OUT 2017 (Sept 22nd)
LABEL DISSONANCE PRODUCTIONS/BACK ON BLACK RECORDS
OUR RATING 83/100
As in eighties, DISSONANCE PRODUCTIONS, recently published a compilation in order to present several bands of the label belonging at UK NWOTHM'scene.
We starts from AMULET, from LONDON, with their catchy tunes midway between high voltage HARD ROCK and NWOBHM, ready for a new full-lenght in 2018.
AGGRESSIVE PERFECTOR are more aggressive, dirty and more speedy with their mid-spaced metal with kicks and stunning riffs.
ELIMINATOR is a well-known name in NWOTHM scene, with their classic HM, ready for the long-awaited first full-lenght with the new singer DANNY FOSTER.
DUNGEON are a four-piece combo from London, followers of speed metal with "thrashy" mood, in the way of band as VULTURE or ARMORY, but not yet at their level.
DARK FOREST are operating since 2002; an high class band right focused on unbelievable tunes, in waitin' for the new album.
The side b starts from a new song of TOLEDO STEEL; after two amazing EP are ready for the first full-lenght; honestly, even though changes in line-up, they are already TOP PLAYERS, with their catchy songs without being clearly commercial.
VUIL are more TANK'S oriented while SEVEN SISTERS (interview by Hardrockheavymetal in next months) is another TOP NAME, after the great debut full-length on HIGH ROLLER RECORDS.
After INSURGENCY and their "War Music", maybe not yet right focused, this compilation ends with two gems from NEURONSPOILER (interviewed by Hardrockheavymetal on September 19th), and WYTCH HAZEL.
The first are ready for the new album SECOND SIGHT, while second represents a beautiful trip in best seventies Hard Rock, with their fantastic and tasteful playing.
