Guardians Of Time - Rage And Fire

Norway isn't well-known for power metal when compared to neighbours Sweden, but Guardians Of Time are more than capable of matching the quality of just about any power metal band on the scene today. This is the fourth studio album, released after their return in 2011, and it is easily a contender for power metal album of the year. A Beautiful Atrocity showed a change in style for the band, with a more progressive quality to the music. However it would be completely wrong of me to say that the band has ever written generic power metal as I think they have already created a signature sound that makes them instantly recognisable over many other bands in the genre. Rage And Fire isn't as progressive as their previous effort, but it is heavy, melodic and catchy from start to finish.

Dead River Runs Dry

A charred black slab of ruthless venom that only a country like Australia could spit out, Dead River Runs Dry is an obsession with the annihilation of constraint, a savage reaction to existence as determined by ignorance and an insight into further paradigms that are offered through experience alone.

After receiving accolades from around the globe for their ominous Winter 2012 release and delivering a series of blistering live performances on Australia's eastern front, Dead River Runs Dry's debut album, Hierophants Of The Storm is available now.

Cradle Of Filth - Hammer Of The Witches

It must be tough to be Dani Filth right now. The voice of your early career has left you and the one thing you can still properly sing is some gentle gothic metal as last seen on the Godspeed On The Devil's Thunder album. However, for this kind of music your chief songwriter has just left you. The departure of Paul Allender was both sad and promising. He is a great guitarist, yet most fans can agree that the band was in bloom at the times he wasn't around. That is why I personally had some hopes. But as it often turns out in the end, he should not have left.

Oracles

Founded in summer 2008, System Divide quickly became a transnational project with in its rank vocalists Sven De Caluwe (Aborted) and Miri Milman (ex-Distorted), longtime friends Cole Martinez (ex-Years Of Fire, Antenora), Andrew Lenthe (Antenora) and Mike Heller (Malignancy). System Divide set out to revolutionize the conventions of the over-saturated melodic death metal genre, proving that extreme metal can have more depth than blast beats, while female vocals do not have to conform to the precepts of the "Goth" genre. In mixing many styles, The Collapse, the band's debut EP breaks all the rules of extreme metal and is a landmark release for the young band.
