Sound of Eternity – “Visions & Dreams” (2014)

Label: Melodic Rock Records

Review by Tony Cannella

Sound of Eternity is a melodic hard rock band from Honduras. Their debut album is entitled, “Visions & Dreams” and lyrically the band presents a strong Christian message which is somewhat unique in this day and age. Of course, bands like Stryper and Barren Cross have been doing it for years, but it is still rare for a young band to emerge with such a positive outlook and message.

“Visions & Dreams” contains 10-songs 45-minutes worth of melodic hard rock with a modern edge. The intro “Visions & Dreams” kicks things off and segues into the best song “Call to Action”. This is a great representation of what SOE has to offer. From there we have songs like “Running to You”, “Broken Heart” and “Reason to Live” which are also stellar and definitely commercially viable.

Sabina Classen, Peter Geltat & Thomas Neitsch – Holy Moses

Interview by Miriam C.

People, we’re in front of a legend. Or better a metal LEGEND. If think about thrash metal, the first band you’ll gonna refer to, at least in the European musical panorama, is German’s Holy Moses. Why? The reason is really really  simply ’cause without Sabine Classen, there’ll be no Angela Gossow, Alissa White-Gluz and Runhild Gammelsæter singing in any whatsoever extreme metal band. Holy Moses‘s first demo release date back in 1980 but it’s the third demo, published in 1982, “Satan’s Angel” that marks Sabina‘s debut behind as a band vocalist until their break-up in 1994. Right now, after 30 years of activity, it’s really natural that a band undergoes a lot of lineup changes but with their new album “Redefined Mayhem”, Holy Moses seems to have found a stable line-up and vocalist Sabina Classen, guitarist Peter Geltat and bassist Thomas Neitsch took some time to speak about it. Thrash on! Continue reading »

Forever Still – “Breaking Free” EP (2013)

Independent Release

Review by Tony Cannella

Forever Still is a melodic hard rock band with a decidedly fierce metal edge. Hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark the band was formed in 2009 and in the time that they have been together, they have already been receiving positive press and recognition. After listening to their debut 4-song EP, it is easy to see why.

So we begin with “The Key”. It opens with a bit of electronic music before the heavy guitars come in. My first impression is the singer Maja. She’s got a truly captivating voice. Near the end of the song comes this hell-ish screaming vocal part from Maja, which is quite impressive. “The Last Day” is a solid mid-tempo number with another bit of screaming from Maja. It is really disarming because it seemingly comes out of nowhere. Continue reading »

Tantal – “Expectancy” (2014)

Label: Bakerteam Records

Review by Vard Aman

Tantal was formed in 2004 in Moscow by guitarist, Dmitriy Ignatiev. A year later they were joined by vocalist, Sofia Raykova who took care of both clean vocals and growls. In 2007, the released their highly acclaimed debut album “The Beginning of the End”… and the rest, as they say, is history. Well, not quite: Sofia left in 2011 and was replaced in 2013 by Milana Solovitskaya, who now takes care of the clean vocals. Oh, yes… and after 3 years in the making, they have now recently released their new album, “Expectancy”. They play a intricate fusion of Melodic Death Metal and Progressive Metal and have mastered it in a way that few bands have. Their sound has also evolved: “The Beginning of the End” was a more brutal Death + Thrash + Melodic Death + Progressive fusion, while “Expectancy” is more refined, less brutal, with the Melodic Death Metal + Progressive edge coming to the fore.
