favorite bands
Howling Giant Howling Giant
Considering the low budget conditions that gave birth to Howling Giant's self titled EP, the stoner/doom rock contained therein is pretty solid and entertaining. Stream:
Sepiroth Uninvolved
On their sophomore album, Sepiroth from Holland draw inspiration from the war in former Yugoslavia during the early '90s, and they coat their narrative with excellent old school death metal that steps on both banks of the Atlantic Ocean. Even in these dire times that the music industry is going through, it is hard to believe that this is an independent release. Favorite track: Breadline Massacre. Stream:
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.
