SATHANAS - Necrohymns Review



SATHANAS - Necrohymns

Transcending Obscurity Records


Front man Paul Tucker does a good job of songwriting here, producing some pretty intensive blackened thrash metal. I'd say it's a step-up from 'Worship the Devil'. It's stronger in the riff department and production. The length of the album is a little short though, spewing out eight songs and thirty-two minutes in length. But that doesn't take away from the sick music/lyrical concepts this record has to offer. Every song is good, solid and riff-wise the music is positively solid. The production sound is a bit raw, but by thought and design.  The vocals are screaming as with past releases and duplicated. This one is even with more aggression.

SILENT WINTER- The War Is Here EP Review



SILENT WINTER- The War Is Here EP

Independent


SILENT WINTER is a very melodic/symphonic epic power metal band from Volos, Greece.

This is a five track EP CD with an intro, 3 melodic power metal anthems and a theatrical outro.

The band delivers high energy power/speed metal in the vein of bands such as HELLOWEEN and STRATOVARIUS. Imagine great guitar work, excellent guitar solos, a solid rhythm section, fantastic and decisive work on keyboards, with a super talented young singer (Mike Livas of FORTRESS UNDER SIEGE, RHODIUM, KEEPERS ΟF JERICHO, MAIDENANCE (IRON MAIDEN tribute band)) on top.

This EP is a very tasty appetizer for the upcoming full album in 2019 and with a nice promotional video made by Bob Katsionis, the band makes the best moves into building a name and reputation.

The sound production and mixing are superb, as you can hear every instrument properly and in place, also there are great lyrics (social messages). I love the digipack packaging of this release and the depressive yet metal as hell artwork.

Condemned AD “Time Waits for No One” EP



Swedish Thrash Metal band Condemned AD released their new EP «Time Waits for No One». The EP was recorded in "4 White Walls Studio", and mix/mastered by Karlo Testen.

The band was formed in 1989 at Skoghall, Sweden by Mikael Klecken (vocal/guitar). In 1992 the band released their debut EP «Until death ends it all» but after some years playing together in 1994 the band split up, because Mikael Klecken had a major depressive disorder. In 2015 a good friend of the band asked Mikael  if they could temporary rejoin for his 40 birthday and do a gig at a local Rockbar, and they did with the new members - Magnus Elvsen (bass) and Sebastian Elmlund (guitar).

GIANLUCA D’ALESSIO – Sunrise Markets Review



GIANLUCA D’ALESSIO – Sunrise Markets

Independent


Ο βιρτουόζος κιθαρίστας από την Ιταλία, κύριος GIANLUCA D’ALESSIO είναι εδώ με την καινούρια του κυκλοφορία με τίτλο «Sunrise Markets». Πρόκειται για μια κυκλοφορία οργανικής – ορχηστρικής μουσικής η οποία αποτελείται από 9 συνθέσεις του ως άνω κιθαρίστα. Από τις συνθέσεις αυτές μόνο το τραγούδι «Drawning Borders» είναι με στίχους, το οποίο είναι μια πολύ  όμορφη και συναισθηματική μπαλάντα που φυσικά μιλάει για ερωτική απογοήτευση. Πιστεύω πάντως ότι αυτό το τραγούδι άνετα μπορεί να γίνει επιτυχία.

FEELAMENT - Hate Delivery Review



FEELAMENT - Hate Delivery

Independent


This metalcore/groove/metal band has been in existence since 2014 but have not released a full-length album till this year.  I was quite impressed by it, very catchy. With Maria on vocals, she kills it with her screaming and some clean voice but mostly just hate. The guitars are like SOULFLY/MESHUGGAH and their vibe seemed to me like that of THE AGONIST when Alissa was with the band.
