Asenblut - Von Worten Und Taten

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

It’s true that the story of Germany’s ASENBLUT started in 2006, but had to undergo a time period of silence until Tetzel, the only original member, resurrected the band. And this time things were serious: after a demo release in 2008 and many live appearances, the Germans released in 2009 their debut album, “Aufbruch”, which received pretty good reviews. Now, four years later, the band unleashes the second effort, entitled “Von Worten Und Taten”.

Ultra-Violence - Privilege To Overcome

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Some three decades after the first wave of Thrash had taken shape in (at least) America, there are still young bands delivering the goods while seeking for inspiration from their idols. Some make it hot, some may not and enough of them stand in the middle. Italy’s ULTRA-VIOLENCE have just released their first full length CD and hope to belong to the first category. Well, do they?

Colossus - Wake

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

It’s not often a band that is somewhat outside my genre to make a strong impression on me like COLOSSUS did with “Wake”. This is a really odd mixture of different styles, one part absolutely touching upon Pagan shores in the vein of PRIMORDIAL just to change over to something completely different. Swedish COLOSSUS is listed as Progressive Stoner/Sludge Metal and no matter how contradictive this might seem, it is actually very true.

Magister Templi - Lucifer Leviathan Logos

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Is this another ‘occult’ Metal band? Well, so and so. MAGISTER TEMPLI comes from the icy lands of Norway and “Lucifer Leviathan Logos” serves as the debut full CD of this weird Oslo-based quintet. With seven songs clocking to some 37 minutes of music you can understand we’re talking about long durations here, hence the Doom/Heavy categorization is not out of the question.
