Metal Storm Awards - Voting Closed 01.03

Last year we celebrated the 10th edition of the Metal Storm Awards, and earlier this year we observed the Awards' 10th anniversary with its own special competition. Now, finally, the 2014 Awards have come to a close. Countless bands and users alike have come and gone in those years, but the spirit of the Awards has remained the same; as we like to say, it's not about who wins and loses, but about discovering new bands. While this year's Awards had a smaller voter turnout than the previous couple, 2014 still had its fair share of friendly competition. (by BitterCOld)   Read more ››

Amaranthe - Tapper, Tallinn, Estonia, 10.02.2015 21.02

I am usually genuinely surprised when some bands come to revisit my little country in a fairly short while, say a couple of years. For them to be back in just half a year is a pretty significant achievement, especially for something as popular as Amaranthe. Well, the new album has been released between then and now, and maybe not everybody could make it to the show in Haapsalu. Given the warm reception there, it is fairly logical for the band to take to the stage here in such a short while. (by Ivor)   Read more ››

Cannibal Corpse + Behemoth + Aeon - The Fillmore, San Francisco, USA - 8 February 2015 17.02

Back at The Fillmore - this time 8bitglitch and I were hunkered down for some death metal. Cannibal Corpse and Behemoth play with Aeon and Tribulation. I haven't had the occasion to see many bands more than once so two repeats tonight was a real treat, having seen Aeon and Cannibal Corpse at Summer Slaughters 2013 and 2012, respectively. The strange doppelganger of my ex was in the crowd as usual, so we were ready to begin! (by Susan, 8bitglitch)   Read more ››

Harmony - Chapter II: Aftermath (2008)

Last month I wrote the review of the EP "End Of My Road" which was like a promotional foretaste of the second album of Harmony: "Chapter II: Aftermath". Today of course we will talk about this new album and luckily (even if the EP was all but bad of course!) we have a lot of better songs here and I can tell you that one more time Henrik Båth and his band mates will touch your musical spirit. Between Prog and Power this release is a really good catchy album and I'm sure... (by Jeff)   Read more ››
