Album Reviews

Marc Vanderberg - Highway Demon

Less than a year ago, a lot less actually there was a ping on Facebook with a link to a song and a question if I was interested in reviewing Marc Vanderberg's debut album, titled “Devil May Care”. This is happening rather frequently, so nothing strange with that. There was this line in the same message that caught my interest though saying; "you know, Kee Marcello plays on one of the songs and Göran Edman sings on the title track..." So, I decided to do it, also because the sample coming in the message sounded fantastic.

Epica - The Solace System

From the get-go, this EP does not feel like a filler release. I mean, the six tracks in “The Solace System” are neither different takes of already released songs, nor bonus material which did not make it in the latest full length “The Holographic Principle”. According to what EPICA have said in the ‘making of’ videos for this EP, these are songs that could not fit into “The Holographic Principle” due to time restrictions unless the plan was to release a double LP. Ok, there must have been a market-related decision, since EPICA are already on this side of the Atlantic, so having a new material out helps to keep the band on top of the US audience newsfeed.

The Quireboys - White Trash Blues

I'm not all that into Blues - not on record at least. But I really do like THE QUIREBOYS and have been doing so since I’ve first heard “Hey You” on MTV, eons ago. So, it was with both anticipation and reluctance I took on “White Trash Blues”. I felt excited since it’s new stuff from THE QUIREBOYS but a bit bummed out that it was a selection of Blues tracks, covers...

Atlantean Kodex - The Annihilation Of Bavaria

Yet another release that will be a necessity for the collection! I'm normally not all that into live-albums but “The Annihilation Of Bavaria” caught my interest and I really wanted to hear if ATLANTEAN KODEX and team could capture the fantastic atmosphere the band’s shows have. I mean, for being a small band (sure, they pack out most venues but it's still not an arena band), the singing and cheering by the crowd for ATLANTEAN KODEX has been one of the most massive ever. The band celebrates their 10th anniversary now and one could perhaps think it would be better to focus on a new record rather than yet another live-album as this is the band's third.
