Tesseract – Scala/Odyssey ‘Live audio’ (2015)

TS

British quintet TesseracT has been active and constantly evolving since their international break through in 2011 with their album One, they are now releasing their first live CD/DVD titled Scala/Odyssey, which basically is a trip through their two first albums. What makes this album different is not that the video portion of the album was recorded at the Scala theater in London last November, and the Odyssey portion was recorded during the second leg of the Altered State in different parts of Europe. The true difference is how TesseracT sounds with returning vocalist Daniel Tompkins, who recently re-joined the band.   Read the rest of this entry »

Currently Delain is finishing their third North American tour in three consecutive years, something that gradually for their fan base it had become some sort of tradition (yes, we would love to have them in 2016 too, let’s hope that happens). But since their first tour in 2013, Delain had played decent size venues across North America, but nothing compared to their May 1st show at The Greek in Los Angeles, CA.  Read the rest of this entry »

Korpiklaani – Noita (2015)

Korpiklaani - Noita

I will say openly to begin with that this girl has a pretty big bias for folk music, so it will be rather hard for me not to enjoy the new Korpiklaani release. Either way, Nuclear Blast and Korpiklaani have come together again after a three-year wait to release the band’s ninth and one of their best albums to date- Noita. Read the rest of this entry »
