This makes everything on The Magical Mystery Machine (Chapter 1) one of the best albums of the year.

Anubis Gate – Covered in Colours

Covered in Colours by Anubis Gate is one of the best covers albums I’ve ever listened to. Each song is a piece of art made out of music that has influenced each of the musicians in the band, re-interpreted and even re-created entirely new with their own sound. After listening to this album, I can only hope for more perfection from this underrated danish band. 4.5★ / Van

Caligula’s Horse – Rise Radiant

“Rise Radiant” is definitely more than the obvious result of what the guys of Caligula’s Horse have been creating for the past decade. It is a conclusion and a marking point on their careers. With solid songwriting, super crystal clear sound production, it is poetically brilliant and combined with its powerfully crushing energy and moving melodies, delivers what surely is for me one of the best albums of the year! 5/5 ★
