AC/DC: Back In Black (1980) – By Vincent Mento

So, this is very cool, I’ve finally found a spot to write reviews, big thanks to Baron for encouraging me, not to give up, with that I have the fun opportunity of exploring countless hard rock bands and albums, among one of my favorites, AC/DC. There’s something about their music that hits just right, it’s…


Christian Shields: This Is Rock N Roll (2020) – By Vincent Mento

  First, this album contains the influence of hair metal of the 1980s, and while it’s not something often reviewed on The Horror Times, with Baron’s blessing, I thought I try something different; those film reviews were out of my depth, I enjoy rocking tunes. Look some metal is cool too, but I’m not a…


Alice Cooper: From the Inside (1978) Music Review – By Baron Craze

Alice Cooper’s health had hit an ultra-low point, his excessive drinking turned his blood almost to that of alcohol and that resulted in his shock value once on stage decline, hence lead to a series of albums which the music started frizzling out. He always had the booze to help him excel, but it became…


Iron Maiden: Iron Maiden (1980) – By Baron Craze

There’s not many metal fans who are unaware of the legendary history or status of Iron Maiden, but back 1979, they were merely a band striving for some footing in the music business and solid recognition; they didn’t have the mega albums or singles and definitely hadn’t thought about Flight 666. They were fortunate enough…


Deicide: Overtures of Blasphemy (2018) – By Baron Craze

Most of United States death metal fans thoroughly agree that Florida housed the rise of these bands, the iconic career of Death (from founding member Chuck Schuldiner, deceased in 2001) as well as Morbid Angel and Obituary, just to name few. However this isn’t an article about the genre of death metal, that’s for another…


Anvil: Legal at Last (2020) Music Review – By Baron Craze

Anvil has been together since 1981, basically 75% heavy metal and 25% speed metal that pattern has remained relatively unchanged for all that time, along the years their lyrics style never change, they still act, write, and play  appears as their still 21-year-olds, with some tongue in cheek songs that fit the AC/DC attitude. On…


King Diamond: Them (1988) Music Review – By Baron Craze

If one is unaware of King Diamond, he used to be a member of Mercyful Fate, but left over creative differences and unable to push the envelope in musical design and style, he ventured off on his own, with incredible success. First with  ‘Fatal Portrait’, before truly developing horror stories and creating musical stories of…


Drakkar: Cold Winters Night (2018) Music Review – By Baron Craze

The power metal band Drakkar from Milan returned with their seventh album entitled “Cold Winter’s Night”, an EP with four songs released on April 27th, 2018 from My Kingdom Music, contains three new studio songs and a live version of Invincible totaling a scant 18-miuntes in length. However one should note I reviewed this as a…


Motorhead: Bastards (1993) Music Review – By Baron Craze

There is likely not a metal fan who doesn’t know of the fame or the lasting music that Lemmy generated, in early 1975 he was fired from Hawkwind, and curious enough his last song he wrote for them was called ‘Motorhead’. However, before Motorhead became that, it was known as Bastards, as revenge on the…


Hellfire Deathcult: Black Death Terroristic Onslaught (2018) Music Review – By Baron Craze

Black and Death Metal fans know that there is a wide chasm of different veins within these subgenres of metal, namely black metal often dives deeper into one-word ideology ‘RAW’ the purest form. Hence that brings us to Hellfire Deathcult, complete with sheer unbridled lust for intense brutal metal for their followers, hellbent on creating…
