TUNGSTEN AXESwedish Iron Iron Shield (2013)Rating: 3/10 While I truly understand what Sweden’s Tungsten Axe are trying to do with their fist-pounding brand of retro metal, the debut opus from this armour-plated quartet is, to put it short and sweet, a “How Not To Do Heavy Metal” guide. When I first gave this new opus […]
