Decaptacon - For Those Who Died

<p>For once, we are going to radically change country and musical style, out of my usual habit and path I give up Finnish bands in order to visit Germany with a new one, stamped melodic death metal, which is called Decaptacon. This sextet with the particularity of carrying three guitars players gives us a second LP, five years after their last opus...

Einvigi - Yö Kulje Kanssani

<p>For once, I am going to review a post black metal and rock album or from another style? In fact we get lost in the musical classification as the influences take you to folk, black, psychedelic and rock. Only one thing remains certain is that we are staying in the land of the 1000 lakes or Finland for the uninitiated.&nbsp;</p><p>Einvigi, since i...

Hagalas - As A Unit

<p>Yes oh yes I am back to do the review, of a Finnish band achievement, the old habits still survive and die hard! So, Finland! A band: Hagalas. The style: melodic death metal. An EP: "As A Unit" the second of their career. There is no doubt about the factory, the mold of this style is alive and produces bands of excellent craftsmanship which woul...

Destinity - In Continuum

Destinity, did you say Destinity? Yes, I remember the band, and for once it is not Scandinavian even if its melodic death metal style would stick very well to Nordic productions! The band is reborn from its ashes and thanks to the enthusiasm it arouses, despite its years of silence since "Resolve In Crimson" in 2012, comes back to us with a new LP...

Runespell - Verses In Regicide

Today we are back in Australia in order to give you some details about the next LP from the band Runespell which is entitled "Verses In Regicide". As usual the sound is rotten, to believe that the more the sound is rotten the more it gives you a certificate of authenticity, it is a disease which is enormously current in the musical discipline of...

Shadecrown - Solitarian

It is done I decided to spend part of the year in Finland, the country not only that of 1000 lakes but also of 1000 metal bands and as you will understand your humble servant will review an LP of a... Finnish band! Surprising, is not it? There are so many talented bands over there that you could get lost! However, I am starting to find my way ar...

Callidice – Shades Among Us

Well, yes I am again in Finland, I will end up going to live there as my boss makes me review bands from the land of a thousand lakes! Yes yes it is also the name which one gives to this small country, large not by its number of inhabitants but by the quantity of talented bands which reside there! If France can boast of being the world champion in...

Korpituli - The Ancient Spells Of The Past

Black metal! I deeply believe that it is necessary to come from countries where vast territories can seem inhospitable, this particular music style which moves the depths of the soul often releases a lot of melancholy, it speaks to our so often tortured souls. This is how Scandinavia produces us as always the best jewels of the style (sorry for the...

Vaelmyst - Secrypts Of The Egochasm

For this review, we are going to give up our continent and return to the new world in order to find some nuggets. It is always surprising and interesting to see that a North American band, in this case Vaelmyst, can sound like an European one. And yes and this is perhaps our main flaw in old Europe in this very particular style of death metal and m...

Netherbird - Arete

Waoh this album is a blast! So yes, Netherbird is not the most famous Swedish band, not the one that makes the front pages of the magazines, not the one that all the young death metal guys talk about but nevertheless the band, based in Stockholm, is slowly approaching its 20 years of existence and already has 5 LP to his credit. "Arete" is their 6t...

Sieta - Novgorod

Well what do we have here? Straight from the Slavic countries a folk metal album by the Russian band Sieta called "Novgorod", this LP will be available in June. I am always so surprised when I listen to folk tinged with black metal, it has so much strength that emanates from this musical style that one always finds happiness there at one time or a...

Navalm - Cursed Land

Three years after the release of "Beyond The Reality", Navalm is back in force with its eighth album "Cursed Land". So if this seems obvious to me, and that I appreciate the band, I totally can understand the disappointment of possible fans due to the band's lack of visibility : not present on social networks, no appearances on Western stages, very...
