favorite bands
Amnesis Welcome to Oblivion
Welcome to Oblivion is a solid slab of contemporary metal in terms of song writing and sound, yet Amnesis need to find the formula that will grant them entrance to the set of outfits with a truly distinct sound. Stream:
Angelus Apatrida Hidden Evolution
On their fifth observation, Angelus Apatrida refine the straightforward thrash of the previous affair and come up with a great album which stands a few steps below from everything they've done in the past (especially Clockwork)
Galactic Superlords Eagle
German vintage rock outfit Galactic Superlords have made a decent start with the Eagle EP, however there's much better retro rock out there. Stream/"name your place" download:
FireWolfe We Rule the Night
What drives Firewolfe in We Rule the Night is that characteristic brand of hard rocking metal introduced in the late '80s by bands like Dokken, Lynch Mob and the like. The band consists of really good players, whereas the vocals are on point with the genre's core ethics. The only thing that subtracts merit from the album is that everything therein has been heard before, but I would gladly see the band live, if I had the chance. Favorite track: We Rule The Night
Blind Guardian Battalions of Fear
I always (and erroneously) think that the first four Blind Guardian albums came out in the late '90s (where the Euro power metal scene was fully developed) and I'm always amazed every time I realize that the Germans invented a sound of their own during the late '80s and the first years of the '90s... While Battalions of Fear carries the inherent ills of a debut album, there are 3-4 tracks that show a band of a distinct character.
Trial (SWE) Vessel
2015 is no more than a month in, but I just know that this album of barbaric heavy metal will wind up being one of the best of this year. I mean, it's like... Where was this band hiding all this time??? On their sophomore album, Trial from Sweden are all about '80s heavy/speed metal for the most part, but that does not stop them from straying to doom, progressive and even black metal (the guitars), without turning their music into a spaghetti incident. Their vocalist, a crossbreed between Harry "The Tyrant" Conclin, King Diamond and Kai Hansen, is cracking the whip throughout the album, along with the rest of the band, namely the guitarists w
SwampGoat The Omega Syndicate
If in need of solid and properly produced drone/doom metal, SwampGoat's debut LP is a solid deal, even though the band sticks to the norm of the previously mentioned genres more closely that necessary. Stream/"name your price" download:
