Bad English - The Secret Behind Bad English Revealed 03.04
With the recent April Fools' Bad English saga of first pretending that he is permabanned and then that his English skills are a gimmick, we've had second thoughts after seeing a fair deal of people take the second seriously because it was posted on April 2nd instead of April 1st. We felt a bit guilty about continuing the joke after April Fools', so we decided to come clean about Bad English.

Getting Into: Agalloch
by RaduP | 29.03
Agalloch was my favorite band for a really, really long time, and maybe they still are, maybe not, but I'll always appreciate them for the importance they've had in shaping my musical taste. Having thankfully seen them at one of their last-ever performances is probably one of my proudest lacks of regret, if that makes sense. Deciding to write my first Getting Into, there was really no second-guessing as to which band I would dedicate it to.

Wait A Minute! This Isn't Metal! - February 2020
by RaduP, Abattoir, musclassia | 20.03
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.

Dola - Dola

Bandcamp music player
The self-titled debut album of Dola is a fine combination of black metal, doom, drone and even some post-rock. At first sight, nothing new but everything sounds fresh and fun. Definitely an album that will make your quarantine period more pleasant... Poland did it again!
