CD REVIEW Nuclear Blast Radio & Club Sampler

Band: V/A Nuclear Blast
Album title: Club - / Radio Singles
Label: Nuclear Blast Records
Distributor: Nuclear Blast Records - PIAS
Release date: April 2012
Release: CD

Nuclear Blast is an independent major record label with smaller companies in Germany (where it was founded by Markus Staiger), the U.S., and Brazil. To name some of the bands under their belt are: Meshuggah, Nile, Hammerfall, Graveyard,….

And as a record company, you always try to look for new ways to promote your bands, what is getting harder and harder these days. So Nuclear Blast again releases a sort of compilation album with new upcoming material from different bands
Once again, the label is  releasing a 21 track counting album (2 discs), with a line up consisting of bands like: Municipal Waste, Epica, Meshuggah, Biohazard, Battle Beast, Overkill, and many, many other names more witch each deliver some of their best and latest work/singles.
So you’ll definitely find something you like on this compilation record. Personally, I find this compilation album a bit less interesting in comparison to previous editions due to certain genres and names on it, but that’s just my personal opinion.
Good music, lot of variation and big names on this one, but would you buy this and get the singles of your favorite band and many more or will you save your cash until the album gets out. Another thing is that this formula is getting old and boring after album number …

70/100
