The Southern River Band Rumour & Innuendo
Feel-good hard rock by a group of guys who have a knack for writing great melodies. Nothing new under the sun but this is very well-performed and perfect when you're in the mood for some sweet hard rock.

Andi Deris Come In From The Rain
Andi Deris' solo debut contains mostly hard rock with only a couple tracks of bringing to mind Helloween. The album works better on its more melodic/AOR moment rather than the heavier ones but, overall, it is quite enjoyable.

Midnight Force Gododdin
Although Midnight Force's debut seemed promising, this feels quite disappointing. It's almost as if these guys haven't developed at all, as Gododdin's traditional metal is very generic, undeveloped and quite sloppy. Yes, the atmosphere is genuinely vintage, there are some nice guitars here and there, and when these guys manage to make things click ("Over the Phantom Sea"), the outcome is pretty good. But, overall, the album left me with nothing to remember and no desire to revisit it.

Oasis (What's the Story) Morning Glory?
Used to hate this one back in the day mainly because of how overplayed "Wonderwall" and "Don't Look Back in Anger" were, and also as a metalhead you're supposed to shit on albums like this one and bands like Oasis. Love it today, as it contains great tunes but also because it's one of those albums that transport me so efficiently in the mid-'90s.

Dame Silu de Mordomoire Ordeals
Atmospheric dungeon synth that blends medieval, dark ambient and new age elements. Very engaging songwriting and an overall admirable work for a debut.

Borg The Triumph of Spring
Even though this is categorized under dungeon synth, it is more like a solid slab of medieval music, like garas has written. At times, it brings to mind Aion by Dead Can Dance, while on others, Blackmore's Night's renaissance stuff. What makes it really enjoyable is that it sounds really honest and regardless of genre, this is a great listen if you're into the aforementioned bands.

Blazon Stone Hymns of Triumph and Glory
This is as fun as it gets. As you can easily understand by the band's name, this is pure Running Wild worship and it's so well-done that even Rock 'n' Rolf would be happy with it. Jamming Hymns of Triumph and Glory, watching Black Sails and playing Monkey Island 2 is a day well-spent.
