FREE SPIRIT-All the Shades of Darkened Light
Release date: Febuaray 28, 2014
Available at http://www.aorheaven.com/
I just listened to the long awaited sophomore release from FREE SPIRIT "All The Shades of a Darkened Night", and it was well worth the wait! I first heard "LIVING TATTOO" and I thought to myself, the boys from Finland are back!!! What a rockin' tune and that was just the beginning!
The boys continue to rock with songs like "HYSTERIA, FEVER, and NIGHT OF PARADISE" then slow it down a bit with "SILENCE". But by far my two favorite songs are "CARRY ON and THE DEW OF THE ROSE". The hook in "DEW" is just amazing! The Whole CD rocks and the recording and production are top notch. If you'er a Free Spirit fan, you will not be disappointed, and if you're not already a fan...YOU WILL BE!!!

RAVEN X-Essence Without Light
Release date: March 13, 2013
Available at BAT ZUGE RECORDS
The highly anticipated debute CD, "Essence Without Light " from RAVEN X is a must have!
After listening to their demos, the two songs I really wanted to check out first were "Immortal Beloved & Take the Pain"
I really love what they did with these songs, especially adding the acoustic guitar to "Take the Pain", it completed the song..
The first single from the CD, "Angel of the night"...very dark and gothic. Khaos' playing and production skills are genius and we get to hear
Nyx's powerful growls. And on their cover of King Diamond's " Sleepless Nights ", they nailed it, killer cover! Nyx's voice shines!
This is their debut CD and just the beginning for RAVEN X, and I can't wait to hear to what's coming next!
Khaos - all instruments & music
Nyx - all vocals & lyrics

PROSODY-The Dawn of Brutality
Release date: May 21,2013
Available at LAST.FM
Hailing from N.E. Pennsylvania, comes Prosody with their debut CD " The Dawn of Brutality "
From beginning to end, this CD definitely brings the brutality! Prosody delivers a punch to the teeth with tracks like,
" the dawn of brutality & victim of the zodiac " And I was really diggin' the heavy groove of "cleansed in agony & end of your world "
The song that really stood out to me was " slave of addiction " . Very heavy and you can hear just how tight this bands plays together.
All in all, this is TRUE METAL and I'm eagerly awaiting their follow up CD!
