Arsis, Exmortus - Moon Room, Denver, USA - 23 Sep 2014 27.09

I haven't been to a show in what felt like forever, and going to the much smaller Moon Room (which is just the bar area of the Summit Music Hall) seemed a nice way to ease myself back into the swing of things. Ease yah right. My ass got kicked that night; my 'musical ass' that is. (by D.T. Metal)   Read more ››

Progventure Part 9: Green Carnation - Another Night Under The Dam, Åseral, Norway, 31.07.2014 01.09

It seems that my Progventure prog searching trips are not only a convenient excuse to travel new places, or more often the only way of seeing bands I like I wouldn't otherwise get to see, but in some cases they are turning out to be events of a fairly unique kind. Another Night Under the Dam - the Green Carnation reunion show at the Åseral dam number 3 in Norway was unique in more ways than one. And it most definitely was special. (by Ivor)   Read more ››

Lantlôs - Melting Sun (2014)

Another semi-quasi-black metal band has taken all the "black" out of their music in favor of a relatively fresh and trendy, dare I say, "hipster" sound. Markus Siegenhort, aka Herbst, has fancied his band Lantlôs to contemporary and utopian heights. Provocative and emotive, Lantlôs show every sign of picking up the pieces after their surprising but drama-free divorce from Neige. Wanting to move on, there is no post-Neige hangover here, thank you very much. (by tea[m]ster)   Read more ››
