\r\nMarkus Grosskopf doesn’t need introduction. According to the story, during some beer-drinking, Markus decided to create a Project in collaboration with other bass players that would be based on what else.... the bass.
\r\n2 Lucifers is a new band in the area of extreme sound which was formed in 2002. The album "In The Name Of..." is their debut album from Pulverised Records. The first thing that impressed me was the fact that there are 18 songs and the duration of the album is only 33 minutes. When we hear the album, however, we understand that this duration is absolutely comprehensible, as the style of the music refers to songs which are of little duration. 21 Lucifers combines in a very good way Death and Black Metal sound with Thrash elements, something like Carnal Forge.
\r\n3HM is an instrumental band, and “Three Headed Monster” is an album that includes various musical elements, such as power/thrash to death and even prog metal. In other words, it includes everything, even though the influences from Metallica, Megadeth and Iron Maiden are a bit more obvious. The guitar parts are a bit louder than the other instruments, to a degree that they almost “cover” the rest of the music.
\r\nΠαλιÎς καραβÎ¬νες απÏŒ τη ΣουηδÎ¯α οι In Aeternum. Σαν μπÎ¬ντα δεν Îχουν\r\nνα αποδεÎ¯ξουν κÎ¬τι.
\r\nSo… this is Hostal Handshake from Athens.Listening to their first album “Hellish” I found myself surpised in the most positive way. First of all Hostal Handshake sounds equal to foreign bands like Kyuss, Monster Magnet or Spiritual Beggars.

\r\nΤο προηγοÏμενο album των ΣουηδÏŽν Satariel Î®ταν\r\nÎνα τυπικÏŒ μελωδικÏŒ Death Metal δισκÎ¬κι, χωρÎ¯ς κÎ¬τι το ιδιαÎ¯τερο.
\r\nAbout a year ago, Ronny Milianowicz, drummer of Dionysus, leaves the group in order to try different musical paths. With the addition of the bass player (also in Dionysus) Nobby Noberg, Toya Johansson on the guitars and Jan Thore Grefstad (Highland Glory) on vocals, and with Jens Bogren on the production (Dionysus, Hammerfall, Symphony X etc), they release their first album, titled "In shadows lost from the brave". It is a Power metal album, with many "dark" parts, which differentiates it from the cheerful feeling that a solid power metal album can give you.
Zandem is a project by Alan Kelly, known from his “Shy” days and the Greek guitarist Babis Kaisas. The selftitled cd I got here is a demo CD with 10 Melodic Hard Rock / AOR tracks in it.
\r\nTen tracks composed by Babis Kaisas, who despite the songwriting plays also the Rhythm and some Lead licks in this Demo CD, all the other instruments played by Mr. Kelly, as well as the vocals.
