Dragonland - Starfall (Sweden 2004)
Gods of Eden - From The End Of Heaven (Australia 2015)
The Ancients had some bloody weird ways of passing the time.
We know from wallpaintings that this gamne involved a giant walnut Whip and being naked
except for a metal hat but sadly, the exact rules have yet to be discovered.
Gods Of Eden are apparently the missing link between Progressive Metal and Metalcore.
The end result is intriguing
Eden's Curse - Live with the Curse (Multinational 2015)
It's good to be the
Queen... Pharoah.. Pharoahess.. .oh sod it...Big Boss Woman.
If you look carefully at the pillars in the background you'll see the bands' earlier album covers.
Which is a nice touch.
Eden's Curse fit into the gap between Melodic Rock and Heavy Metal.
This is a live album; hence the punny title.
Any chance you guys can play Pompey at some point?
Sphinx - Renacer (Spain 2008)
Begins humming that bit from The Lion King....
Sphinx are one of many Spanish bands that I stumbled across while researching The Metal Project.
This lot are very, very catchy and I am impressed.
I was hoping to sneak this last one in as "Egyptian" but the cover gives the game away.
What the hell. Close enough.
Lord Tracy - Deaf Gods of Babylon (USA 1989)
That hat is definitely Egyptian and I reckon the wings are too.
The nudity is universal.
It is entirely possible the artist didn't know what "Babylonian" looked like so just did something ancient and Middle-Eastern.
Lord Tracy are good-time Hard Rock with a sense of humour.
The guys are still going and almost certainly an entertaining night out.
That's it for this series, at least until next month.
If you ahve anything you'd like to see that doesn't involve chainsaws, zombies or man-butt then please let me know.
That's all folks.
