Born Of Fire - Dead Winter Sun

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

“Born Of Fire” is my all-time favorite BATHORY song and I initially thought this outfit was a Black Metal one. But no, here we’re dealing with a band that portrays a kinda different music style, hailing from the USA and being in action for the last two decades or so. They still have released only one other album to date, so “Dead Winter Sun” is the direct follow-up disc.

Cavalera Conspiracy - Pandemonium

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Even if “Pandemonium” is the third CAVALERA CONSPIRACY LP, it still feels awesome seeing the two Cavalera brothers on the same lineup because the SEPULTURA memories will simply never fade away. To me, the most important fact with CAVALERA CONSPIRACY is that there are no expectations for the music style and that’s the beauty of using different/new band-names being able to claim other territories than your main act does. However, when Max’s name is involved, one should not expect something too different than his other contributions, so get ready to Thrash and forget all about the groove...

Ancient VVisdom - Sacrificial

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

I won’t deny that I was more than pleasantly surprised by “A Godlike Inferno”, ANCIENT VVISDOM’s debut, and its follower “Deathlike” which, even if it does not have the up-tempo speeds and the dynamic electric guitar outbursts of its predecessor, it still touches the deepest parts of my soul. This year, Cleveland, Ohio’s occult Death Rock conjurors return in discography with their third full-length, entitled “Sacrificial”, only a year and a half after their sophomore release saw the light of day (or night). Inevitably, one question came to mind: “can ANCIENT VVISDOM continue the successful stride releasing a really good third album?” so, in case we are sharing the same concerns, all you have to do is continue reading.

Ordo Inferus - Invictus Et Aeternus

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

When they wrote the term ‘super-group’ in the press sheet following this record, they weren't kidding about it, since ORDO INFERUS hold the spice of Stockholm Death Metal scene. “Invictus Et Aeternus” is the debut full-length release for this group but they sure are experienced in this area too, releasing records with NECROPHOBIC, GODHATE and NIFELHEIM to mention a few. What I thought was really exciting about “Invictus Et Aeternus” is that it is varied and holds many different elements in the music without moving away from classic Stockholm trademark Death Metal style. Take “Lingua Silentium” for example; this track is both heavy and brutal but turns over into an almost psychedelic passage in the end. Damn cool I say and the contrast towards “Io Saturnalia” which is a fast bastard becomes extreme.
