WITCHUNTER - Back on the Hunt Review




WITCHUNTER - Back on the Hunt
Blasphemous Art Productions
Six years have already passed? The debut album of this Italian band was released in 2010 under the title “Crystal Demons” and I think that it is one of the first new bands that had this strong N.W.O.B.H.M. feeling in their sound. The band exists since 2007.  For reasons unknown to me the band after 6 years decided to strike back with its sophomore album and I was really anxious to listen to it.

TOMMY VITALY- Indivisible Review




TOMMY VITALY- Indivisible
SG Records
Tommy Vitaly is a very experienced, guitar wizard from Italy and "Indivisible" is his latest album project.

This album musically is a masterpiece of 10 epic hard rock, power metal, neoclassical heavy metal, progressive metal anthems.

NOCTURNAL RITES sign with AFM / new album „Phoenix“ out in late September!




There are bands which are badly missed once they disappear from the scene. One of those examples are Swedish melodic metal masters NOCTURNAL RITES who released their latest album “The 8th Sin” in 2007 and afterwards slowly slipped into a hiatus kind of situation.

INCARNATE – Hvman Svffering Review




INCARNATE – Hvman Svffering
Cold Church Studios
Here in Greece we say that sometimes an obstacle can lead you to good results and I think this is what happened to INCARNATE from the Netherlands. The band wanted after their 2011 full length release entitled ““Hands of Guilt / Eyes of Greed” to work on an EP release, but they put this project on hold because their singer left the band. INCARNATE decided to focus on composing songs and in August 2014 the vocalist Martijn Geelhoed (ex-REMAINS) joined the band and in the summer of 2015 the band entered to studio to record this release that I am about to present to you.

WARBRINGER - Woe to the Vanquished Review




WARBRINGER - Woe to the Vanquished
Napalm Records
This, by far is the best WARBRINGER release that I've heard!! The production isn't raw, it's well mixed, the vocals are better (not so annoying), and the music is fresh. Totally awesome thrash metal release by this band. The music was what made it stand apart from the rest of their releases. These guys are a 5-piece band and I think their guitarists totally rip on leads. The energy is all there and pretty original sounding riffs. Everything fit well together. The only complaint that I have is that it wasn't a longer album. But I guess 40 minutes of these guys’ music is enough.

FABIANO ANDREACCHIO AND THE ATOMIC FACTORY – Living Dead Groove Review




FABIANO ANDREACCHIO AND THE ATOMIC FACTORY – Living Dead Groove
Sliptrick Records
Italy proves to have a prolific underground scene that is here to match each and every taste out there. Fabiano Andreacchio and his mates The Atomic Factory are here to please some more specific and peculiar tastes in music. Pinpointing their style is hard to do simply because they are all over the place. However, the foundation of their sound is modern and experimental with lots of grooves and electronic elements.
