White Widdow - Crossfire

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

I just love WHITE WIDDOW just because they emerged out of nowhere to deliver two ass-kicking albums in 2010 and 2011 respectively, and proved that you don’t have to copy big names from the past just to have your name written in the headline news. Both “White Widdow” and “Serenade” are CDs full of blistering melodic Rock/AOR songs and I was waiting with anticipation some news from this Australian quintet.

King Diamond - Dreams Of Horror

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

I don’t like ‘best of’ compilations because it seems like milking the music that was released years ago as if the artist is no longer capable or even active to produce new material. But this cannot be the case for the master of horror stories King Diamond who most recently proved on European and US stages that his mojo is alive and evil as ever. So, I guess a ‘best of’ compilation was in order to help the youngest metalheads who didn’t have the chance to witness and absorb what King and his band have been delivering for almost three decades, so following this thinking, the release of the two-CD “Dreams Of Horror” was absolutely justified. Plus, the tracklist covers all the songs performed in the most recent touring and at the same time highlights the ones that we missed - but you can never be satisfied, especially with this all-star backcatalogue.

Omega Crom - Beyond Control

Oh my... OMEGA CROM’s second LP “Beyond Control” was surely a massive piece to chew. During the first spin, I almost thought it was a mixed tape since the songs on the album were so diverse, at least at the first glance (perhaps at the second and third also). Anyway, bands like OMEGA CROM are the reason why I love music so much and especially this type when an album feels completely out of control at first but when things start to get familiar and fall into place, it gets better with every spin. OMEGA CROM’s rather technical and smart Heavy/Thrash Metal is appealing to me, at least after the first chock had settled. Bands as NEVERMORE, STRIKER and perhaps SKULL FIST can be mentioned as references. Varied bunch of bands, yes... You get the point.

Brutally Deceased - Black Infernal Vortex

Are you a fan of old school Death Metal? If so, then keep reading, else move on to another album presentation. My first thought when I received BRUTALLY DECEASED’s second full length album “Black Infernal Vortex” was that now all good band names are taken (one can wonder if this should be classified as full-length when it’s just over 30 minutes though). But the name matters less than the music to me, so of course these Czech guys should get the same treatment as any other release. And as a conclusion, I'd say it works because after all they play rather brutal Death Metal, so I guess it fits.
