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…

Hammerfall - Revolution

HammerFall – (r)Evolution (2014) Review

HammerFall, a band that evokes so many beautiful memories for many metalheads. The memory of the legendary power metal albums that were an inspiration to many bands, memories that are somewhat polluted with the last couple of albums that were anything but inspiring. Infamous attempt to shift from the old sound (not really) and subsequent failure by…

This will be a brief review for more than one reason, one of them being overall exposure of the band, so I will briefly tell you everything there is to say about new effort from this British speed / power metallers. Maximum Overload does not deviate much from the proven formula of its predecessors, mix…

Steel Panther - All You Can Eat

Steel Panther – All You Can Eat (2014) Review

18+ I am sitting at work, turning on music to make time go faster, Anathema efficiently kills boredom with its slow melodies (believe it or not), all is good and fine. After that I put All You Can Eat album, the fourth album by glam metal /hard rock mock band Steel Panther and I am…

Unisonic - Light Of Dawn

Unisonic – Light Of Dawn (2014) Review

Aaaah, those “supergroups”. Even the term is stupid, and the real tragedy is that product itself is mostly overblown and pretty much lame. Unisonic is one of those “supergroups” and what made me listen to it is Michael Kiske himself. If you don’t know who is he, you should revise history of power metal and…

Judas Priest - Redeemer Of Souls

Judas Priest – Redeemer Of Souls (2014) Review

Whether or not they should go to a fully deserved retirement, that’s the issue under discussion for some time, at least since Nostradamus album, if not longer. The only conclusion that has so far emerged from these discussions is that there is no conclusion. Some argue that these heavy metal legends are not for scrap,…
