Anette Olzon - Shine: Anette Olzon – as every metal fan knows – has been the front woman of Finnish symphonic-metal superstars Nightwish. Her solo debut album, Shine, is nothing else than a masterpiece in the fields of darker yet melancholic pop rock genre, shining mostly because of its catchines, powerful vocal performance, professional songwriting, deep, yet insightful lyrics and amazing production. “Does it sound like Nightwish?” It’s the question that everybody would probably like to ask… It doesn’t but it definitely does, would be the most accurate answer.

Astari Nite - Stereo Waltz: American alternative darkwave rock ensemble Astari Nite gave us a surprisingly good debut album in the beginning of the last year, which definitely shows that darkwave/gothic rock is not just an European thing. Album is full of nicely flowing melancholic, yet catchy melodies and vocal lines, intriguing ambiances, even shoegaze elements, electronic sparks and post-punk energy, mostly delivered with kind of an indie attitude.

Laboratory 5 - Awake In The Dark: Imagine a wild crossover between dubstep, trance and industrial set in a dystopian futuristic landscape. Yes, that’s right – the cyberpunk. All these different elements create such wild journey: each and every song is so dense, yet the dynamics seems so effortless. The passages inside each and every track are so incredibly smoothly executed and held in perfect balance. This release is so intelligent, vigorous and captivating that every sci-fi fan must be engulfed to the album’s atmosphere in a blink of an eye. Read a review HERE. Links: Website, Facebook

Lacuna Coil - Broken Crown Halo: Musically Broken Crown Halo holds heavy guitar mixing within the songs, pounding bass lines and a more down-tune style. Now, there is no way we can talk about Lacuna Coil without mentioning their absolutely stunning vocalist, Cristina Scabbia, and her transcendental voice. She is vocally growing with each and every release and always puts 100% of herself in the music and she did it again. Read a review HERE. Links: Website, Facebook

Mark Kelson - Resurgence: Those who have found their peace in art/progressive and evergreen sweeping atmospheric rock of later era Pink Floyd will find their home in here. Resurgence is like a warm inner journey, a healing place for the hurt ones, it embraces with many sweet melodies and captivating vocal lines. Fans of Anathema, Antimatter and similar modern melancholic atmospheric rockers will as well enjoy on many segments where harmonic guitar lines cut deep into the soul. Read a review HERE.

NFD - Waking The Dead: NFD fires on all cylinders again, roaring across gritty sound moors that few souls tread and leaving an unmistakable trail of elegy in its wake. Whether through raucous, attractive drives, based on flawless songwriting and delivery rather than on a mere overdose of force, velocity and volume, or through haunting ambiances flooded with sorrowful synths and epic, both edge and dreamy chords, these songs get deeper in your mind and never won't leave. Sometimes even all of the foregoing converges within the same track, triggering a rapture in the listener. Links: Facebook

The Pussybats - PussyPussyBangBang: Sometimes simplicity of sounds pays off for sure and PussyPussyBangBang is the proof of that. This album surely deserves some attention, especially from audience who enjoys some old school sounding garage rock and is not afraid of some bouncing between different music styles. Listening to this album will give you a feeling you’re on a rollercoaster drive; at the moments you will enjoy in the panoramic view that will overwhelm you from head to toe and at other times it will make you scream, because your bloodstream will be flushed with adrenaline.
