Album Length: 41:08


Capturing the classic Thrash sound of the Big Four in their prime; early Metallica, Testament, Slayer, and Megadeth as well as lesser known cult heroes Exodus, Annihilator, Forbidden and Havok. FALLEN ANGELS is influenced by a wide range of 80’s thrash as well as classic metal from the 70’s and 80’s. The band combines these elements in a fresh, modern sounding album with the explosive riffs and solos that one might have expected to hear on the radio around 1989. FALLEN ANGELS is a band that Thrash fans and more classic Metal oriented fans can agree on because the music is catchy but also very aggressive.

Chastain - promo band pic - 2015 - #MO33ILMF99ILMD9339

CHASTAIN – The legendary guitarist David T. Chastain returned in 2015, once again, with his eminent band CHASTAIN; delivering a new studio album of splendid Heavy Metal: We Bleed Metal. This album should be a training manual for those up and coming Heavy Metal bands that want to make their mark upon us veterans of real Heavy Metal. I am not freaking kidding.

David T. Chastain is (of course) astounding on We Bleed Metal, with vocalist Leather Leone delivering one of her most memorable of performances amongst her exalted Metal career. Drummer Stian Kristoffersen and bassist Mike Skimmerhorn are the super rhythm section, once again for CHASTAIN.

“All Hail The King” is one track from We Bleed Metal that I am proud to feature as Metal Odyssey’s METAL Pick Of The Day! Crank ‘er up all you Metal mutha’s and be grateful CHASTAIN exists. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

Metal Odyssey’s Top 10 Hard Rock And Metal Albums Of 2015!

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music with tags , , , , on December 31, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Stone - Scott Coverdale - Top 10 Albums Of 2015 - promo banner - 2015 - #MO33MDILFNSMSTO

Stone Says:

2015 was a very enjoyable year for me, when it came to Metal and Hard Rock releases. On a personal note, 2015 was one of my saddest years, due to the passing of my Father this December and then Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead left us. May they both rest in peace. Once again, I’ve told myself to cherish life and the music that brings us together. I hope you all will share my sentiment.

On an upbeat note, I did compile my list of Top 10 Hard Rock And Metal Albums Of 2015. My Metal Brother and Metal Odyssey’s staff researcher Scott Coverdale also has compiled his Top 10 Of 2015 as well, on this same post! Whoa! My love for Classic Rock is shown on my Top 10 list with Europe and FM; both bands released what probably are their finest albums ever, in my opinion. My #1 is Enforcer From Beyond, a Metal album I consider to be beyond incredible!

My Top 10 list would never be complete without the entries of Venom and Motörhead; both bands released freaking killer albums this past year and I’ll forever recommend them both! Please check out Iron Kingdom and Fallen Angels when you can, both of these underground Metal bands deserve ALL the praise I can possibly give them and they are in my Top 10! Thank you for visiting Metal Odyssey, Happy Metal New Year and Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

Scott Coverdale Says:

This past year happened to be one of the best years in music for me in decades. Many of my favorite bands that were cranked-up on my car stereo back in 1986 were once again being cranked-up in 2015. With the likes of Whitesnake, Def Leppard, and Iron Maiden releasing great studio albums this year, it was really difficult coming up with my Top 10 for this year. Before I list my Top 2015 Albums Of The Year, I would like to shout out a huge THANK YOU to one of the Greatest Bands of all time… MÖTLEY CRÜE.

I was lucky enough to see THE CRÜE this past summer for the last time, on their Farewell Tour. It was kind of a bitter-sweet night for me, at this concert. On the one hand I was having a great time taking in the show with my high school buddies, just like we did at the “Theatre Of Pain” concert back in the day, while at the same time saying Good bye to one of my all-time favorite bands wasn’t easy. Thank You!!! – Scott Coverdale

Ravens Creed - Ravens Krieg - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #MO33499MDF

RAVENS CREED (UK) – ‘Ravens Krieg’

Genre – Crusty Death Metal

Release Date – October 1st, 2015

Record Label – Xtreem Music

Shit, this is good. Xtreem Music is at it again. Crusty Death Metal the way you like it. Formed originally by members of Cerebral Fix, Sabbat, Orange Goblin among others, Ravens Creed from the UK are whipping up a concoction of crusty Death Metal that’s hard to come by these days.

