Huntress – Spell Eater Review

HUNTRESS have accomplished something a little special here with SPELL EATER, and I think in all fairness they have the right sound to escape the ‘female-fronted metal’ tag…

Cyanide Scream – Unfinished Business Review

Steve Cone has been writing music in this style for a long time now and it’s clear that he knows what he is doing, the vocals have all of this cool little touches you would expect from a release with such an eighties background…

Unity – Reborn Review

and while I still feel Donoso has much to learn there has definitely been an improvement in his singing capabilities.

Elvenpath – Elvenpath

That just about sums up perfectly what’s going on here. While there are some NWOBHM ideals and a smidge of power metal, the best way to describe this album is simply ‘EAVY BLOODY METAL!…
