Megadeth – The Sick, The Dying…And The Dead! – Album Review

Artist: Megadeth Album Title: The Sick, The Dying…And The Dead! Label: Universal Music Group Date of Release: 2 September 2022 For countless reasons, Megadeth have always been at the very top of my thrash metal list. I discovered the band with their 1994 album, ‘Youthanasia’, and it was love at first listen. I’d been reticent  Continue Reading »

Grave Digger – Symbol Of Eternity – Album Review

Artist: Grave Digger Album Title: Symbol Of Eternity Label: Rock Of Angels Records Date of Release: 26 August 2022 Where do I begin with this, my first ever review of one of the most well-known and longest-serving bands within the world of heavy metal?

Fellowship – The Saberlight Chronicles -Album Review

Artist: Fellowship Album Title: The Saberlight Chronicles Label: Scarlet Records Date of Release: 15 July 2022 A brand-new UK-based power metal band? Yes please. The genre, it is fair to say, has been dominated by Europe and the US for many a year, so it would be great to have a new entity to help  Continue Reading »

Sinner – Brotherhood – Album Review

Artist: Sinner Album Title: Brotherhood Label: Atomic Fire Records Date of Release: 15 July 2022 When you consider how much Mat Sinner (real name Matthias Lasch) has suffered with his health over the past year or more, it is a cause alone for some celebration to hear Sinner back doing what he loves.

Ironflame – Where Madness Dwells – Album Review

Artist: Ironflame Album Title: Where Madness Dwells Label: High Roller Records Date of Release: 1 July 2022 If I’m honest, when I saw this release nestled within my promo pile, I didn’t have high expectations for it. I’d never heard of Ironflame before, and the questionable and dated cover artwork did nothing to whet my  Continue Reading »

Horizon Ignited – Towards The Dying Lands – Album Review

Artist: Horizon Ignited Album Title: Towards The Dying Lands Label: Nuclear Blast Records Date of Release: 1 July 2022 A combination of melodic death metal and Finland? That sounds like a marriage made in heaven to me. For a start, there’s no doubting the heavy metal credentials of this country across a huge range of  Continue Reading »

Serious Black – Vengeance Is Mine – Album Review

Artist: Serious Black Album Title: Vengeance Is Mine Label: AFM Records Date of Release:  25 February 2022 This is now the third release from Serious Black that I have reviewed within the pages of manofmuchmetal.com and it is safe to say that the results have been rather varied. 2017’s ‘Magic’ scored highly, as it delivered  Continue Reading »

Nasson – Scars – Album Review

Artist: Nasson Album Title: Scars Label: Frontiers Music Date of Release:  28 January 2022 Here’s a decent little find that was originally hinted at by a follower of my website.

Ashes Of Ares – Emperors And Fools – Album Review

Artist: Ashes Of Ares Album Title: Emperors And Fools Label: Rock Of Angels Records Date of Release:  21 January 2022 Sometimes, just sometimes, you forget just how good an artist is.

Battle Beast – Circus Of Doom – Album Review

Artist: Battle Beast Album Title: Circus Of Doom Label: Nuclear Blast Date of Release: 21 January 2021 Back in 2017, I reviewed ‘Bringer Of Pain’, the fourth studio album of Battle Beast’s career. I didn’t however, review the 2019 follow-up ‘No More Hollywood Endings’. Put simply, I wasn’t a big fan of ‘Bringer Of Pain’  Continue Reading »
