It's October right now and I feel like I have to add something new to my website. After Headache quit in July 2005, I had no tools anymore to review the new releases in the NWOBHM and US Metal scene and all the other important music styles, that really matter to me. And this happened at a time, where almost no other magazine is still willing to spend some words to these 'forgotten' styles of music and only follow the new trends and hypes Well, to hell with them and may they burn at the stake. On these pages there is and there always will be space for this type of music. That's why I decided to start to review new releases on my own website. Not only to keep you informed about any of these new releases, but also because I can't stop writing about my favorite music. Don't start searching for reviews about HYPOCRISY, SLIPKNOT or MESHUGGAH or whatever they are called, because you won't find it here. This is the home of all the bands from the eighties and some new real metal talents, like IGNITOR, SCARLET ANGEL and TWILIGHT ODYSSEY. These bands will carry the torch that was given to them by ANGELWITCH, JUDAS PRIEST and IRON MAIDEN. From now on, I will regularly review CDs here, that are essential to every die-hard metalhead or old school hard rock fan.
Oh, and by the way: if you want to have an honest review about your CD on this page, just send your promo kit to: Toine van Poorten, Sperwerlaan 121, 4143 AR Leerdam, The Netherlands.
I would like to start off with a review I wanted to do for Headache, right before the print magazine called it quits . Hypes may come and go, but my passion for good old heavy metal will never die!!
