Dirkschneider - Denver, USA - 16 Jan 2017
by D.T. Metal | 23.01
"Dirkschneider: Back To The Roots - Farewell To Accept" says it all. Udo Dirkschneider hasn't been a part of the German heavy metal titans Accept for eons now, and since his solo band U.D.O. has a rather extensive discography on its own, he decided it was time to finally close this chapter of his musical career.

High In Heaven, Stoned In Hell: Exploring The Meads Of Asphodel
by Apothecary | 03.01
If you make a list of some of the most ardent rule breakers and innovators within the international metal community, you damn well better have The Meads Of Asphodel on that list. The band is an enigma, and a highly tantalizing one at that. Black metal, folk, neolassical, electronica, punk, or whatever else they feel like, and wrapped in interesting themes of Biblical and Jewish history, the time has come for an in depth exposé of this curious group.

ROSK - Miasma

Bandcamp music player
Miasma, the debut full-length from the Warsaw-based sextet ROSK is a prime example of post-black metal done right. We get a decent dose of emotions with excellent centering between clean & harsh vocals. Of course, there is no lack of heavier parts and tremolo picking guitars. Everybody will find something to enjoy. This is just another proof that Polish metal is currently at the top.
