| ||Sorcerer The Crowning of the Fire King||4.2|
| ||OZ Fire in the Brain|
An undisputed '80s metal cult classic, Fire in the Brain stands in the middle of NWOBHM and the point where bands were starting to play a faster version called speed metal, of course. OZ's sound might sound slightly typical (or even dated) now, but back then their dark image and instrumentation which was similar to that of early-Grave Digger, early-Running Wild and Accept with a touch of Mercyful Fate must have been pretty cool. Interesting info: The hand on the cover belongs to Tomas Borje Forsberg who is none other than Quorthon. His father (Stig Borje Forsberg) produced the first OZ albums.
| ||Ruler Rise to Power|
It is such a rewarding experience to stumble upon a band who wears its influences on its sleeves but doesn't copy them blatantly. Ruler play traditional metal which is based on Iron Maiden, early-Queensryche, early-Fates Warning, Heavy Load and Warlord but might even bring to mind Rainbow or even Yngwie Malmsteen (guitar work on "...In Conspiracy"). The songwriting is solid which makes the album feel shorter than the 48 minutes it lasts.
| ||Necromandus Necromandus|
Necromandus is a highly interesting case of a band almost like countless others who had the talent but never made it. The significant difference, however, is that these guys finally made it almost 45 years after releasing their unofficial debut. Formed in the '70s, they were discovered and supported by legendary guitarist Tony Iommi who helped them record Orexis of Death and actually played on the album's title track. Necromandus is actually the band's original debut even though it features only the original drummer since every other member of the initial lineup has passed. Featuring a beautiful album cover, the LP consists
| ||Attic Sanctimonious|
This is basically King Diamond worship without the solid songwriting, the hooks and amazing stories that KD has released through the years. In addition, the album's duration is way to long for its own good. Overall, the album is not bad and the instrumentation is nice but if we take under consideration the extreme similarity factor, this is just above an average effort.
| ||The Wizards (ESP) Full Moon in Scorpio|
One of the best proto-metal albums I had the pleasure of checking lately. The band's influences vary from KISS and Thin Lizzy to Pentagram and Danzig. The level of songwriting is very high and keeps the listener's attention at a very high level throughout the album's duration.
| ||Stygian Fair Into the Coven|
Into the Coven is an encouraging slab of traditional heavy metal with some solid guitar playing but overall is raw but not in a good way. Stygian Fair would need to improve significantly in order to release something truly worthwhile.

|Sabrutin I'm fine. A bit stressed, physically and mentally, but the things I'm doing now are all worth fighting for. Necromandus' debut offers some genuine fun, it may not be a masterpiece but an album like that was needed. It's a true rocker!|
|Sabrutin Hey Mano, how you been? I Just checked some random tracks off the new Necromandus album after seeing it in your profile. It's very pleasant with some cool hard prog leanings. I'm loving the final song at the moment. Great stuff!|
