Jag Panzer - The Deviant Chord

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

It was extremely frustrating reading that JAG PANZER called it a day, especially considering how awesome “The Scourge Of The Light” turned out to be. However, high quality US Power Metal (that this band has been producing since the mid-'80s) has nothing to do with all the things going on behind the scenes nowadays when making a living out of recording music has become a privilege of the few. Fortunately, especially for all of us who’ve been following JAG PANZER, the band’s plans to quit did not go through and, in fact, went back to the studio to produce a brand new offering, titled “The Deviant Chord”. The only thing that was left to make this ‘a huge comeback’ was for this album to be awesome... Well, do you have any doubts about that?

Demon Eye - Prophecies And Lies

Coincidence or not, I thought it was rather out of the ordinary when digging into new music a few years back and getting stuck on three bands (within a week or two), COLOSSUS (now MEGA COLOSSUS), BLOODY HAMMERS and last but not least DEMON EYE. There was this gloomy vibe and a special touch with the bands I really liked, all of them had it, even if their style of music varied. Then realizing all were from North Carolina it became, at that time, the NC sound.

Avatarium - Hurricanes And Halos

A Leif Edling creation without the Doom-father himself? What would be like? Ok, if I got the information right, he was actually part of the record, in the background. So, it's virtually the same thing it always have been with AVATARIUM, with this “Hurricanes And Halos” record. We're still talking about the mellow and wonderfully gloomy Rock / Doom AVATARIUM trademarked a few years ago.

Riffocity - Under A Mourning Sky

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Despite the dire economics in the Metal market, there are still new bands popping up, and to my delight, the music they are putting out shows signs that the underground scene is still going strong. RIFFOCITY is such a band that comes from North Greece, with “Under A Mourning Sky” being their first full length album released earlier in 2017.
