Mystic Prophecy – Metal Division

The highlight of the album for me is “Here Comes the Winter”. This song is so much Iron Maiden without being Iron Maiden. Especially the intro, but the melodies and chorus as well. Even Roberto Dimitri Liapakis singing is so resembling to Dickinson that I had to check for featuring artist.

Apocalyptica – Cell-0

And it’s simply amazing how much the music speaks if we take the time to truly listen with all senses, and how much variety there is on this album, the soft whispers and the raw screams.

Magnum – The Serpent Rings

There are many really good tracks and a lot of emotion and strength throughout The Serpent Rings. Just listen to the emotion in the title track or the subtle 80’s keyboards in The Great Unknown… It’s beautiful!

The Who – Who

But the production is a real downer. It feels mixed through a modern filter with autotuning and all that crap that makes modern day albums sound so boring. My god, couldn’t they let Daltrey sing his stuff without “making it better” with a computer?

Avatarium – The Fire I Long For

This trio of songs makes a strong as hell opening of “The Fire I long for” with both brilliant song writing and of course, Jennie-Ann Smith’s extraordinary voice!

Dan McCafferty – Last Testament

This is a mellow album with a lot of slow songs and melancholy moods. But it’s also a warm album with a lot of heart and uplifting folk music elements from the singers scottish heritage. It feels genuine and it feels good.

Pretty Maids – Undress Your Madness

To me, the production holds the songs back, and the result is nothing more than just okay. But still, okay is okay, and so I think this album is all right, even though I had hoped for a little more.

Raised Fist – Anthems

Points for the quality and influences from other genres on this album. Also points for the undying wish I must jump up and down where I stand. Going into quality, these songs are well worked over. Introductions, verses, choruses, bridges; it´s all thought through and delivered well packaged.

Slayer – The Repentless Killogy

Besides the classic stuff and the “Repentless”-songs you get “Disciple” from “God Hates us All” and “Hate Worldwide” from the “World Painted Blood”-album, two decent post-classic songs but they have both been included on earlier live releases.
