Denner / Shermann - Masters Of Evil

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

It’s always hard to look on a release with an unbiased thinking when there’s so much baggage to take impressions from as it is for DENNER / SHERMANN. One of the major things is of course their past with most notable being MERCYFUL FATE but also FORCE OF EVIL and more. But for me, it’s equally much Sean Peck’s work with CAGE and DEATH DEALER that weighs in. I kind of wish I hadn’t listen to CAGE as much prior to digging in to the DENNER / SHERMANN “Masters Of Evil” release, since the fantastic “Ancient Evil” is in the same genre like this one and there are elements that makes them kind of similar.

Lord Vicar - Gates Of Flesh

Yup, there are some bands out there (quite a few actually) which have nothing to prove, simply because their songwriting has been producing golden tunes able to stand the test of time and this speaks volumes about their creativity. For the Doom Metal fans, Finnish lords LORD VICAR belong to this category of the few and rightfully so, therefore the news about the release of their third full length, “Gates Of Flesh”, can only be characterized as music to (our) ears and allow me to tell you why...

Edu Falaschi - Moonlight

It is true; ANGRA became known with the most charismatic singer Andre Matos with whom released an impressive set of albums and even though the scene has lost its interest, those releases remain impossible to surpass. Still, the Brazilians forged on after the departure of Matos and did an impressive comeback with “Rebirth” having Edu Falaschi handling the difficult task to fill those large shoes. Edu, not only managed to lift this heavy weight, but I strongly believe opened an entire new chapter for ANGRA while avoiding to get trapped by the always pointless comparisons. Yeah, Edu possesses a different type of vocals but was still a great fit to ANGRA’s unique type of Power Metal. A lot of water has run under the bridge since then, and nowadays Edu Falaschi has his own band ALMAH, while “Moonlight” is his debut solo album which is in the context of celebrating his career.

Fates Warning - Theories Of Flight

FATES WARNING’s “Theories Of Flight” was definitely one of the most anticipated releases of this year for me. It was the same three years ago with “Darkness In A Different Light” and even if I think that one is fantastic, now it took time to get into it and have it settle. That’s why it was with mixed feelings I took on this one. It’s a bit nerve-wrecking to dig into a record from a favorite band but of course I didn’t have anything to worry about.
