This is a review of a 2010 compilation "Compendium Of Metal Vol 3" which was released by Metal On Metal Records.
Opening up the compilation is Mortalicum with "Inner Peace" a very dark and heavy doom/power metal song.
Next up is Ragenheart with "The Amulet" a very progressive sounding power metal in the old school direction.
Next up is Nomad Sun a band that plays a very traditional form of doom metal with a live version of "Empyrean Fade".
Next up is Fallen Angels a band that mixes technical thrash with death metal with their song "The Gates Of Irony" a very old school metal song.
Next up with Skelator a band that mixes speed and power metal together with a demo version "Birth Of Steel".
Next up is Heathendom a band that combines power and doom metal together with their epic song "Endistancement By The Null Postion" a very heavy, atmospheric and melodic sounding song.
Next up is Wishdoom a band that mixes traditional metal with doom on their song "Guardians Of Steel" a very dark, melodic and heavy sounding song.
Next up is Catch 22 a band that plays a very technical form of thrash/speed metal with their song "The Haunting" a very heavy and old school sounding song.
Next up is Brutal Hand with "Earth" a very dark and atmospheric sounding power/progressive metal song.
Next up is Frankenshed a band that mixes neo classical with power, speed and thrash metal with their song "The Haunting".
Next up is Sesta Marconi with "Rock And Roll Voodoo Style" a song that mixes hard rock with doom metal.
Next up is Battlerage a band that combines heavy and power metal together with "Battlefield Belongs To Me" a very old school demonstration in true metal.
Next up is Midnight Idols with "Necropolis(City Of The Dead)" a song that combines NWOBHM with power metal.
Next up is F.K.U a band that plays a very heavy and old school mosh pit orientated form of thrash metal with "Phantom Killer Attack".
next up is Metal Law with "Metal Law" a song continuing their hybrid of heavy and power metal together in the old school tradition.
Closing the album is another track from Frankenshed called "Evil Shred Part 3" with a great amount of guitar solos.
In conclussion I feel this is a very great sounding compilation and I would recommend it to all fans of power, speed, thrash and doom metal. RECOMMENDED.
