Dust Bolt Awake the Riot

Germany’s Dust Bolt sophomore effort, “Awake the Riot,” is like taking a time machine back to the 80s when thrash was thriving and everyone wanted to emulate Metallica’a “Kill ‘em All.” Those were great times, but as all of these eras always do, its time came and went leaving behind a few bands that evolved

Mystic Prophecy Killhammer

Germany’s power metal outfit Mystic Prophecy has released their eighth full-length release, “Killhammer.” When they release an album, you can be certain that it will have plenty of thrash metal riffs splattered within. After all, Germany knows a little something about thrash. I will first get my nitpicking out of the way. Mystic Prophecy has

Metal Review: Paria: Surrealist Satanist (2013)

Germany’s black metal outfit Paria latest effort “Surrealist Satanist,” is an album that I can get behind. The band, who’s history has been shrouded in secracy, goes all the way back to 1995 although their debut full-length did not get released until 2008. Since 2008, they have had another full length release with “Unchain the
