‘The Monster Roars’ is an album that can be described as Magnum roars. As all the other Magnum releases also the newest addition to the creative output is full of anthemic moments, great melodies, musical savvy, and a lot of feel for sound and expression of songs. This album is a treat for ears and mind and showcases a band that, even after four decades in business, is still relevant and a great example for continuity, passion and dedication.
H.e.a.t are back on track – even more than that. With this album, they have outdone themselves. It has great songwriting, a galore of catchy melodies, a kick-ass sound and most of all it is fun as hell to listen to this record. People who are into this kind of music – don’t look any further – H.e.a.t are the perfect choice for you. It is March and with “II” we have the first album of the year contender.
Eclipse blossoms out over the last years and became a strong player in the fields of Melodic Metal. The newest album will help them to strengthen their position, a record that is entertaining and just great to listen to.
Fewer bands have been able to turn a reunion into a rebirth better than Treat. Though the ultimate success still eludes them (and who knows why) they continue to release some incredibly catchy music that deserves to be adored by the masses
The current New Wave of Melodic Hard Rock bands has really kicked it up a notch. Groups like H.E.A.T., W.E.T., Station, and so many others have taken this genre and reinvigorated it not only with a shot of youthful approach…
What’s immediately recognizable with the new album is an extra portion of heaviness that’s added to this album. Not that Sunstorm turned into a harsh metal outlet, but guitars, done by DGM guitarist Simone Mularoni, got more space.
How fast time passes by – it feels like yesterday when singer Mark Fox rejoined the Swiss Hard Rockers of Shakra.
There were a lot …. and I mean a LOT of moments when this record reminded me at Eclipse, H.e.a.t or One Desire, because melodies and arrangements are often similar to these bands
One Desire, with their s/t debut, shows a maturity and keen sense of melody right out of the gate
