1. KENN NARDI “Dancing With The Past” (Tribunal)
– 28(!) songs that sounds like a natural follow up to the last Anacrusis-album. Monumental and emotional.
2. TRIAL ”Vessel”(High Roller)
– A band that is still growing, still improving. Close to dark heavy metal perfection!
3. TAROT “The Watcher’s Dream” (Heavy Chains)
– Third demo from the band this year. All awesome! Might need a bit more time than the first two.
4. PRIMORDIAL “Where Greater Men Have Fallen” (Metal Blade)
– Not their best album, but still enjoyable and umistakably Primordial.
5. CONVENT GUILT “Guns For Hire” (Cruz Del Sur)
– Needed to revisit this slab of pure heavy metal on vinyl.
