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.

11 days to go.

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.
