Wait A Minute! This Isn't Metal! - December 2019
by RaduP, musclassia, Abattoir | 12.01
We here at Metal Storm pride ourselves on our thousands of metal reviews and interviews and article; metal is our collective soul and passion, which is why we bother with this junk. That being said, we'd be lying if we stuck to our trve-kvlt guns and claimed that metal is the only thing we ever listen to.

A few weeks have passed since we learned of the death of Marcel Hubregtse, a man we knew as one of Metal Storm's most devoted stalwarts for the vast majority of the site's existence.

Façade - The Eternal Dance

Bandcamp music player
Marcel did not get to post his "Best Of 2019" list but The Eternal Dance was one of his favourites and Façade is fronted by his friend (and Phlebotomized's vocalist) Ben de Graaff.

One motion ends, but a new one follows up to continue the dance. One life ends, but a new life is born.
