MESS EXCESS – From another World Pt1 Review

MESS EXCESS – From another World Pt1
Qua’ Rock Records
There are many bands in the metal scene that have created concept albums and some of them are considered all time classics. Such an example is QUEENSRYCHE’s “Operation Mindcrime” which I mention here due to the similarities it has with the concept story of MESS EXCESS’s album, but first thing first….

MONSTROSITY – Rise to Power Review

MONSTROSITY – Rise to Power

Conquest Music

These guys have been around for 27 years, in 1990 to be exact. They’ve been producing some quality death metal over the years. Even early on. From the Tampa area, many of the more prevalent death metal acts around. I don’t think they’ve gotten enough attention though. That’s just my view.

JMP – Jam Movie Project Review

JMP – Jam Movie Project

Qua’ Rock Records

Jamming in music is something that helps musicians to improvise and expand their imagination and creativity. JMP started as their name stated as a jam project of the guitarist Gabriele Bellini and the opera singer Claire Briant Nesti back in 2014. A little later the drummer Michel Agostini joined the project and with this line up JMP released this debut album.

GARDENIAN – Sindustries Review

GARDENIAN – Sindustries

Nuclear Blast Records

Short career for these Swedish melodic death freaks, which is rather unfortunate. This one was a follow up from a more emotional album entitled “Soulburner”, that one is my absolute favorite. But yeah, I’m not entirely certain of the reasons of their departure from the Gothenburg music scene, it’s just sad.

TEN – Gothica Review

TEN – Gothica

Frontiers Records

Number thirteen, if you are superstitious, is not considered a lucky number. For TEN though it seems to be a fortunate one since “Gothica” is their thirteenth studio release and also their comeback to Frontiers Records with whom they have signed a contract for many record releases in the future. I think that this can make the fans of the band really happy.

Οι Arcturus επιστρέφουν στην Ελλάδα

Όπως ανακοινώθηκε νωρίτερα από τις διοργανώτριες εταιρείες 3 Shades of Black και Krisis Productions, σε μία εξαιρετική συγκυρία, οι  Arcturus επιστρέφουν (μετά από 6 χρόνια) στην Ελλάδα, για δύο συναυλίες, τη Παρασκευή 12 Ιανουαρίου 2018 στο νεόδμητο Temple (Ιάκχου 17, Γκάζι, Αθήνα) και το Σάββατο 13 Ιανουαρίου στο Eightball Club (Πίνδου 1, Λαδάδικα, Θεσσαλονίκη).

Αφορμή για αυτό αποτελεί η κυκλοφορία του προσφάτου Arcturian, που επανέφερε τους Νορβηγούς στη δισκογραφία μετά από πολυετή απουσία, αποτελώντας ταυτόχρονα ένα εξαιρετικό δείγμα avant-garde metal, όπως και κάθε προηγούμενη δισκογραφική τους δουλειά.

Δείτε παρακάτω όλες τις πληροφορίες, σχετικά με τις επερχόμενες εμφανίσεις τους:

SUFFOCATION – Pierced From Within Review

SUFFOCATION – Pierced From Within

Roadrunner Records

This band doesn’t really need an introduction, but I’ll give a short one anyway. SUFFOCATION has been making death metal music 1990, but formed in 1988. They have a pivotal point in the death metal scene, this release being a monument in the genre.

TABERAH – Sinner’s Lament Review

TABERAH – Sinner’s Lament

Killer Metal Records

In every form of art and the same goes for heavy metal we don’t have virgin births. The story of the huge names of our music (BLACK SABBATH, JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN, METALLICA etc) is the story of musicians that had the idea to take their influences and give them their own interpretation and this led them to create their own original sound. In our days, heavy metal is back and we witness new bands formed by young musicians release albums that have quality and offer us some really good moments, but the fact is that most of them don’t do anything more than copy the old school metal. I want to say that the new generation of metal fans need their own heroes and I think that TABERAH from Australia, who so far they have released 3 great studio albums, have the potential to be those heroes.

BLOODSTRIKE – In Death We Rot Review


Redefining Darkness Records

This Colorado based band has a lot to offer here to the death metal scene. They’ve been around since 2013 and have a demo out, this one is their first full-length. They have a female vocalist, too.I’m always thrilled when there’s a newer death metal band out.

BEAR MACE – Butchering the Colossus Review

BEAR MACE – Butchering the Colossus

Gypsyblood Records

This Chicago based band spews out old school death metal with lyrical concepts on war, death and of course bears. Personally, I like this style of theirs, not that I’m biased though.  It just has an old school death metal vibe to it.

MEGA COLOSSUS – Hyperglaive Review

MEGA COLOSSUS – Hyperglaive

Killer Metal Records

MEGA COLOSSUS are no other than COLOSSUS who started as a band in 2005 and existed with that name until 2016. I don’t know the reasons that led them to add the word MEGA in their band’s name, but this decision makes this album their debut release.
