AVENGER – The Slaughter Never Stops (September 21, 2018)

AVENGER – The Slaughter Never Stops (September 21, 2018)

British Heavy Metal Heroes AVENGER Strike Back With Another Reissue Metal, classic metal, thrash metal… NWOBHM! These are the defining genres that best describe AVENGER. Not a random stab at a description, but an archive of metal styles the band have molded themselves to and related to since their NWOBHM founding over three decades ago, by three members of the cult band BLITZKRIEG. During this time, AVENGER honed their playing skills and built up a…

All Men Shall Fall is their fourth album to date and has a mix of thrash, power and some speed metal along with hints of prog metal. I certainly heard bits that reminded me of bands as…

SALEM – Attrition (Album Review)

SALEM – Attrition (Album Review)

Salem (sometimes also labeled Salem U.K. to distinguish themselves from the Israeli thrash band going by the same name) is a classic UK hard rock band that originally was considered to be part of the NWOBHM movement. But to me, they always were a bit more melodic compared to many of their contemporaries. In my opinion, the influences of Deep Purple and Rainbow shine through in the band’s current musical output whereas many of the NWOBHM…

British Steel – The Rising Force of British Heavy Metal (September 22, 2017)

Something appetizing is brewing – come take a sip. Blighty (that’s Great Britain to you non-Brits) 2017, the ostensible home of heavy metal, is spawning quality and varied acts ready to compete with the best of our neighbors.
