Song of the Week: Iced Earth: Dante’s Inferno

Iced Earth: Burnt Offerings

Thrash/power metal veterans Iced Earth have sure had their line-up changes through the years. Back in 1995, a young Matt Barlow (Ashes of Ares, ex-Pyramaze) joined the band’s ranks and changed the face of the band drastically.

Metal Review: Unisonic: Light of Dawn (2014)

Unisonic: Light of Dawn

Germany’s Unisonic is a supergroup that we have talked about on WickedChannel.com before. This band contains two exceptional talents in the power metal world, both of ex-Helloween fame actually. These unique talents are Michael Kiske and Kai Hansen. Kiske’s voice is simply something to behold. From his old Helloween days, the music was just special,

Metal Review: Primal Fear: Delivering the Black (2014)

Primal Fear: Delivering the Black

Germany’s Primal Fear is one of those bands that I just do not get. They have a couple of really good albums, and one amazing album in “Seven Seals,” but for the most part, they are about as generic as metal bands can get. The great thing about genres like classic metal and power metal,

Sweden’s Crystal Eyes are back at it again with the release of “Killer” via Massacre Records marking their seventh album since 1999.

Metal Review: Battleroar: Blood of Legends (2014)

Battleroar Blood of Legends

Greek power metal outfit Battleroar is back after a six year drought with their fourth album, “Blood of Legends.” The guitar licks are sharp and Gerrit Mutz’s vocals are a nice addition to the band on his first effort. With 10 songs and 60 minutes of metal, “Blood of Legends” comes off as their best
