Gus G - Brand New Revolution

Gus G. – Brand New Revolution (2015) Review

With no new Firewind release and no new Ozzy Osbourne on the horizon, Gus G. released third solo album and second one to be reviewed here. Since first one got pretty low score I was afraid what I will find here. Luckily, my fears were only partially justified as this album features much more guitar shredding…

Bon Jovi - Burning Bridges

Bon Jovi – Burning Bridges (2015) Review

Burning Bridges is 13th studio release by widely known and super popular rock act Bon Jovi. First album since the departure of Richie Sambora is often cited as a “fan album”, whatever the hell that means. Point is, Burning Bridges is put together by old, unused tracks from past few decades, but in general doesn’t stray…

Powerwolf - Blessed & Possessed

Powerwolf – Blessed & Possessed (2015) Review

Ahhh, Powerwolf. German power metal maniacs with scary looks and hilarious lyrics are back once more for your blood, guts speakers and soul. Common sense you can leave for yourself because you don’t need that to enjoy Blessed & Possessed. Like a clockwork, two years after Preachers Of The Night comes yet another ridiculous metal…

Helloween - My God-Given Right

Helloween – My God-Given Right (2015) Review

Helloween is one of the creators of power metal and true example of genre defining act. So, after 30+ years in service, numerous band members (Michael Weikath and Markus Grosskopf being two original members), shitload of albums and plenty of ups and downs… do they still have anything important to say? They just might have…

Cains Offering - Stormcrow

Cain’s Offering – Stormcrow (2015) Review

Cain’s Offering is one hell of a band if you consider people that are in it. Naturally, this only works as intended in some other parallel universe, little less fucked up than this one. But, we are where we are and Cain’s Offering is just another super group consisting of some powerful names and just…

Virgin Steele - Nocturnes

Virgin Steele – Nocturnes Of Hellfire & Damnation (2015) Review

Virgin Steele is one old piece of metal with over 30 years in the business and it should be well known name among metal population. That is not 100% true because for some reason they never enjoyed popularity and acclaim they rightfully deserved with several fantastic albums, The Marriage Of Heaven And Hell and House Of…

Avi Rosenfeld - In The Sky

Free Album: Avi Rosenfeld – In The Sky (2015)

Hello, folks! Want some freebies? Why the hell not, you say. So here you are, free rock record from Tel Aviv, released earlier this year and way overdue on my behalf. What kind of rock is this, you might say… something like Europe, Joe Satriani or equally free The Sunpilots? The answer is – none of…

Joe Satriani - Shockwave Supernova

Joe Satriani – Shockwave Supernova (2015) Review

One of the most anticipated albums this summer, from one of the most influential and frequently mentioned guitarists, Joe Satriani, finally saw the light of day. Shockwave Supernova adds yet another weird album title in a series. It’s the 15th anniversary release by unstoppable guitar virtuoso, which is equated with the number of his Grammy…

Europe - War Of Kings

Europe – War Of Kings (2015) Review

Europe, well know rock act from the 80s which made it to fame with all time classic “The Final Countdown” is still rocking strong good 30 years later. And believe me when I tell you that they are better than ever! From Bag Of Bones, nice piece of blues rock from 2012, to War Of Kings…

Blind Guardian - Beyond The Red Mirror

Blind Guardian – Beyond The Red Mirror (2015) Review

Blind Guardian, band with a special place in my heart, a band that gave me many, many ear pleasing moments in my career as a metalhead. Their nineties era spawned one of the best moments in power metal history, but in the new millennium I got kinda bored and BG fell behind in favor of some…
