2004. Wintersun

 is the debut album by metal artist Jari Mäenpää of Wintersun. The style presented is somewhat of a departure from the more folk-oriented sounds heard on Ensiferum, the band in which Mäenpää was previously a member, though traces still remain. Instead, Wintersun’s approach is more rooted in melodic death metal, mostly through the genre’s inherent harmonies, mixed with the blast-beating speed and atmosphere of black metal and the riffing approach of power metal.

Wintersun was a project eight years in the making. Jari Mäenpää began writing the music for Wintersun in 1995, before joining folk metal band Ensiferum in 1996 as lead singer and guitarist. In 1997, Mäenpää served in the Finnish military as part of his national defense duty, during which he contracted tuberculosis. The diagnosis was late, and Mäenpää required surgery to remove part of his lung, hospitalizing him for months. The song “Beautiful Death” would later be inspired by this event.

This is one of the best melodic death metal album, and this band is synonym for melodic death metal. So much talent and creative work here. buy this album , and help Järi make more perfect songs faster.

The production is great on this album. Very clear,  and the guitar solos sound great. The drumming is just as fantastic, Mixing is also great, there are many less important melodies and lines that can be heard in the background that are not very apparent at first, but after several listens are a nice enhancement and definitely help the replay value.

2011. Head Of The Pack

is the debut album by band Skull Fist. The album received great reviews around the globe  which led the band to be named best upcoming band in Terrorizer in early 2012. After leaving the band, Alison Thunderland recorded the drums for the album.

This is just packed with killer riffs and solos, the band gives an amazing performance. Everybody in the band is obviously very, very great at playing their instruments. The production is also killer. 

Great Album!!!

2006. Chemical Assault

is the debut album by band Violator.

Chemical Assault’s production is old-school: it’s rough and raw and that’s how it should be.

Violator supplies your headbanging banghead with true thrash fuel that is extremely old school styled much in the vein of Slayer, Nuclear Assault and Exodus. They are obviously not ashamed of showing strong influences in their music. 

instead simply tempting the listener to break out a record from 1986 and remember how thrash is really done.
