Marc Vanderberg - "The Four Elements" EP Review/Feature







Marc Vanderberg is a talented guitarist and songwriter from Germany, who is influenced by well known guitarists, Kee Marcello, John Norum and Yngwie Malmsteen. His influences certainly shine through in his new collection of songs in EP, "The Four Elements", especially with some impressive surprise guest vocalists!!..

Opening song, "Storm, Thunder and Lightning" is a slow power metal ballad, with soft vocals, from Paulo Cuevas, that still hit hard, as we see brilliant vocal abilities and range from him, which is mighty and impressive! That along with superb harmonies and melodies, makes this a dangerously beautiful concoction, like that of a 'storm'!


"Devil May Care" sees a change in pace, and gets things off to a soaring start, with dark old school vocals from the mighty Swedish vocalist, Goran Edman (Ex Malmsteen/Norum), and Marc showing off his killer guitar work, in this all out heavy metal anthem!


"Corrosion Of Society" is fast paced, with brilliant sinister rhythms and riffs, layered with demanding vicious vocals, from Paulo Cuevas yet again, and we are treated to some slick shredding! 

So we reach the end with, the debut single, "Key To Your Heart" which immediately embraces 80s metal in big style, with Paulo showcasing more massive piercing vocal harmonies, and of course bad-ass riffs, what more could you want?! This is a huge memorable stadium sounding anthem!

This is a robust collection of songs, with Marc's impressive song-writing and guitar-work, along with his brilliant guests, anyone can appreciate the talent featured throughout! He certainly has all the 'elements' working in his favour, and the end result is a well crafted musical masterpiece, which is a must hear EP!

If you want to hear more of Marc's wonderful song writing, then be sure to look out for his new song,"Smoking Kills - But Only Love Can Break Your Heart", which is sung by Chris Divine (Luna Rise) & Tave Wanning (Adrenaline Rush) which is released November 1st 2015 and is a mix between 'Sisters Of Mercy' & Finnish Rock band, HIM!

REVIEW: Bobaflex - Eloquent Demons

Hard Rockers Bobaflex from West Virginian are back to wreak havoc with their eighth album ‘Eloquent Demons’ which is the follow to 2015’s ‘Anything That Moves’, this sees not only their first release through Thermal Entertainment but their first actual label release in a while after the band decided to go independent. They are a very hardworking and tireless band, having extensively toured, and even setting records for this, they certainly don’t do anything by half measures.
The opening intro and title track sounds very appropriately evil, with a creepy intro speech to set the scene whilst we wait for the demons to be fully unleashed…
First proper track ‘I Am Nightmare’ immediately sees heavy dark guitars and melodic group singing, which give it a classic feel with a gritty edge and is possesses a hell of a powerful chorus, not to mention a killer solo – this will be hard to forget.
Keeping the momentum going is ‘Long Time Coming’ which is equally as hard-hitting, with groove ridden and…

REVIEW: Vrona - Impermanence (Prog Metal)

Prog metallers, Vrona released their debut EP 'A Lapse In Time' last year which received positive press and even led to them being compared to the likes of heavyweights Karnivool, TesseracT and Tool, minus the vocals, as in 2016 they were an instrumental act. Now in 2017, they are back, not only with a new two-track release titled 'Impermanence' but they have also unveiled and added an extra dimension to their already massive sound with the introduction of a vocalist Jamie Ball.

The main title track 'Impermanence' is ambient and textured. The vocals are pleasant, captivating and varied which immediately gives them a different feel and layer, proving that adding vocalist Jamie was a wise move. It features soaring and powerful moments throughout. The fact that they now have vocals doesn't overpower the well crafted and intelligible instruments either but only acts as the perfect unison, with both complimenting each other wonderfully. They are all impressive mu…
