Here are some of this week’s new releases:
Crystal Eyes – Side By Side
This week’s edition of things from Sweden brings us Crystal Eyes! Take Maiden, Priest, Accept, Thin Lizzy and Helloween, stick them in a blender, and you get Crystal Eyes. Although people have come and gone from the band, lead singer and guitarist Mikael Dahl has been the only constant. This is their eighth release, the band did form in 1992, but their first album did not come out until 1999. Making this year the twentieth anniversary of their debut World Of Black And Silver. The new album features a re-recording of the song “Rage On The Sea” from the debut album.
Human Fortress – Reign Of Gold
The German band has been around since 1997 in one form or another. This is their sixth full length album, their first since 2016’s Thieves In The Night.
IzenGard – Angel Heart
Although the band formed back in 2014, this is their first release. The band isn’t a one trick pony as they definitely spread their wings, and touch upon many different forms of hard rock on their debut.
