Therapy? - Disquiet

Therapy? is a band with two faces. On the one hand, we have the experimental, non-conformist Therapy? that is willing to go into all kinds of crazy, unusual territory, as evidenced by monuments to quirkiness such as Nurse, Suicide Pact - You First and Crooked Timber. On the other, we have the Therapy? that is constantly trying to recapture the glory of their greatest hit Troublegum with relatively polite and formulaic albums such as Shameless, Never Apologise Never Explain or One Cure Fits All. Alas, in 2015, with Disquiet we find ourselves staring straight at that second face.

Pyramaze - Disciples Of The Sun

Many of you are already familiar with the awesome progressive power metal of Danish Pyramaze. Yet, others among you may only know them as the band that Matt Barlow joined after his post-Iced Earth absence from metal, only to leave after recording one album, re-join Iced Earth, then quit again. Nonetheless, Pyramaze was great before and they're still pretty damn great. This Disciples Of The Sun, seven years since their last record, is easily their best yet.

Waltari - You Are Waltari

When reviewing their previous album, I complained that Waltari is no longer as adventurous and crazy as they used to be in the past. Well, apparently they must have read my review since even they now concede that I am Waltari (yes - ME) and that I am the one who knows best what Waltari should sound like.
