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.
characterize themselves as a project although in the bio they have posted on
their facebook page this project seems to be a full member band. They come from
Italy and they were formed in 2010. In 2011 they released their first demo and
5 years later and in specific in 18 – 3 – 2016 they released their debut album
“Born in Doom” which as you have already realized I am about to present to you
LEGION is another band of the great and well known Australian guitarist Stu
Marshall (who did a great work with bands like DUNGEON and especially DEATH
DEALER) surrounded by musicians that are experienced and were members of such
bands like DARKER HALF.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
