Veteran power metal act Brainstorm from Germany is back with a vengeance with Scary Creatures, a collection of ten powerful anthemic tracks loaded with razor sharp guitar riffs and Andy B.

Germany’s Unherz is back with their fourth album since their inception in 2010 and first since 2012. “Sturm Und Drang” is another nice album from the crew. My German is a little rusty, and by rusty I mean that I do not know it at all, which makes understanding the lyrics impossible, but the band
