Anno mundi 1997: the extreme Metal scene is at its best form. Following a very productive year, 1997 sees the release of many new albums by bands nowadays are considered to be ultra famous in this scene, like BURZUM, MAYHEM, IMMORTAL, EMPEROR, SATYRICON, OLD MAN’S CHILD, HYPOCRISY and DEICIDE. At the same time, the extreme scene in Greece is getting bigger.

Destruction - Sentence Of Death

Destruction - Sentence Of Death

I got this vinyl quite a long time ago, I think it was 2-3 years after it was originally released. Now, still being a Thrash addict but also listening to a diversity of Metal sounds even just to have an idea, I believe “Sentence Of Death” release has its place in the ‘Monumentum’ page of our mag as a heavily influential release by a long gone established outfit like German thrashers DESTRUCTION. And why was a masterpiece like the 1985 “Infernal Overkill” follow-up left aside?

Coroner - No More Color

Coroner - No More Color

Back in those days when the term progressive Metal was not clearly spoken in wider circles, you could fit some bands in the already existing categories, e.g. it was hard to categorize outfits like WATCHTOWER or LAST CRACK or SECRECY or even FATES WARNING. This also applied to the Swiss trio CORONER, whose 1987 debut was easily fitting in the European Thrash style but as soon as the follow up “Punishment For Decadence” had come out one year later it was obvious the horizons of this technical band were starting to broaden dangerously.

Ulver - Themes From William Blake's The Marriage Of Heaven And Hell

ULVER was never a band that remained stationary and Kristoffer Rygg (a.k.a. Trickster G.) was, and still is, an anxious spirit. The band released three albums before this one, two of them were pure Black Metal and their second that even though had little to do with Metal was a great folk album.