There’s the classic vibe channelled through the glass shards-encrusted and Thrash Metal-spiked Death Metal music that’s just extremely virulent and nasty in its final output. This here is an abrasive mass of Crust/Death/Thrash music that destroys any structure standing. The heaviness is palpable while the unique tone will make your skin peel backwards. This is the second and most potent full length of the band yet and it will rip your face right off and scrub what’s left with acid.


Album Line-Up:

Rod Boston – Bass

Jay Graham – Drums

Steve Watson – Guitars

Al Osta – Vocals

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, news, rock music with tags , , , , on December 21, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Khazaddum - promo band pic - #MO3309933 - 2015

J.R. Tolkien-based Death Metallers KHAZADDUM have released the In Dwarven Halls EP.  Stream the EP in its entirety at:

Check out the official video for EP cut “Thorin Oakenshield” at this location or below:

Established in Milwaukee, WI in 2014, the band’s goal was to create music that captured the epic feel and scope of storytelling comprising the immense Tolkien mythology. Drawing influences from Death Metal greats such as NILE, MORBID ANGEL, and BEHEMOTH,  KHAZADDUM carries on the tradition of both a technical and melodic approach in their music.

Featuring guitarist Alex Rausa (ex-Devolving Messiah), drummer Pete Kissane (Burial Ritual), vocalist Luka Djordjevic (ex- Promethean Parallax /ex- Carnal Befoulment) , and bassist Tony Cannizzaro (ex- Splattered Cadavre/ ex- Demented Tourment), KHAZADDUM absolutely shine on the EP’s three stellar tracks.

Track Listing:

  1. The Grey Thus Commands
  2. Durin’s Bane
  3. Thorin Oakenshield

The In Dwarven Halls EP was recorded at Bell City Sound by Chris Wisco (ex- Jungle Rot) in late 2014. Originally started as a recording project, KHAZADDUM finally decided to become a full-time live band in 2015 and released this beast of an EP.

NWOBHM Trail Blazers SAVAGE Release Double Studio/Live Album ‘7’

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music with tags , , , , on December 10, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Savage - promo band pic - 2015 - #MO33S33

NWOBHM trailblazers SAVAGE have released a new studio album 7 on Minus 2 Zebra. Included with the double-album is a live performance disc titled Live N Lethal. 7 features 12 blistering new tracks, which mix old with new. Many of the tracks are fast paced and hark back to the early days whilst tracks such as “Superspy’ and Empire Of Hate’ sound akin to something off a modern OZZY album or even METALLICA at their best!

Savage - 7 - promo cover pic - 2015 - #MO333033963

Live N Lethal features 13 live tracks. Included is the entirety of classic 1983 debut album Loose N Lethal, which is given a fresh treatment in the form of a recently recorded gig in the band’s hometown of Mansfield (UK). The Loose n Lethal album is delivered at a furious pace, along with a few choice tracks from the band’s back catalogue.

SAVAGE, once credited for influencing METALLICA to play fast, the band has a strong history starting out in the 80s. Even though the band has often been linked to the NWOBHM movement, their roots are more in the vintage Classic Rock with a modern feel. Influences such as THIN LIZZY and DEEP PURPLE abound and yet with new material they sound incredibly contemporary and fresh. Their debut album, Loose n Lethal became a classic and was the biggest selling independent import in to USA in its day. The band have had a stop-start career but came back with a vengeance in 2012 with the epic Sons Of Malice. The band has been busy ever since on the live scene in the UK and Europe and most recently an Italian tour earlier this summer.
