WLM Reviews: Thomsen – Unbroken

I tend not to like bands that are named after a single member. They usually turn into exhibitions of technical wankery or just don’t have the feel of what a true band should sound like.

Winterage – The Harmonic Passage

This is the truest Symphonic Album ever I have reviewed on We Love Metal. Heavily influenced by orchestral and classical symphonic music such as Beethoven , Bach and Vivaldi to Nightwish, Fairyland, Haggard, Elvenking and many more metal acts, Italian sextet Winterage recently released their debut full-length album titled, The Harmonic Passage.

WLM Reviews: Blind Guardian – Beyond the Red Mirror

For some reason, Blind Guardian’s previous albums never really did much for me. I just didn’t get it. Maybe I was not impressed with the fanboyism I equated with love for the Germans. That has all changed with Beyond the Red Mirror from Nuclear Blast.

WLM Reviews: Wind Rose – Wardens of the West Wind

Fantasy, battle and conquest are Wind Rose’s story and their second album Wardens of the West Wind is its embodiment. The fantasy of bands such as Fairyland, intense riffing of Symphony X, all powered by the battle-spirit energy of your favourite folk metal bands is Wind Rose’s blend of traditional sounds.
