Album Reviews

Spillage - Blood Of Angels

It is amazing to watch a band building a music-writing momentum as they swim upstream against this  saturated and weakened market. Believe it or not, there is still good music being made but it takes a bit of digging through the “clutter”. Although SPILLAGE have been around since 2002, the band’s lineup features seasoned musicians who have done several tours of duty serving music onstage and backstage. Personally, the EARTHEN GRAVE and TROUBLE threads kind of led me to SPILLAGE and - honestly - I am glad they did because “Blood Of Angels” is a solid album, and please, allow me to tell you why.

Katapult - A Fistful Of Truth

This is far from being normal, and moments like these, one needs to find coping or even surviving mechanisms to maintain some sense of normality. For me, music has always been “there”, being the ultimate outlet for all the feelings that could not stay bottled up, no matter if those stem from negative or positive experiences. In this mindset, KATAPULT came for the rescue figuratively kicking down my inbox with their four-song EP and piquing my interest with this effective use of words “sweet ass Gothenburg Thrash” quoted from the band’s Facebook page. How did A Fistful Of Truth” change my mood, you ask?

Khemmis - Doomed Heavy Metal

KHEMMIS was one of those bands that have managed to escape my radar and I am happy to report that I am using the past tense here. That’s right; after catching one show of these gentlemen, I was hooked. The riff-driven and pounding Doom Metal turned out to be powerful enough to make me get the KHEMMIS back catalogue on vinyl. With that in mind, it made no sense to wait until I lay my ears on their new studio offering, even though this is not a full-length album, but an EP with three live recordings, two covers and previously released songs, simply titled “Doomed Heavy Metal”.

Reece - Cacophony Of Souls

David Reece, the Metal Voice is back with another release under the REECE moniker. Well, I assume David Reece isn't the first to consider when Heavy Metal is discussed knowing his past in far more melodic, AOR oriented bands as BANGALORE CHOIR, BONFIRE, SAINTED SINNERS among others. No matter what, he has a great voice and this also holds for Heavy Metal as it is shown in a fantastic way right from start at “Cacophony Of Souls”.
