\r\nSecond album from this exceptional band from Chile. Mar De Grises is perhaps the only group that can combine with so much easiness Doom/Death Metal elements with the many Progressive passages and Post Metal drawings. Draining The Waterheart is the absolute continuity of The Tatterdemalion Express but in order to be sincere in the previous album, there were times that make me feel tired. These moments exist also here but they are less and good elements is what finally remains in our mind.

The new effort by the Italians “Cemetary Rockers” L Impero Delle Ombre, reached me through this split 7’’ release, along with the other Italians Bub Tribe. Both bands features on track each on this release.

At last, the first full length release by Jex Thoth has reached me. The first effort by the band has been released under the name “Totem” back in 2007, and was the selftitled ep. After this release they changed their name to Jex Thoth and released a split 7’’ with the lengedary Pagan Altar. And At last this year the band released their first full length release, via I Hate Records again.

\r\nSadness, desperation, sentiment. Melody, brutality, darkness. Shuddering and afterwards again sadness. More strong and more intense. Emotion that Moonspell returned with a masterpiece. Emotion that there are still bands that feel and the inhexaustible inspiration will always follow them. The waiting therefore finished and Night Eternal reached in our hands. Many people admit this to be the best album of the year. Personally I do not have no reason for disagreeing. Absolutely no one. No one absolutely.

\r\nMetal Blade is leaving me speechless lately with its releases.

\r\nI remember 3 years ago I had the chance to listen to the demo of a band from Salonica, Ten Rail Cell, and I was really satisfied with their music. I was glad when I put this demo on my player but after the first track I realised that only one song was studio recorded and the other 3 were recorded on a live performance. I have to confess I’m not a big fan of live recordings. So I’d like to concentrate on the studio recorded song that sounds really promissing.

\r\nBone To Rust is a new band from Keratsini and in order to be sincere I ignored completely their existence. Being lucky however, I received this demo that contains 4 tracks and its duration is almost 20 minutes and thanks to this, I understood for another time how many appreciable bands Greece has, not only in the genre of Stoner Rock, but also in general. When I saw the artwork of the Demo my mind went directly to more Core situations. However, I was denied and what I heard really fascinated me.

\r\nThis band\r\ngoes back to 1997 in\r\nGermany.\r\nQuestion Authority is their 3rd album and to\r\nbe honest up to today I didn’t know about them so I can’t say anything about\r\ntheir previous releases.

\r\nWhen Tiamat decide to come out with a new album, then you know that you have to listen to it even if it’s characterized as not so great or even cold. Of course I’m referring to open minded people, concerning their music tastes. You see, Johan Edlund never quenches his thirst and always wants to extend his ideas in new directions, combining various sounds.\r\n

Powers Court exist for 12 years and surely are known to a very limited number of fans that are into classic Power Metal. They are from the US and The Red Mist Of Endenmore is their third full-lenght album. The group tries to do something unique which in my opinion, if it was more well presented it would be beautiful. They try to present Power/Progressive Metal that is escorted by a darker black atmosphere, something I believe doesn’t work out for two reasons.
