ARC ANGEL – Harlequins Of Light (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

ARC ANGELHarlequins Of Light Frontiers (2013)Rating: 8/10 Nothing beats the luxurious arrangements of 80s hard rock bands such as House Of Lords, so it’s no surprise that Connecticut’s Arc Angel are such a heart warming experience. For those who don’t know their 80s melodic rock, Arc Angel are fronted by Jeff Cannata who was responsible […]

EXITUS – Statutum Est Hominibus Mori (2013 Reissue) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

EXITUSStatutum Est Hominibus Mori (Reissue) Svart (2013)Rating: 7.5/10 Statutum Est Hominibus Mori is somewhat of a cult offering from the Svart Records camp. Finland’s Exitus are a gang that began life in 1989, only releasing one demo – a year later – before splitting up. However, Statutum Est Hominibus Mori wasn’t just any old demo, […]

REVAMP – Wild Card (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

REVAMPWild Card Nuclear Blast (2013)Rating: 5/10 Dutch singer Floor Jansen returns from her stint fronting live dates for Nightwish with a sophomore effort from her “solo” band ReVamp. Jansen has become well known in symphonic, gothic and progressive metal circles over the years as the frontwoman for After Forever (who officially disbanded in 2009) and […]

FERGIE FREDERIKSEN – Any Given Moment (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

FERGIE FREDERIKSENAny Given Moment Frontiers (2013)Rating: 8/10 For those of you who do not know of Fergie Frederiksen, well, you should be ashamed, because this mercurial frontman has been paving his way through the annals of rock ’n’ roll history with such revered bands as Toto, Survivor and LeRoux. Without a doubt, Frederiksen has one […]

ANNIHILATOR – Feast (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

ANNIHILATORFeast UDR Music (2013)Rating: 6.5/10 Canada’s Annihilator never got the recognition they so rightly deserved if you ask me. Considering how talented founding member and lead guitarist Jeff Waters was, and still is, they never reached the glorious heights of the so-called ‘Big Four’. Despite a noteworthy 1989 debut album in Alice In Hell and […]

FRONT BEAST – Demon Ways Of Sorcery (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

FRONT BEASTDemon Ways Of Sorcery Hells Headbangers (2013)Rating: 7/10 The hellish one-man band that is Germany’s Front Beast have crawled from the depths of despair to treat / torture (delete where applicable!) us with another ghastly instalment of satanic underground horror. Extreme metal journeyman Avenger – responsible for those vile, tortured screams, rusty bass licks, […]

CAROUSEL – Jeweler’s Daughter (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

CAROUSELJeweler’s Daughter Tee Pee (2013)Rating: 7.5/10 Carousel is a straight up rock ’n’ roll band straight outta Pittsburgh, but despite these guys having been around since 2010 this hearty rocker of a record is their first full-length outing. The band was formed by vocalist / guitarist Dave Wheeler with the aid of drummer Jake Leger, […]

MONSTERWORKS – Earth (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

MONSTERWORKSEarth Eat Lead & Die (2013)Rating: 8/10 I didn’t know what to expect when I saw the band name, and having seen the cover art I was worried that the music would leave me kind of cold. However, this is a really intriguing record to say the least, from a band who originate from New […]

JETTBLACK – Black Gold (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

JETTBLACKBlack Gold Spinefarm (2013)Rating: 7/10 Jettblack is a UK melodic rock band from High Wycombe, England. They’ve released two studio albums and Black Gold is a compilation of rare tracks, a re-worked song and previously unreleased material. The outing opens with a new edited version of ‘Black Gold’ which is a smouldering plodder featuring Damon […]
