Mayhem is a legend, and an institution in extreme music. 1994’s epochal De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas still shocks with the essence of pure evil it conveys, while at the same time it also was, and still is, one of the most original and unique expressions of the black metal genre. The new, long-awaited, sixth full-length..
Known until recently under the name of Ignition, with even an album (2017’s Psycho) released, now these Germans return with a new name, a new album and the intention to create something different and better. Another Sin, Another Life will be released on September 27th and features 12 songs that consciously step away from the..

Tonight was an occasion. A life-affirming, shared occasion between band and audience. And it will not be easily forgotten. Over the past few years, since first playing at the Citadel with the Classic Rock Society, it’s fair to say that Mostly Autumn have fallen in love with the venue, immediately including it as a ‘must-play’..
A second review this week of a Swedish old-school metal band – that speaks a lot, doesn’t it (including of the reviewer’s obsession with the genre)? This time it is Screamer we are talking about, who will be releasing their fourth full-length album on October 11th. Highway Of Heroes comes with a really vintage-looking cover..
After the news of Angel Witch coming back, now, another cult band from the NWOBHM age is also releasing a new album, called Ritual. It is the Tygers’ 12th full-length release and it will hit the streets on November 22nd through Mighty Music. The album was recorded at ex-Tygers’ guitarist Fred Purser’s studio in Newcastle..
Swedish old-school metallers Ram have not only been carrying the torch of trad metal for two decades, but can be safely pointed as one of the several young bands that initiated the so-called New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal at the start of the new millennium, with their 2003 EP Sudden Impact.

Remember Winter Songs – the holiday-themed solo album by legendary Rob Halford, which came out in 2009? We may forgive you if you don’t, but now it has a spiritual follow-up with Celestial. This new, 12-song collection, credited to Rob Halford with Family & Friends, will come out in October 18th via Legacy Recordings. Most..
Undress Your Madness is the highly anticipated follow up to the critically and commercially successful album Kingmaker, released in 2016 and a record that continued along the revitalised path that the band set out on with their classic albums Pandemonium and Motherland. It is always difficult to follow a successful and inspired record, but Undress Your Madness shows..
The quality of tonight’s three-band lineup can be judged by the fact that popular up-and-coming metal rockers Gorilla Riot, with their penchant for complex, driving, backing riffs, were bottom of the bill. The Red Lion in my home town has been a hard rock venue for as long as I can remember, but as the..
