BAT - Wings Of Chains

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Yeah, I know... summer is close to our doorstep and probably you’d like to listen something new, refreshing and a bit’ laid-back to fully enjoy the quite evenings with a cold one at hand and breathe-in nature’s full bloom... NOT! Actually, this release (and I’m talking about BAT’s latest venture with the whimsical title “Wings Of Chains”) is all full-speed and pedal to the Metal album, so you better wear your bullet-belts, your denim jackets (oh hell, I know it’s summer) and your aviator Ray-bans and let’s take a ride on this kick-ass Speed / Crossover bad-boy.

Suidakra - Realms Of Odoric

“Realms Of Odoric” is SUIDAKRA’s twelveth full length and it is safe to say that the Germans have found a safe place when it comes to their music identity (after changing things a bit) because they have been releasing pretty solid albums. This one is no exception and, in fact, I think it is better than “Eternal Defiance” and this can be partly attributed to the fact the new LP is a concept following the happenings on a fantasy world. So yes, there is a lot of inspiration packed in the longest SUIDAKRA album thus far.

Cage - Ancient Evil

Everything CAGE have ever put out, holds a really high standard, if you’d ask me. But when comparing previous release “Supremacy Of Steel” and 2009’s “Science Of Annihilation” with “Darker Than Black” and the absolutely fantastic “Helldestroyer”, I realized that both “Supremacy Of Steel” and “Science Of Annihilation” pasted me by in a way the earlier two didn’t. Picking up “Ancient Evil” I was happy to hear a step towards the “Helldestroyer” sound again. The major issue I had with “Supremacy Of Steel” was the overly processed and plastic production. “Science Of Annihilation” sounded good but lacked the catchy songs instead, there’s a lot of cool stuff on that album but it’s not as direct as the others. “Ancient Evil” feels more organic, even if the sound is modern. And perhaps most important, it’s loaded with different feelings and dynamics.

Nervosa - Agony

No matter what some metalheads are claiming, the situation with women in Metal has not changed a lot aside from the fact that nowadays are more ladies playing in or fronting bands. Ok, the Metal scene is more receptive seeing the women fronting bands but still it is considered as an important PR prop when a full-female band releases an album. And in the case of NERVOSA, the PR heat is even higher because this power-trio has released it second LP, “Agony”, full of old-school Thrash. For me, seeing that NERVOSA come from Brazil and play '80s Thrash are way more important than the musician’s gender...
