 Band: Angel Sword Release: Ripping the Heavens (EP) Genre: Traditional Heavy Metal Country: Finland Year: 2013 Label: Self-Released Download Facebook Review I was recently contacted by Jerry Razors from the mighty Angel Sword to include their newest EP onto the blog for your listening pleasure.  These dudes play a raw and gritty style of heavy metal, whereby the vocals surely accentuate a certain “punk” atmosphere to the band’s repertoire.  Although the whole listening experience is fairly short, each track delivers that same burst of energy needed to make you come back for more.  All in all, this is nothing...

Review I was recently contacted by the bass guitarist of Eternal Thirst, Hugo Alvarez, with the hopes of possibly adding his band’s material onto the blog.  Now I normally don’t accept such offers, mainly because I am usually contacted by bands that I don’t simply like enough to reveal to the metal community.  Nevertheless, I have always known that the right band, with the right sound would finally come...
