Tribulation - The Children Of The Night
Oh well.

Perhaps less proggy, definitely less death metal-ly, definitely more concise. Definitely brilliant. Don't miss this gem.

Evergrey - Factory, Tallinn, Estonia, 26.03.2015 10.04

Evergrey have been long-awaited guests around these parts. Even though they come from a country so close, it's apparently still a lengthy journey to drop by. To some, Evergrey are a band about 10 years past their prime, but their latest album seems to have gotten the blood flowing again and has gained some good attention. Regardless of the reasons, it was a pleasure to see them hit the stage in Tallinn as part of the Tallinn Music Week festival. (by Ivor)   Read more ››

Getting Into: Manowar 29.03

Leng Tch'e - Hypomanic (2010)

Leng Tch'e is a band that plays some quite passable and pleasant grindcore that doesn't really excel at anything. Hypomanic is more of the same slightly above-average grind-death with a hardcore edge from these Belgian musicians. Stylistically, Leng Tch'e currently sounds a whole lot like Napalm Death, an influence confirmed by the band with the inclusion of one Barney Greenway on guest vocals in the track "Totalitarian". This is certainly not the only track where Napalm... (by jupitreas)   Read more ››
