AUDREY HORNE – Pure Heavy (2014) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

AUDREY HORNEPure Heavy Napalm (2014)Rating: 9/10 Pure Heavy is the fifth album by Norway’s Audrey Horne, and it seems that with each release they are getting bigger and bigger. Eleven tracks of glammed-up, high energy rock ’n’ roll, this is a fantastic trip back into the heyday of 70s and 80s rock. What may surprise […]

NECROHOLOCAUST – Holocaustic Goat Metal (2014) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

NECROHOLOCAUSTHolocaustic Goat Metal Iron Bonehead (2014)Rating: 7.5/10 Lo and behold, it’s the unholy return of your grandmother’s favourite band; the almighty Necroholocaust, who have emerged from their stuffy chamber of horrors with this dank, growling mess of maggot-ridden blasphemous metal.

HORRENDOUS – Ecdysis (2014) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

HORRENDOUSEcdysis Dark Descent (2014)Rating: 8.5/10 Praise be to any band that can go by such a wonderful moniker. But then again, it’s not as if this American bunch is churning out country ’n’ western music. As you may have guessed by the band name of this trio, Horrendous is a gore-obsessed death metal slap in […]

HAREM SCAREM – Thirteen (2014) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

HAREM SCAREMThirteen Frontiers (2014)Rating: 9.5/10 Harem Scarem is one of those classy heavy rock bands that have always had its finger on a pulse; a skill that not many other bands can find.
