Battle Beast – Circus of Doom – 2022

There’s really nothing else to do but confess. I don’t follow bands and album releases in the same the way I used to in my youth. Battle Beast and therefore Circus of Doom has completely passed me by. But I did a quick google search and Battle Beast is a band from Finland. They have been around since 2005 and Circus of Doom is their sixth studio album. The signature sound of Power Metal is...

Ancient Bards – A New Dawn Ending – 2014

I know that I said it before, but to explore unknown territories is the most rewarding chore of reviewing. You get to hear and see so many things that you wouldn’t have if you didn’t search for new and “other” stuff that you already know about. I can’t remember where I heard about Ancient Bards but I figured, based on the band name and the album title – A New Dawn Ending, that this would...

Arturius – Arturius – 2017

Arturius is a Swedish power metal band from Gothenburg. I don’t know why so many heavy metal band originates from that city but it’s a fact. There are many bands coming from Gothenburg. I can’t say that they have much in common. Of course they are all metal band (at least those that I refer to) but apart from that I don’t see any similarities. My heart beats extra fast for metal music so I...

Demons and Wizards – Touched by the Crimson King – 2005

I have listened enough to this album now. With that I mean that I have had in in my earphones etc. for quite some time by now. Not that I’m tired of it yet, I’m not! It’s a great and interesting album. But I feel I should move on and explore something else for a while. But that’s how it is sometimes. You get stock with some music and you can’t really lay it down....

Grave Digger – Healed my Metal – 2017

Back in the old days. The days when there was still a heavy metal radio show in Sweden. I remember that Grave Digger was played on that show. Yes, since Sweden is a very small country there was only on such radio show. Once a week they played metal at a great broadcasting time. I used to tape them just to expand my library of metal music. Those days are gone now of course. These...

Iced Earth – Plagues of Babylon – 2014

If you look at the cover of Plagues of Babylon, or any Iced Earth album for that matter, you might get the impression that the music is very violent. That isn’t the case. It’s metal music of course but less death and more power metal. It’s a pretty nice album, not fantastic but well worth a listen if you’re into symphonic and melodic power metal. Plagues of Babylon is kind a of aggressive album. The band...
