GraVil – Thoughts of a Rising Sun

GraVil - Thoughts of a Rising Sun

London’s GraViL are brutal and technically efficient purveyors of melodic death metal, showcased in fine form with their first full length album Thoughts of a Rising Sun. These guys remind me a lot of hearing Dead Cowboy’s Sluts last year, in such that they’ve opened my ears to a ferocity …

Megadeth – Super Collider

Judge it as a Megadeth album and I have a feeling the majority of 'Deth fans are more than likely going to be disappointed. Gone is the speed, the ferocity, the technicality, the balls to the wall aggressiveness of the likes of Endgame and The System Has Failed. This album is very much an extension of what was heard on Th1rte3n and also reminiscent of the style of World Needs a Hero.

Pasadena Napalm Division – Pasadena Napalm Division

It's a waspish, angry, drunken rabble of a band throwing themselves around with an evil undercurrent. This takes you back to early days of thrash infancy. There's an aggressively punkish streak running through the whole album. There's raw power and energy here by the bucketload and the album is unsurprisingly reminiscent of DRI thanks in no small part to Brecht's vocals and style that still stand out to this day.

Invictus – Unconquerable

At present this EP release feels like it is from a young band who still need to find their own groove and own mark of originality in what is an already very crowded genre. They have the potential here, that is without question.

Of One Blood – Out of the Shadows

These boys have come about on the local scene in Glasgow after the split of a previous band and produce modern metal that has elements of metalcore, melodic death, progressive notes and some good old fashioned classic metal soloing.

Tom Keifer – The Way Life Goes

This is easy-listening, good time, rock and roll at its very best, performed with great aplomb and a natural blues swagger from an artist whose maturity brings a huge richness and diversity to the tracks on this album.

Ireland’s anarchic lads of thrash, Gama Bomb, return with a fourth album kicking and screaming that thrash lives, thrash is alive and well and hell mend anyone who says otherwise.
