egendary Finnish symphonic metal band returned to the stage in style. After the release of worse with Anette Olzon’s a relief to hear again vocals that can meet the demands of a technically perfect cocoa band Nightwish. s expected another amazing album from start to finish takes the listener into another dimension Sasna. Texts are inspared by nature and they are talking about moving in to another world, and liberation of the soul from reality, gives a new dimension to the band and in a hole genre.

A

nd The fact that the production and technique are perfect it would be inappropriate to talk about it as this is one of the few bands that they have proven themeselfes form the beginning and their superiority in these areas, and stayed true to it to this day.

T

he only thing they gone little too far is adding too many folk “decorations”.

F

innish pagan metal band returned after a long time with the new edition, which is very bad. On this album can be seen here not in compliance sound, technical way of playing and in almost all present inconsistency, as well as attempts of this band that sounds different and more folk as this is an integral part of pagan metal. They have completely turned from the course and went to the other in the direction in certain moments on the album.Vokal is also not fit with sound, sounds chaotic. As I said in certain moments on the album does not sound like pagan metal but an attempt evocation of pagan music, which ended in the attempt moved to another genre that does not fall into pagan music or pagan metal. Technical incompetence, but in the individual moments aligned, although this compliance is not complete. Acoustics is good. Production is not so bad but not ideal. Ensiferum is considered one of the best pagan metal bands but this release have lost that status.

orwegian black metal band that is not quite as well known to the public launched a new edition that is classic black metal releases and a real black metal influence on what the genre itself is. On this album it can be seen that the production is very bad but this can be heard in all black metal bands, the band is harmonized technically, acoustics are good.Also technically the band does not give up at any point, nor has moments in which something wronge .This edition brinks you in cold, depressive world, of course this also means that this is a Norwegian band and it has Norwegian true influence .Bend is absolutely the true Norwegian black metal in its own glory.This band is anonymous and deserves greater attention from the listeneres.

merican death metal legendes returned after a long time with a new edition which is fantastic and classic as well as all their previous editions.This album is full of brutality and rawness of death metal, technical way of playing is almost gone to perfection , production is fenomenal, acoustics are great, they remeanted true to themesefs and unchaned. Six Feet Under will always remaind synonymous death metal band as well as a few other bands that can compete with this. They will always remain a symbol of the brutality, the coarseness and horroric terror that death metal genre has.

P

ortugal black metal band is back with a new edition which is in essence an average not perfect but an average in a good way .On this album can be readily observed that production is guilty of a technical error, which the band has Technical moments on this release are not fully integrated, and in some moments are complete, technical way of playing is great but not completely. Production is poor and therefore technically the band can not fully convey what they can show. Acoustics is great, this album may be seen that the influence of the album is depressing, takes you into a state of holplessness and true evil .This band has some guality which exsits for a long time and no one had heard of this band and it is completely anonymous deserves more listeners because it is a great band.

etherlands Symphonic black metal thrown the new edition, which is a real artistic genius. On this album can it be seen that the band did not change their way of playing, nor is not changing the way in which their music is presented, also it can be heard the influence of theater as an unusual combination with black metal, they created the story with this release, the real play, of course creativity is indisputable on this album. Technical way of playing is almost gone to the ideal. And phenomenally blended with simphonych work release. Acoustics is awesome, the production is phenomenal, the band itself is a very unique and unusual band should be listened because it is all what art is, and of course listening to this release that takes you to an enchanting magical world of the darkness and death, art and real symphonic metal, , but it remindes me more of the Symphonic metal with black metal influences. All in all a phenomenal band that is almost anonymous and not very much known to the public band that enchants with his music and creativity and takes you into their world of art as they see it.

innish metal band who broke the boundaries and barriers in music when it comes to the metal itself, introducing classical symphony music in the metal and making it richer and better.They released and expelled a new edition of which is by all but good, its very bad .On this album it can be immediately noticed that this band has chosen a very bad singer that representes this release, music and of course it can immediately noticed that the band had gone to commercial music, they intorced metal in a totaly diferent way. And that is possible to create with symphonic instruments a real metal sound that can only be done by virtuosos, but there were completely ruined with this release, technical way of playing a bit different compared to their earlier works, Acoustics is great, the production is phenomenal, this album is nothing like symphonic metal, this is a commercial approach to new audiences in a few moments their where old influences which made them famous, but not good enough to get a better impression about this edition .Apocalyptica is the band who were a very influential and musical role models and those who listen by the musicians but they are completely gone to the other extreme and surrendered to the full impact of commercial music and lose

ormer Swedish black metal band released a new edition of which is complex and arranged so that each moment on the album masterfully blended. On this album, the album can be seen as I said, the complexity, creativity, coherence and the way in which the band presents itself. Technicaly is great almost ideal, acoustics is a super production is phenomenal. Everything is closed, of course the album is full of the influence of avant-garde music, atmospheric, even has a symphony. All of this is integrated and attuned phenomenal. Creativity on this album shows how the band knows how to a particular genre of music made to sound like a real work of art, for this band it can only be said that it should listen to the their releases because in them their is true essence of the music itself and a combination of several genres, which indicates that music is still music if it was a good fit on any genre of music and metal music. The band is worthy of attention and listening to the band deserves a larger audience is diverse, and they are virtuosos of sound and proved it.

CANNIBAL CORPSE •HAMMER SMASHED FACE­

D

o you sometimes wish that you break someones face. If you hate someone so much that you wish to rip apart his face and to torture him until he dies, this song is a completely awakening primordial evil and hatred, anger that prevails you to smash someones face, rip up his flesh, torturing him while he screams and your soul is filed with happines, satisfaction increases, the pain of the victim satisfated you, you have to kill,you earg to kill, you want blood, anxious of expression for victim face while killing the victim. Of course this song absolutely in everyone brings out the greatest evil in man the hatred, anger, dissatisfaction, sadism. And more times each of us wants to torture and kill someone is debatable, since wants to do it , as song said everyone wants to smash someone's face with a hammer or other desirable instrument to say that they find themeselfs still have a choice, the whole song is absolutely sadistic evil led by most horrific hate and anger.
