Burning Witches: Dance with The Devil (2020) – By Baron Craze

The band formed in 2016 and clearly raising hell with a solid fanbase, hailing from Switzerland, returned with a new lead singer as Seraina Telli left in 2019, and as many know they released an EP entitled ‘Acoustic Sessions’ (2020) and then a full length album called ‘The Witch of the North’ (2021). This album is…


Morbid Angel: Covenant (1993) – By Baron Craze

Morbid Angel was such a great band, their first three albums captured some of the finest and thoroughly viciousness terms of playing style and vocals in regard to death metal subgenre with a firm nod to satanic image, which later transfers more to another death metal band Deicide. In fact, in the late 80s and…


Rush: Moving Pictures (1981) Music Review – By Vincent Mento

While I was born in the very early 70s my musical tastes were not affirmed until the 80s learning that not one single decade hones my ear for input, rather what the musicians create that captured my attention. There’s obviously The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Alice Cooper, Blue Oyster Cult, and plenty…


Mystic Prophecy: Metal Division (2020) Music Review – By Baron Craze

A cool feature of running a metal radio show such as Shredding Metal Beasts for the past 6-years (7 in August) is I get the opportunity to listen to a lot of bands, promoting so many of them, exploring tons of subgenres and crossovers it’s incredible, and while I’ve heard a track or two from…


Great White: Hooked (1991) Music Review – By Vincent Mento

I know that a lot of the music I like is probably not the taste of The Horror Times, however I continue to thank Baron for the permission to develop my own style, exploring the music fully. I’ll leave all that pure metal to his judgement, the reviews of Rock/Hard Rock I do is similar…


Shining: IX – Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends (2015) – By Baron Craze

Quite honestly, I never had the pleasure of actually listening to Shining’s albums, I always sought to listen to the actual CD and rarity of a vinyl release, but decided to change that to embracing the MP3s this time found on Season of Mist’s Bandcamp page. While not asked by anyone to review this album…


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…
