GRÁ “Necrology Of The Witch”

GRA
“Necrology Of The Witch”
(Unexploded)
Grá was being hailed as the great saviour of black metal when they released their previous album. Oh I see, you’ve heard it before. I guess it all comes down to what you expect from a band. I will admit though that the album I reviewed a while back wasn’t too shabby a piece of black metal. Continue reading

I LIED “World Insane”

I LIED
“World Insane”
(Violent Journey)
I’m not much for lying. My motto is that it is better to tell than being told upon. Hopefully this band hasn’t lied about their music so that I will be blown away by a massive metal album. But as long as the band is true to its ideal who am I to complain? This is a full on thrash blast. No need lying about that. Continue reading

MASCOT PARADE “Cause And Effect”

MASCOT PARADE
“Cause And Effect”
(Noisehead)
The things I’ve seen written about this Swedish band has them raised to the sky. I wonder if I’ll feel the same when I’ve heard this album. I really need to be whizzed off to a marvelous place after the bloody long winter we’ve had this season. To be honest I had kinda expected this to be more of a light v/s dark album Continue reading

NOX ILLUNIS “Metempsychosis”

NOX ILLUNIS
“Metempsychosis”
( WAR Productions)
I’m at a loss when it comes to Latin. Which is why I have no idea what this band’s name mean. Not that it really matters. All I really care about is if the music is any good. There used to be a Swedish band by the name of Satan’s Penguins that had the most terrible name but whose music wasn’t too bad. Continue reading

RAWAGE “Triumph Of Sin”

RAWAGE
“Triumph Of Sin”
(Violent Journey)
This gotta be good with a name like RAWAGE. A combination of raw and ravage can’t fail, can it? Other than the band name I know very little about this band. But I’m sure as hell is going to find out as much as I can about them starting with their record. I can’t help being impressed by how many bands there are in Finland. Continue reading

SANGE MAIN MACHINE “By Your Side”

SANGE MAIN MACHINE
“By Your Side”
(Street Symphonies)
I really like hardrock. Grew up on it and can’t seem to let g of it. Have a weak spot for the most sugary of hardrock melodies you could ever imagine. Don’t know if that comes from growing up in the land of ABBA. Seeing as this is my first encounter with the band this record is the perfect start as it contains 3 remixed songs, 3 new songs and a KISS cover. Continue reading

SAVIOR FROM ANGER “Age Of Decadence”

SAVIOR FROM ANGER
“Age Of Decacdence”
(MyGraveyard)
You can argue that we live in the age of decadence with all the wealth we dispense of while other parts of the world suffer to just survive. You could argue that we are our own downfall. But what a journey it is towards true devastation of planet earth (or is it?). This blew me away. Continue reading

SAWHILL SACRIFICE “Deus Humana Satanas”

SAWHILL SACRIFICE
“Deus Humana Satanas”
(Violent Journey)
I like horror movies. When I recently sorted out my DVD collection I noticed that I was more of a horror movie buff than I thought. Don’t know what it is about horror movies that interest me but a really good scare is never wrong. This is horrifying in a whole different league. Continue reading

SPASMODIC “Mondo illustrated”

SPASMODIC
“Mondo Illustrated”
(Unexploded)
This Swedish death/thrash metal band has been in my conscious for some time now but I have for various reasons never checked them out. But that is about to be rectified with this their debut album. My main concern I think has been the band name. I’ve thought them to be too much of a joke band Continue reading
