Hexx - Wrath Of The Reaper

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

It was with the Music For Nations compilation, “Speed Kills...But Who's Dying?”, I was first acquainted with HEXX and the “Mirror Of The Past” song from the “Quest For Sanity” EP kept spinning round after round and I loved it. Which made me feel a bit disappointed when I got my hands on “Under The Spell” as it was much more Heavy Metal oriented than the EP was. These days I love that one too as well as the “No Escape” debut. That's why it is so much fun to dig into “Wrath Of The Reaper”.

Holy Martyr - Darkness Shall Prevail

A new HOLY MARTYR record, yeah! I remember them being very good live when I last saw them. Looking back, I realized this was a decade or so ago since I’d seen these Italians and around the release of their first full length album “Still At War”. Holy s**t, time flies... Fast forward to the present time and “Darkness Shall Prevail”, and a lot has happened in the HOLY MARTYR camp; only Ivano Spiga is left in the line-up and some has happened with the musical direction of the band. Not as much as I first thought digging into “Darkness Shall Prevail” though. It's definitely one step towards being darker and gloomier tunes and the folksy feel and away from the Power Metal. This was perhaps more prominent live than on record.

Surtur - Descendant Of Time

On occasion, something as special as a band from Bangladesh shows up in the inbox for reviewing purposes. I'm always curious about bands from these less standard Metal countries to see what they're up to. SURTUR convinced me during the first spin of their debut EP “Descendant Of Time”.

Sorrows Path - Touching Infinity

I have to admit I was a bit confused after learning that the title track of the upcoming album from the Greek doomsters of SORROWS PATH “Touching Infinity” was actually the closing outro that clocks just one minute... Strange, huh? Not really. If you press the ‘play’ button having this restless band’s third venture in place, you’ll instantly get the theme which goes hand-in-hand with the rich music wrap that isn’t limited to this single track, and that’s one of the beautiful things happening inside. But let’s take first things first...
