Manilla Road - Mysterium

Manilla Road is a strange case. It had always been like that with this “cult” & underground band. They do have die-hard fans all over the world and especially in Greece… but they also have lots of MR-haters. This is probably to Mark’s “odd” - love it or hate it - voice. I had never been into them that much but I can’t ignore albums like “Open the Gates” that are a milestone to the epic heavy/power metal genre.

Acid Death - MisleD gets a re-release

“Misled/Deformed Beyond Belief” was ACID DEATH’s split LP w/ Spanish Death Metallers AVULSED. It was released in 1995 by the legendary Greek label MOLON LAVE records only on limited edition-red vinyl.
This was band’s first and last 12” release that period that could be described as “The Thrash/Death Days”… Back then it was really “hard-to-find” one copy of this release and the band wasn’t able to promote it due to compulsory military obligations that were a real curse for every band in Greece those years…

Nightglow sign with logic(il)logic records

Martiria - Roma S.P.Q.R.

Martiria were formed back in 1987 when power metal, epic metal & doom metal music was on their prime. Those were some damn good years. Having been influenced by that era and from bands like Manowar, Warlord, Candlemass and so on, they are telling their heroic stories accompanied by pure metal.

Lost Society reveal debut album details

17, 18, 19, 19. No, that’s not today’s lottery numbers, but the age of the band members of Finland’s most promising contemporary newcomer combo. Founded early 2010 in Jyväskylä by thrash/speed metal enthusiast Samy Elbanna, the front man gathered an ensemble of passionate allies around him to establish a band that soon should become known as the most energetic up-and-comers Scandinavia had seen in years – LOST SOCIETY!
