Beast In Black Berserker
There are albums that are silly but fun, catchy, well-written and have substance. This is cheesy, uninspired and over the top music that might be good for the Eurovision contest.

Witchcryer Cry Witch
In a few years' time, I will be expecting to see how many of these female fronted occult retro rock bands will still be alive and kicking. Personal opinion, not too many. The atmosphere is nice, the vocals are good and nothing sounds bad about Cry Witch. Those who adore Avatarium and Jex Thoth will probably enjoy Witchcryer, but at the end of the day this is just another nice female fronted occult retro rock LP with not much to add to an already saturated genre.

Greta Van Fleet From the Fires
The band's biggest influence is Led Zeppelin and they certainly don't hide that while their singer does - for the most part of the album - his best impression of Robert Plant. However, the songwriting is solid and the album is quite fun if you don't mind the fact that the overall product is derivative. Enjoyable but with limited replay value.

Hazy Sea Cargo Incognito
Fuzzy stoner rock with a few Greek folk melodies and a strong '70s vibe in the guitar playing. However, it almost feels that these guys will go as far as the inspired playing of their lead guitarist takes them as, overall, their songwriting isn't anything to write home about.

Evertale The Great Brotherwar
European power metal with epic tendencies and influences from Grave Digger, some Running Wild and mainly Blind Guardian. Essentially, the album is very similar to Blind Guardian's first two LPs without the LOTR references, Hansi's amazing vocals and Guardian's solid songwriting. Nevertheless, if you're tired of jamming Battalions of Fear and Follow the Blind, give this one a shot and you will not regret it.

Magick Touch Blades, Chains, Whips & Fire
Entertaining hard rock which ranges from Thin Lizzy territory ("The Great Escape") to '80s hair metal and sleaze ("Siren Song"). The cover art gave me slightly different vibes than the ones contained in the LP as I expected a more epic approach from the Norwegian power trio which is only evident on the album's title track. Overall, the level of songwriting isn't that high in order to provide some replay value and the loud production - a mistake that a lot of modern hard rock bands do - does not help either. Overall, an enjoyable listen but not much more even though there is potential.

Serenity Lionheart
Symphonic power metal concept album about Richard the Lion-Hearted which is fairly well-written and performed but too cheesy for my liking. The vocalist might bring to your mind Tony Kakko (Sonata Arctica) and the band can definitely create really good melodies which unfortunately border on Eurovision some times. All in all, a good listen but expected more.
