Turmion Kätilöt - Postpone Album Release, Give Fanciful Explanations 03.09

Finnish industrial band Turmion Kätilöt have had their new album, Diskovibrator, delayed by two weeks. The album was originally going to be released on the 11th of September but has been postponed until the 25th. Reasons for the delay include colorful incidents such as the drummer's dog eating the hard drive and one of the vocalists losing his falsetto voice (Turmion Kätilöt in fact mostly use low-pitched, gruff vocals). The real reason, according to the band's official Facebook page, is that the main vocalist, MC Raaka Pee, "got his second (not a joke) set of... (by Netzach)   Read more ››

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.

Frontside - Twilight Of The Gods - A First Step To The Mental Revolution (2006)

When I first read on the cover of my promotional copy that Nergal of Behemoth said about Frontside (I'm quoting him) "This band proves that Metalcore may have big balls! Mindblowing energy with lots of melody. Awesome band!" I thought that I had in my hand something which was probably surprising and original, something new finally! Actually I will let you know it right now, "Twilight Of The Gods - A First Step To The Mental Revolution" is definitely not the good European... (by Jeff)   Read more ››
