EISENHAUER – Horse of Hell EP
One of the pleasures that I get from the metal scene is the discovery of new bands, especially if they move in the genres I like. I also have to say that I am a big fan of the German metal scene and EISENHAUER from Germany was a surprise for me, because I had never listened to them before.

SEPULTURA – Schizophrenia
This is probably the most thrash oriented release the band has ever released, and brutal too. The guitars reflect their ingenuity in songwriting structure. A lot of tremolo picking kind of like “Beneath the Remains” and “Arise” before the total and utter fall of the band. This one is about as heavy as its follow-up, though not as catchy. “Beneath the Remains” remains to be my favorite from the band but this one is not far behind. It’s an ingenious release. I like the lyrics as well.
