Ladies and gentlemen, Deadlock has re-arrived! On their latest output, “The Re-Arrival”, the German melodic death/thrash metal band Deadlock brings the listener a melding of the old and the new – and here’s the kicker – it all sounds fresh and vital in today’s metal landscape.
With “The Re-Arrival” Deadlock present us with 15-songs and over an hour’s worth of material, some re-recorded versions of older favorites and three brand new songs. The first new song is the opening track. “An Ocean’s Monument” which happens to be a ferocious opener – this song gets the listener pumped right away. The band is fronted by the clean female vocalist Sabine Scherer and screamer extraordinaire John Gahlert. The two of them make an awesome combination. Continue reading »

When it comes to Celtic influenced Folk metal, Switzerland’s Eluveitie have to be considered one of the best, most influencial – and biggest of the genre. With their new album “Origins” the band has done nothing to dissuade their loyal and growing fan base.
The narrative opening intro “Origins” kicks things off and segues into “The Nameless”. The songs range from mosh worthy frenzied numbers to beautiful Celtic influenced pieces. There can be no denying that Eluveitie are at the top of their game and in their prime, as songs like “From Darkness”, “Celtos”, “King” and “Inception” indicate. The song “The Call of the Mountains” is a huge highlight which sees female vocalist Anna Murphy showing her singing skills. Of all the songs, this is the most different on “Origins” and has a ton of mainstream potential. Continue reading »

“Left in the Dark” is not the new Tarja Turunen album. Instead, this should be looked at as a companion to her previous album “Colours in the Dark”. That said LITD is an album that includes demo, live versions and alternate version of 9 of the 10 songs that appeared on CITD.
The track-listing has pretty much been left intact. The lone exception is that “Darkness” has been replaced with “Into the Sun”. A demo version of “Victim of Ritual” opens things and is followed with the excellent “500 Letters”. This song remains haunting, frightening and beautiful. This particular version is recorded live acoustically at Vorterix radio. “Until Silence” is also from the same radio session. Beyond that, we get demo versions of several songs an instrumental version of “Deliverance” as well as variations on other songs from CITD. Continue reading »

I remember like it was yesterday the first time I’ve heard of BABYMETAL. It was on the end of November 2012 and I was surfing the web looking for new bands to listen to. Among the reviews and many site news I found the “Doki Doki Morning” video of the Japanese metal band BABYMETAL. It was love at first sight: three teenagers dressed like gothic lolitas dancing on a pop-metal song. I’m not talking about rock, but pure death metal wisely combined with a catchy refrain, all sung in their native language. The next logical step was searching for more and believe me, I found a really interesting group. BABYMETAL is a trio composed by 3 teenagers: Suzuka (SU-METAL), Moa (MOAMETAL) and Yui (YUIMETAL) and please keep in mind that BABYMETAL is the musical phenomenon of this year with several sold-out gig stadiums in Japan and lately they caught the interest of the foreign media too.
