A couple weeks ago Lacuna Coil played in Denver, CO as part of the Revolver - Hottest Chicks In Hard Rock Tour, but since they announced a gig mere 15 minutes from my house, I opted to skip the drive up to the Mile High city and catch them locally instead. (by D.T. Metal)   Read more ››

The 5th edition of the 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise already promises to be even bigger and better than anything else the organizers have done before. And even though I barely got rid of my sea legs, it's time to get stoked for next year's cruise. Stoked why, you might ask. Simple. Bigger ship, more bands, more people = more fun! (by D.T.

Enthring - The Grim Tales Of The Elder (2011)

Well I'll be damned. Independent bands can pull of orchestral without it sounding like crap. In fact, it's actually pretty difficult to believe Enthring did this without any bigger label backing them. The riffs are mature, the symphonic bits don't sound too obviously synthy (most of the time), and the overall song writing just sounds like a band that's been around longer than 5 years.
