Newsflash: A Morte Ad Mortem by Gort!

Rockmusicraider Newsflash - Gort - A Morte Ad Mortem - Album CoverLooks like Italy is going to be on the forefront these days of early fall 2017 when it comes to Black Metal. RMR just covered the New Age Black Metal outfit Parodos. A band that does not fit the Norwegian definition of this genre at all. Yet still gets you an interesting mix of styles that includes at least some spiked fisting. And they managed to keep enough of our deck crew’s interest to get them a review.

But sometimes you still need the real thing. The Black Metal played in the dungeon with THE GOAT watching you from the wall. Way down there, where the mainstream never looks and others don’t venture.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - On Top - Top Dollar - Album CoverWasn’t I just cruisin’ along these older and newer Hard Rock and Heavy Metal records? Boring down well-worn wormholes to them offerings always does my soul good. And stellar rock and metal they used to produce and still do to this day.

So, surfing about my review pipeline later I came across a sound reminiscent to what I just heard. On Top is their name and their new EP Top Dollar is their game. And by Jove, they come along with a remarkable swagger, throwing their Heavy Metal and Hard Rock infused rock’n’roll at you with a vengeance. A fair dose of Iron Maiden, some (and only some) thrashy snazziness of Metallica and a hint of Dio.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...
