REVIEW : JOE MATERA / Louder Than Words (2015)

Joe Matera is an Australian artist that has already a respectful career over his shoulders. I have really enjoyed all of his solo works so far. In my humble opinion, Joe is an accomplished musician. He knows how to write a sweet and emotional melody but, also, knows how to 'put' a muscle in his music when it's necessary.

REVIEW : KISKE - SOMERVILLE / City of Heroes (2015)

The new chapter of the collaboration between vocalists Michael Kiske (ex-Helloween, Unisonic, Place Vendome) and Amanda Somerville (Trillium, Avantasia) is certainly one thing that every single fan of the melodic hard 'n' heavy scene was looking forward to. The debut album, back in 2010, gained some excellent feedback from the metal press and fans and the two artists are back again to present us the brand new "City Of Heroes".
