Succubi’s are defined as demons who take the form of beautiful women, in order to seduce men. If the band Black Succubi are demons, they have taken form as metal heads who will tear your world apart with heavy guitar riffs, powerful vocals and hard crashing rhythms.
When I first read about this Scandinavian metal act, I knew they could be something special, but I had no idea they would be this good.
Not only is Black Succubi’s new disc a great new metal album, it will compete with Testament’s The Formation of Damnation for best of 2008. On this CD, I hear heavy riffs that remind me of Pantera, Halford and Black Label Society. I love all of those bands so I found this album very much to my liking.
Jan Lundstrom is one of the best new metal singers that I have heard in a long time. When you hear the combined guitar might of Thomas Pedersen, and Michael Larsen, you will think you have died and gone to metal heaven. Black Succubi has some great guest appearances on this record as well. Mercyful Fate’s Hank Shermann adds a guitar solo on the tune “Cry For Your Brother”, and Iron Fire’s Kirk Bacharach on the song “Psychotic Meltdown”.
Bottom line, this album is heavy as hell, and absolutely killer. No metal fan should be without this!

Warrant posted the following bulletin this evening: It is with the deepest regret that we have to announce that Jani Lane will no longer be performing with Warrant. From the beginning of our reunion talks to the last note of our last show together in Houston this past weekend we have had nothing but good intentions of bringing a quality original Warrant show to our fans and friends. We wish Jani nothing but the best and remain friends.
We are very excited that we have found an unbelievable voice in Robert Mason, an old friend of the band. We have three dates confirmed, come out and judge for yourself…we don’t think you will be disappointed!
