Dead Lord - Goodbye Repentance

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

What happens when the sound of a rookie band reminds you so much one of the leviathans of mid-70s Rock scene, being actually too copycats that, in some parts, the similarities that could be a true oasis for your thirsty Rock-addictive ears can also be kind of annoying at the same time? Well, this is almost the case of Sweden’s DEAD LORD who seem to bleed THIN LIZZY from every single vein. Since I had already tasted their 7’’ “No Prayers Can Help You Now” (check it HERE), released almost one year ago, I knew what to expect (and I actually expected it with excitement), but I wouldn’t imagine that their debut would sound that much THIN LIZZY-esque. Let’s press together the ‘play’ button and discover why.

Warbeast - Destroy

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

When I first watched WARBEAST onstage I knew nothing about Phil Anselmo’s involvement via Housecore Records (he is also as the producer here) and did not make the connection with RIGOR MORTIS, even though the frontman looked so familiar, especially after his appearance at ‘Keep It True’ festival some years ago. So, without being prejudiced or pre-heated, I was hooked by the band’s Thrash sound full of aggressive riffs and a ton heavy rhythm section. Anyway, WARBEAST’s recent tour with DOWN did convince me that this band is here to stay and in fact, the unreleased back then tracks sounded awesome, so I was expecting “Destroy” with a burning Thrash hunger.

Omission - Pioneers Of The Storm

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Usually, I’m very open when it comes to bands playing old school Metal music. But I can’t really embrace this as far as Spain’s OMISSION is concerned. “Pioneers Of The Storm” is OMISSION’s third full length album and is one of the few different releases from them since their first discographic step in 2005. And frankly, a band that has been around for this long should sound better than this.
