Treading the path laid forth by US power metal greats like Jag Panzer and Sanctuary, Solitary Sabred are primed to release their third full length titled By Fire & Brimstone via No Remorse Records.
Ironsword are back after a five year hiatus with their latest album, Servants of Steel. If you’ve ever heard Ironsword before, then you know exactly what to expect from them. They play a brand of epic heavy metal that operates at neck-breaking speeds and their quality and consistency earned them a well deserved spot on our epic heavy metal essentials.
There’s a subset of heavy metal albums that are must listens, albums so masterful and important that they almost transcend the genre itself. No metal journey is complete without listening to them. I’m sure you’ve just thought of a few; Powerslave, Stained Class, Master of Reality, Don’t Break the Oath, etc. Today I’d like to discuss an album that I strongly feel belongs in this category – Artillery’s By Inheritance.

It’s hard to believe that the year (and decade too!) is over in just one week.

Now it’s time to look back at some of the Ride into Glory author team’s favorite traditional heavy metal releases from the past year!
The end of the year is drawing to a close and it’s safe to say that 2019 has been a monumental year for traditional heavy metal. The Ride into Glory author team has already began comparing notes as we compile our “Best of 2019” article similar to last year’s. This year, we plan to do things a little differently. We’re still going to have our own best of 2019 list, but we also want to hear from you: our wonderful readers!
Named after the iconic Slayer song, Great Britain’s Aggressive Perfector channel the same carnal energy found on Slayer’s early material. Aggressive Perfector originally formed back in 2014 and put out an aptly titled demo called Satan’s Heavy Metal just a couple of years later. Now the stage is finally set for their debut album – Havoc at the Midnight Hour.
After nearly four years of virtual silence, epic heavy metal band Terminus are ready to unleash their second album, A Single Point of Light, via Cruz Del Sur Records. Despite just one album to their name prior to this, the sheer quality of Terminus’s songwriting makes them stand out as one of the genre’s finest newcomers.
