Green Carnation: Special Show - Another Night Under The Dam

Norway, Åseral (The Dam)
31 July 2014

Green Carnation
Staff pick
Horn Of The Rhino - Summoning Deliverance
Sludge ice cream, with death metal sprinkles

These Spanish conquistadors are back in action. Continuing in the direction of Grengus, Summoning Deliverance is Horn Of The Rhino at perhaps their most violent yet. Gone are the days of the more relaxed vibes of their earlier material, in favor of some fast and nasty sludge, with a much more snarling type of vocal delivery from Javier Galvez, all wrapped up with some pleasantly surprising extreme metal elements. Crushing in every sense of the word.

Listen on Bandcamp, and cry to yourself over the label deciding that only streaming select tracks would be a good idea.

Eluveitie - Special New Album Stream Available 29.07

Eluveitie have announced a special online stream of their entire forthcoming album Origins, which has already started. The band will be uploading the album track by track starting with the first one. Once each track has received 1000 plays, it will unlock the next track and so on. The more fans share each track with their friends, the faster the album will be unlocked for all to hear in its entirety! So, that seems like a cool idea. The songs are currently streaming here and the first seven songs have been unlocked, as of now. Pretty soon, all of them will be available for you to enjoy. (by BloodTears)   Read more ››

Rockstar Mayhem Festival 2014 - Denver, CO - 13 Jul 2014 29.07

The annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival! Great variety of bands, I always have a blast, it's always fun, the weather is always way too hot and this year's event was almost no exception. Yes, almost no exception; the timing of the festival couldn't be worse and the decision to split the Colorado show into two events didn't help the cause neither. (by D.T. Metal)   Read more ››
 
Amaranthe - American Beauty Car Show, Haapsalu Episcopal Castle, Haapsalu, Estonia, 19.07.2014 28.07

Haapsalu is a small and beautiful Estonian resort town by the sea. Each July its quiet is disturbed by an invasion of owners and admirers of the American car industry. Shining cars, roaring engines, burning rubber, cruising, and a drag race on the airfield strip - American Beauty Car Show has got it all. If you're into all that, it's the place to be. Naturally, this also calls for musical entertainment of varied sorts, which somehow managed to grab my attention for the first time with only one name - Amaranthe. Just because I happen to like them.
