Mammoth Grinder

The fourth album from Austin-based Mammoth Grinder blasts immediately into brutal black n’ roll hell with the title track. Underworlds hit the decks with full on angry grind core  (Napalm Death, Pig Destroyer) and punky sounding-like thrash/death metal (Discharge, Obituary, Municipal Waste)) like “Underworlds”, “Wraparound eyes” and a hint of Entombed/Unleashed with exceptional guitar solos, pounding drums and a Randy Blythe-like growl bite that hurts for days.

Devildriver, A band from Santa Barbara California (whose name refers to bells Italian witches used to drive evil forces away) from hit singles like “Hold back the day” or “Clouds over California”. This time the band returns after their previous album (witch wasn’t that long ago) and is about to unleash its latest album called Winter Kills.

James Christian

Despite being the frontmen of House Of Lords, James Christian has so far released two solo albums, the 1994 ‘Rude Awakening’ and the 2004 ‘Meet The Man’, he will now rejoice the world of AOR rockers with this opus ‘Lay It All On Me’, his third album. Of course with Mr. Christian you know you’re gonna get some good vocals, and that’s exactly what you get on this album.  As a matter of fact I think he has always been a bit underrated as a vocalist and I hope that this will change with this album.


I have sat on this review for some time. Trouble was a long time favorite band of mine (unbelievable gigs at Dynamo Café, Dynamo Open Air and Lido), so I did not want to rush to severe judgement, writing a review without giving the new album enough time. Well, I've had enough time, and I have determined that the best days of the Trouble guys from Chicago are clearly over. Compared to the material that the band has written in the past, this material just isn't in the same bullseye league in terms of quality.

Timo Tolkki’s Avalon

Since Timo Tolkki’s and Stratovarius ways went in another direction in 2008, both parties have not stood still.  Stratovarius released the ‘Polaris’ album, while Timo joined forces with André Matos to form Symfonia, who released only one album ‘In Paradisum’.  Rumours came and went that Timo would quit the music business, but lucky for us he’s not done that, cause this new project Avalon, has released a masterpiece with this first album.
