The Quill - Tiger Blood

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Being in the middle of summer most of us are searching for something refreshing but not too modern, with a Southern Rock flair enriched by Stoner Rock heavy guitars. I think I got something for this occasion that is the latest creation of Heavy / Stoner metallers THE QUILL (yup, the ones who managed to combine SOUNDGARDEN’s macho attitude with LED ZEPPELIN’s flawless Hard Rock in the release of the legendary “Voodoo Caravan” back in 2002), entitled “Tiger Blood”.

The Devil's Blood - III: Tabula Rasa Or Death And The Seven Pillars

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

“The lamp... the sacrifice... the blood... the end.”

These lines are enough for one to describe the story of the Dutch occult-themed Rock act THE DEVIL’S BLOOD as seen through its discography referring to the three stages of creation (or completion, if you prefer). THE DEVIL’S BLOOD, the spiritual child of one brother and sister, Selim and Farida Lemouchi (who for me is the Adam and Eve of the nowadays’ psychedelic occult Rock scene) have already announced the dissolution of the band along with the release of the third and final album, choosing as a title the well-known quote by Aristotle about the soul, tabula rasa (later adopted by the Italian Dominican priest St. Thomas Aquinas) and seem to agree that knowledge comes through experience and perception.

Invasion - ...And So It Begins

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

INVASION come from Sweden and play the kind of old-school newly-baptized Thrash. They have released a couple of demos in the recent past and “…And So It Begins” is the trio’s first official full-length CD. In a saturated scene like this one it’s now difficult to find the next big band and certainly this one is not the most fitting candidate.

Havok - Unnatural Selection

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Despite what most of the metalheads think, the 80s Thrash revival movement is still happening despite the saturation effect we have seen taking place. Fortunately, for the old-school fans, there are some really good bands out there which seem to have really done their homework when it comes to Thrash. HAVOK belong to the hard-working group of bands and I think the almost ten years of activity is more than enough to stop calling it a new kid on the block.
