Scarlet Records

Game Over - For Humanity (Scarlet Records)

Rock solid Italian thrash metal. Still waiting for a thrash version of Bella Ciao...
Release Date: 
2 Feb 2015 (All day)

2012 represented the tail end to the heights of the thrash metal resurgence in the 2000s, with numerous strong albums released that year by both the old and new guard.

Game Over - Burst Into the Quiet (Scarlet Records)

Release Date: 
23 Jun 2014 (All day)

So, whilst Metal as Fuck’s editor gets the new Overkill album to listen to, my division of the thrash spoils is this – unknown thrash from Italy.

Ethersens - Your Wandering Ghost (Scarlet Records)

Tres bon...
Release Date: 
20 Jan 2014 - 12:30am

French alt-rockers Ethersens latest offering Your Wandering Ghost immediately throws up comparisons with Tool in my mind.

Almah - Unfold (Scarlet Records)

Brazilian progsters with an alternative itch that needs to be scratched...
Release Date: 
25 Nov 2013 (All day)

Brazilian power/prog act Almah are back with a fourth album, Unfold, and, whilst it’s undoubtedly their most accomplished album to date, it’s not a wholly satisfying liste

Tigertailz - Knives (Scarlet Records)

Just an EP, but enough to give a (lipstick) teaser of better things to come...
Release Date: 
22 Oct 2013 (All day)

Welsh glamsters Tigertailz are BACK!!

Angels of Babylon - Thundergod (Scarlet Records)

Release Date: 
18 Jun 2013 (All day)

So, not content with busting eardrums apart worldwide as part of the excellent Death Dealer ‘supergroup’, former Manowar timekeeper Rhino is back

Infinita Symphonia - Infinita Symphonia (Scarlet Records)

Classy stuff indeed!
Release Date: 
18 Jun 2013 (All day)

Wow, yet more symphonic/power/prog metal seeping out of Italy – somebody turn that tap off, it’s flooding the place!

Dark Moor - Ars Musica (Scarlet Records)

Classic stuff from these well-established Spaniards...
Release Date: 
18 Jun 2013 (All day)

Kaboommmm!!!! Yep, that’s the sound triggered in the middle of my cerebral cortex by Ars Musica, Dark Moor’s ninth serving of symphonic power metal.

Kaledon - Altor: The King's Blacksmith (Scarlet Records)

More of the same from these Italian veterans...
Release Date: 
25 Apr 2013 - 11:30pm

Altor... was due originally to be reviewed by our very own power metal champion, Ferrum Templor; but as time dragged on, and the review deadline loomed, it became clear so

DGM - Momentum (Scarlet Records)

High quality prog metal from Italy
Release Date: 
26 Apr 2013 (All day)

Rather shamefully, this is my first contact with Italy’s DGM, despite Momentum being their eighth full-length release.
