Harm - The Nine

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

It’s funny how the mind gets biased just by reading the country of origin in a band’s bio. And yes, I also fell in this trap after reading that HARM come from Canada, since I was expecting something close to the old school Thrash that this country is so famous in the Metal scene (I hope the young metalheads share the same knowledge). Anyway, guessing the music style before hitting the play button is just a way to have fun before getting your hands dirty and actually listening to the album in question.

Liv Kristine - Libertine

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

There is no doubt that Liv Kristine has one of the most powerful and characteristic female voices in the Metal scene having started her career with the legendary Norwegians Metal Gothsters THEATRE OF TRAGEDY back in 1993, even if later she decided to choose a different music path, leaving her Metal-related ID aside. Since she gifted our CD collection with albums like “Velvet Darkness They Fear” (1996) and my personal favorite “Aégis” (1998), I could not remaining indifferent from the fact that the German nightingale releases her fourth solo full length album, entitled “Libertine”, even if I knew that this release was not going to satisfy my Metal thirst.

Phantom-X - The Opera Of The Phantom

I initially learned about this band after Goocher had become the vocalist for my beloved US Heavy/Epic Metal legends OMEN. Ever since I kept an eye on them and I consider their past three albums (the first two of them released through the legendary Mausoleum Records) as nice pieces of American Metal with a solid connection to the 80s flavor. To be honest, I did not believe I’d listen to something different in this new album...

Ensiferum - Unsung Heroes

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

I guess this album is the most anticipated one among the Folk Metal lovers and I can understand this since ENSIFERUM have been working their way via hard hitting albums, full of riffs and war-like atmospheres. But along with the high expectations comes the danger of disappointment since it is impossible for a band to satisfy everyone.
