Overkill - The Wings Of War

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

There is no point to pretend being unprepared for a new OVERKILL album and, really, you don’t have to be a scholar of their discography to know how explosive these NJ boys are. If you still have doubts (shame on you) then going to show with OVERKILL on the billing will be more than enough to put your mind at the right place. So, before spinning “The Wings Of War” I was only curious to see how this lineup would blow my eardrums of and how fast will my blood start to boil. It did not take long and I cannot think any OVERKILL album being a sow-burner to be perfectly honest.

Evergrey - The Atlantic

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

EVERGREY have a special place in my heart and have earned that putting out albums with depth and with so many layers that takes some time to peel off but the process of doing so is the beauty of this entire trip. Sure, there were a couple of albums that the Swedes looked like they had lost their bearing but they have braved the storm and now are stronger than ever. For whatever the reason, “The Atlantic” turned out to be the most slow-burning albums I have encountered from EVERGREY. I can compare this with “The inner Circle” and the truth is that the harder I found it to dig deeper the more I was lured to keep listening. Life loves puns and I found myself really listening to the album while traveling high above the Atlantic... That’s appropriate right? So, having little room to move around and even less freedom to do as I want EVERGREY turned to be the best way to create a micro climate and let myself get lost into the complex song-structures these gentlemen have put together.

Flotsam And Jetsam - The End Of Chaos

Seeing FLOTSAM AND JETSAM redefining themselves with the self-titled album release some three years ago was not enough to convince my old-school mind that these guys had some fresh fuel in their tanks. What sealed the deal for me was watching the band from Phoenix ripping it up onstage like it was the ‘80s all over again a few months later. Sure, I may be exaggerating a little bit but when you see a band more than three decades old having that drive onstage then going over the top with your statements is perfectly OK. “The End Of Chaos” is the second album after hitting the ‘reset’ button and, man, I did not see that coming...

Delain - Hunter’s Moon

Who said that an EP release can’t be exciting and can’t be expected by the fans with huge anticipation? Well, in the case of Dutch Rock sensations DELAIN, this is exactly what’s happening with their brand new “Hunter’s Moon”, the second EP release during their 17-year course in the business, if my memory serves me right. This time, Charlotte Wessels and the gang tease us a bit more, before the release of another full length with their stardust-laden Symphonic Metal, with four new studio tracks accompanied by a live Blu-Ray from their sold-out ‘Danse Macabre’ tour across Europe in 2017, including ten live songs, featuring many special guests, with NIGHTWISH’s Marco Hietala stealing the limelight. Are you excited yet? Let’s go!
