Reuben Archer’s Personal Sin - Petrolhead

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Ok, so I got a little overexcited reading about REUBEN ARCHER'S PERSONAL SIN and their second album “Petrolhead” and got a little carried away. I was blown away by STAMPEDE's gig at the 'NWOBHM X-MAS Rocka' in Sheffield in 2016, so I just had to have it. I ordered the albums and requested a promo for review before I actually gave the “Grand Theft Auto” video-single a go... With its Blues-y nature, for a few seconds, I thought I'd be in over my head. But only a few bars into the song I was overmastered and found myself hitting 'play' again and crank up the volume.

Judas Priest - Firepower

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Seeing a new album from the mighty JUDAS PRIEST is a huge deal, especially if you add the significant lineup changes that for many are enough to be(come) show-stoppers. Of course, and it is a hard pill to swallow seeing PRIEST without the most characteristic guitar-duo in the entire Metal scene, and then, to hear the news about Tipton’s health... On the other hand, our Metal idols are as human as we are, so such things are (sadly) part of life, and how to musically approach one of your favorite bands should be an entirely different game. A huge plus in the case of PRIEST is the presence of Rob Halford, aka Metal God, whose voice does not give a damn about age and it is one of the most powerful weapons on PRIEST’s “Firepower” (pun intended).

Salem - Attrition

Sometimes, it is horror mixed with delight when some records hit the stereo for the first time. And since SALEM's “Dark Days” really knocked me off my feet two years ago, I was afraid I may had pushed my expectations way too high to give “Attrition” a fair chance.

Tribulation - Down Below

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Ok, I get it; bands like Sweden’s Black-ened Dark-theatric quartet TRIBULATION aren’t out there to satisfy every taste, and it’s totally fine. But now that we’ve got that out of the way, I utterly dare you to find one band that was born and raised through the ’00s, able to release a new “Wildhoney”, “Irreligious”, “Amok” or a “Come, Reap” EP at least. Yeah right, that’s exactly my point; there is none... well, except TRIBULATION. After the impressive “The Children Of The Night” full length of 2015, many were convinced that this band will continue offering this unique monochromatic Vampiric Black Metal, so there was a good reason why I got so excited once the new TRIBULATION album reached my hands. And since I’ve already talked about a new groundbreaking offering following the innovative steps of TIAMAT, MOONSPELL, SENTENCED during the weird ‘90s, or even of THE DEVIL’S BLOOD that rocked our world for good almost a decade ago, let me explain why “Down Below” belongs to this category.
