Ross The Boss - By Blood Sworn

Ross The Boss - By Blood SwornSince the gorgeous tour edition of “By Blood Sworn” was recently added in my vinyl collection, I decided to do what I should have done a year ago. I hate to admit that I missed my chance to review the album once it got out, but the gods of Metal offered me a way to redeem myself with this edition. After the rather useless background story, it is about time to see what ROSS THE BOSS came up with, eight years after “Hailstorm”.

Rotting Christ, Varathron - Duality Of The Unholy Existence

There is no better format to release some old-school Metal than on a 7” inch split. Sure, the days when the 7” were the hard-to-find gems among the deepest Black Metal underground corners are long gone, but that does not mean we cannot or shouldn’t indulge ourself whenever a chance arises. The “Duality Of The Unholy Existence” serves exactly this role and comes to spoil us with two most important names and ambassadors of the Greek Black Metal scene, that I believe is a category on its own. You see, bands like ROTTING CHRIST and VARATHRON have a created a unique sound spawning a new sub-genre in the Scandinavian Black Metal that shocked the scene back in the '90s. However, this is kind of ancient history and the purpose of these lines is to talk about this monolith of a split so, allow me to do the honors...

Bible Of The Devil - Feel It

Usually, one’s relation with a band starts with a song and/or an album, with a concert sealing the deal. With Chicago’s BIBLE OF THE DEVIL my relation started from the end, and for this reason, became a solid one. Ok, the band was not known to me before that as I had purchased the “Freedom Metal” album when I was living on the other side of the Atlantic, being totally oblivious of how things with BIBLE OF THE DEVIL would evolve. Fast forward one decade later, I am happy to say that I have seen BIBLE OF THE DEVIL way more times than I had spun any of their albums, and now, I am excited to report that “Feel It” arrived to change this.

The Night Eternal - The Night Eternal

It has been rather too long since the last time I was drawn into a release just by reading the press release, even though in the case of THE NIGHT ETERNAL did not say much. Or maybe, it held the right elements to pique my interest and make me clicking on the ‘play’ button. Before moving forward discussing “The Night Eternal”, which happens to be the first EP and the debut release by these Germans, I should mention that I am always drawn towards to classic Heavy Metal on an EP format, even before listening to a single song.
