Trepalium - Voodoo Moonshine
Swing Death Metal

Supersexy Swingin' Sounds? Hell yeah!

Trepalium have been searching since XIII for the perfect mix between the aggression in death metal and the swing and catchiness in jazz. Well, they nailed it perfectly with that awesome EP!

Check Moonshine Limbo's video if you haven't already!

Amorphis - Rock Café, Tallinn, Estonia, 09.10.2014 25.10

Amorphis seem to swing by Estonia regularly enough in recent times that I'm slowly starting to lose count of how many times I've seen them play. With a little jog down memory lane, I've come to the conclusion that this concert was the 5th for me, and my 4th in Estonia. However, since Amorphis have put on a good show every time so far, I saw no real reason to skip. If nothing else, it would've made for a fine evening out, despite the lecture at 8 the following morning. (by Ivor)   Read more ››

Iron Fire - Revenge (2006)

During 2006 there was a strong comeback from one of Denmark's finest heavy/power metal acts, Iron Fire! Almost 5 years passed since their previous attempt, "On The Edge", and the band had to face many problems, but Martin Steene never gave up to the cyclon of all the bad circumstances, he tried and tried and, hopefully for us all, the band returned with its third official full-length, "Revenge", and this is actually what this album is, a revenge against all those who tried...
