If you‘ve been thinking the only common thing between Sweden and epic doom metal was Candlemass, then you have been wrong for at least since 2015, when Sorcerer’s official full-length debut was released. Being from the same school of melodic, epic doom with great expressive vocals, Sorcerer released their first two demos in 1989 and..
I missed these guys. Honestly. From the very first few seconds of the opening title track, one is reminded how important Vomitory are and have been to the death metal scene. Brothers Urban and Tobias Gustafsson have formed the band some 34 years ago and until 2013 the Swedes released eight fantastic albums, neither of..
Undisputed kings of Viking heavy metal, Amon Amarth, have announced their twelfth studio album, The Great Heathen Army today. The 9-track aural assault will be released on Friday, August 5th, 2022 via Metal Blade Records. Pre-orders are available now with the first 1000 orders via the band's European Victorious Merch store receiving a free signed poster. Today's announcement is highlighted by the release..
On August 6, 2021, three-time Grammy-nominated hard rock heavyweights and platinum-selling band Killswitch Engage unleashed a streaming event that took fans by storm. The event took place at The Palladium in Worcester in the band's native Massachusetts, which has been the site of many iconic KsE shows throughout the band's history. The performance setlist consists of 2019's Atonement in full, along with..
Sanhedrin have a lot of reasons to be proud, like signing a deal with a great label, but an even better one is their fantastic new album Lights On, which was released on March 4th. We are glad to have been given the chance to talk with front-woman Erica about the new album, the inspiration..
Brooklyn’s Sanhedrin (the meaning of which you can read about here) are one of the best old school sounding heavy metal bands since their inception in 2015. Their first two full lengths A Funeral For The World (independently released in 2017) and The Poisoner (2019, Cruz Del Sur Music) gradually raised the band’s popularity and..
Are you familiar with the band Bulldozing Bastard? That German duo released two brutal black/speed metal albums in 2013 and 2015, before both of the musicians involved (bassist Andreas and frontman/guitarist Stefan) decided to form Vulture, together with members of Luzifer and Wifebeater. Now, Vulture has been a slightly different beast than Bulldozing Bastard –..
When it came to the original thrash scene from the 1980s, it was not all about the so-called 'Big Four'. While debate will continue to rage as to whether it should have been four or five or ten bands that set the scene alight, it's a perennial discussion that is best left until the pubs..
Joey Vera is an old school legend – nothing less. Pulling the fat strings in Armored Saint since 1982, and also being a central figure in prog veterans Fates Warning for the last 23 years is an impressive CV, to say the least. We have new albums coming out from both his main bands (Armored..
The truest of the true and one of the most cult and appreciated bands from the 80s is back with its first new studio album in 29 years. Yes, it is Californians Cirith Ungol we are talking about. Forever Black is out since April 24th through Metal Blade (who else?) and it’s like the last..
