1. Evergrey – Hymns For The Broken

And down to number one! On the last day of the year, we make an end to this nonsense top 10 of 2014. With this amazing album.
Ever since I heard ‘The Inner Circle’ my soul was sold to this Swedish band, but with the latest releases, my heart has wept with sadness.
I truly believed that they couldn’t make good albums any longer.

First of all I hope you all had a very happy Christmas and enjoyed the warmth of family and friends in these cold winter days. I also have to apologize to you all for the lack of a Sabaton Saturday yesterday. With the aftermath of Christmas I entirely forgot to post a Sabaton analyses.

And therefore I will post a Sabaton Sunday this time, completely matching with the snow that is coming down here, in Holland, but also in a lot of other country’s. Today we look at one of the most amazingly accurate snipers ever to exist. Simo Häyhä a.k.a. ‘White Death’.

This is a very interesting entry, mostly because a lot of you will not know the band. Need is a Greek band that fell onto my doorstep last summer to be reviewed for the Lords Of Metal e-zine. After having released two pretty bad albums, they return with ‘Orvam (A Song For Home)’ and it is one big succes.

4. Machine Head – Bloodstone And Diamonds

For Machine Head front-man Robb Flynn a breakup is very, very bad news. Being together a long time, like Machine Head, it is terrible to lose a close friend and band mate. But if there is an argument, or things get out so terribly out of hand as it was with Machine Head, it’s inevitable.

And that’s exactly what happened, resulting into a breakup with bass player and co-founder Adam Duce. For the fans this is great news, because an angry Flynn writes the meanest songs.

5. Blues Pills- Blues Pills

It’s amazing how easy it sometimes seems to be. A woman decides to form a new band, with a bit of a hippy, retro sound. Then she recruits a couple of metal musicians that agree to give in to the sound, to make a lovely prog-rock album, with it’s roots deep into the psychedelic. And that’s exactly Blues Pills.

Sabaton Saturday: ‘Resist And Bite’

This weeks song comes from the latest Sabaton album ‘Heroes’. A lot of things have been said about this new album, some thought it was fantastic, others thought the Swedes could have done better. To leave it in the middle there are some good and some a bit worse. After last weeks Sabaton Saturday about General Rommel’s ‘Ghost Division’, we grab a story of a group of soldiers that opposed the invading Germans.

6. Amplifier – Mystoria


After the first three albums Amplifier wanted to record Mystoria, but they had a terrible lack of funds. Therefore they recorded their previous album, Echo Street, hoping that it would sell good and they would be able to record the original project.
