Latest Albums Reviews

IRON MAIDEN Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son

Album · 1988 · Heavy Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
I think this is their best album. Iron Maiden always flirted with prog rock, and Seventh Son... is the best example of how to make a prog metal album with mass appeal without being over indulgent or losing its edge. There are short and anthemic songs (Can I Play With Madness, The Evil That Men Do, The Clairvoyant), and most complex but catchy tracks (Infinite Dreams, the eponymous epic song).

After this album, they changed the direction and tried to make something more simple, a nod to the two first albums (I believe), but the music sounded a bit forced and the results weren't that great. Seventh Son is still the pinnacle of Maiden music in the 80's, and possibly their best album ever. Check it out!

HAUNT Flashback

Album · 2020 · Heavy Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
I think we already have a strong contender for Album of the Year!

Flashback is a new the release from the one man band Haunt. Everything here is made by the restless Trevor William Church, who doesn't only released another album under the Haunt moniker - the good Mind Freeze - but it's always working on a new EP of BEASTMAKER, his another band.

Despite this big production, Trevor always manages to keep the good quality of his music. This Flashback is no exception, and it's even better than most of Haunt discography. Great riffs, catchy chorus, and excellent hooks, with some subtle but interesting keyboards here and there. It's a short album too, so we end the listening session begging for more!

Recommendded album for the trad metalheads out there.

SURRA Virou Brasil

EP · 2019 · Crossover Thrash
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Yep, another EP from the brazilian hardcore/crossover thrash band Surra. Despite its short length (not even four minutes), this release shows a much varied sound: the first track is a genuine samba (no bullshit!) with anti-fascist lyrics. The second song is a straightforward hardcore. The very short "Não Entendi" is pure grindcore, no more no less. And, finally, "Caso Isolado" is a fast crossover track.

"Virou Brasil" is another strong EP from these guys, with a hilarious cover art, and works as an appetizer for their next full length, named "Escorrendo Pelo Ralo" (which already have a single). Go on, check it out!

RORCAL La Femme Sans Tête

EP · 2015 · Drone Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
My first drone album - and it was a pleasant experience!

Rorcal is a doom/drone/experimental band from Switzerland, specialized in huge tracks mixing atmospheric passages and crushing riffs. La Femme sans Tête is an EP (despite its half-hour lenght) containing one song divided in three movements.

The first track is calm and minimalist, with sparse sounds of electronics and some drumming. The second one brings noise and that marvellous crushing riffs. It's more varied than one can imagine, I even banged my head at some point! The third track follows this trend and end the album in a high note.

Good album, indeed. Recommended for fans of drone doom and experimental sounds.

SURRA Somos Todos Culpados

EP · 2015 · Crossover Thrash
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
"Somos Todos Culpados" (We Are All Guilty) is an EP from the brazilian hardcore band Surra.

Their sound is basically a blend of hardcore, crossover thrash and grindcore/powerviolence - the latter influences are more noticeable in the songs "Xerifão" (Big Sheriff) and Fim de Festa (End Of Party). It's also pretty evident the influence from other brazilian bands, like RATOS DE PORÃO and DFC.

It's a short release with only four songs, working more like an appetizer to the rest of their catalog. Bottom line, the music is pretty good and catchy, sometimes great, and, despite the language (all their releases are sung in portuguese), it's recommended to everyone who likes some violent hardcore with thrash influences.
