SPARZANZA – Interview with Frederik Weileby (Audio interview)

SPARZANZA – Interview with Frederik Weileby (Audio interview)

One of two amazing albums I have heard this year Sparzanza, Announcing the End (the other, also amazing being their Swedish counterparts The Soul Exchange with their Vow of Seth EP) is an amazing slab of wax. Here’s a quote from my album review: “Final thoughts on the album. What the hell is going on in Sweden? Between Sparzanza and The Soul Exchange releasing two of the best albums this year, I’m considering a move to the Scandinavian countries….

JASTA – The Lost Chapters (Album Review)

JASTA – The Lost Chapters (Album Review)

Jamey Jasta, heavy music’s chronic workaholic, releases another Jasta album, but is it as good as Hatebreed? “This Is Your Life“, the first track on the album, kicks off with a pounding drumbeat and revolving riff, before vocalist Jamey Jasta blasts in over the top. You can just imagine the live crowd, fists pumping and bodies hurling over the place when they play live. The chorus reminds me a bit of old Biohazard. That’s one…

SKARLETT RIOT – Regenerate (Album Review)

SKARLETT RIOT – Regenerate (Album Review)

Just the title of the album gets me thinking this has to be a cheesy 80’s hair band with the miss spelling of Scarlet, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. The first song, “Break”, starts off with a sci-fi sounding soundtrack piece to a movie. Not at all what I was expecting. The drums sound very electronic while a piano tinkles in the background before a crushingly heavy riff played at 8 billion beats per minute…

PROCESSION – Doom Decimation (Album Review)

PROCESSION – Doom Decimation (Album Review)

As the first stains of guitar softly enter the stereo, luring you into that sense of solemn comfort before the riff proper tears your head off. “The Warning” album opener is a powerful instrumental that just rocks! You can hear the bass widdling all over the place like something Geezer Butler would put together. The soloing all over the main riff is pure 80’s metal. Then in comes “When Doomsday Has Come” which is so hard…

THE SOUL EXCHANGE – Vow of Seth E.P. (Album Review)

Get ready to lose your soul, as Sweden’s The Soul Exchange destroy your ears with what could possibly be the release of the year. From Stockholm, Sweden, The Soul Exchange are getting ready to release their new album on an unsuspecting public. “Vow of Seth” begins with a sitar-driven Indian themed atmospheric piece before crunching in with a nice thrashy sounding slow winding riff. The drums sound a bit tinny on this track and when…

AUTOGRAPH – Get Off Your Ass (Album Review)

Melodic Metal Monsters Come Out Swinging The new album from California band Autograph has arrived and I will tell you, this is my first foray into the band. I have amassed an amazingly large collection of CD’s, vinyl and more over the decades and, every now and again, something slips through my radar but I catch up with it eventually. The band released several albums through the mid to late 80’s and are best known…
