DragonForce - Maximum Overload

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

I remember that I used to like DRAGONFORCE, especially during their first two albums era. Then something happened and the music became over-complicated, being focused to the faster-than-light riffs that could wear off your fingertips if you’d try to follow those maze-like tabs. Anyway, one can always stop following a band without complaining like he is the one calling the shots, and this is what I did. Since then, a lot of water has run under the bridge and now DRAGONFORCE released the second LP, having Marc Hudson behind the mic after the very good “The Power Within”. So, “Maximum Overload” made me re-check this band since there were striking signs that something good was brewing...

Ace Frehley - Space Invader

It’s been five years since Ace had offered his last studio recording, the controversial “Anomaly” CD. Since then, little was heard about him and his musical activities (a book regarding his deeds all these years was on its way, though) so the news that a new solo record was in the making brought relief and happiness to the hordes of fans that follow him after his departure from KISS (the first or the second one - you choose).

Death Penalty - Sign Of Times

The day UK’s Doom legends CATHEDRAL announced their disband was a sad day for many Doom aficionados out there, including myself. But that sadness did not last for long; the news that guitarist Gaz Jennings formed the band DEATH PENALTY (I really love the WITCHFINDER GENERAL reference here), with SERPENTCULT’s Michelle Nocon and Fredrik Cosemans, was more than music to our ears, and the first sample of their studio doings in the form of the single-teaser entitled “Sign Of Times” for their upcoming self-titled debut (which will hit the stores at the mid of September), proves to be more than a good omen.

Planet Of Zeus - Vigilante

I was very much aware of PLANET OF ZEUS but for some reason I hadn't checked their music. Maybe this was some kind of a reflex to anything that seems to be the current hype or trend. And yes, the Greek band has created such hype, mainly through touring where - by the way - everything is tested before being approved. Anyway, the band’s third album “Vigilante” was meant to be the reason for me to eventually check PLANET OF ZEUS and two were the immediate outcomes; a) I am glad I did, and b) I am sorry that I hadn’t all this time.
