DOWNCAST TWILIGHT – Under the Wings of the Aquila Review


DOWNCAST TWILIGHT – Under the Wings of the Aquila

Stygian Crypt Productions


DOWNCAST TWILIGHT originate from the United Kingdom, but there is also a Greek element here. Actually the band was an idea and was founded by mixing and mastering engineer OGrego who asked the help of the Greek author Marios Koutsoukos (he has written some really good novels) on the lyrical part. So, two years after the creation of the band DOWNCAST TWILIGHT released their debut album under the title “Under the Wings of the Aquila”.

DUNGEON WOLF – Slavery or Steel Review


DUNGEON WOLF – Slavery or Steel

Independent


I think that we have to make some points about the social background of heavy metal music in order to understand what DUNGEON WOLF are doing here with their debut album. You see metal music was born in the town of Birmingham, United Kingdom. This was a town that in 20th century had many industries and of course it was a town full of workers. It is from that working class that metal started and it was the music which helped the youth back then to express their objection to the oppression they felt or even provoke the structures of the preservative society. Also it worked as a way to escape from reality. I think all these are elements that I personally miss from the heavy metal music which was actually turned into heavy metal music industry and cares mostly about the sales and always tries to be politically correct in order to do so. Thank god, however, the underground has always been the core that kept this music alive even in the most difficult times. DUNGEON WOLF as their name suggests are a child of this underground heavy metal movement.

KRULL – Metal Swords and Fire EP Review


KRULL – Metal Swords and Fire EP

Independent


KRULL from Brazil have a rather complicated story, because they have changed quite a few names in order to end to this one which If I am not mistaken is taken by the great fantasy/science fiction movie of the 80’s (yes you have to see this film If you haven’t till now). Anyway, the band started in mid 1998 (the late 90’s were a great era for the heavy metal sound) under the name SUPREMA which in 2001 changed into ETERNAL FATE. Under this name they released 3 EPs with the titles “Warrior Angel” in 2003, “Promised Land” in 2005 and “Metal Swords and Fire” in 2008. The last one actually helped the band to be noticed by the underground metal scene. The band split up in 2014 and it came back in 2015 under a new name and lineup. Yep, the name is KRULL.
