Irish Coffee - II (2004)

The year I turned 30 was the year when not even my own band but also my fave belgian hardrock outfit from the 70s, actually my fave organ driven hardrock band of all time, put out their second album after nearly 30 years of silence, following the death of their organist Pol Lambert in 1975. Well, here we go with a bunch of classic hardrock, bluesrock and pure rock tunes with wonderful memorable melodies, punching axework and excellent keyboards. Since most members were in their late 50s then, this is not nearly as wild as it would have been if they released it in 1972 as follow up to "Irish Coffee I" but the songs touch you deep inside and will not leave your head that quickly. So what? Get yourself this album and tell me if you like it...

Lucifer Was - In Anadi's bower

Some cool norwegian band that brings back the original 70s prog and hardrock during the 90s. Lucifer Was have actually been founded in the earliest 70s by then teenage Tore Engen and some friends and took 27 years to unleash their debut album "Underground and below" in 1997. In 1999 they returned with a vengeance and an equally original, moving and memorable second album, "In Anadi's bower". Forget about AOR, Grunge, Sleaze, Stoner and Alternashit, everything that made the 90s the most cruel time for music...this is the real deal, this is classic 70s stuff far away from every mainstreamish feel. This was their last overwhelming album unfortunately, the two later records are just good...which makes them still better than 95 % of the rock albums today. Here is the link, enjoy...

HI Freunde, ich habe ja zum 01.05.2007 meinen Job bei Hellion Records mehr oder minder an den Nagel gehängt und suche nun dringend nach einer neuen und diesmal auch korrekt bezahlten Festanstellung. Ich arbeite gerne 40, 45 Stunden die Woche, das macht mir nichts aus. Momentan steht mir das Wasser bis zum Halse, womit auch das Musizieren schwierig wird. Wer mir helfen kann
Ich bin gelernter Kaufmann im Einzelhandel, verstehe etwas von Kommissionierung, habe 2 Jahre als Büroassistent gearbeitet, beherrsche die englische Sprache fließend. Ich habe bei Hellion neben dem Verkauf auch die telefonische Versandannahme, Kundenbetreuung per Email, Wareneinkauf, Wareneingangskontrolle und Botenfahrten übernommen.
Ich hoffe, Ihr könnt mir irgendwie weiterhelfen.

Belgian mid 80s Heavy Metal, raw with a giant power, dragging melodies and typical lyrics. I wonder how many members of the band were wearing a moustache (not that there is anything wrong with it). The songwriting is great, you can definitely tell this band from all the hundreds of similar groups during those heydays of pure metal. Enjoy.

Cachura - Reggae am Elbestrand CD 1998

One garage / psychedelic / hardrock band I was in way back 10 years ago. The musical mix is crude, the playing is sloppy and the recording quality not worth mentioning but somehow there are a few cool tunes on it, so enjoy the good songs, delete the bad songs and have fun with this album.

Omega - 10.000 Lepes

Tenthousand steps to freedom...this is the debut album of the longest surviving eastern blog rock legend, OMEGA from Hungary. Released in 1969 "10.000 lepes" is a typical record for it's time, hitting the rock music scene somewhere between psychedelic, beat and heavyrock with a pop appeal. That means kick aerse songs with an anthemic approach. If you are into late 60s rock music, you will love this.

Forgotten North - Mörke Demo 1996

This is the oldest stuff I have from my band, a 60 minute demo album with about 16 Songs. We were still a bit sloppy and raw, still searching for the style but we had some cool versions of later songs on this tape already. Enjoy...

My first album with Ritual Steel from 2003, still loud, still least this record.

Deathrash Forum

If you look for great stuff from the whole heavy metal genre do not go any further...albums, old and new, demos, liverecordings, you will find everything here, posted by dedicated metalheads. All directions from the metal genre...enjoy

Ange - par les fils de mandarin

A beautiful classic from the french progressive rock scene of the 70s. I discovered this band quite late, not before summer of 2006, but since then their early stuff from 1972 to 1978 became my fave progressive rock ever.
It is heavy, dark, progressive, dreamy, other words: UNIQUE

Phoenix "Cei Ce Ne-Au Dat Nume" 1972, Heavy Prog, Romania

Some awesome music from Romania, kinda folky and epic heavy progressive rock with wicked fuzz guitar and furious organs. If you like bands like ANGE from France, check PHOENIX!

Henry Marten's Ghost

A friend of mine from Northern Ireland has just put up a great website with tons of information, not only about his band HENRY MARTEN'S GHOST but also personal things about his life, general life in Northern Ireland during the days of struggle, about heroes and martyrs, filled with beauty and tragedy.

Check his site, this man and his band deserve your full attention, in case you are into irish folk and Ireland in general.

Welcome to the devil's playground

Cheers, I am Sascha, Sir Lord Doom, born July 10th 1974, living in Schleswig Holstein / Germany. I sing for a few bands in the hardrock and heavy metal field namely

Forgotten North (
Titan Steele (
Cachura (

Next to this I collect music from folk via 1960s sounds, 70s hardrock / prog, 80s heavy metal to the most extreme death / doom / black metal stuff, I love good, inspired music from all fields.
