CD REVIEW

ARMAGEDDON

Captivity & Devourment

review by dalia di giacomo

 

Vortex of creativity and monument 

to the essence of Metal.

 

Armageddon, led by former Arch Enemy guitarist Christopher Amott, strikes back in Januar 2015 with a powerful album that represents a crafted, fluent, modern-oriented essence of Heavy Metal mixed mainly with Melodic Death,  spiced up by other inspirational sources too.  This album is a vortex of creativity, the vision of the future but, at the same, it is a great monument to the roots and essence of Metal rhythmics. "Captivity & Devourment" is both ravenous and captivating: Characterized by excellent guitar-shreddings, groovy rhytmics/bass lines, cool sound quality, and  memorable magnetic hooks...

BUTCHER BABIES

Goliath

review by Dominic Latscha

in English, German and Spanish

 

Modern Kick Ass Metal band.

 

You take the groove from Pantera, mix it with the aggression and melodies from Slipknot, add a pinch of Shock Rock, add two beautiful mannequins, who worked as TV- and Radio hosts for the Playboy Channel in the USA and the Butcher Babies appear. That’s the way you could describe the Modern Kick Ass Metal band from Los Angeles.

CD REVIEW

LIV KRISTINE

Vervain

review by Salvo Russo

 

You cannot escape from your deep Gothic Soul.

 

Liv has an unique and sweet voice and this album still confirms how an artist may go through different periods during his or her life! After the previous more Pop-Rock oriented album “Libertine” and other different releases in which Liv showed a real detachment from Gothic, this album proves that you can’t escape from your deep Gothic soul…if it really belongs to you!

  CD REVIEWCD REVIEW 

DIABULUS IN MUSICA

Argia

review by Dominic Latscha

in English, German and Spanish

 

The topic on "Argia" is about the thirst for freedom.

 

Diabulus in Musica caught my attention for the first time when they performed at this year’s „Masters of Symphonic Metal“ festival at club Z7 in Pratteln, Switzerland. They performed well and gained more fans in Switzerland.

SAREA

This Is Not Goodbye

review by Matthew Haumschild

 

Cleaner and modern version of the melodic Death Metal.

This is what you need to know about this band first and foremost, they are from Sweden! Why on Earth would I even mention this? Because this goes towards credibility of this band, Sweden is the home of the some of the greatest metal bands on the planet.  So when I even make mention of the fact of the bands geographical origin, I am in-fact paying homage to bands like In Flames, Dark Tranquillity, Soilwork, Opeth, Drain STH…take your pick the promotional group that was marketing this band likend Sarea to the above bands (excluding Opeth and Drain respectively), so I had to listen and make judgment for myself and for you…the listener...
