Blliigghhtted - Into The Cunt Of The Witch
Review by Mr. Doctor
One of Blliigghhtted's candles was suddenly blown away as one of the members, Ruhan, committed suicide during December 2015 But just like the embers of a candle can ignite a new flame, Ruhan's unfortunate death is the main force behind the final album by this project.


Dark Forest (UK) - Beyond The Veil
Review by Susan
Yeah, I like classic Elvenking, too.


Lascaille's Shroud - The Roads Leading North
Review by ScreamingSteelUS
You know that Lascaille's Shroud is a great band because I'm not pissed off that I had to sit through over two hours of album just to hear The Roads Leading North a single time.


We Are The Catalyst - Elevation
Review by Susan
Spoiler alert: it kicks ass. In fact, this is exactly how to present a sophomore album:


Mistur - In Memoriam
Review by ScreamingSteelUS
Mistur excels at creating atmosphere. In Memoriam is lousy with layers of instrumentation that never cease building on each other, and the results are monstrous in scale.


ADX - Non Serviam
Review by ScreamingSteelUS
For a band in its fourth decade of existence, ADX sounds surprisingly spry and spirited. No, scratch that - for any band, ADX has a lot of heart, a lot of charisma, and a clear, powerful sound that seems to be quite rare in today's speed and thrash circles.


Kognitiv Tod - Eternal Return
Review by Apothecary
Psychedelic black metal. There's something about this bizarre union of genres that actually works a lot better than most would probably expect. Black metal, as hypnotizing and otherworldly as it often is, seems to be an almost ideal partner for the dreamlike realms of psilocybin, ego death, and spirit guardians. The inclination towards pushing boundaries in both genres has led to a pleasant diversity of sounds among psychedelic black metal bands, some very dark and chaotic, others embracing a more mellow, "floating" type feeling. Kognitiv Tod opts for the latter formula.


Zeal And Ardor - Devil Is Fine
Review by Windrider
Once in a while there comes a time when new ways open up for music. Frontiers are being torn down and ideas can stream freely, going on a journey that takes them through many discussions and lets the creator experience both hatred and admiration. It always takes its time until a new sound is essentially established and the occasions where one can witness the birth of a new style are rare. So we are truly fortunate drunkards to live in the time where Zeal And Ardor release their second album to date, Devil Is Fine.

70000 Tons Of Metal 2016 - Part One: Why You Should Go Next Year 12.07

Wow, it's already July; time is flying fast and the organizers of the 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise are hard at work hammering out the details for the 2017 edition.

ScreamingSteel's Top 10 Best Metal Covers of Non-Metal Songs 11.07

The more I branch out into different forms of content on Metal Storm, the more I realize something: I don't have all that many original ideas myself, but I sure can parrot other people's work like nobody's business. That revelation made my next choice of publication inevitable: my own installment of the covers list thing, so that you may all cower at yet further evidence of my superior tastes. If you think I've missed something, I encourage you to check Dane Train's or BitterCOld's list to see if the song was already featured, and then to voice your concern in a civil...

Skyforger 22.07

Bad English: This may be a weird question, but how do you envision the Latvian metal scene if bands such as Skyforger and Heaven Grey had never existed? Peter Kvetkovskis: Well, there was always and still is another bands around - the metal scene here is quite big enough even without Skyforger or Heaven Grey. The question is how unique and original those bands are, but that's another topic to talk about I guess. It is very hard to make your name worldwide if you are from such a small far away country like Latvia is. You must be somehow original to stand out from millions of bands playing...

Bad English: Hi. Thank you for doing this interview with us at Metal Storm. NPJ: No problems!! Bad English: Can you introduce yourself, and tell us how you decided to become a singer and how you started listening to metal? NPJ: Oh, well things just happened.

NPJ: Yes, I am from Kvarnsveden, Borlänge Kommun and of course I support Leksand. There is no alternative. Well, now Borlänge... (by Bad English)   Read more ››
Pantheist 14.07

Bad English: Hi. Thank you for doing this interview with us at Metal Storm. Kostas Panagiotou: It's a pleasure as Metal Storm is one of my favourite metal sites on the net! Bad English: Can you introduce yourself, and tell us about your first steps into music, both as a listener and as a musician? KP: I grew up in Greece and you are immediately exposed to a lot of music in this country. Greeks like to party, and as they are emotional people they also like to express their emotions through listening to their favourite songs, so music is everywhere. I only started to think of myself as a... (by Bad English)   Read more ››

Liturgy (US-NY) - The Ark Work (2015)

If I had a time machine, I wouldn't use it to kill Hitler. I wouldn't introduce Abraham Lincoln to the concept of bodyguards. No, I wouldn't teach Columbus how to play nice or derail the First World War or punch Enver Pasha in the face. I would use it to stop this album from being made. (by ScreamingSteelUS)   Read more ››
