Life’s been a bit rubbish recently but fortunately I have had some music available to help with the situation. Below is a selection.

  • Bloodbound: Book of the Dead. Arguably their best album â€" Michael Boorman on vocals.

  • Axxis: Doom of Destiny. My favourite album form these veterans.

    I have developed a real interest in Japanese female-fronted metal and thoroughly recommend Band-Maid’s Just Bring It, I am also a fan of Fate by Mary’s Blood, love as well as We Are by Alldious.

    Lovebites’ add power metal into the mix on their excellent Awakening From Abyss.

    I have given Delain’s We Are the Others the once over. The title song is tremendous and the rest isn’t bad.

    I have played Arrival by Journey a couple of times recently. It’s overlong but there are some cracking tunes in there.

    I’m firmly in the positive camp for Dimmu Borgir’s Eonian.

    I listened to Shep Gordon’s They Call Me Supermench book on Audible (way too much about chefs) which made me dig out The Definitive Alice Cooper. I’m not a massive fan of compilation albums but I also listened to Toto’s Past to Present 1977 â€" 1990 recently as well â€" so many great tunes.

    Departure’s Corporate Wheel had a spin for the first time in a while as did Turisas’ Battle Metal and Luca Turilli’s splendidly OTT Prophet of the Last Eclipse.

    I have been on a bit of Styx kick as well so I have re-evaluated Brave New World and find that despite all its obvious faults I still like it, but not as much as Cyclorama which contains the epic These Are the Times. I have also dug out DDY’s orchestral CD as well.

    Finally, Pagan’s Mind have been too quiet for too long so God’s Equation has been on rotation and life feels better because of that fact.
