Iron Woods Gods and Men
Pagan metal with a genuine epic atmosphere. There are some great melodies on here but the instrumentation still has an edge which helps Gods and Men avoid becoming extremely cheesy.

Virgin Steele Seven Devils Moonshine
Seven Devils Moonshine is a 5-CD box set which consists of two reissues (The Book Of Burning and Hymns To Victory), and three albums with material recorded in 2017-2018. However, the new material is limited to the first two new albums, as the third one contains re-recordings of Virgin Steele songs with orchestra and some cover versions of classic songs. Now, the Ghost Harvest - Vintage LPs are mostly DeFeis meowing over some piano melodies with only some interesting guitar solos here and there by Pursino. It is sad to see the current state of Virgin Steele, which moves further from the glorious past of the

Sequestered Keep The Vale of Ruined Towers
Well-executed dungeon synth with a strong medieval flavor. There is enough variety to keep the listener's attention and a genuinely epic yet soothing atmosphere. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys Fief.

Venom Storm The Gates
Came into Storm The Gates expecting very little but still, this is very underwhelming.

If after this one you want to jam, for some reason, something that resembles Venom and is not awful, Venom Inc. is a better alternative.

Rosslyn Soul in Sanctuary
Much respect to these young fellas for trying to play pure traditional heavy metal. You can feel that they are really trying and they have also nailed the element of creating a convincing atmosphere of mystique. However, apart from those two, there aren't really much more going on in their favor. The songwriting sounds like a simpler version of Mercyful Fate with some hints of Running Wild, and their performance leaves much to be desired. As a result, the overall outcome is somewhat amateurish but not in a good way. Nonetheless, if they really work on their craft, improve their songwriting and add some good guitar solos, we might have somethi

Adamantis Thundermark
Honest traditional metal EP that reveals some potential for this US outfit. The epic touches are nicely done and the songwriting is good enough to keep the listener's attention. Better songwriting, vocals and guitar solos would help but this is a promising debut EP.

Whyte Diamond Scream in the Dark
Very encouraging debut EP by these youngsters. Their NWOBHM brings to my mind the latest Enforcer album as it has a dark/melancholic vibe, probably due to the vocal style. The twin guitars are well-done and I am certain that, with time, these guys can be even better.
