Mystic Braves The Great Unknown
Solid, but passable garage rock that still fulfills its purpose, albeit with no peaking moments whatsoever. Stream:
Royal Jester Breaking the Chains
When a power metal band kicks off its sophomore album with a tune called "Power Metal Never Dies", then you know that band means business, albeit that's not necessarily equivalent to disrupting the said genre from the ground up. Stream:
Super Stereo 3
Greece's Super Stereo are whimsically fronted by a great vocalist/lyrical writer whose elaborate vocal lines and native lyrics, are up to speed with the struggling mentality of most of his compatriots during the better part of the '10s; His band mates hardly fall behind instrumentally, namely the cool, breaking-no-sweat, pseudo-random, rock-sub-genres pivoting, which leverages the inherent lack of originality. Favorite tracks: All tracks have their distinct say about the album but Άσχημοι Δρόμοι and Σκυλιά stand as first among equals. Stream:
Eternity's End Unyielding
Melodic (as in heavy/power/progressive) metal is back on the rise in Europe, and Eternity's End debut album a couple of years back, is merely one of an ever increasing array of compelling signs that justify such a claim. Their sophomore album is different from its predecessor in that it has shed all the somewhat experimental elements (extreme/groove metal) evidenced therein. Therefore it uniformly relies, sound/arrangements-wise, on Euro heavy/power metal and much much less on more extreme metal genres (the thrashy "Necromantic Worship" and "Beyond the Gates of Salvation"), bearing no real standout songs whatsoever. That said, the perceived i
Refuge (DE2) Solitary Men
Rage anno 1987-1993 (judging from the superiority of Missing Link relative to the rest of Rage albums, this is probably the band's best lineup assembled), reunites for a trip down memory lane by means of recording new songs. Well the trio has nothing to prove to anyone, but if Missing Link is downright classic material, Solitary Men is merely a solid tribute to the aforementioned era, plus Refuge get additional credit for not trying too hard to sound like they did in their heyday. Stream:
Reign Destitute
Destitute is one of the most interesting releases of this year with respect to the tech end of thrash and its amalgamation with other tech metal dialects, and rock in general. On the surface, Reign's debut full-length is reminiscent of an array of attributes. On occasion, rhythm guitars come real close to the craftsmanship of players like Jon Schaffer or James Hetfield, but the outfit's axemen draw inspiration mainly from dedicated tech metal bands, like Death, Coroner, Cynic, Megadeth, Nevermore etc. On their end, rhythm section, vocals and sound work (!!) do not fall behind on the said influences making for material of enduring rep
The Bevis Frond We're Your Friends, Man
This is The Bevis Frond doing what The Bevis Frond does best for so many years in a row, namely solid, if a bit passable, classic/indie rock. Stream:
