If you have found this blog, it probably means you were searching for something that isn’t in the public eye. My intention is to promote awareness of artists that you would otherwise likely never know existed. If you like what you hear, support the artist by purchasing their music so that they can continue to create, and enjoy the release in the quality they intended.

Over the years this has grown into my own personal project, reviewing the artists that I discover and interest me. If you wish to see more of my work, particularly my more metal-orientated material, you can find me as a regular contributor for the online magazine
Axis of Metal.

Hizaki Grace Project

Posted by T. Bawden Saturday, 4 April 2009

Hungry for some more hot Hizaki action? Here’s a (mostly) live album, and two of his earlier EPs featuring vocalists from various bands. Both are solid efforts, with some good material but nothing distinctly spectacular. If you enjoyed ‘Versailles’ and ‘Curse of Virgo,’ its definitely worth a glance, otherwise you’re not missing much. As a note, ‘Dignity of Crest’ is largely a live performance (Track 5 onwards) which is largely the same as found in ‘Ruined Kingdom,’ and actually sounds remarkably similar to the studio version.
