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…

Battle Beast - Unholy Savior

Battle Beast – Unholy Savior (2015) Review

Female fronted power metal act known as Battle Beast is back with new record, two years after nicely done self-titled release and needless to say that my expectations were high as fuck. Sure, you might think that this is yet another female fronted metal act trying to cash in on unexpected popularity of such bands and…

Allen Lande - The Great Divide

Allen – Lande – The Great Divide (2014) Review

Just when I thought that I’ve seen enough of Timo for one year (last year to be exact, this review is a bit late), there he is again with new record. Another “super-group”, this time slightly older than usual. Russell Allen and Jorn Lande are the main stars, which makes sense since they are vocalists,…

Billy Idol - Kings

Billy Idol – Kings & Queens Of The Underground (2014) Review

Billy Idol, yelling rebel from the eighties is well known to all folks that own a TV and / or radio and aren’t braindead / deaf. With immortal hits like “Rebel Yell” and “Dancing With Myself” among others, he secured his eternal glory in the eyes of each rocker in need of good r’n’r. But,…

Liv Kristine - Vervain

Liv Kristine – Vervain (2014) Review

Damn those solo albums and their pointless existence! Either they are total piece of crap or they are so boring that no one gives a crap about them while only small percentage of them actually counts for something. Vervain will not change the big picture here simply because it’s flat, generic and boring piece of…

Sequester - Missing Image

Sequester – Missing Image (2014) Review

During my years of listener’s career I bumped into a whole bunch of 1-man bands and some general rule I took as a fact is that they are rarely good. Simply, it’s too much work for a one man and they don’t say in vain that two heads are better than one. How much can…

In Flames - Siren Charms

In Flames – Siren Charms (2014) Review

Few bands in the world today are causing this much controversy with recent releases like In Flames does. A name that had a significant weight and helped create a whole sub-genre in death metal, now it has become a synonym for poor and worn out band, a band that has not released a decent album for…

Amaranthe - Massive Addictive

Amaranthe – Massive Addictive (2014) Review

In the last few years massively popular Amaranthe launched a new massively addictive album – Massive Addictive. I’m not sure whether it is a progress in coming up with original album name or not (the last one was ultra-original Nexus), but certain progress in sound quality is made, at least in my head. The style…

Cyrax - Reflections

Cyrax – Reflections (2013) Review

Here’s something strange, and naturally it comes from Italy :). So strange that I do not even know what to write, just when I think of the immense quantity of different styles and elements that these progressive dudes threw into their first album, Reflections. Blues, heavy, symphonic, heavy symphonic, progressive blues with moments of electronics and…

Risen To Reclaim - Paradox

Risen To Reclaim – Paradox (2014) Review

Here it is… for the first time since the founding of this site, a Croatian band has requested a review. Of course, there was no doubt about whether we would agree or not, so here we present to you Paradox, the second album from Risen To Reclaim, a heavy metal band stationed in Rijeka. So what can…
