Mpire Of Evil - Crucified

When I am referring to VENOM I am exclusively talking about the Cronos fronted days but this has nothing to do with the Demolition Man who replaced him for a series of albums. After all, Tony Dolan’s work with ATOMKRAFT is still a well-hidden NWOBHM gem. Sure, this way of looking things is absolutely biased and it would have caused trouble to my VENOM collection if “Prime Evil” had slipped through these cracks.

Dynamite - Lock N Load

Fans of AC/DC (of the Bon Scott era), KROKUS, ROSE TATTOO and CULT (the “Electric” era) will dig this one. DYNAMITE come from Sweden delivering dirty Hard Rock music the way the aforementioned bands first did and ruled the world. You won’t get an innovation here, there’s no way blokes...

Procession - To Reap Heavens Apart

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Through the farrago of thousands Metal bands that inundate our ears these days, there are still some traditional Doom Metal albums that show respect and devotion to the sacred principals of the European CANDLEMASS rites, but with the grandeur of the Americans SOLITUDE AETURNUS. After the best of impressions that PROCESSION’s debut, “Destroyers Of The Faith”, left me, the Chilean Metal quartet of misery and epic Doom-ness (actually this is the first PROCESSION album as a four-piece, with the addition of guitarist Jonas Pedersen and the replacement of the drummer Francisco Aguirre by Uno Bruniusson) is back with “To Reap Heavens Apart”, as a response to our prayers for more high quality Doom Metal.

Cult Of The Fox - Angelsbane

I feel a strange type of bliss whenever a band bounces back with a second album as a follow up to a very good debut one. You see, debut albums are so special since it features the band’s hard work and passion packed in a series of songs whereas the sophomore release – most of the times – gets created in a hurry in order to maintain the same momentum. But this is not the case with Sweden’s CULT OF THE FOX that really took their time and almost two years after 2011’s “A Vow Of Vengeance” debut are back in discography with their sophomore effort. I guess this is the proper way to do things because the first couple of albums are what musically defines a band and it’s extremely to erase/change things afterwards.
