been the Elevener and Bad Habit records. Let’s recap here what’s in store boys and girls..shall we?
