            Running a heavy metal website I have to be selective in what music I review on the site as obviously I can’t start reviewing Katy Perry albums…or want to.  However on rare occasions I will make an exception if I think the music in some way can fit into a metal/horror them.  The previous such occasions has been the Slovenian Folk/Punk/Rock band Happy Ol’ McWeasel’s ‘No Offense’ and the Horror/Synth band Perterbator’s ‘Dangerous Days’.  On these rare occasions I have been extremely pleased with what those acts had to offer and this will be my third foray reviewing an artist that a metal website might normally avoid.  The artist is GosT with their debut album ‘Behemoth’.

Well it’s safe to say that those expectations are fairly realistic as it is a great blend of the heavy and the gentle. Continue reading Music Review Moonspell CD: Extinct

So in two days a band from Finland, Block Buster, has an EP coming out. And I would say this is a release worth picking up. You’re going to wind up with three hard rock tracks that are sure to please. The songs had, to my ear, such a strong influence of rock from the late 80’s and early 90’s. I was really surprised to see how young these guys were. Continue reading Music Review: Block Buster CD: Ain’t on the Chain
