Mirror – Mirror Review

Fates Warning – A Pleasant Shade of Gray Expanded Review

Fates Warning’s epic A Pleasant Shade of Gray is one of those albums that from the moment I heard it all the way through, and every listen subsequently (and that is numerous,) I loved deeply and immensely. So much about it connected with me on a far deeper level than music listener or fan: it touched my soul, and very few albums have managed to do that with me.

Denner/Shermann – Satan’s Tomb Review

When I was presented with this EP to review, I got a sense of excitement after reminiscing about the quality of work these two guitarists have covered in their career. Fans will remember them as the original guitarists of Mercyful Fate’s legendary “Melissa” and “Don’t Break The Oath” albums. Two albums that have gone on to inspire so many generations of guitarists whom are trying to keep the scene alive.
