If you were a follower of the Prog band ARTENSION and did not miss the chance to check the sole release by ANGEL OF EDEN (considered as ARTENSION’s successor) then the ARTLANTICA debut will make your mouth water. Just look at the musicians listed in the lineup and let your Progressive Metal excitement take over your senses...

Sludge is a different kind of animal than the rest of the Metal subgenres, with a distinct sound character, and I think it requires some listening experience in order for one to get used to the noisy bass lines and the somewhat strange song structures that to the untrained ear may come as constant buzz/fuzz. No, I don’t have an experienced ear, but I have watched quite a few Sludge bands live and I think this is the only way to appreciate this sound. So, based on this experience, I picked as my next venture in music the third LP by Boston’s (US) ZOZOBRA entitled “Savage Masters”.

And I am saying this because the Canadians have been loyal in the discography all this time and in fact have been always writing very good music (ok, there are a couple of exceptions). On the other side, all this publicity fuss gave ANVIL the chance - and maybe even boosted up the economics (yeah, a band needs money to survive) - to raise the level of studio work giving birth to the awesome “Juggernaut Of Justice”.

Germany’s POWERWORLD released two albums in 2008 and 2010 and tried to fit in the ever-growing melodic Power Metal list that in my personal opinion has long now been saturated due to the lack of spirit in the songwriting and the lame productions that accompany the vast majority of the releases in this genre. The band’s third album does not seem capable of escaping the aforementioned curse...
