Moaning Silence ~ A Waltz Into Darkness

This heavy rock band has some good ideas. The female singer is pretty good. The male singer tends to growl at you, which takes away from everything else. That’s what I got out of the 1st song of this album, … Continue reading

Haken ~ Virus

  This heavy metal progressive rock band put out another winner with Virus. Starting off hard core metal with “Prosthetic”, with vocals starting off grumbly, then changing into a more melodic voice, while singing. The band certainly has their musical … Continue reading

Shaman Elephant ~ Wide Awake But Still Asleep

  Another album in the hard rock follows my last review. This is not thrash metal, it is more melodic in nature, but, the musicians all stand out on the album. The drummer really stands out even more than the … Continue reading

Havok ~ V

  Although I am not a fan of Thrash Metal, I can tell you that listening to this album, I can hear the music is really very good. While I’m not a fan of screaming to the point where I … Continue reading

David Reese ~ Cacophony Of Souls

  This album started off poorly, for me, but, by the 3rd song, the album seemed to get better. You may know David Reese from the band Accept or maybe Bonfire. His vocals still have that sound, if you’re familiar … Continue reading

Witch Taint ~ Sons Of Midwestern Darkness

  While listening to this album, I first thought that it was just another metal album. While it IS a metal album, it is a parody album, similar to that of Steel Panther. There is banter between songs (not found … Continue reading

Shakra ~ Mad World

  This guitar driven band from Switzerland has a feel of AC/DC meets Nazareth. Very fast paced rock & roll. The only thing missing was an 1980’s type ballad to round out their sound. The closest that we have to … Continue reading
