Cripper – “Hyena” (2014)

Label: Metal Blade Records

Review by Tony Cannella

The German thrash metal band Cripper returns with their 4th – and possibly most intense – album entitled “Hyena”. Ever since their inception in 2005, Cripper has steadily grown from album-to-album and “Hyena” sees the band continue to evolve their no holds barred thrash attack.

For 11-songs and 51-minutes Cripper delivers a solid set of music behind a wall of thrash metal riffs and the guttural hell-ish vocals of Britta Görtz. From the opener of “Hyena” and then into the thrash metal juggernaught of “Tourniquet” the band explodes out of the gate. My two favorite songs are the next two; “Bloodshot Monkey Eye” and especially “A Dime for the Establishment” are just ferocious and display the great musical ability this band has to offer.

CineMuerte – “DHIST” EP (2014)

Label: Raging Planet Records

Review by Tony Cannella

The Portuguese atmospheric rock/metal band CineMuerte released their last full-length “Wild Grown” in 2011, prior to that they released “Aurora Core” in 2008, I guess they release new material every three years or so. If they can keep coming up with quality songs like this than every three years is okay with me because this is good stuff.

“DHIST” features 5-songs and almost 30-minutes worth of high quality material with a dark, slightly progressive goth vibe, with modern rock elements as well. “Dog” gets things off to a trippy start and is followed by the alternative flavor of “Heaven’s Not Too Far”. The final song “The Park” is my favorite and a great way to end things. In between we have quality songs like “I’m Too Much Here Without You” and “Shinning Shadows in the Sand”. Continue reading »

Cadaveria – “Silence” (2014)

Label: Scarlet Records

Review by Tony Cannella

The Italian queen of horror metal Cadaveria returns with her 5th album “Silence” and silent is one thing she is not. Beginning with “Velo (The Other Side of Hate)”, “Silence” is off to a wicked start.

Cadaveria is back with her mixture of extreme and clean singing as she alternates between the two. Musically, the band continues with its mix of Black Metal and Gothic Metal to create a dark piece of theater. Overall, “Silence” is a very strong record and songs like “Carnival of Doom”, “Free Spirit” and “Existence” are huge highlights. My favorite track however is the brutal “Out Loud”.

With “Silence”, Cadaveria have released a whirlwind of an album which incorporates different styles but is always mindful to create a dark and sinister vibe. Continue reading »

Kingfisher Sky – “Arms of Morpheus” (2014)

Label: Suburban Records

Review by Tony Cannella

Wow! The new album from Dutch prog metallers Kingfisher Sky is pretty freakin’ good. Their 3rd album “Arms of Morpheus” continues on the bands progressive/folk-ish path which began with their 2007 debut “Hallway of Dreams” and things just keep getting better and better.

Opening with “Hypnos”, this is a great moody track with changing tempos and a bit of a dramatic vibe; this is a good way to start things. From there we go into “At Least You Tried” continues the album on a positive course. “King of Thieves” is the first single and features a good amount of symphonic and folk elements to go with the prog. Other highlights include: “Open Your Eyes”, “Strength of the Endless” and “The Morrigan”. Continue reading »
