The winter edition of the “Greek Salad” series returns with another lot of great Greek band releases…

The diversity and the quality of the material that arrives in our mailboxes for review, is consistently high. New bands and young artists have to compete within a tight economical environment where the oversupply of artistic output (unfortunately) surpasses the audience demand. From our side we keep our commitment of being objective and sincere in our opinions…

I have to admit that I do not really pay much attention to instrumental albums. I prefer my music to have substance than being a pure exhibitionism and a demonstration of playing skills (which we have to admit that most of the guitarist instrumental albums are)…

Haven’t posted in this section for long and this was somehow intentional as some of our previous review posts seem to have made certain bands unsatisfied…well yes, we may have been strict to certain artists who trusted us by sending their promos for review but one thing that we can assure the readers of this blog is that we have and will always be honest and respectful. We are music lovers who purchase with our own money the majority of the material presented in this blog and in our Facebook page. This offers us the independence and the integrity we would like to retain as long as this blog stays on line. After all we are only in it for the music !

We continue with the second part of this months reviews…

On April 18th, Revenant Dead are releasing their new (and third) album Heroes without Villains. We had the opportunity to be offered with an advanced listening of the album and what we heard was interesting enough to convince us to write a small presentation, including reviews of their previous two releases

The increase in the number of Greek band releases that come under our radar has led to an increase in the frequency of the “I like my music, just like my salad…Greek” series of posts…a definitely positive fact…

A presentation of an underrated gem of the Czech metal scene brings into the surface the question regarding the connection between music and politics. In other words, are we allowed to like the music of artists like Ted Nugent or Aleš Brichta when their personal politics are moronic ? I let each one of you give the answer for himself…
