Bands
Warbeast

With the "retro-thrash" trend in full-swing and hordes of bands trying to re-create "old school metal", Texas monsters Warbeast offer the real thing. Their music is not the result of careful study of thrash or classic metal from the 1980's; it just comes naturally because that is who they are. Krush The Enemy, their debut CD on Philip Anselmo's Housecore Records, features 10 tracks covering a wide range of metal terrain aimed squarely at the neck-snapping headbanger in the front row. For Warbeast, "metal" means high-speed riffing, thunderous double bass, roaring vocals and plenty of blazing guitar solos.

Kissin' Dynamite

Exciting, dangerous and explosive - that's Kissin' Dynamite. The swabian sleaze mezal commando lives up to it's name, 'cause Kissin' Dynamite is more than just a band, it's an attitue to life. And this feeling is, what those 5 rockstars impart with every second they stand on stage.

What the fans love about this group, that was born in 2006, is entertainment on the highest stage. Due to cool 80ies look, biggest playing passion, accuratest tightness and electrifying stageacting, you get an stimulus overkill, visually as well as acoustically.

Battle Hag - Tongue Of The Earth

The monastic intonations and ethereal, Middle Eastern guitar leads that introduce Battle Hag's debut are so auspicious that I wondered if they weren't preparing to overstep their advertised sludge/stoner boundaries. That proves not to be the case for the most part, as Tongue Of The Earth is avowedly stoner doom, but there are a few more touches of personality from time to time - and in any case there's something to be said for just doing one thing really well.
