MACABRE DEMISE “Stench Of Death”

“Stench Of Death”
This one has been out a while now but it still deserves to be promoted. I really don’t understand people hat take offense to stuff that are of the grouser kind because as with horror movies it is just make believe. People that hate Cannibal Corpse because of their lyrics should get their heads out of their asses and look at the real world instead. Continue reading

PAGANLAND “Wind Of Freedom”

“Wind Of Freedom”
Can this be anything but pagan metal? Not with a name like that , no way. Bit by bit, band by band I discover more about the Ukraine metal scene. The stuff that I’ve heard so far has almost all been really cool. I have no doubts that this too will be of the cooler kind. I like that epic feel most pagan/folk/heathen metal bands have. Continue reading

JAY PARMAR “Circle Of Fire”

“Circle Of Fire”
I don’t think that I’ve heard anything that JAY PARMAR been involved with before this record. I can’t be too sure because the days when I memorized all band members’ names are long gone. Nowadays I’ll be so lucky if I can remember the band and album names. Memorizing member’s names takes up too much space in my brain. Continue reading

PHIDION “Flesh Of The Forsaken”

“Flesh Of The Forsaken”
PHIDION is to me another new Swedish band. I gotta start keeping a closer ear to the underground to pick up all the chatter that is going on. It’s so bloody hard to keep up with all new bands that keep popping up all over the world, let alone the Swedish ones and still keep track of all the old ones that keep releasing records. Continue reading


Psycho was one of the first horror movies I watched. It took me a long time to actually understand it for what it is and not just focus on Norman Bates’ mother issues. Hopefully I’ll get THE PSYCHO SEASON quicker. The first thing that hit me was that there is a punky kind of vibe to this. Continue reading

QUAOAR “The River And The Soul”

“The River And The Soul”
(Noma Records)
I liked Spanish bands like Baron Rojo in the 80s but that was about it when it came to Spanish hardrock/metal. Spain has along with Portugal always been on the outskirt of European hardrock/metal. It’s been there but not many have heard it. And even today it is still that way to some degree. Continue reading

ROCK MASTER BAND “March Of pink Fat Elephants”

“March Of The Pink Fat Elephants”
(Violent Journey)
There are bad names and then there are really bad names. ROCK MASTER BAND… I have no idea how bad or good this is. All I can say is that whenever I see the word rock in a band’s name I fear the worst. I have nothing against Status Quo but to me that is as bad as it can get when it really is bad. Continue reading

SHADOWS PAST “Perfect Chapter”

“Perfect Chapter”
(Doolittle Group)
Swedish power metal is and have always been great. There is a great history of bands from the 80s up until now that are fine example of power metal. So therefore I have great faith in SHADOWS PAST being another fine example. This was darker than I thought. Continue reading

SIN’ SOUND “From The Undergrund”

“From The Underground”
(Atomic Stuff)
I used to think of Italy as the home of symphonic metal but lately I’ve been introduced to a whole different side of the Italian hardrock/metal scene. The interest might be low but that doesn’t stop the bands from popping up. And rightfully so. Why let the opinion hinder you from doing what you like. If there isn’t a scene, create one yourself. Continue reading


“No Man Without A Ghost”
(Sound Patrol Records)
I’m sorry to say so but SOME CALL THIS TRAGEDY sounds like the typical name of a metalcore band of today. You know the band’s that have names that are four words or longer. Bands that I have no relation whatsoever to. Bands that make me feel my age. But I’m no worse than I can learn to like these bands too. Continue reading
