Exactly 3 years after Kingdom of the Night II, Axxis returns with a new album called... Retrolution?

http://www.axxis.de/eng_news.html

"After the euphoric digital evolution there's a kind of trend back to "retro" and "vintage". vinyl records, tape recording, rebuild of old school euipment etc.
It seems that we're all living in a kind of "vintage" or "retro" revolution. But that was exactly the time we 're coming from. And who could be better understand this than a band that has experienced this period of time...like us:-) So, we've created a title that should express this feeling and - of course - the mood of the songs! And... RETROLUTION was born!"


Stupid title, but at least Axxis are upfront about trying to recreate the early albums. They've basically been doing that since 2000. First they went Back to the Kingdom (of the Night), then they did Kingdom of the Night 2 and now they are turning back the clocks once again with Retrolution.

A couple of English reviews out already:

http://mwiemetalblog.over-blog.com/2017/01/cd-review-axxis-retrolution.html

Neither really says much, but both extremely positive with ratings of 5/5 and 9/10 respectively.

Really? I thought the two Kingdom of the Night II albums were wonderful.

My first Axxis CD was Back to the Kingdom. It's still among my favourites. Definitely one of their best, actually.

This shipped two days early, so I'm blasting it now at home.

Good times, listening to a new album by your favourite band Very Happy

For the benefit of new fans (and for the amusement of old fans), I ranked Axxis albums on Rateyourmusic. I added brief reviews for each entry:

The new one comes in at #12

Great reviews! A good way to familiarize me with the band's catalogue.

What a great record. Just played this again today. All My Friends Are Liars, Burn Down Your House etc just capture that something that I like about music in general.

Always makes me feel good. And this is simple music that catches that emotion. Also works very good after a beer or two.



I'm an Axxis nut.

I even kind of like Matters of Survival, though it's clearly their worst.

My first Axxis was Doom Of Destiny and I still love it and listen to it regularly. I also got Etopia but it wasn't nearly as good (though the guest vocalist heavy 20 Years Anniversary Song was great). Later was lucky to find a good, cheap copy of Kingdom Of The Night.

If you like Doom of Destiny, you'll love Paradise in Flames. They are like a tandem. A lot of similarities, starting with the same female (shared) lead vocalist. Paradise in Flames is also my favourite Axxis record.

Kingdom of the Night is an excellent piece of 80s German metal, too. Actually Axxis is pretty solid. The only ones I'd avoid are Matters of Survival and Voodoo Vibes, the 90s albums.

Kingdom of the Night II is also excellent classic Axxis style music, but with modern production. And a double CDs worth of music.
