Music Review-Anette Olzon-Shine

Tracklist Like A Show Inside My Head Shine Floating Lies Invincible Hear Me Falling Moving Away One Million Faces Watching Me From Afar Review-When people think of Olzon they will of course remember her few years with Nightwish.

Metal Review: Various Artists: Ronnie James Dio: This is Your Life (2014)

Ronnie James Dio This Is Your Life

There are few people in metal and rock that were as legendary as the late Ronnie James Dio. I doubt that there are many people out the that would dispute this with me. Outside of the constant debate of who was better with Black Sabbath (of course it was Ronnie), Dio was one of the

Metal Review: Conan: Blood Eagle (2014)

Conan Blood Eagle

Liverpool, England’s Conan are back with their sophomore effort, “Blood Eagle,” their follow-up to 2012′s “Monnos.” As you would expect from a band like Conan, their sophomore release is a heavy, doom-laden collection of songs that pull no punches.

Metal Review: Aurvandil: Thrones (2014)

Music Review-The Oath-The Oath

Hitting US Shores on the 15th of April Review-The debut cd of The Oath just comes right out of the gates swinging. All Must Die which opens the cd is catchy with its 70’s psychedelic occult feel. The vocals sound like a female Lee Dorrian which not only rock the listener but soothe them as
