ASTRAL FIRE - Defy the Lights EP Review


ASTRAL FIRE - Defy the Lights EP

Independent


Italy has one of my favorite metal scenes. If I have to make a catalogue of my favorite bands from over there it will be a long list. It is also very encouraging to see that it still produces good heavy and power metal releases (not that the other metal genres there lack of quality). ASTRAL FIRE are a new power metal band from Italy who introduce themselves to the metal audience with this EP which includes 5 tracks.

Στην καρδιά της θάλασσας


Στην καρδιά της θάλασσας

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ένα από τα αγαπημένα μου κλασσικά εικονογραφημένα ήταν η ιστορία του Μόμπι Ντικ. της λευκής φάλαινας και του αποφασιστικού στα όρια εμμονής καπετάνιου Άχαμπ. Η ιστορία με είχε τόσο πολύ εντυπωσιάσει που στην Ε΄τάξη του Δημοτικού έγραψα και σχετική έκθεση με αποτέλεσμα να εισπράξω το πολύ καλή αλλά βλέπεις πολύ τηλεόραση... Βλέπετε η δασκάλα είχε μπερδέψει το Μόμπι Ντικ με την ταινία Όρκα η φάλαινα δολοφόνος. Μόλις λοιπόν έπεσε το μάτι μου στο συγκεκριμένο βιβλίο που στις πρώτες σειρές στο οπισθόφυλλο του έγραφε η αληθινή ιστορία που ενέπνευσε το Μόμπι Ντικ, αμέσως το αγόρασα (το βρήκα μάλιστα και σε πολύ καλή τιμή).

There are countries like Canada that when you start thinking about its metal scene you realize it has one of the strongest in the world and that has offered us through the years some really great bands which have released some classic metal albums. CATEGORY VI are hailing from Canada and their debut album under the title “Fireborn”, which was released in 2013 as an independent work, caught the attention of Killer Metal Records and decided to offer them a deal for their sophomore album which I will present to you here.
