Here's another reason: The first single ’Í Huldusal‘, which has everything ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Stench: Archways Categories: Metal • Sweden • Tracks Stench: Archways Deathmetallers Stench will release their second album ‘Venture’ late September in Europe and late October in North America. Judging from the first single ‘Archways’ we could be in for quite a treat. It’s repetitive and dark, primitive, yet atmospheric. And most of all: Pretty damn great. (Click To Continue Reading)
Sólstafir: Ótta Categories: Albums • Alternative • Iceland • Metal Sólstafir: Ótta It has always been a bit of a stretch to call Sólstafir metal. On ‘Ótta’ the term really doesn’t make sense anymore, but I got no better genre that really covers it. The Icelandic four-piece just makes music. Haunting, beautiful, rich, atmospheric music that sounds like nothing else. ‘Ótta’ may ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Meadows End: The Sufferwell Categories: Albums • Metal • Sweden Meadows End: The Sufferwell You can’t accuse Meadows End for rushing things through. They played together for almost a decade before releasing their debut album and now we have had to wait for four years for them to make the followup, 'The Sufferwell'. Luckily it's been worth the wait. While the Swedes debut 'Ode ... (Click To Continue Reading)

Sólstafir: Ótta Categories: Iceland • Metal • Tracks Sólstafir: Ótta As regular readers might know we are quite fond of Sólstafir, deeming their albums anything from "stunningly brilliant" to "motherf***ing awesome". So we are pretty darn excited about their forthcoming album 'Ótta' - especially after listening to the title track. It’s almost ten minutes long and it is stunning. And ...

Copenhell 2014: The flashback Categories: Denmark • Faroe Islands • Finland • Live • Metal • Norway • Sweden Copenhell 2014: The flashback As a first time visitor, not really a long time listener, I made this note on my phone as I was sitting in the sun, perfectly cold beered, and with Behemoth on the main stage playing with fire and other occult props: Everybody should visit Copenhell at least once, if ...

Heidra: Awaiting Dawn Categories: Albums • Denmark • Metal Heidra: Awaiting Dawn Every year the record label Mighty Music hosts Mighty Fight Night where a handful of promising Danish metal bands compete for a record deal and an appearance at the Copenhell festival.

Shape Of Colour: Alive Categories: Albums • Finland • Metal Shape Of Colour: Alive Hardcore/post-rock is all the rage these days and while there are a lot of great bands out there, there are also quite a few that are essentially pointless. Shape Of Colour isn't one of the latter. The Finnish five-piece just released their debut EP, 'Alive', and it is indeed alive ... (Click To Continue Reading)

Pray For Locust: In The Shadow Of The Colossus Categories: Albums • Metal • Sweden Pray For Locust: In The Shadow Of The Colossus This is the third release and second full length album by Pray For Locust and, according to vocalist Tintin Andersen, the first album with no compromises.
