A Pale Horse Named Death - Uncovered

I still remember how excited I felt the moment A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH announced that they will release their “Uncovered” 7-inch, and that’s because: a) I’m a big sucker for 7’’ releases since most of the times there are some lil’ gems waiting to be discovered, and b) the artists have all the freedom in the world to experiment and try new things, cover their beloved bands and show their influences without having to “fit” inside genres or boxes. But I’m gonna be honest here; seeing the name of THE CURE posing among the two covers APHND did for this EP, was the main and number one reason for my excitement.

Unleash The Archers - Explorers

UNLEASH THE ARCHERS have beeping in my Metal radar for quite a while but I never got a solid chance to check them out. Even though I had checked a couple of songs from “Apex” and liked them, my listening laziness got the best of me... Well, the two-track EP “Explorers” broke this band habit of mine and made me check why these Canadians have gained so much traction with their melodic Metal with strong Power Metal undertones.

Lindsay Schoolcraft - Martyr

The name Lindsay Schoolcraft should be ringing a bell only if you have been following CRADLE OF FILTH, especially during their three awesome album release streak that has been going on since 2015. On the other hand, if you have no idea who Lindsay is, then “Martyr” may as well be a great introduction to her Gothic Rock world as she’s drawing inspiration from bands like LACUNA COIL or EVANESCENCE with the word ‘Gothic’ in bold letters. This means that there is no connection with CRADLE OF FILTH, unless you are one of the few who are aware of the strong Gothic foundations the British band has.

Possessed - Revelations Of Oblivion


The last time POSSESSED released a full length album was 33 years ago and I am sure no one was expecting to get anything new from the legendary frontman Jeff Becerra despite the live shows that have been happening since 2008. These days, skepticism is humanity’s top reaction and it seems looking things through the ‘negativity’ filter is more appealing than anything else. Although, seeing quite a lot of bands “getting back together” for a couple of shows performing an entire album has become the lifeline for a specific Metal scene that unfortunately runs on nostalgia and in some cases on hype. With all this in mind, it is kind of expected to approach “Revelations Of Oblivion” with caution being extremely careful not to get super-excited before the needle has hit the wax.
