\r\nFour years after “Death Cult Armageddon”, Dimmu Borgir return with “In Sorte Diaboli”. Already by the inaugural song, “The Serpentine Offering”, it becomes obvious, that Dimmu Borgir came back with their best, perhaps, work since the epoch of “Enthrone Darkness Triumphant”.
\r\n“The Steel Is Back” is only the third release of Crying Steel emanating from the neighbouring country of Italy although they exist as a band since 1983 (!!!). In the substance it is an “abuse” of Judas Priest’s riffs that Crying Steel by themselves report as their more basic influence. The 80’s heavy metal, that those Italians play, doesn’t have anything appreciable to present or to add in the existing metal scene. The final result can be characterized, pretty leniently, at least incurious.
\r\nCrusader emanates from Belgium and maybe over there they happen to know about waffles and beers, but as it is also proved by "Skin Clad", they haven’t got a clue about metal! This is a bad example of metal (God forbid!!!) with “nerveless” vocals, mediocre up to bad compositions, leniently idiotic lyrics and a production that sucks. The thoughtless use of keys just contributes in the whole “dullness” and the bad impression that "Skin Clad" causes to the listener.
\r\n“Eleven Burial Masses” is a live album of Cradle Of Filth, and which combines the first cd “Live Bait for the Dead” and the “Heavy, Left-Handed and Candid” DVD, both of which were recorded on 14 April 2001 in the Rock City of Nottingham. Consequently it covers the Cradle Of Filth’s discography up to “Midian”. The truth is, that I can’t comprehend the expediency of such a release in 2007, since substantially it’s a re-release of some of their older live material, as reported in the beginning.
\r\nAmerican power metalers Cage return with their fourth album, with the title "Hell Destroyer". This is a concept album, that recounts a story through the passage of time, from the crucifixion of Christ up to the establishment of New Order of Things (New World Order), to a demonic invasion on Earth and finally to the resurrection of "Metal Devil", hundred years after the end of the world.
