A New World

An Album By


Review by

Tommy ReinXeed calls his music “adventurous power metal,” but whatever you want to call it, we call it great stuff for fans of bands like Helloween, Hammerfall, Rhapsody of Fire, etc. Tommy has also recorded a few releases with Golden Resurrection, but since his being discovered in 2007 by Christian Liljegren (Narnia, Golden Resurrection), he has put together six amazing albums of his own (seven if you count his Swedish Hits Goes Metal project release). This album has a bit more metal edge to it, though. You can check out the music video for “Guitar Hero” now, until the album is released in September. As always, production is top-notch, as is the musicianship. Fans of this genre of metal should be pleased with another stellar release.


Pantokrator 2021

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.

Brian "Head" Welch

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.
