Album Of The Month

From The Vaults

OK so you haven't brushed it off since 1998 - but that doesn't mean this oft overlooked gem doesn't have stonking great tracks. Blaze Bayley's finest hour!

It’s here. Dublin tech metal futurists Vile Regression have given us the stream of their new album – think Gojira, Cynic, Death and Animals As Leaders. Holy moly!

There’s been much debate about exactly how good this new album from metal veterans Judas Priest is. Some say its solid – others that its geriatric.

Our man however reckons it more than stands up to criticism, with a platter of new Priest standards and some bona fide anthems.

frontravensire

They’ve already done a split with Belfast’s heavy metal heroes Terminus, and they’ll play Dublin at the end of the summer. They’re Ravensire – and they’re epic.

Their Manilla Road and Slough Feg influenced traditional metal is winning more and more fans. And with that amazing fantasy artwork, they’re only gonna grow. Michael Joy talks to the band.
