Helloween is a German power metal band founded in 1984 in Hamburg, Northern Germany by members of bands Iron Fist and Gentry. Its first line-up consisted of singer and guitarist Kai Hansen, bass guitarist Markus Grosskopf, guitarist Michael Weikath, and drummer Ingo Schwichtenberg. After the release of a self-titled EP and their debut album Walls of Jericho in 1985, it expanded into a quintet with the addition of singer Michael Kiske, Hansen choosing to focus on guitar instead. Under this line-up, they released the Keeper of the Seven Keys albums (1987 and 1988), which established Helloween as a notable heavy metal band and led to the creation of the power metal subgenre. However, Hansen left the band soon after the release of Part II and was replaced by Roland Grapow. After leaving Helloween Hansen formed Gamma Ray.

“Nine” is the second album of Swedish band Platitude. “Nine” offers everything in between AOR/melodic hard rock and progressive metal, sounds familiar, original and refreshing all at the same time, does not contain a single weak song - even bonus track “Supernova” is better than what most bands release these days - and has a sublime production by renowned knob twister Jacob Hansen.

I Am I is the new band that has been put together by former DragonForce frontman ZP Theart following on from what was evidently an acrimonious parting of the ways due to “insurmountable differences of opinion”. Aside from Z.P., I Am I is comprised of drummer Paul Clark Jr, bassist Neil Salmon and guitarist and co-songwriter Jacob Ziemba who excels on both counts. The band’s debut shows here in the UK back in the spring received strong reviews and it therefore comes as no surprise to find that Event Horizon is a top quality release of barnstorming melodic metal anthems.

“Legends” can be summed up as high quality, symphonic Power Metal with ass-kicking melody inserts, powerful guitars and lyrics with insight. As far as DRAGONY’s overall sound goes, one finds similarities with bands such as Edguy, Kamelot, Sabaton and Stratovarius. Guest musicians: Tom Tieber (Ecliptica), Katie Joanne (Siren’s Cry) and Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear).

'Covered In Black is a highly melodic affair, it is also challenging in a way none of previous albums are. Dealing with, and dedicated to, people in dark places, this albums has a darker and more complex edge to it. Allowing ourselves to dig deeper into our collective pool of musical experiences and knowledge, the inspirations come from far across the spectrum. Ranging from classical chamber music, seventies prog and extending to thrash, with very eastern influences popping up,this is an album that is best heard as one piece, even if the individual tracks can stand on their own. Since we've come this far we also allowed ourselves that freedom. Is it a concept album? No. But it is a theme album. About people in dark places. From psychopaths, assassins to the more modern topics of being at the receiving end of what is bad about social media. Topics of lifelong failure and revenge are touched upon. The ten-song-long album has two suites, both consisting of three songs. One has the songs spread here and there on the album, while the other is connected as one long piece if you wish to listen to it that way. Wonderfully old-fashioned and just the way we like it. And it is, we feel, simply the best album we've ever done.'

“The time is drawing near. The newborn BEAST is back with a vengeance, rising from the abyss with fortitude to spew its unrivaled heavy metal fury all over the world!” »Berserker« kicks off with the rapid opener 'Beast In Black'. “As well as the band name, this track was inspired by a character from the »Berserk« manga. And though the lyrics are directly connected to that character they are also speaking in metaphors about something personal. It’s one of the most powerful songs on the album and Kasperi’s guitar solo in this one is probably the best one on the whole album!” With 'Blind And Frozen', a super catchy and massive song follows. “Yannis' interpretation and performance here is nothing short of pure perfection,” the guitar wizard fancies…

What could be a better title for your sophomore album than Next Level? It suggests progress and growth in development of a band. For Sweden's Fullforce, at the very least, it implies that they're increasing or advancing the strengths delivered on their debut One. Fullforce remains a very skilled, expert, melodic heavy metal band. They can be quite heavy and assertive, adding power metal to their arrangements, as on Whispers or Karma. Of course pure metal finds its way in Mysterious Way. Yet they also seem to up the groove in their metal on Next Level, something familiar from the previous work, now accentuated on tunes like Broken Dreams, Visions, Back to Life.

Although this album is called ''Wasteland'', the impressions it brings are those of wonderland. Atargatis play a genuine style of metal. This album, although labelled as gothic or symphonic is neither. It is 2 bright to be gothic, and is not enough bombastic to be symphonic…

Hey look, the weirdest inside joke in all of metal is still going strong. Backstory: Masters of Disguise is a throwback speed metal act living and breathing to pay homage to a particularly obscure band from the 80s called Savage Grace. Who, you ask? Exactly. They were a good band but barely got any traction or notoriety despite a pretty solid outing with 1986s After the Fall From Grace. Now Masters of Disguise (named after Grace‘s debut album) seek to revive their hero’s nonexistent legacy due to some highly tenuous ties to the original singer.
