RockmusicRaider - Fer de Lance - Colossus - Album Cover

You’ve got those rare metal pieces that just talk to you. Those that project this visceral connection to your metallic inner self if you get my drift. And this is the way it should be. Metal that docks onto your brain receptors like there’s no tomorrow. Whoever needs vitamins, when you can have all sorts of metal, right?

The debut EP Colossus of Fer de Lance is one of those. A truly epic mix of Heavy, Doom and – yes – some pretty slow-motion, crazily tilted Power Metal that took the RMR office suite by storm.

True, the band is … [...] Click to raid more!

Colosso and their newest EP Apocalypse stepped right into this panicked mess our lives have become lately. And they do that with a Death Metal piece that I have rarely seen done this way lately. A varied piece of Extreme Metal served with a skill that matches the masters of dissonance … [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider - Eulogy - Memento Mori - Album Cover

Okay, it’s time again to reach into the depths of our review pipe and pull one of those records out at random.

And the winner is – Eulogy with their newest EP that just released late February of 2020.

The piece talks about Memento Mori, this terrible reminder of the inevitability of death. A solemn and serious theme, and a pretty difficult one to pick for a 17-minute blurb. This is indeed a subject that seriously occupied the creative brains of a multitude of philosophers, writers, and musicians over time. And even on this blog it already made an [...] Click to raid more!
