When I first put on this CD, at the opening track I thought I had put on a wrong CD, cause the opening could easily have served as music in the Lord Of The Ring movies. But when the second track kicked in I knew it was the right album. What Diabulus In Musica brings us is symphonic metal with strong gothic influences. Although they hail from Spain, I cannot detect in in the English vocals. Basically this is almost a new band, since only the founding members Zuberoa Aznarez and Gorka Elsa have remained.
Line up :
Chris Boltendahl - vocals
Hans Peter Katzenburg - keyboards
Axel "Ironfinger" Ritt - guitars
Stefan Arnold - drums
Jens Becker - bass
I’ll skip every unnecessary introduction about the huge discography, lengthy history or influential theory by Swedish act Vintersorg. I have no intention to go into Andreas Hedlund’s enormous curriculum vitae either. Just read what I think about this new Vintersorg-album, whether you like it or not.
Dutch band Dealin is ready to take the world with their fourth studio album ‘The Human Contradiction’.
It took me a few tracks and some minor attitude adjustments to get on the same page as Jackson Firebird, but after careful deliberation, I found myself liking the band. Jackson Firebird is good bluesy rock'n'roll about fast women, fast cars and fast music. If you like down to earth, kick-ass down under rock'n'roll that sounds best played live at your local titties bar, then this is right up your crotch. The high energy of Cock rockin’ that may not be big on originality is cool, infectious, raunchy and hand- clappingly in every other way.
