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.

Spiders – “Shake Electric” (2014)

Label: Spinefarm Records

Review by Tony Cannella

Spiders are a hard rock band from Sweden. On their second album “Shake Electric” the band combines elements of 70’s influenced classic rock, blues and even a punk rock swagger.

The pounding rhythm of “Mad Dog” starts us off with a bang. “Shake Electric” is next and is just a straight forward heavy guitar rock tune. Other highlights include: “Bleeding Heart”, “Back on the Streets”, the punkish “Control” and the bluesy Janis Joplin-esq “Hard Times”. Vocalist Ann-Sofie Hoyles has a ton of charisma behind the mic. The guitar riffs are huge and definitely showcases their affinity for 70’s hard rock. Continue reading »

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 »
