Gwydion - Going On Indefinite Hiatus 02.10

It's a sad day for Gwydion fans. The Portuguese folk metallers have decided to "take an indefinite leave of absence." Their last album Veteran, which was nominated for Best Folk / Pagan / Viking Metal Album on Metal Storm Awards 2013, could well be their swansong. The band started back in 1995 and released three albums in total. They could disband in the future but for now, it's just a break. (by Dominus)   Read more ››
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 ››

Are you feeling lonely? Are you feeling that life has lost its meaning? Are you feeling that happiness will never lay its smooth wings on you again, ever? Are you feeling that, ever since Anorexia Nervosa has been on hiatus, you have been down in the dumps and that nothing can take you out of the rut? Well, mourn no more! Scars Of Chaos has arrived! Indeed, the first thing that comes to mind when listening to Humanitarian War Machine is that this really sounds a lot like Anorexia Nervosa. Although... (by Collin)   Read more ››
