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.
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.
French alt-rockers Ethersens latest offering Your Wandering Ghost immediately throws up comparisons with Tool in my mind.
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
Welsh glamsters Tigertailz are BACK!!
So, not content with busting eardrums apart worldwide as part of the excellent Death Dealer ‘supergroup’, former Manowar timekeeper Rhino is back
Wow, yet more symphonic/power/prog metal seeping out of Italy – somebody turn that tap off, it’s flooding the place!
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.
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
Rather shamefully, this is my first contact with Italy’s DGM, despite Momentum being their eighth full-length release.
