Holy Grail - Ride The Void

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

HOLY GRAIL really create quite a fuss around their name with the “Improper Burial” EP and the full length “Crisis In Utopia” that followed almost one year later. Sure, the WHITE WIZZARD references had to do with this but I think HOLY GRAIL quickly stepped in a safe distant form the previous lineup (and band) and are already walking on a path of their own.

Lancer - Lancer

Another Swedish band, yes. LANCER released their first demo work in 2010 with a self-financed EP entitled “Purple Sky” coming out two years later. They are hungry to rock hard and they have their young age as a benefit. For some strange reason they do not belong to the long list of bands appearing the last years as re-inventors of the 80s Metal feel; they mainly use some trademark IRON MAIDEN points of reference and then came up with songs and basic melodies that have a lot in common with the late 80s and 90s scene of European melodic Heavy Metal e.g. HELLOWEEN, GAMMA RAY, STRATOVARIUS , HAMMERFALL or something like this.

Corrosion Of Conformity - Eye For An Eye

I like reissues, especially those that are band approved; I like them because sometimes the band is old and its albums are not available from the publishers, and then the young generation has a second chance to meet the roots of a band.

Thy Majestie - ShiHuangDi

I admit it; I had my mind set about THY MAJESTIE before even listening to these Italian’s fifth full length album. My preconception regarding Italian Power Metal is that it is normally very pompous and frankly even cheesy. And at the first spin I sorted THY MAJESTIE’s “ShiHuangDi” under that label without second thought. Luckily though, one spin of a record is far from enough when writing a review.
