Regardless of the reasons, it was a pleasure to see them hit the stage in Tallinn as part of the Tallinn Music Week festival. (by Ivor)   Read more ››

Merging progressive metal and progressive rock is an ambitious task and a tenuous ground on which to make first impressions. Usually this endeavour results in, at the very least, some creative ideas which haven't been touched upon within either of these genres. With their debut effort Tungsten from Philadelphia find themselves positioning their music on this convergence point between rock and metal with unusual results. (by R'Vannith)   Read more ››
