Blaze Bayley - The Redemption Of William Black

Blaze Bayley - The Redemption Of William Black

Blaze Bayley is a unique performer and it is such a shame that received so much negativity during this time in MAIDEN. There are always two sides in every coin and in this case, Blaze got to start his solo career after leaving the British band. How things went from that day up until now is a real rollercoaster with lots of downs and, fortunately more ups, especially the positivity this gentleman and his loyal band have received with the release of the impressive “Infinite Entanglement” trilogy. That’s right; the band invested a decent amount of time and following an already announced (and tight) timetable, released one part per year, leaving “The Redemption Of William Black” to be the final chapter of the story. This leaves me with a bittersweet taste because, following the band’s doings to fulfill this obligation since 2016, it feels like both the musicians and the fans saw this through the end.

Hatriot - From Days Unto Darkness

Hatriot - From Days Unto Darkness

It is true that I was not expecting to see HATRIOT keeping the lights on, after Zetro had announced that he would leave the band. Of course, Steve Souza did the logical move since EXODUS is a full-time job and, I am sure, he did not want to hold back HATRIOT. After all, the Souza name remained in the band, with Cody and Nick doing the honors. The question, of course, is how would this lineup would do in the studio and what changes one should be expecting in the third full length record. In a baker’s dozen days, everyone will be able to get a definitive answer as “From Days Unto Darkness” will be released to the public. In the meantime, you can check what I think and prime your opinion accordingly...

Striker - Play To Win

Striker - Play To Win

STRIKER have become a consistent band releasing albums in a yearly basis, but this has not affected the quality, because sometimes quantity does not see eye to eye with quality. “Play To Win” is the band’s sixth studio album and if you spend a couple of minutes observing the cover artwork and notice its color palette, you should be able to understand that there is boatload of '80s nostalgia infused in the ten tracks. No, I am not saying that STRIKER have gone on the reviving-old-stuff wagon, because to me, it seems these Canadians are just playing by their influences.

Ross The Boss - By Blood Sworn

Ross The Boss - By Blood SwornSince the gorgeous tour edition of “By Blood Sworn” was recently added in my vinyl collection, I decided to do what I should have done a year ago. I hate to admit that I missed my chance to review the album once it got out, but the gods of Metal offered me a way to redeem myself with this edition. After the rather useless background story, it is about time to see what ROSS THE BOSS came up with, eight years after “Hailstorm”.
