HEART OF JORDAN – Heart Of Jordan (Album Review)

HEART OF JORDAN – Heart Of Jordan (Album Review)

Heart Of Jordan are a new band out of Michigan and they blow the doors off the Metalcore scene with their self-titled debut! You scratch a Lottery ticket and win big time, or you survive a huge change.  Life gives you surprises that really make you glad to be alive.  I was thinking that I couldn’t love another album as much as something like the latest Beartooth record, when along comes my new favorite collection…

COHEED AND CAMBRIA – The Unheavenly Creatures (Album Review)

COHEED AND CAMBRIA – The Unheavenly Creatures (Album Review)

COHEED AND CAMBRIA – Bio Around ten years ago, I kept hearing the name Coheed and Cambria at comic cons and while reading an assortment of rock magazines. I always avoided checking out the band because of their name, which at the time I thought was a bit lame.  However, one day I was sat watching highlights from the Download festival on the t.v. when a live performance from said band hit the screen. My…

LORDS OF THE TRIDENT – Shadows From The Past (Album Review)

LORDS OF THE TRIDENT – Shadows From The Past (Album Review)

Shadows From The Past is the fourth studio album from Lords of the Trident, who, on the face of it, you would expect to hail from Scandinavia but in fact come from Madison, Wisconsin. To me, they’re a power metal band with hints of symphonics going on. A heady, and enjoyable, mix. Whilst their image is of tongue-in-cheek piss-taking of the sword and sorcery arm of metal, the songs are all seriously performed and delivered…

THRONE OF MALEDICTION – Perfect Tragedy (EP Review)

THRONE OF MALEDICTION – Perfect Tragedy (EP Review)

THRONE OF MALEDICTION – Bio From the vast lands of Montana comes the blackened Doom Metal of Throne Of Malediction, lead by the talent that is Eric Sartana Horner (vocals/guitar/bass/keys/programming).  The band is like prime Celtic Frost blended to perfection with bands like Satyricon and Emperor.  They sound like demons of Hell are tearing out their hearts and crying acid tears onto the Earth.  That mixture of brutality and vulnerability is an amazing elixior for…

LIZZIES – On Thin Ice (Album Review)

LIZZIES – On Thin Ice (Album Review)

Spanish rockers Lizzies return on October 5 with their sophomore album entitled On Thin Ice. As you can see, it either has the best album cover of all time, or the worst, I just can’t decide. Either way, it follows a well worn tradition of New Wave of British Heavy Metal album covers of badly drawn efforts belying the true greatness beneath, and for Lizzies the 1980’s is where it’s at. The four-piece mainly female…

MIA KLOSE – Stronger (Album Review)

MIA KLOSE – Stronger (Album Review)

UK based Swedish singer Mia Klose first came to my attention thanks to Sweden Rock Festival. In 2013 I made my inaugural trek trans-Atlantic to attend my first Sweden Rock, not my last! Prior to departing Toronto for the adventure, I performed my due diligence on many, many bands of the 80 act roster that were completely unknown to me. Sadly, I found little to nothing on Mia Klose in the way of albums for…

TOKYO BLADE – Unbroken (Album Review)

TOKYO BLADE – Unbroken (Album Review)

Tokyo Blade are renowned for their contribution to the classic era of New Wave of British Heavy Metal and especially their classic self-titled debut. However, they’re much more than that and in the intervening period have released 12 studio albums. Yes, they’ve had their ups and downs, break-ups and disagreements, but what relationships haven’t had some of that over the course of 40 years? Since the band reformed in 2010 with four of the original…
