| ||Challenger Turned to Dust|
Encouraging EP of traditional metal with speedy moments by the Slovenians who need to work on making their songwriting a bit less formulaic. However, the guitars on here are great and so is the level of energy.
| ||Smoulder Times of Obscene Evil and Wild Daring||3.8|
| ||Sandstorm Time To Strike|
These guys are, justifiably, advertised as '80s heavy metal but what draws me to their music, is the UFO elements in the riffing (just listen to the beginning of "Hymn to the Hell Knights" which brings to mind UFO's "Rock Bottom). Apart from that, they have a good sense of melody and have created a cool little horror atmosphere which blends really well with the instrumentation. Great effort.
| ||Traveler (CAN) Traveler||3.8|
| ||Midnight Dice Midnight Dice|
Midnight Dice consists of former Satan's Hallow members minus their main songwriter, and it suffices to say that the remaining members landed on their feet. Their debut EP contains engaging traditional metal with hard rocking elements and great female vocals.
| ||Manowar The Final Battle I|
As much as it pains me to admit, The Final Battle I is an overall poor effort. Most of it is not offensive, with "March of the Heroes Into Valhalla" being a nice introduction to the album, "Blood and Steel" an average track, representative of modern Manowar, and "Sword of the Highlands" an okay track I guess. But combine the mediocrity of these songs with the awful "You Shall Die Before I Die" which features vocals by DeMaio, and what you have is an album that screams lack of inspiration.
| ||Sanhedrin (USA-NY) The Poisoner|
Bringing together '70s heavy rock with doom metal and various other elements, The Poisoner is a diverse affair which combines engaging songwriting with great female vocals.
