Album Reviews

Chapel of Disease takes another sonic twist with their fourth album, “Echoes of Light”. Though they haven’t abandoned their death metal sound fully, the new songs focus on elements of progressive/modern rock, out since February 9th via Ván Records.

Black Stone Cherry have their eighth studio album, ‘Screamin’ At The Sky’, set for release on Friday 29th September via Mascot Records. After a rather not so hard and heavy styled album, we are happy to say that they’re back with 12 hard, heavy, blues-rock infused songs, the BSC we all fell in love with in the past!

Guess who’s back? Danko Jones are releasing their 11th full-length album ‘Electric Sounds’ this Friday via AFM Records, and deliver an album that’s bound to be a classic in the pantheon of modern rock… the typical Danko Jones sound with a higher speed, and more grooves than before, proving that after over a quarter of a century they still kick ass. Highly recommended!

Made out of part Eternal Champion and part former Magic Circle comes Sumerlands’ sophomore on Relapse Records ‘Dreamkiller’ which sees these heavy metal warriors take on a more AOR oriented approach. So strap yourself into the Delorean, fire up the flux capacitor and head for the Sumerlands. They don’t have roads there.
