HammerFall – Hammer Of Dawn – Album Review

Artist: HammerFall Album Title: Hammer Of Dawn Label: Napalm Records Date of Release:  25 February 2022 I’m not entirely sure why I’m reviewing this record because it feels a little like a redundant exercise.

Veonity – Elements Of Power – Album Review

Artist: Veonity Album Title: Elements Of Power Label: Scarlet Records Date of Release:  18 February 2022 Veonity’s 2018 release, ‘Legend Of The Starborn’ was a bit of a power metal corker scoring highly on this very website. 2020’s follow-up, ‘Sorrows’ wasn’t bad either, but it’s fair to say that they did throw a bit of  Continue Reading »

It  Continue Reading »

Lione/Conti – Lione/Conte – Album Review

Artist: Lione/Conte Album Title: Lione/Conte Label: Frontiers Records Date Of Release: 26 January 2018 At the outset of this review, I feel that I must comment on a few matters to put everything that follows into context. The first statement to make is that I am a huge fan of Rhapsody, or Rhapsody of Fire  Continue Reading »

Power Quest – Sixth Dimension – Album Review

Artist: Power Quest Album Title: Sixth Dimension Label: Inner Wound Recordings Release date: 13 October 2017 I feel a bit of a fraud reviewing this record, because until now, I had never really given UK power metal band Power Quest the time of day. I knew the name, I had heard the odd track but  Continue Reading »
