Image may contain: text

2017 just got a lot more interesting(if that’s even possible). As we see some of our favorite classic metal bands returning to the scene with brand new albums, we always wonder what band is gonna be next to rekindle the flame. Well it seems that classic Finnish Heavy Metal act OZ are that band. Returning more than five years after their comeback, the well written “Burning Leather”, we see their next album coming out October 27th! I’m excited because OZ have had for the most part a solid discography up to this point and we can only hope for another home run for the band. The album is coming out via AFM records and contains thirteen tracks.


1. Bone Crusher
2. Restless
3. Heart Of A Beast
4. Drag You To Hell
5. Whore Of Babylon (Bonus Track)
6. The Witch
7. In A Shadow Of A Shotgun
8. Never Close Your Eyes
9. The Mountain
10. Demonized
11. We’ll Never Die
12. Sister Red (Bonus Track)
13. Midnight Screams (Bonus Track)

“British Steel- The Rising Force of British Heavy Metal” compilation to be released in September


As a heavy metal fan, the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal will always be one of the most important movements in the genre’s history. However in the modern day we see yet another legion of young and hungry bands coming from Britain and that is exactly what this compilation is all about. Featuring some of the best up and coming acts such as Seven Sisters, Amulet, Wytch Hazel and many many more, this album will be an amazing representation of the return of British Traditional Heavy Metal in all it’s glory. I am excited for this release personally as the NWOBHM gave me some of my favorite artists of all time and this feels like my generations answer to that. The album will be released September 22nd, 2017 through Dissonance Productions and Back On Black records.

Venom Inc. release new song “AVE SATANAS”



Venom Inc have released the second single for their new upcoming album “Ave” out this august. The track “Ave Satanas” has the same mid tempo as their first single but the riff is even more infectious. The song reminds me a lot of the track “Prime Evil” especially in it’s pacing. Dolans vocals are very on point and pack alot of power and grit. My favorite thing about this track is Mantas’ solo and how loose he plays it yet it works so well. So far between this track and “Dein Fleisch”, i’m very excited for the album, it is a very different sound than I thought they were going for but it works as its quite infectious and catchy and doesn’t try to sound like early Venom at all. They clearly have their own original ideas and this track shows that this is going to be a very different but interesting metal record than what a lot of others were expecting. I fully embrace it but what do you think? like it? hate it? Let us know!

Vescera release new video “In The Night”



Well here is something pretty cool for you melodic metal fans! Heavy Metal group Vescera led by acclaimed singer Michael Vescera have released a new video for their song “In The Night” off their barnburning new album “Beyond The Fight” released April 7th with the vinyl edition coming soon this month. I definitely think they chose a good song off the album for this video as it shows the whole bands versatility and the interesting sound they managed to create with a lot of melodic edge but very big hooks that alot of US power metal bands utilize. The album is definitely one to check out but don’t take it from me, listen below and see what you think! I would love to see these guys come to Chicago some day and definitely think their debut is a strong record to tour on over here.

One June 10th, legendary Heavy Metal act Jag Panzer announced online that their next album entitled “The Deviant Chord” will be released on September 29th, 2017. The album will be distributed through SPV worldwide as well. This is the first album from the band since their last entitled “Scourge Of The Night” released in 2011. Personally I think this is a great time for the band to reappear on the scene. With a lot of the more obscure bands on the spectrum releasing material, this hopefully give them a chance to spark up some good ideas once again. Are you excited to see Jag Panzer return?

Venom Inc release new track “Dein Fleisch”


Venom Inc have released the official video for their new song “Dein Fleisch” for their new album entitled “Ave” out on August 11th this summer. Personally the song has a very almost Rammstein sound and pace to it with a more 90’s riff heavy sound to it. After a few listens i’m starting to dig it more and more and this is a good tease for what is to come on the album. I do hope they do have more fast paced like moments as well though.
