The band See Red from Britain returns with their second effort, their second EP “Rise”
\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.
\r\nThis is no longer war... This is cold-blooded murder! When an album begins like that, then the least that we must wait for is that it will blow up our brains. The abilities of Impaled to create unique Gore moments with a great potion of Death Metal are well known and they are not disputed.
The empire of Kyuss unfortunately no longer exists. However, to our benefit, there are bands which one way or another are related to them. One of them is Hermano, the band of the singer John Garcia which was formed 10 years ago as a project but ended up being a full time band which recently made it in our country. ...Into The Exam Room is their new, third in the row full length release of Hermano and in it everyone can find a different element he or she will like.
\r\n"The Awakening" is the first demo for the Greek Chthonian Alchemy. The band started in early 2006 by Andreas "Denwar" and Grigoris Pavlis and their music is dark/gothic metal in the vein of Rotting Christ, Sentenced and Tiamat. The demo consists only by two tracks.
The Australian Michael Hilder provides us with his first effort under the title“The Storm part One: The Search for The Grail” and it’s about a concept album about the Medieval times, and in specific, is a fantasy tale created by Michael Hilder and probably will be two more albums to come with the same concept.
\r\nHere we have a very hopefull beginning but not something that unique. Swedish Scarpoint are one more band of those who try to combine melodic Death Metal sound with more experimental elements. When I first heard this album I immediatly thought about that great debut album from Engel, also swedish. From those who have heard that particular album we must say that The Silence We Deserve is almost the same with the only difference it doesn’t have that many catchy parts as Absolute Design had, and the tracks aren’t that easy listening.
Unique sound, exceptional work! Pain Principle aren’t at all newbies in the extreme sound. In the past they’ve released two full length albums Until Someone Loves An Eye 1995 and Chronic Rage Disorder 1999 and Waiting For The Flies is their new release out by Blind Prophecy Records. After an atmospheric guitar intro which reminds us of the melodic walkabouts of Pantera hell is unleashed! Well played death metal with many hidden melodic elements while there are also influences of hardcore.
