Megadeth – Youthanasia – 1994

I think the cover art of Youthanasia is the beast of all Megadeth’s releases. That, together with the title pun speaks to me. It’s unclear why the title is not written on it. Anyway, this album came out when Megadeth was in a particularly good place. The previous album Countdown to Extinction was a masterpiece in my mind and I think they wanted to do another album with that style. That’s pretty catchy melodies and...

Dismantle – Enter the Forbidden – 2012

Enter the Forbidden is the second full-length album by Dismantle. I had to look that up of course since I never heard of the band before. But as you know, I find great joy in the process of discovery! I often go by the cover art and what looks cool, might also sound cool but that’s not a rule of course. But I choose a bit with my eyes. What pleases the eyes is what...

Exumer – The Raging Tides – 2016

When I review music I usually listen a lot to the album before I review it. Then When I have written something I tend not to listen to it at all and go on to the next project. That means that I sometimes take my time because I really don’t wanna stop listening. As in this case, Exumer is so good and I absolutely love The Raging Tides! This is Thrash Metal as it was meant to sound!...

Silver Fist – Fé Ciega – 2016 – Spanish Thrash Metal

Once upon a time, I bought some records by a Spanish hard rock group Baron Rojo. I could hardly understand the lyrics. I mean that a few words here and there were obvious but the whole concept was a secret to me. If was a lyric sheet in the albums is a mystery right now. But I didn’t have the ambition to understand anyway. Now, thirty somewhat years later, I listened to this album Fé...

Megadeth – Dystopia – 2016

Megadeth has been pretty uneven over the years. In earlier years they performed fast thrash metal but in recent years they have slowed down quite a bit. Personally, I like both styles depending on my mood. The important thing is that the riffs are good and that the melodies are nice. Megadeth seems to manage this pretty well over the years. I don’t feel like Dave Mustaine has sold his soul to commercialism as some...

Power Trip – Nightmare Logic – 2017

I never heard of this Thrash Metal band before but I decided to explore it to see what it was. I learned that it was some kind of crossover metal or cross over thrash even and that’s not necessarily a good thing. It’s not necessarily a bad thing either, there’s just not a general rula about it. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s not. Simple as that. I really liked the music from the very beginning...
