Ahab - The Boats Of The Glen Carrig
Duh, doom.

Ahab are constantly evolving . Every album adds something new to their repertoire. In this (theoretically) confined genre Ahab always finds another way to surprise us, another direction towards which to push the genre. The Boats of the Glen Carrig might be the most brilliant facet of this gem that is Ahab.

Motörhead - More Gigs Cancelled 05.09

Motörhead's current North American tour is still not running smoothly. Because of frontman Lemmy Kilmister health issues, the metallers have had to cancel their Dallas and Houston appearances as well. Saxon still played in each city.

On the mesmerizing banks of the river Rhein, on the top of a huge rock called Loreley, Night of the Prog celebrated its 10th anniversary this year.

Hard Rock Laager 2015 - Vana-Vigala, Estonia, 03-04.07.2015 13.07

It's been so long since the last time I was at Hard Rock Laager. It's, to put it bluntly, quite embarrassing. When I looked it up, it turned out that I have skipped 6 editions. It's surprisingly 2 less than I initially thought, though. The reasons have varied from Hellfests to conflicting schedules, as well as the lack of interest for any particular line-up, and laziness. In those skipped editions I only really regret missing Trail Of Tears and I didn't intend to repeat this mistake with Threshold. And being there again, it felt like a homecoming.

Moss - Tombs Of The Blind Drugged (2009)

The masters of the filthy tunnel of horrors are back with a new invitation to a journey of insanity. Still on Rise Above Records, the British Moss desires no change in style. Why change a winning formula, after all? Their two full-lengths, Chtonic Rites and Sub Templum, where two albums filled with Drone, Doom, various perverted and distorted audial extremities and a healthy dose of madness. "Tombs Of The Blind Drugged" is no different. Although, this is actually a compilation containing... (by Lucas)   Read more ››

Three of Eisregen's albums have been banned in their home country Germany, namely Krebskolonie, Farbenfinsternis and Wundwasser. The band still plays the songs of these albums live, just slightly altered, so that the performed songs aren't identical with the prohibited ones. For example the song "Meine tote russische Freundin" (My Dead Russian Girlfriend) becomes "Meine tote schwedische Freundin" (My Dead Swedish Girlfriend) live.
