Roadburn 2018, Day 2
by Mr. Doctor, InnerSelf | 18.05
Hello again, fellow Metal Stormers! Slowly but steadily I continue with my memories of my 8th Roadburn experience with you! I hope that maybe, just maybe, this will motivate you to follow me and all the other Roadburners into one of the best music festivals Europe has to offer! And in case you attended this year, well... Feel free to agree/disagree with my ramblings!
Kamelot, Delain & Battle Beast - Ogden Theatre In Denver, CO - May 2018
by D.T. Metal | 15.05
Kamelot's month long trek across the United States (and a bit of Canada) came to an end this past weekend. With opener Battle Beast and direct support Delain in tow, they put together an awesome package. I had the opportunity to catch them all at their Denver stop and let me tell you: the tour just flat out rocked.

Hellfest: The best line-up since a long time?
by Darkside Momo | 27.04
Well, arguably that's debatable, but we sure have something better this than we had the last few year - and even if I went in 2014 and 2016, it has honestly been a while since I haven't been that excited by a Hellfest line-up.
70000 Tons Of Metal 2018 - Day Four: I Did It My Way !!!
by D.T. Metal, CROMCarl | 10.04
The last day was upon us and I did it my way; I took it easy and instead of trying to watch bands I had missed thus far, I instead opted to be a 'social butterfly' and catch up with friends.

Dew-Scented - Inwards

After 26 years and ten albums whose titles all start with the letter "i," Dew-Scented have decided to make the world a nicer, calmer, gentler, and overall suckier place by taking themselves out of it. This was one of the bands that first acclimatized me to harsh vocals and more extreme forms of metal, and what a band to start with; to this day, Inwards is one of my go-to albums whenever I need something that is loud, fast, brutal, angry, unsubtle, and wicked sick in equal measure. I hate to see them go, but we've still got in "Bitter Conflict" one of the finest metal songs ever written.
