Wow yeahhh, the country Holland. As it is much connected with it in respect of culture of metal. This country has presented what names to a world scene, I think, it is not necessary to list. Young change in the name of FUNERAL WHORE shows to us that yet the earth on new talents there has not become scanty. Change excellently honors creativity of pioneers of the country, such as ASPHYX / HEXX / DELIRIUM and, certainly, PENTACLE! Excellent guitar attacks, a violent bass guitar sound and driving in nails in your head drum-type parties. I think it and is well-known not growing excellent OLD SCHOOL DIE HARD DEATH METAL! The lyrics, as well as is necessary in this style, is twirled on turtles among gravestones. In general, without tightening with presentation, I direct you on searches of this new command of musical terrorists DEATH METAL. Very very continuation of traditions!
BLLLLLLLLLEEEEEE!!!F@#KING NASTY! I am surprised trick these mad japanese! ABIGAIL / SABBAT / SIGH-here is three-tuple my favorite from this enigmatic and proud country! Now I plus hereto list CUTTHROAT. Here more goes the stress on get old school HARDCORE / PUNK and is fuelled powerful riffings THRASH METAL. Such positive thing was with big share of the black humour. Too similar presently have fun DARKTHRONE. Shorter METAL ANARCHY walks on planet.The Whole on disk 15 compositions of alcoholic revelry in metal!I know that this was a first stuff of the command(ISO 666 Records) released long ago in 1999. WITCHHAMMER Production have republished this issue having added three bonus tracks. In absentia this disk possible to name the play CUTTHROAT someone else song: RAZOR / AVIL BITCH / SACRIFACE / EXODUS Probably these songs on which education in metal musicians Yasuyuki and Mirai. I have buy recently their 7EP, released german NECROMANCER Records and shall say that times nothing do not. They perform the repertoire of the someone else gangs with its THRASH / BLACK / PUNK METAL vision! WILD! DRINK! F@#KING DOLLS! AND METAL PUNX! Made in JAPAN exclusively for CRAZY HOUSE!

GORE GRIND / P@#O / NECRO GRINDA BASS SPE@#ASHIZO!!!AAAARRRGGGHHHH!!!F@#K! I can not all this bear. The Sensation that you flood shit neighbors overhand. And you already sail on throat in all these fecal liquid. In Czech / Slovakia for such disk total supporting queue. There, GRIND CORE culture continues its revolutionary procession. I see Festering masses will get and before our territory. In the next once make sure that NAPALM DEATH great command of its time and THE BEATLES in GRIND CORE
I see, this talented group of Czech strenuously sponsors PARAT magazine. EDAIN have given 5 compositions of the strange perception of the world in metal sounds. About Great! They have reminded me good pieces which met when that at ANATHEMA. This is deep and shrill compositions weight of acoustic passages inclusions and broken metal jazz riffings (both guitar & bass attack!). Further and further in depths of avant-garde also it will be absolutely not dull to admirers VED BUENS ENDE / CONFESSOR / IN THE WOODS / ARCTURUS / TERRA IMPRESSIONUM (Hail guys from Crimean Lands!). EX sounds! Undoubtedly I have spent perfectly well time, listening EDAIN. This is paradox that in such severe and US Brutal area to environment what is, the Czech underground was a place for the similar character. There are Czechs EDAIN worthy erudites of metal!
Excellent start of a young Russian formation living in waters BAY AREA THRASH METAL.VIVA THRASH FIESTA! I as to the adherent of such things very much am imposed by such displays, especially from Russia. I have learned the old fighter of a vault in the name of their vocalist Alexander (ex-CUMDEO) here it wanted to them to show the blood-thirsty vocal. The clockwork and massive music made with soul and by rules of classics of a genre which I think, is not present sense to list. By the way they have devoted a one song in the end of an album – excellent plays a known masterpiece from TESTAMENT. In any piece, each of tracks are learnt so familiar old metal headbangers intonations from “bearded classics”. Definitely simple and pleasant music having to sincere rest and nostalgic reflexions as iron on a boundary of 85-88 years was forged! THRASH INVASION FROM RUSSLAND ON US OLD STYLE! Great feelings
I have pleasantly disturbed with the underground presence VACULA Records from our western areas. I heard about this association supporting assault in the field of Heathen BM. Also at me there was information that the guy who is supervised VACULA by the big assistant to a local scene of Ukraine. So, contact has taken place, and I show an open step, towards doing its review VACULA stuffs. GJALLARHORN of the ancient city of Kherson after a deep history with demonstration messages, at last, show the first well-founded plate. Already on the first sound pieces to me the picture of atmospheric mood and gloomy BLACK METAL with the big share of depressive melodies has appeared. Influence old BURZUM. This way of execution with the big share of liking to a cold and northern subjects is appreciable is obvious on “Awakening”. GJALLARHORN have declared the war together with VACULA crew and I expect their new sound impulses. The excellent emotions caused amazing BLACK METAL by execution. I expect new attacks and I urgently recommend this name. PURE NATURE BLACK ART!
Not with one MOONSPELL the Portuguese scene is rich. Get acquainted with new hope of metal from this southern country. Such sounds pleasantly please a flesh and soul. I am glad that there are the similar commands executing a sincere material, being guided by roots of an old genre. Here to you one more example that in the Portuguese language can sound present HEAVY METAL. Porto MIDNIGHT PRIEST a magnificent gift who searches for fresh breath in range IRON MAIDEN / JUDAS PRIEST / METAL CHURCH and similar fathers of a direction. I have pleasantly spent time and I think yet time to open a box with this disk. It I think the most important thing when you get acquainted with new names. MIDNIGHT PRIEST show sonorous guitar riffings, combined with a dynamical sound and a high vocal that does to a gang conclusive advantage before army headbangers. Excellent emotions! I am assured that this command can shake falling asleep listeners at any festival. Only 6 compositions, but it is a decent dose for an injection to the present admirer of old school. Plus a magnificent cover (Hail Moyen!) and the worthy edition from STORMSPELL Records (037).
I never heard about such trio as PSYCOPATH WITCH and to firm KAPRICORN Prod. I asked simple-it is unequivocal a worthy variant in a vault. So, we begin acquaintance to this Italian association of admirers of dark art. All begins with a short sexual orgy and then prompt continuation in the form of barbarous OLD SCHOOL RAW DEATH METAL. This record follows they have warned it is necessary to listen very loudly! They aspire to break off our heads a primitive and malicious sound in the manner of groups of the South America. From comparisons to them is closer as me it seemed, there will be their compatriots from VEXED. Such machine-gun attacks from a dirty sound and a heap of black atmosphere. Between compositions they use various fierce inserts infernal intros. SPEED UNHOLY MUSIC!

