HELLHOUND demo-CD 2010 (USA)
Program of plate: Circle of trust / As the needle drips / The bleeding edge / Killing spree in 2010

If you dig on various archaeological excavations, it is precisely this HELLHOUND can be considered one of the oldest formations of metal from the USA. Judge for yourself, they were formed in 1981 and behind them there are only a few demos. Then there was a long break and a series of shifts in the composition. Now they have returned with a relatively fresh material in the spirit of HEAVY / SPEED Metal with a slight touch of the POWER Metal dust. It will be interesting to those who love the sound of it, which we gave in the mid-80s: JUDAS PRIEST / SANCTUARY / MEGADETH etc. This is the old and ringing metal, which we listened to on vinyl records and copied to tape to share music with friends. HELLHOUND after that amount of time required to simply produce full-length album, without any delay whatsoever … The Old Guard metal fans waiting! / hellhoundusa


Бля! Какой длинный альбом для Катьки-целых 11 минут и это  раза в два длиннее по времени предшественника “Rossini s r@pe” (2000). Поклоняйтесь же за это ей! Великая KAT создала вендетту за её родной истерзанный Нью-йорк в виде кромсающей / классической CYBER SPEED METAL симфонии. На колени рабы! Я решила вступить в конфронтацию с этими варварами моей SHRED / CLASSIC MUSIC!!! – заявляет гениально – сексуально – виртуозная богиня – Бетховен 21 века! Страшитесь же! ТЬФУ! Мы вот долго как то спорили с Barbarossa стёб это или нет? Может это деньги Сороса? Весь этот её пафос насчёт собственной гениальности никакой рейтинг не подымает, тем более что всплыла она ещё в 87 году с грамотным трэшняковым релизом “Worship me or die”. Последние её старания сводятся к извращённому переигрыванию произведений дядек, что висели на стенках в кабинетах музыки из нашего далёкого школьного детства. Так что короткие гитарные запилы обрываются раньше чем вы рассмотрите обложку к CD-тут наш гений во всей своей гламурной  красе: камуфлированные подвязки, каска на бекрень, пулемётные ленты на лобке, в одной руке граната, в другой Jakson из которого валится дым! Интересно чему посвятит свой следующий релиз безумная гитаристка?

RAMPART Voice of the wilderness

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. 10/13

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 .
