SNAKEYES – Metal Monster Review

SNAKEYES – Metal Monster


SNAKEYES are a Spanish band with a Romanian singer. I do like these collaborations because they prove that metal is above all colors and nationalities and most of all because such collaborations usually give us good albums to listen to. SNAKEYES have already impressed me with their 2015 debut album entitled “Ultimate Sin” and so when I saw that they had released their sophomore album entitled “Metal Monster” I was really intrigued to listen to their new work.

MILLENNIUM – Awakening Review

MILLENNIUM – Awakening


MILLENNIUM is a band formed in 1982 in Birmingham, United Kingdom and they were part of the N.W.O.B.H.M. metal movement that has affected so drastically our sound. As many bands of that era MILLENNIUM managed to release in 1983 their debut album under the same name; after that they released some demos and called it a day in the late 80’s. The band members, though, thought that they have more to give with this band and I think that the new interest that the new bands show in the N.W.O.B.H.M. sound motivated them to come back and in 2016 to release their sophomore album entitled “Caught in a Warzone”. “Awakening” is the successor of that release and let me tell you a few things about it.

ROSS THE BOSS: The legend returns with new album „By Blood Sworn“!

Ross "The Boss" Friedman left a huge mark on the scene as co-founder and songwriter of Manowar in the 1980s. Between 1982 and 1988, the band released one classic album after another and became the epitome of epic  heavy metal. In 1989, Ross left the band and indulged in other projects, in 2008 the cult guitarist launched his solo band under the banner ROSS THE BOSS - again clearly geared towards traditional heavy metal. The debut "New Metal Leader" was succeeded two years later by "Hailstorm".

HYPERION – Dangerous Days Reviews

HYPERION – Dangerous Days


Well, this is not the first Italian band under the name HYPERION that I have the chance to listen to, but it is definitely better. Actually when I received the CD I thought that they were the reunion of the Italian power metal band HYPERION that in 1999 released their one and as it seems only album entitled “Where Stone Is Unscarred” through Massacre Records. The logo, though, and mainly the music made me realize that I had to do with a totally different band.

BRAINSTORM to enter studio soon!

Good news from the BRAINSTORM camp: one of Germany's premiere metal bands will enter the Greenman Studios to record their upcoming new album with producer Sebastian Seeb Levermann (ORDEN OGAN, Rhapsody Of Fire). The album will be titled "Midnight Ghost", a release is scheduled for September and the tour will start in January 2019.

Vocalist Andy B. Franck comments:
"I think people will realize right away that we took enough of time to deliver a special album, our 12th overall by the way, this time. The songs sound very intense, fresh, heavy and aggressive - even after listening to the material for so long now. Our 12th album, so we will record 12 songs and then decide which of these finally end up on the album. We are happy that we were able to secure the services of Seeb, who was our #1 choice and will take us to the limit. We're so looking forward to working with him - also because we feel that "Midnight Ghost" will become a very special album. Stay tuned for updates, folks!"

KINGS WILL FALL – Thrash Force. One Review

KINGS WILL FALL – Thrash Force. One


Yes, we all know that Italy has a very interesting power metal scene and if you are not convinced, just check out the previous releases that I reviewed and I mean ALTAIR and KALEDON. With KINGS WILL FALL, though, we enter into more aggressive fields, although their name might make you think that we deal with an epic metal band. The title of their debut album can’t be more straight forward and into the point.
