VENUS 5 Venus 5
Developed by Frontiers with the aim of creating a credible metal version of pop projects, this international quintet of female vocal talents combined with the musicians involved has resulted in a stunning debut album. A truly team effort by producer Aldo Lonobile, a crack team of writers, musicians and co-producers, and, of course, the singers, has resulted in a record that offers a feast of musical treats and is not just about its obvious visual appeal. Recommended for fans of recent output by Within Temptation and Amaranthe, but with even more addictive and catchy melodies, it is a totally successful blend.

SEVENTH WONDER The Testament
This sixth studio album is the follow-up to 2018’s ‘Tiara’, which at that time was the first new music from the Swedish prog metal masters in eight years. While the wait has been shorter this time around, the quintet have certainly not skimped on their ability to craft yet another stunning record showcasing their intricate songwriting and instrumental skills. It is a high watermark in their revered discography.

BLOODY HEELS Rotten Romance
This third album by the Latvian hard rockers is the follow-up to 2020’s well received ‘Ignite The Sky’. Where that record mixed classic ’80s hard rock with metal, elements of prog rock, goth metal and modern rock have been introduced, with spectacular results. Vocalist Vicky White’s whisky-soaked voice is in fine form, while the performances of guitarist Harry Rivers, bassist Gunn Everett and drummer Gus Hawk are equally impressive. Intense, driving musical passages combine with atmospheric and dark breakdowns to give ‘Rotten Romance’ a seamless variety.

CHAOS MAGIC Emerge
Fronted by the mesmerizing Chilean vocalist Caterina Nix, ‘Emerge’ is the third stunning album of symphonic yet modern metal by her group and sees her maintain her collaboration with compatriot Nasson, who has already earned acclaim as a musician, singer and producer in his own right. Their ever maturing musical chemistry has resulted in an album filled with outstanding anthems bolstered by stunning vocal performances. Elina Siirala (Leaves’ Eyes) and Mistheria contribute additional vocals and piano to ‘Garden Of Winter’, while digital formats include a version of ‘Hearts Gone Dark’ featuring vocalist Jake E. (Cyhra, ex-Amaranthe).
