KALEDON - Carnagus - Emperor of the Darkness Review


KALEDON - Carnagus - Emperor of the Darkness

Sleaszy Rider Records


I know the band many years and I appreciate their passion for the power metal sound that gives them all they need to keep releasing albums all these years. The band started in 1998 in Italy and up to now I was thinking that their name was a different spelling of the word Caledonia that ancient Romans used to call the land of Scotland back then. Actually Kaledon is an imaginary land that the musicians of the band have created.

KILLIN’ KIND – Dying Earth Review


KILLIN’ KIND – Dying Earth

Underground Symphony


We are used to saying better late than never. Also here in Greece we have a saying that good things take time to happen. I think that KILLIN’ KIND from Italy had the same thoughts. You see “Dying Earth” is their sophomore album that comes 8 years after releasing their debut entitled “Metal Rage”, which is an album you should check out.

LONEWOLF – Raised on Metal Review


LONEWOLF – Raised on Metal

Massacre Records


Their 9th album will be released on 22th of September, so you already know which album I will buy on that day. I follow LONEWOLF from the start of their career and I also had the chance to see them live on stage here in Thessaloniki; they killed it! You see back in 2001 if you were a big RUNNING WILD fan and you were searching for groups inspired by the sound of the pirates it was hard to find such bands. LONEWOLF were one of the exceptions back then (now RUNNING WILD even have a clone band like BLAZON STONE that kick ass though) and when I listened to them I knew that I had to do with an interesting band.

ALTAIR - Descending: A Devilish Comedy

Sleaszy Rider Records


ALTAIR descend from Italy and they were formed in 2008. In 2013 they released their debut album entitled “Lost Eden”. This album has made quite a sensation in the underground metal scene and the first single from it won the first prize in an Italian contest. The prize was to record the song “Power of the Gods” with Fabio Leone.  All these have captured the interest of Sleaszy Rider Records which offered them a deal and the result is the release of their sophomore album which I am about to present to you.

KING WRAITH – Of Secrets and Lore Review


KING WRAITH – Of Secrets and Lore

Underground Symphony


The reason why I love heavy metal music is because it offers me thrills that you can find in a good movie or a book. I always read the lyrics and I like very much the bands that support their lyrical topics with their music. The bands that drag you into the world they create and I think that KING WRAITH do a very good job at that.

SILIUS - Hell Awakening Review


SILIUS - Hell Awakening

Massacre Records


SILIUS is a new band that comes from Austria. The band started in autumn 2013 by the musicians Ralph (drums), Haui (lead guitar), Mex (rhythm guitar), Martin (bass) and Matthias (vocals) who wanted from the beginning to play thrash metal inspired by their heroes as metal fans. In 2015 the band released the demo “DEMOn” which made them known in the metal scene of their country. Actually their talent and their dynamic were very early recognized and the proof of that is that they won the Metalchamp (an Austrian contest for metal bands) in 2015, and also won the Wacken Metal Battle. All these made Massacre Records notice them and offer them the opportunity to release their debut studio album which I am about to present to you.
