1. BATTLEROAR “Blood Of Legends” (Cruz Del Sur)
– With Gerrit singing, this sounds quite different, still very cool. Needs a bit of time.
2. PORTRAIT ”Crossroads” (Metal Blade)
– Can’t stop spinning this one. So many storng songs and exciting parts. Vocals not as upfront as on the last one.
3. COBRA “To Hell” (Austral Holocaust)
– Hard to get tired of. Extremely solid heavy metal with the typical South American touch.
4. HIGH SPIRITS “You Are Here” (High Roller)
– Funny, catchy and energetic hard rock.
5. DEEP MACHINE “Rise Of The Machine” (High Roller)
– A big disappointment compared to the absolutely terrific EP, but still okay midtempo heavy metal.
Damn, I want to check first 3 badly, aargh!
