Daylight Dies - A Frail Becoming

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

According to my music IQ, melodic Doom Metal in the likes of MY DYING BRIDE or KATATONIA (early) is a difficult to follow genre mainly due to the dominating depressive atmosphere that is not ideal for each time of the day. The listener has to be in a certain mood in order to absorb and breathe the dark side of Metal expressed with slow tempos, growling vocals and some minimal keyboard work.

Mob Rules - Cannibal Nation

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Being far away from credited as a typical European Power Metal fan, MOB RULES is a band that I always admired. To my ears, they always had this sense of melody and power that on one hand did not suffer from as pale outcome and on the other hand did not sound ‘smurfy’ at all. What I did not have in mind that clearly, was the fact that times passes rather quickly, hence “Cannibal Nation” now stands as the German outfit’s seventh studio effort, with a backing discography already raising the bar high; 2009’s “Radical Peace” was quite an imaginative disc as far as I can recall.

Impera - Legacy Of Life

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

“Legacy Of Life” is the first attempt of this band assembled by a quartet of KISS fanatics – as the Press release states – but the music stands out as not that KISS-related. The talented musicians rounding this release have all been playing with known names in the music business, from Vinnie Vincent and TOTO to JAGGED EDGE and Graham Bonnet, and the expectations logically rise high in regards to what “Legacy Of Life” is all about. Crank it up and roll on with the music, ok?

Lord Fowl - Moon Queen

It may be true that the legendary LED ZEPPELIN have talked about the May queen in their epic “Stairway To Heaven”, released in late 1971, driving all the rockers frenetic around the globe for more than 40 years, but now it’s time for LORD FOWL to speak about their “Moon Queen” who seems to hold pretty tight the moon inside her arms as shown in the album’s cover artwork, while the band’s singer states plain and simple in the self-titled track, “I’m in love with a satellite lady”.
