AMMUNITION - Shanghaied

AVALON 2014

After WIG WAM’s inglorious end, I expected frontman Age Sten Nilsen to pick up his solo career that he started back in 2009 with the album „Glamunition“. Instead of that he and songwriting-partner Erik Martensson (ECLIPSE, W.E.T.) formed a new band also consisting of Hal Patino (ex-PRETTY MAIDS) and Robban Bäck (SABATON, ECLIPSE) among others. In light of this line-up it the musical direction of AMMUNTION is self-defining. The 12 song feature an extremely high ear candy- and feel good-factor as you know it from WIG WAM. The songwriting moves on constantly high and varied level a la ECLIPSE. And the mix of melodiness and heaviness is on par with the PRETTY MAIDS even though AMMUNITION don’t sound so heavy. Another plus of “Shanghaied” is its sleazy guitar- and its massive drum sound, both reminding me of Mike Clink-productions like GUNS N ROSES and ROXY BLUE. It’s a little unfair to give any song a special mention as the whole album rocks big time, but my personal favourites are the fiery groover “Tie Me Down”, the Folk-influences power ballad “Road To Babylon”, the heavy “Hit Me With Your Bombs” and the vicious rocker “Another Piece Of Me”. I know, the new year has just begun, but I am sure that “Shanghaied” will make its way on numerous best of-lists for 2015.

HATE - CRVSADE: ZERO

NAPALM RECORDS 2015

Release:                25-01-2015
Origin:                    Poland
Length:                  51:43


Still the best way to transfer your religious Hate, is by creating and making music. Not by entering a Jewish supermarket or a newspaper office and display your hatred upon (hu)mankind. And when your band is also called Hate, no arguments or discussions are needed.

In the end there are originators and there are (too many) followers… this counts for religions as well as for music. As long as these different views don’t lead to crusades of hate and conflict; no attacks will be made and zero victims will be counted apart from the spoken or musical ones...

This polish Hate is already flowing since 1990 and has committed many physical attacks throughout the years. This is their 9th crusade to reach for more believers and convince their religious technical industrial death metal followers.

After this furious attack shatters of Vader bombs are all over the place, Decapitated metal pieces are found in the bodies of the victims, many traces of Behemoth pow(d)er for the ignition and some single “Dies Irae” bullets to convince the last living unbelievers.

This "Crusade: Zero” shows once more how big the influence of Behemoth is on the (polish) death metal movement and how Hate have transferred the ideology and atmospheres of „The Satanist” perfectly into their own technical and slightly industrial death metal ideologies. Listen to the first songs of this new album and you are fully blown into pieces!

Every song is a complete attack, every riff is killing and every single second is building up your hatred towards religions, believers and mankind in general. Join this crusade, because …


… Je suis Hate…

THULCANDRA - ACSENSION LOST

NAPALM RECORDS 2015

Release: 30-01-2015
Origin:   Germany
Length:  45:49

Twenty years after the almighty "Storm of the Light’s Bane”, it looks like the rebirth of Dissection’s music in 2015, with new releases by Thulcandra and Trident.

Especially Thulcandra have already established a small legacy with their first 2 releases and are now ready to make the past alive. Starting with a beautiful blue colored "Necrolord" cover is the perfect opening to enter these fathomless depths of mighty, mystic and mysterious music.

Dwell within 10 songs and re-live the magic of a unique black metal genre once created by Thulc… the mighty Dissection. Melodic, cold and touching riffs, incredible frosty and moving guitar solos (lots of them; it proves again that metal needs much more solos!) and the essence of what melodic black metal is and should be all about.

Dissection’s musical legacy has (and will) never be reached, but with their new release "Ascension Lost" bands like Thulcandra come very close.

Do yourself a favor and reincarnate the past!! For those who don’t know Dissection at all, start with the originators, before you loose the essence… ascension.
