Brainscab Review=Herod: The Curse Of The King

Dark Harvest Records
Like a ghost riding the flames of redemption Herod steals the soul of those who will listen and shatter those who will not. “The Curse Of The King” is an instrumented master of pure angst driven piece that belongs mounted above your hearth on a long and cold lonely night. Jesse Benkers vocals does not play by any metal rules throughout this production capturing all that are in range of his throat talents. Greg DiPasquale’s lead guitars matches the creative out-put of the vocals bringing a quality of rhythm and strength that, even though unique, blends together naturally. Mike Union on drums and Matt Baclas on bass supports and expands the overall intensity of “Sexuality”, “The Dark Deceiver”, “Genocide Solution”, “The Curse Of The King”, ‘Jagged Visions”, welcomes you to experience this very unique and powerful Quartet of players and their interpretation of metal.

Brainscab Review=Skull Fist: Heavier Than Metal

Oh to be back in the True Metal years!!! Skull Fist would rule the what was!!! But, WAIT!!! They rule now with the release hailed as “Heavier Than Metal”. Blasting out tunes like “Sign of the Warrior”, “Heavier Than Metal”, “Ride the Beast”, “Blackout” and “No False Metal”, these warriors of Heavy Metal can hang with the best of that era like Dokkon and Great White. Bringing it all around in the 21st Century and proving that tight leather high pitched screaming vocals, destroyer guitars and slamming bass and drums will never go out of style. Skull Fist is here and taking the metal world back to where it belongs on a stage in a musky smoke filled bar with short leather skirts and beers all around. With names like Jackie Slaughter, Sir Shred, Alison Thunderhead (hot babe keeping beets) and Johnny Exciter these players can give KISS a run for their money.
