GAME ZERO – Rise Review




GAME ZERO – Rise
Agoge Records
By reading the biography of GAME ZERO I realized that finding the right people to co-work and coincidence can play a catalytic role in order to move forward with your career. Of course you can’t depend only on that, but you must also be talented and work hard to achieve what you want. So, having all these GAME ZERO in a short time managed to release their debut album which I am about to present to you here.

ALESSIO SECONDINI MORELLI – Hyper – Urania Review




ALESSIO SECONDINI MORELLI – Hyper – Urania
Independent
The saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover” is very wise, although here we have to do with a CD. On the cover of the EP you can see Alessio holding his guitar and when I saw that my first thought was that I had to do with a release of a virtuoso rock guitarist who is displaying his skills, but it turned out to be something more interesting.

MOANING SILENCE - Fragrances from Yesterdays EP Review




MOANING SILENCE - Fragrances from Yesterdays EP
Independent
The Greek metal scene was known in the past years mostly due to its extreme metal scene… Something very logical based on the quality of the bands in this genre. These latest years though our scene shows a pluralism in many different genres of the heavy metal music and with noticeable quality. MOANING SILENCE had impressed me with their debut album which I had the chance to present in this zine a while ago. Now 2 years after their debut full length the band releases an EP in order to expand more the borders of their music.

OVERKILL – The Grinding Wheel Review




OVERKILL – The Grinding Wheel
Nuclear Blast Records
To be honest, I’ve never really have been a huge fan of this band due to the vocals and lyrical content, though with this new one (the only other album I have of theirs is “Years of Decay”) has definitely got a lot of substance to it. I was pleased that everything that makes a good album it all has which is the music, lyrical content, production quality, and guitar leads. It’s no wonder that “The Grinding Wheel” has had positive scores/feedback.

WRETCH – The Hunt Review




WRETCH – The Hunt
Pure Steel Records
WRETCH come from the United States and as I read on their bio they were the pioneers of the Cleaveland metal scene and they were formed in 1984. The first time that I listened to them was their previous album entitled “Warriors” which left me with very good impressions, because it had all these elements that make us love the traditional U.S. metal sound.

MESHUGGAH – The Violent Sleep of Reason Review




MESHUGGAH – The Violent Sleep of Reason
Nuclear Blast Records
Wow, some powerful Djent (a type of progressive metal). In fact, their guitarist according to a source is responsible for inventing this style. It features some real low-end sounding guitar work mainly palm muted riffs and grooves in which it seems (based on what I’ve heard from past releases) is their strongest output to date. Not only is the music good and original, their lyrics are extremely well thought out!

Βασιλιάς Αρθούρος: Ο θρύλος του σπαθιού (2017)


Την ιστορία του Βασιλιά Αρθούρου όλοι την γνωρίζουμε. Του παιδιού που έβγαλε το σπαθί από την πέτρα και έγινε ένας δίκαιος Βασιλιάς. Ο κινηματογράφος έχει ασχοληθεί με αυτή την ιστορία και για μένα 2 ταινίες που ξεχωρίζουν είναι το "Excalibur" του John Boorman με την σκοτεινή και παραμυθένια του αισθητική και το "King Arthur" του Antoine Fuqua που είναι πιο κοντά στα όσα γνωρίζουμε για το ιστορικό πρόσωπο του Βασιλιά Αρθούρου.

STORMHAMMER - Welcome to the End Review




STORMHAMMER - Welcome to the End
Massacre Records
STORMHAMMER is a band from Germany whose career I had the chance to follow from their debut album entitled “Fireball” until their sixth studio release which I am about to present to you here. They started as a melodic heavy/power metal band and through the years they have become heavier without losing their power metal character. It is a band true to what it does and because of that they have earned my respect.
