German power metal band Brainstorm returns with a new release. On The Spur Of the Moment, their 9th studio album. A less epic album that brings back that good old power metal crispy sound, an example of it are tracks like In The Blink Of An Eye, Temple Of Stone, Dark Life & A life …

Hailing from Norway, Kvelertak play a unique mix of punk and black metal welded together with some good old fashioned rock n’roll that will completely blow your brains out. They’re just plain fun to listen to, and their music begs to be blasted at full volume while driving down the highway. Their first album, which is self-titled, …
Isole is strangely prolific for an epic doom metal band. Their new album, Born from Shadows, is their fifth album in six years. That’s pretty ridiculous no matter which way you look at it. Even the band has no idea how they do it, as Crister Olsson tells me that he doesn’t know how they …
Swedish metallers Katatonia are out on tour right now with Opeth for the North American Heritage Tour. We had the chance to talk with guitarist Anders Nyström when they came to Tempe on Saturday, check out our chat below. Use Facebook to Comment on this Post
As a transplant to Arizona from Dallas, TX, I am all too familiar with Absu. Their take on the black metal genre has always been familiar yet fresh at the same time. They’re also known for writing really involved lyrics – moreso than most black metal bands who focus on Satanic themes. It’s even better …
After the success of their 4rd studio album Delta at the beginning of the year, Visions Of Atlantis returns with more great music. This time condensed on a six track EP titled Maria Magdalena. The name was taken from the 1985 german pop song, original of Sandra, and it’s the track that opens the EP. Visions Of Atlantis …
After three years of absence Iced Earth returns with their tenth studio album Dystopia, an album featuring concepts from V from Vendetta, Equilibrium and Dark City. Without leaving behind the storyline of Something Wicked, the band bring back new chapters to the story, now narrated on the voice of Stu Block (ex-Into Eternity). Who stepped …
Thulcandra has become the path to the past towards a revive of the old school death metal scene that ruled through the 90’s. And their flag is the sound that they took from Dissection and The Unanimated, and made it their own. Is not a copy but a progression, I would say a transcendence of …
Finland’s Insomnium recently released their fifth album, titled One for Sorrow. It’s very dark – not to say that it’s depressing, but the album has the feeling of being resolved to a lonely, somber path. Guitarists Ville Friman and Ville Vanni’s beautiful work immerse the listener in powerful dual guitar lines that are the backbone …
Los Angeles based thrash metal band, Warbringer, has attracted lots of attention and spinning a lot of heads lately. Not only because of their new album Worlds Turn Asunder is one of the most brutal releases of the year so far – you can check out our take on it here – but also because of …
Vallenfyre is the brainchild of Greg Mackintosh, more known for his guitar work in Paradise Lost. The band was born as a tribute to Greg’s father, John Mackintosh, who passed away late 2009. Vallenfyre also includes in their ranks Hamish Glencross (My Dying Bride), Scoot (Doom), Adrian Erlandsson (Paradise Lost), and Mully a guitar player friend of Mackintosh, all …
