2. COBRA “To Hell” (Austral Holocaust)

– Cool, old school heavy metal with some hard rock thrown in and the usual Southern American charm. Continue reading

PLAYLIST: Week 52


1. SLOUGH FEG ”Digital Resistance” (Metal Blade)Slough Feg - Digital Resistance - Artwork

– Will this band ever disappoint? Quality as we come to expect it from Mike Scalzi & Co. Simply put – a metal institution!

2. DARK FOREST “The Awakening” (Cruz Del Sur)

– Awesome twin guitars and some really huge choruses. Is it diverse enough to stand the test of time? Continue reading

PLAYLIST: Week 50


1. REALMBUILDER “Blue Flame Cavalry” (I Hate)REALMBUILDER-Blue-Flame-Cavalry-CD

PLAYLIST: Week 45


1. SOLSTICE “Death’s Crown Is Victory”  (Self released)cover

– EP with two killer long tracks as well as two cool instrumentals. Long enough to convince, short enough to leave you wanting more.

2. RAVENSIRE “We March Forward” (Eat Metal)

– What an improvement on the EP! Raw, epic and heavy. It doesn’t get more metal than this! Continue reading

PLAYLIST: Week 29


1. Stone Magnum ”From Time…To Eternity” (RIP)STONE-MAGNUM-From-Time___To-Eternity-cover-art

– Solid songwriting, heavy riffs and a extremely good singer make a great doom metal-album. Great to see the RIP-logo as well. Love those old October 31 and Skullview-releases.

2. Hürlement “Terreur Et Torment” (Emanes Metal)

– Sold out when I wanted to buy it on CD at KIT, forgot about it until it was released on vinyl recently. I have a soft spot for pure HM sung in French!

PLAYLIST: Week 17


 Sinister%20Realm%20-%20World%20Of%20Evil%20(2013)1. Sinister Realm ”World Of Evil” (Shadow Kingdom)

– On par with the first two. The title track and “Bell Strikes Fear” are eternal hymns.

2. Asgard “Outworld” (My Graveyard)

– Right now, I prefer the debut, but this has quality written all over it. Old school songwriting dressed in a modern production. Continue reading
