Spiralism: Chakras Categories: Albums • Finland • Metal Spiralism: Chakras Last week I shared the first single off psychedelic metal band Spiralism's debut album, 'Chakras', saying that 'Weighing Of The Heart' was worth checking out if you are into songs where you can listen to the first two or three minutes and still have no idea where it is going. ...

Siberian: Modern Age Mausoleum Categories: Albums • Metal • Sweden Siberian: Modern Age Mausoleum Earlier this year I claimed that if the first track of Siberian’s first full length album was anything to judge by we could be in for quite a treat.

Redwood Hill: Collider Categories: Albums • Denmark • Metal Redwood Hill: Collider Redwood Hill’s 2012 debut 'Descender' was all kinds of awesome, and after witnessing their performance on Copenhell earlier this year I called them "one of the most exciting up-and-coming metal bands in Denmark right now."
