SINHERESY

Out Of Connection

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Scarlet Records, 2019)

The 3rd full length from the Italian heavy metallers is a set of well-written and powerful symphonic anthems Soilwork or Scar Symmetry would not be ashamed of, with excellent performances all around. Formed in 2009 as a Nightwish cover band, the Trieste quartet consisting of Cecilia Petrini (vocals), Stefano Sain (vocals), ...

(Spitfire Music / SPV, 2019)

The magnificent The Dead Daisies are undoubtedly one of the most exciting hard rock bands out there today. The thrilling entity boasts an impressive line-up and some of the best musicians in rock have trod the board with the band in the past (we are talking former members of Whitesnake, Thin ...

THE NEGATIVE BIAS

Narcissus Rising

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(ATMF, 2019)

The 2nd installment from the Austrian black/death metal ensemble brings a fairly original mix of Enslaved/Emperor structures, Behemoth-ian power, dissonant harmony a'la Ulcerate/Deathspell Omega, with liberal helping of My Dying Bride-ian/Osole-ic doom/death for mixed results. Formed in 2016, The Negative Bias, featuring Ingo "I.F.S" Fundulus (vocals, lyrics, songwriting), Golden Dawn's Stefan ...

STINGER

Colourblind

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Boersma Records, 2019)

Stinger, which is an outfit hailing from Germany dabbles in loud and bluesy hard rock with a thick and groovy vibe to it, and in many ways, it sounds like the missing link between AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, early Status Quo, and Accept. The songs are instantly catchy due to the testosterone-filled ...

MAGIC PIE

Fragments of the 5th Element

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Karisma Records, 2019)

The talented prog rockers known as Magic Pie are an interesting outfit and these guys have gradually grown into one of the more respected and musically rewarding acts to come out of Norway. Their dynamic mixture of eclectic 70s-inspired prog (think ELP) and classic heavy rock (ala Deep Purple and Uriah ...

FAITHSEDGE

Bleed For Passion

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Scarlet Records/Spiritual Beast, 2019)

The 4th album from the Californian hard rock ensemble brings back the spirit of the "hair metal" and the hard'n'heavy days of Def Leppard, Guns'N'Roses and Van Halen, with excellent musicianship and good, if inconsistent songwriting. Faithsedge was focused on hard rock "hair metal" of the 80s and early 90s since ...

BEASTMAKER

Eye Of The Storm

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Shadow Kingdom Records, 2019)

The 12th, apparently last, EP from the Californian heavy metallers is a very good coflation of Ozzy Osbourne-sque vocals, Mastodon-ian powerful riffing and 90s Megadeth-ian melodies for a worthy swansong. Beastmaker, consisting of Trevor William Church (guitar, vocals), John Michael Tucker (bass, vocals) and Andy "Juan Bonham" Saldate (drums), has been ...

CROBOT

Motherbrain

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Mascot Records, 2019)

The powerful Pennsylvanian quartet that is Crobot will soon unleash this raging rock 'n' roll monster of theirs via Mascor Records, and I sincerely believe that this fourth full-length attack of theirs is the most accomplished and musically rewarding Crobot release to date. The loud and fuzzy guitars are perfectly suited ...

AS I MAY

My Own Creations

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Rockshots Records, 2019)

The 2nd installment from the Finnish nu metal/hardcore outfit brings a predictable mix of In Flames-ian and 21-ist century Soilwork-er big choruses with Korn-ish and Slipknot-ic riffing profusely doused with Depeche Mode-ian synths for mixed results. Just one listening session of "My Own Creations" proves there is no doubt that As ...

SHADES OF DEEP WATER

Death's Threshold

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Dunkelheit Produktionen, 2019)

The 2nd album from a one man funeral doom band, Juho "J.H." Huuskola, offers a monotone, one-dimensional and extremely austere doom that barely passes for metal while inspiring sound sleep more than the intended negativity. Shades Of Deep Water is a project of one Juho "J.H." Huuskola who plays all the ...
