Meridian - Margin Of Error

There were a couple of things that stood out on my first encounter with the Danes of MERIDIAN. First and foremost it was that they managed to keep their Progressive Power Metal both heavy and catchy at the same time. Then, it was Lars Märker's voice; it's crisp and clear, quite boyish actually and create a great contrast towards to the heavy music. Still, it all fits really well together in its own unique way. This perhaps makes MERIDIAN sound less heavy than they are but the combination works.

The Three Tremors - The Three Tremors

It is a bit rare to find a metalhead who has never heard the band name THE THREE TREMORS despite the fact that this never became reality... until now. It is also rare to come across a metalhead who does not have a strong opinion on who deserves to be part of the three. On the other side of the spectrum, there are some of us who like to play this game of creating all-start lineups with the naïve intention to create a mix of styles from the bands those musician picks come from. In fact, back in the free-from-internet days, putting together such lineups was a fan pastime activity. With this in mind, I was super excited when I read the news that the project THE THREE TREMORS would happen after all these years of being almost an urban legend. Yes, three of the best screamers in Metal decided to join forces and make this happen by releasing a hearty 12-track LP, full of originals.

Doro - Forever Warriors, Forever United

Six years is too much time, especially for a super active band like DORO that is constantly touring on every continent. No matter what people think, Doro has been a stable force in Metal and one of the few musicians who put the fans first before anything else. I guess, it is the old-school spirit that is still shining through her never-aging voice and on-stage presence. Finally, Doro found the right amount of time from touring to put on record the material she had been gathering. The result is a double studio album packed with music and a heavy dedication on top of it. You see, “Forever Warriors, Forever United” contains a song dedicated to the one and only Lemmy, and it would be beyond being silly to believe that this was done as a marketing move... If you think so, then you should do some serious studying of Metal history and - trust me - your way of thinking will change.

Svarta Sanningar - Kapitel 1

The mellow beat which starts off SVARTA SANNINGAR's debut EP “Kapitel 1” has that character that lures you in and draws you into the beat. It's dreamy, melancholic and melodic with a touch of post-Punk and Rock to keep it filthy. I do think the reason why Punk comes to mind lies more in the face that everything is sung in Swedish rather than the style itself though. Musically, this matches the moniker set as SVARTA SANNINGAR as the gloom overshadows the whole EP.
