Impellitteri - Venom

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

For everyone occupying himself with the six-string goddess, the name of this man is not unknown. Chris Impellitteri started out in the late '80s as a rising guitar hero and now - some 28 years after his first release - he is considered to be one of the most ‘classic’ shredders around the globe. But what’s up when it comes to songwriting, boys and girls?

Nightwish - Endless Forms Most Beautiful

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

In case you haven’t noticed, NIGHTWISH have been around for almost two decades, so questioning their presence in a Metal webzine is kind out of place. The Finnish band has offered a lot in setting the foundations for the female fronted Symphonic Metal being onboard the same ship with the charismatic soprano singer and performer Tarja. Sure, the fans were torn seeing her and NIGHTWISH going separate ways, but Tuomas Holopainen did forge on and released the impressive “Dark Passion Play” having the Pop singer Annete Olzon behind the mic. Keeping in mind that there are not many bands out there which have successfully survived a singer-change, I had no doubt that Tuomas would put together another great album with Floor Jansen who, by the way, fits better in NIGHTWISH's music. So, lets see what are the most beautiful things “Endless Forms Most Beautiful” is talking about.

Sacral Rage - Illusions In Infinite Void

Greece has enough bands close to the traditional/epic Metal or Thrash Metal style. But this is a different situation here; SACRAL RAGE was born in 2011 and after a couple of demo releases and a 2013 EP, the band is ready to deliver their first full-length album, entitled “Illusions In Infinite Void”.

Keep Of Kalessin - Epistemology

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Even though Norway’s KEEP OF KALESSIN have been around for two decades, our paths never crossed, something that was meant to happen after the singer replacement and the “Epistemology” release. In full disclosure I will admit that I did some sampling before digging deeper on this album just to make sure it wasn’t something I’ve heard million times before from this type of Black Metal with the occasional symphonic finishing touches. And yes, I was rewarded since the new KEEP OF KALESSIN album managed to get me hooked, even though it may be a turn off for all those Black Metal fans who like more the band’s early works.
