Sunburst – Manifesto

It’s hard to beat great vocals and stunningly dexterous guitar playing backed up by a solid rhythm section. There are no doubt reasons why they have only produced two albums in 14 years. I hope the next one will be released before too long. If it’s as good as “Manifesto,” it will be well worth waiting for.

Illumishade – Another Side of You

Illumishade’s “Another Side of You” is the ultimate hybrid of genres, sounds and emotions not just because of how many puzzle pieces it puts together, but because of how beautiful and coherent the final picture is.

Omnivide – A Tale of Fire

The mix of styles in the material on “A Tale of Fire” speaks volumes to me. Debut albums are always a great stepping stone for bands, and I hope this landmark moment will spur them on. I am sure they have plenty of ideas in their locker and I look forward to hearing more from them.

Shadowpath – The Aeon Discordance

For me, this is a band that stands out from the crowd and “The Aeon Discordance” gets better with each listen.

I hope this album will propel them to greater things and I look forward to hearing more from them.

Mystfall – Celestial Vision

Mystfall are another jewel in the crown for Scarlett Records and go on my ever-growing list of acts to watch out for. I hope this isn’t the last we hear from them.

Stormbound – December

At the end of the album, it feels like you ran a marathon, been transported through many places and even different eras, as if you were on a proper adventure, and you’re left with a beautiful sense of finality.

The Devils of Loudun – Escaping Eternity

It’s hard for me to pinpoint what exactly makes their music work so well and hook me almost instantly, but I would say there is no secret ingredient, rather a very meticulous and cleverly orchestrated balance between the various elements they have to offer.

Persona – Animal

It keeps the energy levels up almost all the way through, and flashes off fiery technicality in an elegant way that doesn’t distract from the energy and feel of the music.
