Lord Vigo Six Must Die
A nice blend of traditional doom metal and NWOBHM with epic tendencies which brings to mind bands like Witchfinder General and Pentagram, i.e. doomy bands with a nice sense of melody and groove. Everything is well-done and the band seems to be on the right path but after listening to this one a couple of times, I have neither the desire to jam it again nor can I remember any riffs or catchy moments. That doesn't mean that the album isn't fun but Lord Vigo should work on their songwriting if they want to create something that will stand the test of time.

Ghost (SWE) Prequelle
Whether you like Ghost or not, their biggest accomplishment is that bands like these guys bring new fans to rock and metal and help those genres remain popular. In terms of music, this is the album of theirs that I enjoyed the most probably due to the strong Blue Oyster Cult elements and the medieval aura because of the subject matter. All in all, a great effort.

Quayde LaHue Day of the Oppressor
Hands down one of the best modern rock bands and albums. Drawing influences from Pentagram, KISS, UFO, Thin Lizzy and Diamond Head, and fronted by a female vocalist who oozes rock, the Washington-based four-piece has to be one of the best kept secrets in heavy rock today. Day of the Oppressor is enough to give you an idea about those guys? energetic, infectious and superbly performed brand of music. When Quayde LaHue become the next best thing in the underground rock scene, remember where you first read about them.

Manacle (CAN) No Fear to Persevere
Solid debut EP by these Canadians whose speed metal brings to mind early Fates Warning and Queensryche. The songwriting is really strong even though a couple of the songs could do with a bit of trimming while the vocalist might bring Michael Kiske to your mind. The production is also very well-done with a genuine retro feeling and I love the guitar tone. Overall, this is really promising.

Night Flowers Wild Notion
Listening to Wild Notion while a gentle summer breeze blows in through my open window is nothing short of a complete experience. Or is Wild Notion that summer breeze that carries with it images of past summers and summers to come? Night Flowers' debut is a solid dream pop affair not only because of its instrumentation and songwriting, but mostly due to the images, smells and feelings it evokes so vividly. And just like the summer, the album ends before you know it.

Deadly Blessing Ascend From The Cauldron
US metal with nice riffs and air-raid vocals that reeks of old-school. The music is somewhere between speed, thrash and early power metal which means it is very energetic with some epic and fantasy tendencies but there is always a sense of melody. Overall, great album but can't see myself returning to it very often.

Thomas Nation Battle of the Grumbles
A somewhat unsuccessful and trite effort of blending folk and dream pop which results in a rather flat, unspectacular and plodding album. The idea is nice but unfortunately the execution is poor.
