Best of 2008 – Brat

Top 20

1. Whitesnake – Good To Be Bad

Whitesnake is back! Quality music with a great tour to support its release. Mr Coverdale still has it.

2. Sabaton – The Art Of War

I’m still trying for figure out why I haven’t heard of this band before. Seeing them live at Wacken reinforced this release in my favourite releases this year.

3. Scar Symmetry – Holographic

4. Saint Deamon – In Shadows Lost from the Brave

5. Eluviette – Slania

6. Axel Rudi Pell – Tales of the Crown

7. Biomechanical – Cannibalised

8. Sonic Syndicate – Love and Other Disasters

9. Pain – Cynic Paradise

10. Warrel Dane – Praises To The War Machine

11. Leverage – Blind Fire

12. Avantasia – The Scarecrow

13. Hypocrisy – Catch 22

14. Children of Bodom – Blooddrunk

15. Poisonblack – A Dead Heavy Day

16. Edguy – Tinnitus Sanctus

17. Kataklysm – Prevail

18. Almah – Fragile equality

19. Voodoo Circle – Voodoo Circle

20. Amberian Dawn – River of Tuoni


Saint Deamon

So some of the members are tried and true, but ‘Nobby’ Noberg and Ronny Milianowicz (Dionysus) keep coming up with quality line-ups and music to match.


1. A Finnish Summer with Turisus

2. Global Metal


1. Attending a few more obscure intimate European metal festivals.

2. Finally finishing renovations and returning to the local metal scene.


1. Leaving my Wacken tickets on the fridge in Australia.

2. Michele Luppi leaving Vision Divine before I got to see him front the band. Wanting to hear him live was the reason for our trek to RockinField, Italy.
