A few words about the passing of Ronnie James Dio....

Today May 16th,2010.....Metal lost an Icon...Legend....Incredible Voice...And true original Ronnie James Dio...

For me personally...Dio was and will always be one of my favorite singers of all time...
It all started in 1976 with Rainbows 2nd album 'Rainbow Rising'....Then on to 'Long Live Rock&Roll' in 1978...Me cranking it all on a eight track stereo(God damn I'M old! )I'm sure most of you youngsters have never even heard of 8 track before....It was before cassettes...Anyways..It was 1980 when Dio made his best,When he joined Black Sabbath and put out the legendary 'Heaven & Hell' album. Now this album means alot to me then and still is in heavy rotation today.
I was on the way to see Sabbath in 1981 for the Heaven & Hell tour but spent the night in jail instead(But that's a whole other story)All the way to see Heaven & Hell the band reenact that album some 27 years later.

Lets not forget his solo stuff..Which was very cool also...'Holy Diver' was on my radio last night as I was enjoying a bonfire at the beach....'Last In Line' was another of his great recordings.....In the end Ronnie James Dio's music and voice will live on forever and I'm sure he will be fronting whatever great band he appears in..In the afterlife...With Horns raised !.....And shouting: "Look Out"

R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio (born Ronald James Padavona); July 10, 1942 – May 16, 2010

5. Return to Heaven
6. Everlasting Hate
7. Justify Your Existence

9. No Prayer for the Damned
10. Relentless
11. Silent Prayer 
12. Treachery
13. 1st of September
14. Alko Man Decends

Origin - Sweden
Style - Death/Thrash Metal

" The story of Chronic Decay starts in (Eskilstuna) Sweden in 1987....Originally formed as Hellfire in 1985 Who released a demo called 'Death Revenge' in 86...Later morphed int Chronic Decay and released a Ep in 1990 'Ecstacy In Pain' (Classic stuff) and a legendary split with Exanthema in 1993(also Awesome).....Chronic Decay also appeared on the infamous CBR compilation “Projections of a Stained Mind” (1990) with the track “1st Of September”, and in the “Grindcore” compilation CD (Nuclear Blast, 1993) with two tracks : “Taste For Blood” and “Arbeit Macht Frei” "

" The reason I bring up all the background is to let you see when and where these guys were around and at what time.....Fast forward to 2010 and here we have a Unreleased full-length recorded in 1994 at studio Underground....Brought back from the dead by Me Saco Un Ojo Records...A great new label out of the U.K. "

" I will start by saying....This isn't like the majority of Death Metal that was coming out of Sweden at the time...This is much more Thrashier Punk infested Death Metal played at top speed. The riffing comes exploding out right away and you notice the Hardcore pissed off vocals over the up-tempo tracks...Now there are some cool time changes..But are usually only temporary before taking off again. Sometimes the songs feel like they are careening out of control only to be reigned back in just in the nick of time. 'Hate Mask' sounds like it could be off of 'Beneath The Remains' from Sepultura and 'Murder By Degree' has a great Slayerish breakdown around the 1:36 mark that sounds classic "

" This is a piece of history that has been luckily uncovered !...And even if some of the track's sound samey and end abruptly..This still is a worthy pick up and a Fine album "

Fan's of Sepultura(Old),Pestilence(Malificarus era),Swedish Death Metal with punkish overtones.....Please get to the site and buy this !

Ok...Now its time for these guys to get out a full length...There's enough new and strong labels out there who would get to this....

Swallowed - S.T. Ep (2010)

1. Unsavorably
2. Black Phlegm
3. The Dying Misted In The Bloodstream

Origin - Finland
Style - Death Metal

" Holy Doom !.......This is without a doubt.....The slowest....Doom drenched...First Black Sabbath sounding tracks I have heard in a long time. Finland's Swallowed had already put out a couple of demo's in the last couple years....But this 7" takes their sound to a new level ! "

" When playing Crushing Doomy Death Metal....One must take into consideration the sound...And the two earlier demo's left a little to be desired. But on this little ditty..We get a much improved production..Albeit still gloomy atmosphere,Crushing wall of guitars,Barely audible Vocal's. But it works !....In a very Autopsy kinda way "

" 13 minutes of Deathly/Doom Metal with some cool time changes and buildups.....All blessed by the Finnish way of doing it ! "

Go to Emptiness Productions and Buy This !

Devastating !...........Must Buy !
Check it...       Uh..huh.....

" With all the Old....New Death Metal acts putting out material in the world today....They mostly pay homage to the Swedish Greats....And there is certainly nothing wrong with that...Enter youngsters Disfigured Dead ! "

" Autopsy !.......Death !.......That's what this reeks of !.....Organically produced....Real drums....Vocals from the grave. This is something that gets my attention. With all the Swedish Love out there..It is nice to hear a young band doing it the way their forefathers did !.....Grinding,Thrashy,Not perfect Death Metal...Nasty,Ugly...That's what I'm talkin about "

" This is not a perfect record....As there seldom is....But Disfigured Dead has touched on something that is rare in today's scene....Visions of Death contains an old school vibe that is dirty, somewhat messy at times and flat out abusive....But goddamn entertaining and shows a bright future ahead "
