Cavalera Conspiracy - Psychosis

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Whoever had the chance to attend the ‘Roots tour with the Cavaleras playing the entire SEPULTURA namesake record witnessed the great state the brothers are in, so seeing a new CAVALERA CONSPIRACY LP hitting the stores should not be a surprise. So, the (obvious) questions dying for an answer are; how has the “Roots” revival affected the music-writing hands, and how “Psychosis” sounds like? Does it follow as straight line from “Pandemonium”?

Tainted Lady - How The Mighty Have Fallen

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

After the “The Witness”-intro, TAINTED LADY's debut album “How The Mighty Have Fallen” kicks off in a mighty fine DEEP PURPLE spirit with “Set Us Free”. It's a true '70s type riff with the traditional pauses and a fantastic drive. It's not far off to mention AEROSMITH either. Perhaps the choruses and Michael Catton are of more the contemporary style but it all flows in a very good way together. Fun thing with this song is the second half where the music industry has looks as the a priority over skills. It feels like something from the late '80s or early '90s when Thrash and Grunge opposed to the MTV trends and the mega bands coming with that generation. Though it might be just as valid as it always have been, the entertainment industry isn't really known to be fair.

Sea - The Grip Of Time

To dig in to the Danish Hard Rock / Heavy Metal scene has been like walking in the woods looking for chanterelles. You know they are there but you never expect to find anything when suddenly there's something bright golden yellow that's not a leaf and you get all excited and say, at least there was one. Then, looking a bit further, there's another and another and suddenly the whole ground around you is golden rather than green. SEA is yet another discovery which sounds amazing, both live and on record. “The Grip Of Time” is the band's second album but the first I ever hear from them.

Vuur - In This Moment We Are Free - Cities

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

There is no doubt about it; Anneke van Giersbergen has managed to create a solid fanbase from her THE GATHERING days with her unique singing and, maybe on top of everything, through her down-to-earth attitude and warm personality which captivates every audience. Another amazing achievement is that Anneke has fans coming from a brought music-listening spectrum, with Metal having the strong(est) presence. The latter group of fans has kept a burning desire of listening Anneke going heavy again with the work she did with Arjen’s AYREON being the closest but not exactly the real thing. I think it is ok to spill the beans about here and say that VUUR will definitely mark this highly anticipated return and allow me to tell you why.
