CD Review: Forever Storm “Soul Revolution”

Serbian heavy metal band Forever Storm is recording their latest album.  The working title, Tragedy, is set for release at the end of the year.  With the newest single, “Paradox,” another larger than life song has graced Forever Storm’s repertoire.  “Paradox” is technically driven with faster guitars and pulsing rhythms.  The sound reflects the band’s inspiration – classic heavy metal resounds.  Forever Storm will not disappoint.

Like the last album, epic themes reside.  The world is destroying itself with pollution and corruption.  Paradox is the life we breathe that is killing itself.

Soul Revolution is Forever Storm’s first album release.  Themes rally against oppression and alienation on national and personal levels.  Forever Storm will astound with more releases, studio time and live shows.

Heavy MTL: Back and louder than ever

After disappointing Quebec metal fans last year, Heavy MTL returned to Parc Jean-Drapeau on July 24 and 25, much to the delight of the head-banging faithful. With thirty-four bands booked over two days, Saint Helen’s Island, located between Montreal and Longueil, was packed with long-haired, tattoo-covered, beer-drinking metalheads worshiping their rock Gods.

Saturday, July 24, sunny skies and a million degrees outside, yours truly took in the action. The day’s lineup sported some old heavyweights like Slayer, Megadeath, Rob Halford from Judas Priest, and the ageless Alice Cooper. Scanning the crowd, most of the attendees were clearly too young to have actually been alive when most of these bands were in their prime. But metal fans don’t care what your latest hit is, they just want a tonsil-bleeding good time. And that’s what they got.
