Saracen - Redemption

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

SARACEN is responsible for one of the finest NWOBHM records of all time, 1981’s “Heroes, Saints & Fools”. But apart from that masterpiece, the band from the United Kingdom has offered some other fascinating albums in its long career. The newest release by these guys is named “Redemption” and follows three years after 2011’s “Marilyn” concept album.

X-DRIVE? Well, I’ve never heard of this name before in the past, so let’s see what the Press release has to say. Guitarist Jeremy Brunner is the founder of the project and this is the debut album we get. OK, let’s see what’s lurking inside here, even if the cover picture and the label responsible for the release may bring a first draft picture.

Ocean Chief - Universums Härd

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

If you have a sweet tooth for primal Sludge with a generous dosage of infinite, saturated ambient smouldering strokes, then you should immediately check on Swedes OCEAN CHIEF’s latest studio effort, entitled “Universums Härd” (ok, if you haven’t already). Sure, this one is not an easy pill to swallow, but again, my guess is that this genre’s connoisseurs know that, right?

Kypck - Имена На Стене

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

KYPCK is a really strange animal and a completely overlooked band but maybe this has to do with the Russian language used in the lyrics, despite the fact that this is an all Finnish lineup. I know this is quite confusing to say the least but at the same time the ancestry and the language should be of minimum importance because the music is all that matters. Sure, one (myself included) prefers to understand what the lyrics are saying but sometimes the pronunciation and singer’s reading can be a perfect match to the music, so everything is ok. So, “Имена На Стене” is the band’s third full length album and it came as a surprise because I still remember how impressed I was with the debut Черно” released six years ago... time flies, right?
