Westfield Massacre - Westfield Massacre

Kamelot - Premiere New Music Video 03.05

Symphonic metallers Kamelot just returned from some European sold out shows and they are now ready to unleash their brand new music video for the track "My Therapy" which you might recognize from their latest record, Haven. According to the band, this video is intended to shine a spotlight on social anxiety that affects up to 20% of adults worldwide. See how the video turned out below. (by BloodTears)   Read more ››
 
Seventh Wonder - Sign Deal With Frontiers Music Srl 03.05

It looks like that new Seventh Wonder album is finally being released. Two years ago, the progressive metallers released a new video and song but their new album hasn't seen the light of day yet. However, the Swedes just signed a multi album deal with Frontiers Music Srl. The Great Escape was their latest album before the band went on hiatus following singer Tommy Karevik being chosen to take Roy Kahn's place in Kamelot. Seventh Wonder is now ready to start again and has plans to return with a live recording and a brand new album next year. (by BloodTears)   Read more ››

Converge - To Release 'You Fail Me: Redux' 03.05

Remember Converge's 2004 album You Fail Me? A remixed, remastered, and repackaged version of the album will be available this June 17th, titled You Fail Me Redux. To get an idea of what to expect, listen to "You Fail Me" from this release here. Never quite content with the original mix, You Fail Me Redux was remixed by guitarist Kurt Ballou at his God City studios. The release was also remastered by Alan Douches (Motörhead, Mastodon), and repackaged 
by vocalist/artist Jacob Bannon. (by BloodTears)   Read more ››

Roadburn Festival 2016 - Day 1: The Overload 01.05

You were with us in 2014, even though you weren't. You were with us in 2015, even though you weren't. And now, from afar, even though you weren't with us when it actually happened, you're about to take the journey through Roadburn Festival once more this year through the personal retellings of Apothecary and Mr. Doctor. Strap on the Big Boy undies: we're entering the portal yet again. (by Apothecary, Mr. Doctor)   Read more ››
 
Hellfest - Starting the Second Decade 28.04

Ahhh, Hellfest… The biggest French metal festival, and for a time the only one. We here in the MS towers have quite a few fond memories of it. We weren't here last year for this tenth anniversary edition, but by all accounts it was a success. And, as you'll have guessed, we (well, at least I) will be there, so expect a report about it sometime during July. Now, I won't really introduce y'all to Hellfest once again - there's this two-years old but still relevant article, and a string of reports with a shitload of galleries for that ;). But for those too lazy to check, here... (by Darkside Momo)   Read more ››
 
Amon Amarth, Entombed A.D., Exmortus - House Of Blues, Boston, MA - 23 Apr 2016 26.04

I've only taken two pictures at a concert before, both of Sabaton. One is a black square and the other is blue with some white, swirly shapes. I can't entertain you with visuals, but I do know how to put words next to each other, so I figured I'd give this "concert report" dealie a proper go. I had been looking forward to this concert for months and months. Not only had I (positively) reviewed the new albums from each band on the bill, a circumstance which I found mildly interesting, but this was to be the first time I got a proper shot at experiencing Amon Amarth in concert....

Nibiru 02.05

It was a very spur-of-the-moment type of occasion. Not even five days before leaving for this year's Roadburn Festival, I received an email from a representative of NeeCee Agency in Italy saying that the ritualistic dronemasters in Nibiru were looking for interviews. As I was already planning on interviewing Oranssi Pazuzu at the festival, I thought I'd go two for two. There was room for one more, and I was happy to help the band out with some publicity. Why not?

Oranssi Pazuzu 28.04

Three years of Roadburn Festival have taught me that with the lineup announcements for this quirky annual event in Tilburg, you never quite know what you're going to get. So, naturally, my jaw dropped in disbelief when Walter and company revealed that they'd be going for a "Finnish invasion" by booking the full package of Oranssi Pazuzu, Dark Buddha Rising, and Atomikylä this year, especially in regards to Oranssi Pazuzu, a band whose peculiar blend of black metal and psychedelia has had me hooked pretty damn hard for quite some time now. But merely seeing these guys wasn't... (by Apothecary)   Read more ››
 
Obituary 12.03

Obituary - a band which needs no introduction. I recently had the pleasure to sit down with drummer Donald Tardy and we briefly talked about a new album, the possibilities of a new video and about the death metal scene in general. But we also talked a whole lot about the organization and every aspect of the newest and brightest star of metal Festivals in the US: the first edition of Florida Metal Fest. (by D.T.

Judas Priest - Redeemer Of Souls (2014)

Quietly setting aside the musty orchestrations and unfamiliar, off-putting theatrics that suffocated Nostradamus, Judas Priest have once again decided to ditch all excessive trappings for a "good, old-fashioned" sort of album. (by ScreamingSteelUS)   Read more ››
