Shadowblade – Frozen Serenity

Where the album succeeds is in its ability to constantly offer up some interesting changes that really keep the flow going without any stagnation whatsoever…

Red Rose – Live The Life You’ve Imagined

The style that the band features is melodic metal in the European vein. The band itself is very new they started only last year and as we speak are currently looking for a big label deal. The group has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Ripper Owens and Sabaton as well.

Heavenfall – 7 Sins

This often over-indulgence of keyboard does work well in places and really adds a cinematic and melodic wall of sound to songs that may otherwise just sound like standard power metal fare, but at times it can feel a little like overkill and makes the product as a whole seem a little too electronic to be a natural metal album…

Illuminatus – Glasnost

One of the best written release of the early year as I felt like I was listening to a soundtrack to one’s own emotional journey of self revelation and realization of the world “out there”. Is obvious these guys make music with intend to strike a strong emotion in each song, you add the war machine heavy guitar arrangement and the ferocious vocals of Taylor and you have quite a combination.
