Krisiun - Forged In Fury

 Filip Vanhoof    19 februari 2016

Evolution.  Gradually, metal evolved from pure fury and aggression to melody.  A lot of bands that used to play straight forward death metal with deep growls and massive riffs have evolved.   All because of that big scary thing called melody.  You can hear it in the riffs...

Kitty in A Casket – Kiss & Hell (Rodeostar/SPV)

  Van Muylem    16 februari 2016

The last time (and my first time) that I reviewed them was in 2011 with Back To Thrill. As I liked their sound I kept on following them, but missed one album. Well, Kiss & Hell, the new album by Austrian punk´n`roll act Kitty In A Casket was worth waiting for!

Birth of Joy – Get Well (Starman Records)

  Van Muylem    8 februari 2016

Birth of Joy is a trio from The Netherlands bringing in psychedelia and rock’n roll blues with a clear retro touch. They take you back to the time were MC5, The Doors and Pink Floyd started to bloom!

Molllust – In Deep Waters

  Van Muylem    8 februari 2016

I’m into the Metal Female Voices Fest modus and after a chat with Markus Eck I got a nice tip to listen to the female opera metal sound produced by Molllust. It’s my first time and I enjoy it!

SIN.SIN – Fairytronics (Alfa Matrix)

  Van Muylem    5 februari 2016

Well, this is the new project of Kristell (known from Lovelorn Dolls), it’s a more personal and electronic thing (dreamy pop with an ethereal feel). For the moment this EP is a try out, more is yet to come!

Red zebra - The Beauties Of The Beast: The Best Of Red Zebra (1980-1983) – Starman Records

  Van Muylem    1 februari 2016

A lot of people only know Red Zebra from one song, the first one on this compilation, but they have so much more on their CV! They started in 1978 under the name The Bungalows, changed their name and reached the final of the legendary Humo’s Rock Rally (a lot of big bands and great artists ...

In 2003 the founding member Klas Bohlin (guitar) decides to leave the band to focus on other musical challenges... the “old” era of Beseech was put to rest. In the summer of 2012 Beseech was brought back to life again by the original composers, Klas Bohlin (today vocals) and Robert Vi...

Serenity – Codex Atlanticus (Nuclear Blast)

  Van Muylem    30 januari 2016

As Serenity is touring together with Xandria and Jaded Star it was time to catch up with melodic tunes! I loved the artwork and the first notes pleased me, so here we go!

Blutengel – Nemesis (Out of Line)

  Van Muylem    27 januari 2016

I loved the sound on their previous album (Omen) and now they decided to rework older hits in the studio and get us an up-dated sound. So If you loved it, you can’t miss this best of! It’s true that they could have simply launched a best of without any effort, but this is simply provi...
