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 ››

Ihsahn - Das Seelenbrechen (2013)

At this point into his career, I think it's pretty fair to say that Ihsahn has developed a very "love it or hate it" type of vibe with his solo work. Either you love the man's introspective mind and the creative twists and turns he takes his music on (*raises hand*), or you think that this "extreme progressive" shit is all just a bunch of superfluous fluff, and he needs to get over himself and get back to some As The Shadows Rise-esque material. While Ihsahn's first... (by Apothecary)   Read more ››

Son Of Aurelius

The band's first album was leaked a few months before the official release, and was uploaded to some music sharing sites with fake album titles (like Myocardial Infarction, Son Of Aurelius). The same thing happened when they released their first demo songs through Myspace. Someone recorded and shared them as an EP. Although these things caused some misinformation, it helped the band to get more known.
