RockmusicRaider Review - Amon Amarth - Jomsviking - Album CoverThe music really fits the theme. Even if they bemoan times long past and a mythology long out of fashion – the holy Roman church having taken over for some time now with some bloody vengeance too, by Loki. We are talking about Vikings and their doings, famous for invasions, violence and rape. This was a gore-laden time, but promising a lot of profit, if victorious. And they have been everywhere that could be reached on their little dragon boats. Perhaps the most famous actions being the invasions of the British isles back when the years were still counted in the hundreds and not the thousands.

The Swedish metallers Amon Amarth have been a stable brand in the Viking Metal genre, delivering a steady, if not somewhat repetitive, but always reliable mix of Death Metal infused Viking tales.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Review - Sorcerer - Shadow of the Inverted Cross - Album CoverYo, Baby, where u been all my life? A crystal clear mix of Heavy and Doom Metal coming out of my earphones just startled me awake. Oscillating between these two styles, but leaning more towards the doomish mix of nuts served with this Metal Long Island Ice Tea. 

A long time in the making, the new album ‘In the Shadow of the Inverted Cross’ of the Swedish Metal Band ‘Sorcerer’ is like a bunch of vitamins to a somewhat neglected field of this #Metal universe. Dark, magical, stepping right out of the mists of the treacherous moor onto the stage. I am so pleased that they have returned and produced something so corny and steadily metal.Got hooked?
