WLM Reviews: Gamma Ray – Empire of the Undead

Empire of the Undead on earMusic is a weird (or maybe just different) album especially considering that this is Gamma Ray.  I thought that from the first time I heard it and still do after multiple times through the album.  Is it weird in a Mr. Bungle or Fishbone way?  No – not even close.

WLM Reviews: Brainstorm – Firesoul

You know that feeling you get when your expectations for a particular release are sky high and the band that is subject of your adoration completely lets you down?  You’re crushed, perhaps saddened, maybe even angry.  How about when the opposite happens?

WLM Reviews: Sinbreed – Shadows

Relative newcomers to the German Power Metal scene, Sinbreed, deliver fresh blood to the genre with their uncompromising, melodic Metal.  The band isn’t all that inexperienced, though, with members from legends Blind Guardian (guitarist Marcus Siepen and drummer Frederik Ehmke) and Seventh Avenue (vocalist Herbie Langhans).

Album Review: Kamijo – Symphony of the Vampire

Kamijo is the solo project of the singer of one of Japan’s most popular metal bands today, Versailles. Pushed by their visual kei appearance (the Japanese version of glam but with less leather and more frills and lace), Versailles’s music was a majestic output of symphonic metal backed by impressively precise and melodious guitar...

I have never heard of this young Swedish band, but I guess that’s not too surprising though, as this is the band’s debut effort.

I don’t know much about UK Power Metal band Dark Forest except they’ve been around for a little over a decade and have released two well-received albums prior to this year’s The Awakening.

WLM Reviews – Shadow Host: Apocalyptic Symphony

Shadow Host is a Russian Band that has been around since 1993 and if you haven’t heard of them don’t be embarrassed.  Their international exposure hasn’t been massive, but I will admit when I heard Apocalyptic Symphony for the first time I wondered why.  The world needs to hear about these guys.
