CA-1

Since I got to listen the début album, Lammendam (2008) for the first time, the ghostly dutch trio Carach Angren got my attention. Right from the start,their style is different to any other symphonic black metal band out there, even though they used almost the same stage presence, their music and attitude of Carach Angren sets them apart for the regular pack.  Read the rest of this entry »

Iggor Cavalera of Cavalera Conspiracy talked to us about Pandemonium, Mixhell and Football

CAVELERACONSPIRACY_050714_117

As I write this lines, I am listening to one of the most aggressive records of this year. Cavalera Conspiracy‘s third studio album, Pandemonium. This new album is the single heaviest piece of music that the Cavalera Brothers have created to date.

My only expression at the time was ‘What the fuck is this?, this so amazingly heavy’. Which is pretty much what I think of the new Cavalera Conspiracy.

AtTheGatesAtWarWithReality

After their sudden and shocking breakup in 1996, At the Gates seemed to be destined to disappear into metal history books. However, that all changed in 2008 when they got back together to play a few shows and, as guitarist Anders Björler stated, it was a way of “getting closure.” They continued to tour in the years to follow, but maintained that there were no plans to record new material. However, as the old adage goes, never say never. The calling was far too great and nearly 19 years to the day, At the Gates unleash At War with Reality upon the masses. Read the rest of this entry »

Jarvis Leatherby of Night Demon checked in with The Age Of Metal

NDLast Wednesday (10/15/14) we witness of the return of heavy metal to its very basic form, not adorns, not spectacularly, just plain and simple drums, killer guitar riffs and galloping bass line.
