Rockstadt Extreme Fest 2019
by RaduP | 17.08
Rockstadt Extreme Fest is also a very important one for me, being the first festival I ever attended with my girlfriend, back in 2015. Ever since we've only been together, and though we skipped last year, this was a year to be young again, so we went back to where we started and see how much it has changed.

by RaduP, musclassia, nikarg | 13.08
We here at Metal Storm pride ourselves on our thousands of metal reviews and interviews and article; metal is our collective soul and passion, which is why we bother with this junk. That being said, we'd be lying if we stuck to our trve-kvlt guns and claimed that metal is the only thing we ever listen to.

ARTmania Festival 2019
by RaduP | 11.08
ARTmania is pretty much a yearly tradition for me, being the festival which I've attended for the longest time, yearly since 2013. I may not have attended both days for all of the years I've been, but the July trek to Sibiu is something I did for a long time and I'll do for as long as I remain in Romania. This time was also special, it being the first ever even where I got media accreditation. So I'm gonna tell you a bit about this year's edition.
