Párodos – Catharsis (2017) – Review

The RMR offices just reviewed the icy Black Metal album Kwintessens of Dodecahedron dealing with some sort of a rebirth cycle. Understandably, birth, death, rebirth are – for some at least – pretty important. Even if this specific dogma is not really supported by the Holy See. So it is doubly spicy to see another such record appearing from Salerno in Italy of all places. A country more known for its catholic values, rather than its progressive undercurrents. With an offering of some Black Metal to boot. And that genre infested by the goat is usually not too visible in this country. Even if a pretty active community exists alright, make no mistake. Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Newsflash: Funeralglade begin some funeral!

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Funeralglade - May The Funeral Begin - Album CoverThis one really rocks. But in a lost identity, total head-banger kind of way. And I am confused. Because the Finnish boys from Funeralglade got a label of Melodic Death Metal stuck to themselves, they said. Of the Northern kind, they said. 

Yet out comes something called May The Funeral Begin. The RMR crew had to descend to the basement and let the big boxes rip. And in the process detected a mix of Arch Enemy, a hint of crabby Abbath and NordWitch. So, something blackened yet melodic and totally metal, kind of simmering in the dark abysses of their very special version of Hel.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Newsflash: A New Breed by Crucify The Faith!

Apple Music Badge

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Crucify The Faith - New Breed - Album CoverWoe! Now I feel crucified, too. And it is not the normal culprits of the ritual metal department that did the deed this time. No, Metalcore did it, of all things. 

I just finished with the newest EP New Breed from the Finnish gig Crucify the Faith. And let me tell ya, I already yearn for seconds, it is that good.

Talk about furious crunch, this band really puts the pedal to the proverbial metal. This sounds (and feels) like someone dropped a little extra into my energy drink of the day. And now I am feeling the effects going at 320 mph.

However, it is not only speed and whacking a metal baseball bat around your ears.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
