REVIEW : Reach --- The Great Divine (2018, Sun Hill Production)

Back in 2015, a new band from Sweden (where else?) with the name REACH jumped out of nowhere and offered us a really solid debut album that included some excellent songs in it, attitude and left a big promise for the future to come. With their debut opus, "Reach Out To Rock", Reach sounded fresh, melodic and creative. Nowadays, the band is finally back with a brand new record with the title "The Great Divine".

REVIEW : Innfight --- Black Dog (2018, April 2018)

It's been already 2,5 years since the release of INNFIGHT's debut album with the title "Boulevard Of Pain". That was, and still remains, a very interesting slice of pure modern melodic metal stuff with some killer tunes in it, passion and powerful performances.

Formed from the depths of the much revered Manchester (UK) metal scene, Screaming Beast fuse heavy metal and the swagger of the deep south to bring you groovy and bluesy melodic metal. Influences of the band include:  Black Label Society, Pantera, Lamb of God, Strapping Young Lad, Machine Head, In Flames, Dream Theater, At the Gates, The Haunted, Alter Bridge…. To name just a few.

The band began as the project of vocalist Anton War and drummer Daniel Mucs in the summer of 2013.  Once songs took shape, the band released the first EP “Blistering Lies” in February of 2014, followed by a second EP “To Assail and Conquer” in September 2015.

The songs on the album range from speedy power metal anthems to more mid paced traditional heavy metal songs and is an enjoyable piece of power metal. (Musipedia Of Metal)
