SIRIUS – Wings of Fire EP Review



SIRIUS – Wings of Fire EP

Independent

In my opinion the Greek metal scene the last 10 years has shown a tremendous progress and it has offered us some really great bands and releases. It seems, though, that the Greek metal fans are still not totally convinced and they don’t support the scene as much as they can. Of course they have made a great progress on that as well. The reasons for this don’t entirely fall on the lack of belief in the local scene by the Greek fans, but it also has to do with the attitude of some musicians that with only one release (usually a demo) adopt a rock star attitude which really doesn’t help. On the other hand there are bands that work silently and are focused on what they do and I think that this effort works on their favor. I think that SIRIUS belong to that category.

PAOLA PELLEGRINI LEXROCK - Lady to Rock Review



PAOLA PELLEGRINI LEXROCK - Lady to Rock

Red Cat Records/7Hard


I have already presented to you Paola and her band some time ago through my webzine and I am really glad to see that she remembered me and asked me to present her new album too under the title “Lady to Rock” which I have to say describes perfectly Paola and what she wants to achieve through her music.

FARSEER – Fall before the Dawn Review



FARSEER – Fall before the Dawn

Killer Metal Records


The name of the band made me think they are fans of the fantasy literature since we meet the word “Farseer” either in the Warhammer 40,000 universe or in “The Farseer Trilogy” which is a series of novels written by fantasy author Robin Hobb. This is a good question for an interview for the band to tell me how they inspired their band name. Their name and of course the cover of their debut album makes you think that FARSEER are inspired by fantasy topics, but their lyrics have to do more with the real world of how it is and how we can survive it and forge our own path and live our life in our own way. Yep, cool lyrics and into the heavy metal philosophy I think.

SCIENCE OF DISORDER – Private Hell Review



SCIENCE OF DISORDER – Private Hell

Fastball Music


SCIENCE OF DISORDER are from Switzerland and they might have released only two full length albums but they really have a long career in the metal scene of their country. The birth of the band was in 1989 under the name SOULLESS in 1989 which they kept until 2011. In 2011 they changed their name into SCIENCE OF DISORDER and they released their debut album entitled “Heart, Blood and Tears…” and 7 years later in 2018 they are back with their sophomore release entitled “Private Hell”.

EXILED – Ghost in the Winter Review



EXILED – Ghost in the Winter

Killer Metal Records


This is an unexpected come back. I had the chance to purchase the last album of the band in 2007 under the title “Blood Sea” and after that I haven’t heard from them until now. So, it was kind of a good surprise for me that EXILED are back with a new release.

EMERALD SUN – Under the Curse of Silence Review



EMERALD SUN – Under the Curse of Silence

Fastball Music


The story of EMERALD SUN goes back in 1998 when they started in Thessaloniki, Greece.  In 1999 they introduced themselves as a talented and full of passion power metal band which made me believe that these guys deserved to move on with their career. After all on stage they have always given very convincing performances. So, I am really happy to see that they still have the same passion for metal music and they still fight and create new songs. I think this warrior spirit they have resulted in the release of their fifth full length album from the German label Fastball Music which carries the title “Under the Curse of Silence”.

Canada is one of the countries that have a great metal scene. I think everyone who listens to metal music has at least one band from there he appreciates a lot. THE ORDER OF CHAOS is a female fronted metal band that hails from there and if you read our webzine then you will remember that we have presented here their previous albums as wel. This time the band decided to release a 3 track EP which consists of the following songs: 1. Night Terror, 2. False Security and 3. New World Order.
