Review: Fer de Lance – The Hyperborean

Release: 22/04/2022 As announced, we present you two reviews of this album. Today it’s Aidan’s turn. In order to create a perfect record, a timeless piece of art, it is in my opinion is essential that it has an overarching atmosphere which in itself is conclusive and consummate. Due to this it is hardly surprising […]

Review: Böllverk – Heading for the Crown

Release: 22/04/2022 The German heavy metal band Böllverk is probably still unknown to most of our readers. The quintet from Aschaffenburg only exists since 2018 and has so far released an EP, Let’s Ride Till Dawn (2020), as well as their full-length debut Heading for the Crown. If you’re still looking for traditional-sounding acts in […]

Review: Powergame – Slaying Gods

Release: 18/03/2022 English version below Holla die Waldfee! Die Ostwestfalen legen auf ihrer dritten Langrille los, dass die Senne wackelt! Der Opener und gleichzeitig Titelsong knallt ordentlich! Messerscharfe Riffs schlitzen durch die Boxen, während die Soli in einem tobenden Feuersturm alles in Brand setzen! Und all diese leckeren Doppel-Tripel-Quadrupel-Gitarren-Leads und der Gourmet-Refrain! Für diesen feinen […]

Release: 22/04/2022 It is certainly no exaggeration to claim that the vast majority of our readers are mainly waiting for two releases this year: Gatekeeper’s second studio album and Fer de Lance’s full-length debut The Hyperborean. The latter has already been in front of us for a few weeks – and I can already reveal […]

Review: Vanaheim – Een verloren verhaal

Release: 04/02/2022 Uit een diepe winterslaap, bemost en overwoekerdStaan de reuzen op en grijpen naar de machtHongerig naar mensenbloed verwoesten zij de dorpenWaar men weerstand biedtGevallen in de nacht Already before the Mead & Greed Festival 2022, I had dealt with Vanaheim’s first studio album Een verloren verhaal. However, due to a large pile of […]

Review: Celtic Hills – Huldufólk

Release: 01/04/2022 Last year you already had the opportunity to get to know Celtic Hills on our blog. Therefore, I will spare myself a longer introduction at this point. The fact that the band from Udine is releasing their third full-length within two years is certainly remarkable. Those who are afraid that this will be […]

Review: Cobra Spell – Anthems of the Night

Release: 31/03/2022 In recent weeks, it has been a bit difficult for me to get excited about classic heavy metal, as many promos that reach us from this genre are very similar in terms of style. Often, there is simply a lack of hits that are necessary to captivate me as a listener – or […]
