Madre Vaca: Knights of the Round Table (2023)

When I was young, I was fascinated by the stories of King Arthur, Galahad, Guinevere and others, and I am sure this is why I named my first GSD, Merlin. Then of course came Rick Wakeman and his astonishingly ambitious and incredible first two albums, and from then on,...

St. Madness: Last Rites. The Final Blessing (2022)

Even though I am seemingly incapable of remembering the names of people I see every day, I do have this weird ability to look at a band name and know if I have ever reviewed them in the past. So when I was offered this release, the bells went off, and a quick trawl...
