JIM PETERIK & WORLD STAGE – Tigress – Women Who Rock the World

RELEASE YEAR: 2021BAND URL: https://www.facebook.com/officialjimpeterik     Renowned songwriter and Pride of Lions mastermind Jim Peterik is probably most known for crafting Survivor’s immortal anthem “Eye of the Tiger”, but as evidenced by the latest entry in his World Stage discography, there is so much more to the legend than infectiously catchy AOR tunes with an…

Skambankt varmer opp til nytt album med dobbel singel og video

I dag, 18 jan har Skambank ikke bare sluppet én, men to knallgode låter.   “Ti” og “Tider” er to singler som skiller seg fra hverandre i takt og tema, men som likefullt også hører sammen. Hør låtene her. Der hardtslående og riffdrevne “Ti” fremstår som den perfekte motsats til den mer lyriske, nedtonede, men…

DARKEST MIND – Oracle of Death

RELEASE YEAR: 2021BAND URL: https://smarturl.it/Oracleofdeath Released late last year by Immortal Frost Productions, “Oracle of death” by the Belgian melodic black metal act Darkest Mind is a muscular-sounding collection of deftly executed epics that sound remarkably triumphant. What amazes me is the fact that this one is merely the group’s debut offering (they released a…

INFERNAL HATE – The Order of the Black Kestrel

RELEASE YEAR: 2021 BAND URL: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Infernal-Hate/189959921028828   Pulverizing death metal that reminds me of Krisiun and to a much lesser extent Behemoth around the time of “Thelema.6” is what we have here, and the Spanish horde known as Infernal Hate has unleashed a brutal slab of music that is as catchy as it is crushing.

  RELEASE YEAR: 2021 BAND URL: https://indisciplinarian.bandcamp.com/album/anti-ritual   Look at that beautiful cover – do you think these guys sing love songs on “Expel The Leeches”? Indeed, the music of this 30 minute recording is as crude, ugly and brutal as the guillotine on its cover, a hardcore punk crust with generous helpings of death…
