Publications

This is the original (and always exclusive) content submitted by Staff members, as well as regular users. The most important here are albums reviews, over 7500 now. Interviews and Song by songs offer the insight into artists' thoughts and clarify the ideas behind their music. On the other hand, Articles and Concert reviews provide the look at the metal scene from the fans' perspective. Photo galleries feature thousands of exclusive concert photos, and Funny stuff is... well, just some funny stuff.

Hahahaha, yes - Avantasia were amazing!!!
Iron Maiden too and Axxis were just simply amazing in the festival environment too. Exodus and The Rotted also highlights.
All in all another huge success! Full report coming soon!

As you probably already saw I met Promo and well I shared camp with my good friend SomethingOfFire.

Highlights for me was Avantasia, Leaves' Eyes and Sabaton. The Exodus show was pretty good as well along with Van Canto who surprised me the good way

@Promo: no worries mate...any time
