This band is hot. Very, very hot. And those aren't just empty words. After all, the Blues Company from Osnabrück, Germany is neither a hodgepodge of rank beginners nor - to borrow business lingo - a group of new business starters. Rather, they are a team of artists who have made their mark, musicians with experience and know-how aplenty. The musicians at work here have long since ensured that the name of their “company” is a recognised “seal of approval”. In a nutshell, “Blues Company” stands for German's longest-running and most successful blues band. And with each new recording, with each concert, these pros underscore that their passionate love affair with the blues is burning brightly as ever…
Lykaion is an Italian metal band, formed in 2003, and just recently signed onto Bakerteam Records. The band has had four previously self-released EPs, and their latest Nothing but Death is their first full length. Lykaion is a metal force to be reckoned with, combining many different genres into one. They have a dark, ethereal sound similar to that of Sentenced and Katatonia, but remain very true, emotional, raw, and heavy! Nothing but Death is a release to be proud of and combines all elements of heavy metal, power metal, and gothic rock. The instrumentation and vocals throughout the entire album are extremely professional, well recorded, well produced, and perfectly mixed. A definite quality release!
"…Invitation comes across as eclectic without sounding erratic or schizophrenic. This CD is enthusiastically recommended to anyone who is seeking something unpredictable from the blues."
is an album by , released in 1995 on Raging Bull Records. This album demonstrates that the still are formidable, powerful musicians nearly 20 years after their first record. However, that technical skill isn't enough to make the album a compelling listen. Though they play very well, the group has a difficult time coming up with engaging grooves or memorable songs. The overly slick production doesn't help matters, either. Combined, the meandering playing and the polished production makes one of the least funky records the ever released.
