A-Z (Alder/Zonder) – A-Z – Album Review

Artist: A-Z (Alder/Zonder) Album Title: A-Z Label: Metal Blade Records Date of Release: 12 August 2022 I’m well aware of the fact that the artwork of an album is not the most important thing.

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.

Fallen Sanctuary – Terranova – Album Review

Artist: Fallen Sanctuary Album Title: Terranova Label: AFM Records Date of Release: 24 June 2022 On paper, this album should be a home run.

Artist: Battlelore Album Title: The Return Of The Shadow Label: Napalm Records Date of Release: 3 June 2022 Am I the only one to get excited when a band returns from an extended hiatus?

Sabaton – The War To End All Wars – Album Review

Artist: Sabaton Album Title: The War To End All Wars                   Label: Nuclear Blast Date of Release:  4 March 2022 You may recall the incredible coincidence that saw Haken release an album entitled ‘Virus’ in 20xx right in the midst of the biggest global pandemic in generations.

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 »
