The reissue blog has been on the boil for almost eight months now, and over that time I’ve reissued 51 of the 71 Ogg-Casts that will need that treatment. I’ve had to listen to every one of them, start to finish, to make sure there are no errors that slid through the net first time round – and in doing so I’ve been rediscovering some of the bands I haven’t featured in far too long. Sabaton and Juodvarnis were the two bands I had on Ogg-Cast 72 that made me think of making this review show where others who had been similarly dormant are brought back to be celebrated once more. Quite a few of them, it turns out, have made new albums this year, which are well worth catching up on.

Part One contains the first batch of new releases for the year, alongside a return to Wacken’s Metal Battle from years past and the Hammer of Retribution World Tour from 2012. In Part Two, there’s a bizarre cover version, Lennard reviews his older (and not so old) Tunes Of Yore, and Nottingham’s finest musician of the day gets a three-track tribute. And in Part Three, Ogg-Casts Of The Pasts looks back at four of 2014’s reissued shows (out of the 11 available), along with the last few bands I’ve recently rediscovered. The last band of the show get 11 minutes to show us why it’s been worth a Wintersun-esque eight year wait for their return…

Also, Lennard requires that I post the links to the official downloads of Seith’s (short) discography:
