Just when you think every genre of metal has sprouted, there is another genre to rise up and join the masses. After having listened to Metsutan, the third album from Japanese metallers, Whispered, I fell in love with this genre.
The album pictured above has been out for while, but is being re-released in a cassette format; which is weird to me, but if it hadn’t happened, Final Sign wouldn’t be our band of the week. The band consists of accomplished musicians who were sitting on songs that needed to be heard.
Sometimes bands are truly a group effort, sometimes they revolve around one individual (a la Annihilator and Jeff Waters). Paradox is in the latter camp anchored by singer, guitarist, and songwriter Charly Steinhauer. Is Steinhauer up to the task yet again to deliver some quality Metal?
If you’re one of those “niche” fans that tends to listen to the same genre/sub-genre and pretty much don’t have any expectations because you think you know what you’re getting into, we’ve got something for you to wrap your inquisitive minds around.
For almost a quarter of a century the melodic yet heavy hitting metal of Jaded Heart has been blessing the speakers of listeners worldwide. We we’re pretty excited about the new album “Guilty by Design” and when we got a listen we became ecstatic.
Newcomers Defecto (not sure I get the name), hailing from Denmark, serve up a brand of Metal encompassing Power and Prog with a bit of a modern approach. How does their mix on Excluded – from Power Prog Records – stand up?
A few years back, I was introduced to Lanfear via their outstanding album This Harmonic Consonance. Based on my enjoyment of that release, I was definitely looking forward to the band’s new album, The Code Inherited on Pure Legends Records. So, how is Lanfear doing 4 years later?
