U.D.O. – Game Over – 2021

I know that Game over is an album by the band U.D.O. but in my mind, this band is nothing else but Udo Dirkschneider doing what pleases him. For me, he and the band at one and the same. Members come and go but he always remains (of course). For long periods of time, the members have stayed the same but still, there is no other constant than Udo himself. I don’t really care. I...

Madam X – Monstrocity – 2017

Monstrocity has to be one of the most anticipated albums of the year. At least for me! I have wanted Madam X to follow up their success with their 1984 We Reserve the Right for as long as I can remember. At least since 1984… And now they finally released their second album 33 years later than the first one. That ought to be some kind of record! This is the classic line-up too. I...

Alcatrazz – V – 2021

Ever since I can remember I really liked Graham Bonnet’s voice. And I thought that a new Alcatrazz album is always welcome. You can only imagine my surprise when I realized that Graham Bonnet is no longer singing in the band. It’s a very strange experience. I mean, he more or less created the band and has been its central point for the entire existence of the band. It’s just wrong. I would compare it...

Heavy Load – Death or Glory – 1982

If we’re talking about Swedish Heavy Metal bands, there’s one band that comes to mind – Heavy Load. They were true pioneers of the genre in Sweden back in the day. They fulfill all criteria of a cult band too. Maybe they weren’t that obscure back in the day but they sure didn’t get the attention they deserved. Maybe that’s why they didn’t stick around for long either. They just weren’t willing to compromise their...

KK’s Priest – Sermons of the Sinner – 2021

I guess no one listening to Sermons of the Sinner by KK’s Priest is totally ignorant about the controversy surrounding KK and Judas priest the last few years? That’s my honest opinion and if you know nothing about it? Good for you I guess! It seems like there’s a lot of bad blood between Judas Priest members and KK Downing. He has complained about not being asked to rejoin the band on numerous occasions. At...

Helix – Walkin’ the Razors Edge – 1984

When this album was released in 1984 the song Rock You was a pretty popular tune here in Sweden. I can’t say that it was a big radio hit in that sense. Partly because I don’t remember and partly because I know that Swedish radio wasn’t fond of playing songs from metal albums as Walkin’ the Razors Edge at the time. I think that has changed somewhat over the years but I don’t know to...
