1. REALMBUILDER “Blue Flame Cavalry” (I Hate)
– Their best effort so far. Still weird and original, but also a bit easier to get into.
2. STONE DAGGER “Demo” (Self released)
– Epic metal with the singer from Magic Circle. Tape only, 7″ coming up!
3. SATAN’S HOST “Virgin Sails” (Moribund)
– With God on vocals you really can’t go wrong. A bit more diversity would’ve been nice though.
4. CRUSADER “Onwards Into Battle” (Stormspell)
– Wasn’t too impressed at first, but this one has grown on me. More than decent trad. metal. Cool, rough vocals, a bit like King Fowley at times.
5. CRUXITER “Cruxiter” (Self released)
– More melodic and laidback than expected, but killer twin guitar work and some neat tunes.
