Ο δρόμος της δόξας

Ο δρόμος της δόξας

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"Ο δρόμος της δόξας" είναι ένα βιβλίο που είχα αγοράσει στην ηλικία των 11 - 12 χρονών. Φανατικός λάτρης της επιστημονικής φαντασίας και διψούσα να διαβάζω για περιπέτειες στο διάστημα. Ενώ, λοιπόν, ξεκίνησα να το διαβάζω, δεν το τελείωσα ποτέ και και κατόπιν το έχασα. Παρ' όλα αυτά πάντα το είχα στο νου μου. Τον Δεκέμβρη, λοιπόν, που μας πέρασε είχα την χαρά να το βρω σε βιβλιοπωλείο μεταχειρισμένων βιβλίων και το αγόρασα αμέσως. Κι επιτέλους, χαίρομαι, που κατάφερα να τελειώσω αυτό που είχα αρχίσει παιδί.

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER - Abysmal Review



THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER - Abysmal

Metal Blade Records


This is what a melodic death album should sound like. With precision in the songwriting, a solid production quality, insane vocals, and uncompromising way of each composition. The songs are chaotic, but well played out guitar/drum-wise. Each instrument was mixing with exactitude. I really enjoyed this album over their latest because everything on the production fit in. The melodies were catchy and uncompromising. The leads are superb and done immaculately. There's no letting up on the intensity of this album. It's in your face melodic death. The vocals taking right form both in low and screaming tones. The latter more so.

HUMUNGUS – Warband Review



HUMUNGUS – Warband

Killer Metal Records


HUMUNGUS come from Richmond, Virginia, U.S.A. The band was formed in 2010 and in 2011 they released their first 5 track EP entitled “Drinkin' a Beer” and after that in 2012 their 2 track EP under the title “Shark Castle”. Their debut full length release which has the title “Warband” was released for the first time in 2015 as an independent release and lately it was released again by the German metal label Killer Metal Records, which in my opinion is a label with a good taste in the traditional metal sound.
