Slander's excellent "Resolution Defiance" is the final piece of Stormspell's late 2017 release slate. Fans of the NWOBHM and/or traditional '80s metal in general need to hear this one!

New entry:
I dusted off W.A.S.P.'s Helldorado this past week for the first time in a good long while, and I said to myself "Self, this album would be a damn good candidate for a new blog," so it was done.

New entry!
I don't collect vinyl but every time I'm in my local Goodwill scrounging for CDs I always flip through the moldy old LPs just to see what kind of weird sh** will turn up. Here are a half dozen album covers that made me go WTF?

    • I'll give you one example. Tax cuts. Everyone loves tax cuts right?? and according to Trump every American got a tax cut in 2017.....but here are the facts - According to estimates from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, while most Americans will benefit at least somewhat, the top fifth of earners get 70 percent of the bill’s benefits, and the top 1 percent get 34 percent. The new tax treatment for “pass-through” entities — companies organized as sole proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs, or S corporations — will mean an estimated $17 billion in tax savings for millionaires in 2018   Sorry that's just wrong. And this will add over $1 trillion to national debt. Tax cuts for people expire in 2025/6 while corporation is permanent. Hello austerity measures. Trust me that ain't fun as the UK has found out for the last few years after Labour almost bankrupted our country. 
    • by intelligent he means looking into things beyond the basic stats and lies which are generally used to gloss / cover up what resides beneath And yes Nordic Union will receive no more spins from me. Besides being one paced and generally dull the songs aren't helped by Atkins straining throughout. 
    • I like the song, country vibe or whatever it is. Agree with comments that it wasn't what I expected when I saw the pic. It kinda looks like 3 band members, and they didn't like the look of the 3 of them together, so they asked a sound mixer to stand in the background lol
    • And by intelligent I'm assuming you mean people that follow what's trending in hip circles without looking into things for themselves?  I'm Australian and give very, very little shit about US politics. But I still listen to things and I don't think Russ is alone in his opinion that Obama was a very poor president and that, whether you agree with his politics or not, Trump actioned more stuff in one month than Obama did in years?  Nordic Union album still sucks balls. 
    • Very different to what their image suggests. Lose the country vibe and they're onto something. Not bad at all. 
    • Acoustic rocker( I wouldn't say "Country"). I like it  
    • On first listen through, this album is "meh".  Lots of songs that sound very similar and nothing that sounds particularly inspired.  
    • just heard another snippet and it sounds identical again. I'll give this a go for sure but this dudes songs all sound the same. it's a bit weird
