Junoon Azadi
if there is a band which does need recognition from the Indian subcontinent, Junoon is your likely bet. blending rock guitars and bluesy vocals with eastern elements like the use of tablas (traditional south Asian hand drums), raga-inspired melodies, traditional Pakistani folk music, and Eastern inspired poetry.
The band were one of the first bands in that area to insist on playing live music where most music was sampled and programmed synth pop. they where Heavily influenced by Led Zeppelin.

i have heard all maiden records form start to the end... but somehow nothing.. i mean nothing comes close to this.. the whole feel and the guitar work by smith/Murray... lay down structured paths into each song.. i heard that they don't pay it live as its too technical and hard to pay on stage.

Alice in Chains Black Gives Way to Blue
black gives way to blue is alice in chains through and through....
the song composition is beautiful, aggressive and has that sink of melody which only this band can create.... devall is brilliant and i am well impressed by the main man Cantrell who still has what it takes to fill an album with immense and mesmerizing riffs . songs roll one after another in flashes and i`ll be listning to this for a very long time to come
Amoral Reptile Ride
An excellent album about a band known little about. good musicianship. its more of a cock rock - meet death metal situation here. you`ll get the point if you ever watch any of there videos. but the band is pretty good at keeping it tight
Antoine Dufour Existence
Antoine Dufour is an exception in brilliant freestyle guitarist league and ever since he has leaped into the candy rat bandwagon, he has not producing some of the finest sounds you can make out of that hollow body.

Dark Lunacy Forget Me Not
this is my third listen to this one and the guitar, bass and drum work are really really good . The recording quality of the album is immaculate . the use of other instruments like violin etc, really do add to the atmosphere beautifully. overall the only negative aspect of this album are the vocals. Categorically lower standard to most other band in the genre and can get annoying at times. (again thats me)
But overall i think the band does have its own unique blend. Brilliant musicians and one can really feel that this is coming out of italy. My first reaction after listening to some of the songs where like. "fuck me , if only godfather went a bit metal". :D

The Faceless Planetary Duality
Faceless is such an amazing band with busting talent, this album is mind blowing in complexity and heaviness but after listening to this record around 10 times i think overall the band went did go a bit downhill with this album. i think its a wee bit generic, at some stages same old cliché death metal riffs used before are recycled over and over again with a dash of difference. it's still a really really good listen, guitarist Micheal Keene band still lays down some fantastic solos and the rest of the band do have their moments. but I did expect a bit more from Planetary duality.. O well there is always the next record. :D

Yyrkoon Occult Medicine
out of all the Yyrkoon albums... this is pretty much my all timer and would recommend it to anyone who wants to know what this band is all about...
IMO i have a lot of bands which sound like Yyrkoon in the genre. the musicianship is pretty average as well. But not a single song here looses its amazing level of momentum which is unshakable from the word go.... you do not loose interest after listening through half of the album... pretty intense :D

3.5 great

Testament The Formation of Damnation
At first... i thought Testament is going to thread water and use a more modern metal approach... But after listening to this.. i was blown out of the water. the band is tight.. the musicianship bar has been raised. Alex Skolnick is back with Testament on this record. Skolnick lays down some fast thrashing on this record. Since his absence Testament was never the same with their guitar work. This has to be one of the finest thrash release for sometime now. everything is top notch.. There are no fillers here... I think they have outdone what i would never have expected of testament to do again after their last few records.... Some Very Very high quality thrash

Conducting from the Grave When Legends Become Dust
Dark Lunacy The Diarist
I decided to get this after the 2003`s Forget me not. The Diarist is a concept album dealing with the Leningrad siege, an event in WWII during which the city of Leningrad (St Petersburg) was blockaded from 1941 to 1944. The record uses the perspective of a woman who writes on her diary a day-by-day account of life in the bombed, isolated city whose inhabitants die of cold and starve, and the Red Army soldiers, young and frightened, carry on a desperate resistance against the German enemy. it is to say that, actually, there is no political theme in The Diarist. The focus here by the band is on suffering, fear, hope and desperation, which fits like a glove.... a must hear for all prog/ melo death/ metal fans.

this album (song) does IMO has more elements than fas.... however after 7 mins into it, i change the song every time. thought it was repetitive and not exactly the next step I hoped they would take.
very dished dashed with the same new ingredients.

the band hasn�t sounded this charged-up in years. Songs like �Sinners Lust� and �Dark Signs� ooze with the kind of riffs that made the genre so irresistible in the first place. This is no-nonsense death metal of the highest order. Through the years, Grave has largely been Lindgren�s show, but the other members make a strong case for themselves here. Ronnie Bergerst?�s driving bass drum and ride cymbal hits rip and tear through the songs with unforgiving abandon. Bassist, Fredrik Isaksson might not drop ultra-technical lines like someone like Alex Webster would, but his runs fall into the arrangements perfectly

Amoral Show Your Colors
WTF happened. One of the best Heavy metal band just went shit.
After Niko and erki's departure, the band now hired Ari Koivunen, Finnish rock singer who rose to fame as the winner of the third series of the Finnish singing competition Idols in 2007.
It looks clear that now, Amoral are playing around his singing rather than him playing around there musical games, which will be pretty disappointing to most amoral fans.
Most songs still have amazing musicianship, but Ari's vocals kills it for me, in particular the slower songs. Listen to it and make up your own mind, i am praying for Niko to come back
