JOHN STEFANIS' Best of 2007

1. ROTTING CHRIST Theogonia

After many years of maltreatment by the music industry and under the protective wings of a new and more appropriate record label, the members of Rotting Christ found the much needed strength and divine inspiration to release what can only be described as the best extreme metal release of the new millennium!

2. PAIN OF SALVATION Scarsick

Experimentation was always part of Pain Of Salvation's musical outlook, but not even the most acquainted fans of Daniel Gildenlow's musical genius were ready for an album of such a brilliant and diverse nature as "Scarsick".

3. DEADSOUL TRIBE A Lullaby For The Devil

More emotional than "The January Tree", heavier than "The Dead Word", Devon Graves' latest brainchild signals the beginning of a new era for the only one band capable of continuing the same musical chapter that was left open by the break up of Psychotic Waltz.

4. PRIMORDIAL To The Nameless Dead

Describing the suffering of the Irish nation to the world through music is to the members of Primordial a task as sacred as was for Richard the Lionheart the reconquering of the 'Holy Land' and the destruction of the armies of Saladin. Is "To The Nameless Dead" an album capable of conveying such strong emotions? You bet!


5. W.A.S.P Dominator

Much as I respect W.A.S.P, I never expected them to come up with an album as mind blowing as "Dominator". This is not only Blackie Lawless at his very best but also a proof that classic Heavy Metal is still alive and kicking - even at times when strong eyeliner and funky haircuts are considered more important by good quality guitar riffs.
