An excellent, and thoroughly recommended, first EP to treasure. Well worth checking out. 8
Best heard as a complete piece, ideally with the lights dimmed low, [triangle] is a remarkable album and another testament to the judgement of Les Acteurs De L’ombre productions. 9
An intelligent and entertaining extravaganza of power metal set in the gunslinging wild west. Head and shoulders above it's peers, 'Gunmen' is most certainly worth your time. 8
Final Coil, whose acclaimed debut is out today, have launched a video clip for 'In Silent Reproach'.
Yet, for all the insanity, Rings of Saturn never forget the value of a great riff or the sheer ecstasy of head banging and there are plenty of examples of the former and opportunities for the latter sprinkled liberally through the album like a fine cosmic dust. I’m too damn tired to know if I like ‘Utta Ulla’ yet, but goddam it’s an awe-inspiring piece of work! 9
Super-fans will want the super-deluxe edition and I can understand that, even if I can’t entirely condone the cost. More irritating is the somewhat lacklustre 2-disc version which seems poorly served both in terms of packaging and content. 10 (for the music); 6 (for the package).
'Live beyond the spheres' is out now from Nuclear Blast Records
