Still Burning? Still a raging fireball is more like it! Underground NWOBHM cult act Mythra have offered up Still Burning for release April 28, 2017, on High Roller Records.

AXE CRAZY – Ride On The Night (Album Review)

I’m not really up on the Polish metal scene but if Axe Crazy are anything to go by then I’m on the next plane to Krakow. Incidentally, I was meant to go on a stag party to Krakow a while back but it was decided in the end to go to Prague instead where the beer was twice the price but flights £10 cheaper. Go figure… Anyway, back to matters in hand. Ride On The…

Canadian rockers Axxion were born around 35 years too late. Back In Time screams New Wave of British Heavy Metal and leaves you in no doubt as to where their influence comes from. Back in Time is the second full-length album from Axxion which is out on High Roller Records. The album begins in current fashion with a short instrumental, “Attakr” which sets up the album perfectly. It has ripping riffs, pounding drums and a neat solo…

Demon (Sweden Rock 2016 Spotlight)

Demon (Sweden Rock 2016 Spotlight)

Demon are survivors from New Wave of British Heavy Metal Movement (NWOBHM) that never quite got their due. They formed in 1979 with vocalist Dave Hill the only remaining original member today. Before Demon split in 1992 they issued nine studio albums, two of them charting in the UK. Despite the charting of The Unexpected Guest (UK #47) and The Plague (UK #73) they never really achieved the success they deserved. In 2001, Dave Hill reformed Demon with…
