Angra - Secret Garden

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

This may sound strange but I do believe that ANGRA is an underrated and to some extent ‘forgotten’ band following the departure of Andre Matos with whom they redefined the Brazilian Metal by putting out something way different than Thrash. And then ANGRA not only recovered the singer-change but found the perfect replacement in the face of Edu Falschi who had the perfect voice for the band’s rebirth (yeah, I am referring to the namesake album). So, the question that was begging for an answer was: can the Brazilian band bounce back after another singer change? Well, “Secret Garden” has everything needed to answer to this and then regain the interest of the current Metal scene which is ‘buried’ by the never-ending album releases.

Castle - Deadhand Hexagram

There are some Metal genres that do not go well with the digital formats - or in political friendly terms, do way better with the analog forms of music and vinyl to be more exact. So, following this way of thinking skipping CASTLE’s Euro tour teaser 7” single would be a vinyl-crime. Ok, in nowadays terms getting just two songs maybe a ridiculous deal but having such pieces of art is priceless, especially if they are combined with equal great music. And in the case of Deadhand Hexagram”, everything checks in with flying colors...

36 Crazyfists - Time & Trauma

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

It’s kind of funny when a new album reminds you how fast time flies, and this happened to me with 36 CRAZYFISTS which I was still considering as another young Metalcore band. So, in full disclosure I have lost track of this US band but at the same time “Time & Trauma” turned out like the most convincing reason to give them a second chance, even though 36 CRAZYFISTS are celebrating their 20th anniversary with this Spinefarm debut release.

Potergeist - Crocodile Tears

No matter how hard I try I cannot come up with a solid excuse why I hadn’t checked the music of POTERGEIST before their full full length “Crocodile Tears” LP that I will admit right away caught me completely off guard. At the same time, this is also the beauty of music, especially when your ears are getting stormed without having no ‘heads up’ warning to tell you something good is coming your way. Ok, in all fairness I have only heard good things about the Athenian band, so I am still wondering why the hell I haven’t checked them before...