Irreverence and blasphemy

We have received a remarkable debut from the country of the native land of hockey! I know that these young Canadian metal dudes close friends of guys from RIOTOR. Very good school for education. As well as it is necessary NO PITY pursues the purpose execution uncompromising and rectilinear OLD SCHOOL THRASH METAL with an obvious bias in German school. Here loans from the best moments of early period DESTRUCTION / KREATOR / LIVING DEATH / PROTECTOR (the Music born in 80 are clearly audible!). Barbarian vocal combined with the cutting to pieces sound of guitars and heavy support of the thunderous shock drums. Here their approximate picture threshing playing. NO PITY play NO MERCY!!!

I waited for this new work with the big impatience. Especially it is my unconditional favorites in infernal metal from islands New Zealand’s. This time after a mad debut they have written down two tracks in their vision UNHOLY BLACK / THRASH METAL on wild speeds with furious peals of a thunder of the percussion instruments, a penetrating bass and wild cry of afflicted natives-murderers!
The attacking sound, striking all on the spot like a sudden tornado brought by a storm from depths of ocean. Elements of a gloom and fine continuation of their grandiose sound. On it a demo they have mentioned gloomy aspects of the past of the most ancient civilizations. The lyrical part of their new compositions narrates about it. Possibly, these tracks will be intended for their new album which I am assured, will be a phenomenal product of darkness! Masterful handwriting! http://www.exordiummors.com 13/13

Novelty from French INFERNO Records (006 release). This time we deal with representatives of an underground from solar Bulgaria, with the nice girl on vocal work (Maria Doychinova).Up to notice that it possesses courageous enough and strong voice. Music for me was a fine retro of such grandees CLASSIC HEAVY / POWER METAL as HELLOWEEN / JUDAS PRIEST / IRON MAIDEN. Good very time for metal! This group perfectly combines melodious fragments and fidelity to traditions of the present metal spirit! The music found by Freedom! A variety of guitar parties creating passing from one melody in another draw in detail a certain atmosphere of the fantastic and mystical world by what in due time were remembered “The keeper of seven keys”! RAMPART have not shown anything new, but for metal they sincerely enough show the records. INFERNO Records have let out one more continuation HEAVY METAL of production after Chilean VASTATOR. http://www.inferno-records.net 10/13

Voice of the wilderness

The music of RAMPART follows the concept that life is frequently a range of people and events. The memories are fading with time. They earn the taste of something we lived throughRampart, something exciting – the apparition and the reality of the original heavy metal.
The guitar player Yavor Kamenov and the drummer Borislav “Bobby” Glavev founded the band. The vocalist Maria Doychinova joined RAMPART in 2006. She wrote most of the band’s texts. Yavor is the author of the music and the arrangement of the songs. The guitar player Victor Georgiev and the bass player Alexander Spiridonov joined the band in 2009.
RAMPART focuses on the author’s stuff in the train of the old-school heavy metal. On 08.08.2008 RAMPART released their debut singleRampart “Warriors”. It has a good feedback from the metal media in Bulgaria, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Norway and Denmark. The band aims to achieve the mission to be a bastion of the metal music in Bulgaria.
RAMPART signed to the French label INFERNO RECORDS for the release of their first album “Voice of the Wilderness”. The album is filled with melodies, rhythms, double guitar solos and surprising orchestrations. In “Voice of the Wilderness” as a guest musician took part Sofia Vancheva . She recorded the violins, the viola and the cello in the song called “Age of Steel”. The album was recorded at Pacific Studio and should be out in the autumn of 2009 via INFERNO RECORDS.
