The underground still lives and continues to give birth to great albums that must not go unnoticed. One of these is Cassandra from Blue Sky Theory, originally from Bremen, Germany. Their brand of Alternative Metal sees eye to eye with leading US bands in the genre when it comes to melody and guitar work, as Patrick Timmermann’s voice leaves nothing to long for and the two six strings crunch out heavy riffs as well as accentuated alternative sounds. Among the nine tracks is not a single one that fails to excite, and for an independent production the sound also has to be praised. With this one album the five put themselves on the Metal map. It is up to the music fans to make sure they are recognized for what they created.

    Frank was a reviewer here at Metal Express Radio, based out of Bavaria, Germany. He has worked in the games industry for more than 20 years, now on the manufacturing side, before on the publishing end. Before this, he edited and handled the layout for a city mag in northern Germany ... maybe that is why he love being part of anything published. Frank got hooked on Metal at the age of 14 when a friend introduced him to AC/DC. They were listening to The Beatles, Madness, and The Police, and he decided they should move on. Well, they did, Back in Black became Frank's first Metal album, and since Germany is reasonably close to England, they had some small New Waves Of British Heavy Metal washing up on their shores: Tygers Of Pan Tang, Samson, Gillan, Iron Maiden, Saxon, Sweet Savage, Diamond Head, etc. If he had to pick his favorite styles, Prog and Power Metal would be at the top of the list.
