What is the nature of a virus, exactly? It attacks stable, living cells and replicates itself, to spread to other locations and keep gaining in power. So the music of Norway's Virus follows suit, as it attacks your fragile, stable body, gaining power as it makes it bounce, backflip, and behave in other delusional ways it ordinarily wouldn't. Is your body having a party? Is it being stricken by disease? It could be both. It could be neither. That's just part of the beauty of the Virus. <a href="/pub/review.php?review_id=13924>Read more…</a>
From the opening seconds of Tsar, it's clear that Victor Smolski is involved. Smolski was of course a prominent member of Rage from 2001 to 2015. Fans of Rage will know that Smolski basically took control of songwriting and his focus on heavy technical riffs, orchestral flourishes and solos I can only describe as slightly insane, helped Rage develop a signature symphonic sound in later years. It's of no surprise that he now has total control over Almanac and fans of his sound and songwriting should be find something to enjoy in Tsar. <a href="/pub/review.php?review_id=13925>Read more…</a>
Have you ever wondered what Andi Deris (Helloween) would sound like singing Iron Maiden songs? Me neither, but Mob Rules have given us just that. The Iron Maiden part? Most definitely. I am quite shocked at how much Tales From Beyond sounds like Maiden in their Brave New World comeback era form. It really works though and Tales From Beyond is an impressive power metal album that never drags or feels padded out with filler. <a href="/pub/review.php?review_id=13926>Read more…</a>
Che: On the second-to-last day of this year's Roadburn Festival, as with the 2015 edition, the weather went South. Cold rain and winds greeted Rod, Zaphod, and I as we departed Marcel's house on that Saturday morning. But hey, since when has bad weather stopped trve metallers? Never, in my book. It was time for the next chapter, even if a little wet and shivery! <a href="/pub/article.php?article_id=1714>Read more…</a>
