RockmusicRaider Review - Rotting Christ - Triarchy of the Lost Lovers - Album CoverThe new year is still fresh, so what better moment than this one to reflect on some old metal for a change. Old? ’90s are old? Well, yeah, if you look at the rapid-fire development all things metal took since then. We sure show a totally different landscape today, if compared to all these years ago. And for sure again if you look at the style changes Rotting Christ took over the years to the present day. Triarchy of the Lost Lovers really took a fresh look at things and delivered powerfully well.

In essence, 1996 was a year of turning points of sorts!

This was the year where the mad cow hit the UK.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Review - Amorphis - Elegy - 1996 - Album CoverWe write the Year of the Lord 1996. Amorphis just about came to some real fame with their heavy and very Death Metal oriented 2nd studio album Tales from the Thousand Lakes. Everyone now eagerly awaited something similar from their next concoction.  

Now here comes their 3rd studio brainchild Elegy. And what have we found? A hellufa change: Amorphis is happily throwing in Folk and synthie pop elements. Stuff laced with very heavy Melodic Death Metal – growls and all. This mixes with good old Heavy Metal, atmospheric passages and ’70s style parts on keyboards and guitars. You got it all. I can thus fully understand why Elegy got very mixed reviews back in time and ever since.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
