HEBOIDOPHRENIE

Cannibalism for Dummies

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Great Dane Records, 2020)

The French act Heboidophrenie offers tight, semi-technical, and sharply executed deathcore/death metal that is as catchy as it is vile and suitably gory. The infectious riffs, crushing breakdowns, and gut-piercing drums all work like a charm while the varied vocals get the job done in an effective and efficient manner. Is ...

MICHAEL GRANT & THE ASSASSINS

Always the Villain

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Frontiers Music, 2020)

Former L.A. Guns guitarist Michael Grant recently released this energetic output of his via Frontiers Records and this is one of those raw and raunchy records that is quite difficult to classify or categorize. In many ways, “Always the Villain” is a modern-sounding hard rock album that sounds current while simultaneously ...

MAGGOT HEART

Mercy Machine

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Rapid Eye Records, 2020)

Maggot Heart's heart and soul, the proudly female Swedish guitaris and vocalist Linnéa Olsson is a fascinating character. Unashamedly, even militantly feminist, Linnéa once said she'd hand out Maggot Heart switch-blade knives to all women and encourage them to use them so they can all take back every city which she'd ...

BLOODY HEELS

Ignite The Sky

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Frontiers Music, 2020)

The Latvian hard rock combo named Bloody Heels is a relatively young outfit in the sense that the band was formed in 2012 and then released an EP two years later followed by a full-length album in 2017. On top of that, these guys have toured the European circuit and from ...

DEEP PURPLE

Whoosh!

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(earMusic, 2020)

British hard rock pioneers Deep Purple surely need no introduction and so I am not going to spend any of your precious time walking you through their rich and illustrious history. Instead, let us turn our attention to this upcoming record of theirs entitled "Whoosh!", which ...

SKELETON

Skeleton

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(20 Buck Spin, 2020)

The Austin, Texan black-thrashing quartet's debut eponymous album "Skeleton" (after "Flexi 1"-2016 and "Pyramid Of Skull"-2018 EPs) is a good example of originality over quality in songwriting. While the sound produced by David "Skeleton" Ziolkowski (guitar), Victor "Skeleton" Ziolkowski (drums, vocals), Alex Guzman (guitar) and Cody Combs (bass) is a powerful ...

ENUFF Z'NUFF

Brainwashed Generation

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Frontiers Music, 2020)

This sparkling new ten-track record by the renowned Enuff Z’Nuff turned out to be a most pleasant surprise and what we have here is a vigorous and fresh-sounding piece of work with the band’s charismatic and characteristic brand of uplifting The Beatles/Cheap Trick-inspired hard rock coming across as more powerful than ...

BLUE ÖYSTER CULT

Cult Classic (2020 re-release)

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Frontiers Music, 2020)

Earlier on this year the Italian purveyors of classic and melodic/AOR rock that are Frontiers Records re-issued this rather interesting album by the legendary Blue Öyster Cult (which was originally released back in 1994), and “Cult Classic” contains fourteen re-recorded tunes by the great band including some of its most well-known ...

UPRISING

II

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Wolfsgrimm Records, 2020)

While the one-man band’s first full-length assault from 2016 was musically impressive and melodically gorgeous (not to mention soaked in a wonderfully thick, blackened atmosphere and majestic as hell), this sophomore effort is even more accomplished and remarkable than the aforementioned debut album. Why is that? Well, the production is more ...

ANAXAGOR

Anaxagor

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Great Dane Records, 2020)

The French death thrashing scumbags collectively known as Anaxagor recently unleashed a self-titled torrent of dark, rumbling metal that is relatively old-school in its approach yet tightly executed and to the point. There is something concise and refreshingly straightforward about this punishing self-titled offering but at the same time it is ...
