Agoraphobic Nosebleed - Release First Of Four EPs 30.11

Announced back in early 2013, the grinding instigators of Agoraphobic Nosebleed have announced the first of four EP releases. Simply titled Arc - led by the howling and shrieking Katherine Katz, the 25+ minute sludge-fueled feast is Agoraphobic Nosebleed sounding heavier, doomier and more destructive than ever before in a crushing, three song onslaught of misanthropic, musical violence, due out January 22nd next year through Relapse Records.

Moonspell - Tapper, Tallinn, Estonia, 03.11.2015 23.11

This is a concert I've been waiting for a long time to happen. The last time Moonspell were here was a bit over nine years ago. That's a very, very long while for an active band and three albums have happened in the meantime. For various reasons it's also over six years since I last saw the band, so naturally the interest was piqued. (by Ivor)   Read more ››
Progventure Parts 11&12: 2 x (Iamthemorning + Gazpacho), The Netherlands, 30-31.10.2015 16.11

I wanted to go to Oslo. Even if I had not made any actual travelling arrangements yet, I had my mind all made up on catching the last date of the Gazpacho tour with Iamthemorning supporting. With the date falling on Friday in mid-November, all seemed perfect and good to go - except what I really wanted was to see Iamthemorning play live and Oslo was the only date of the tour they were not present. Thus, a new plan had to be forged with The Netherlands coming to the rescue. (by Ivor)   Read more ››
Joe Satriani - Rock Café, Tallinn, Estonia, 19.10.2015 28.10

For many, Joe Satriani is an idol to look up to, a teacher to learn from, and an example to follow. The hands of this guitar god are so nimble that you wouldn't believe it unless you saw him play. His influence in guitar music is unquestionable whether you like his music or not. You have to see him play at least once in your life. So, when this man is in town, you really should go out to a show. (by Ivor)   Read more ››

Alkonost - Stone Heart Blood (2007)

Like "Pesni Vechnogo Dreva", "Stone Heart Blood" is composed of re-recorded old songs like new songs of Alkonost discography. One more time the Russian combo is back with a lovely album of dark Folk Metal mixed with Doom and Pagan music. I don't know how they do that but every time that this combo release an album, the track list is full of beautiful songs composed of amazing touching melodies. If you still don't know Alkonost "Stone Heart Blood" is highly... (by Jeff)   Read more ››
