Ihsahn - Arktis.

As the solo career of Ihsahn progressed, it seemed as though this versatile multi-instrumentalist was gradually pushing his work more and more towards bolder, unexpected territories. It was a trend that arguably started with After, and that came to a peak with Das Seelenbrechen, an ambitious voyage into dark lands of the surreal and borderline Avantgarde. As a bit of a disappointment, Arktis now comes this year from a much more accessible direction, feeling like something of a ball drop after all that progress.

Coven 13

The Coven 13 story began on a cold dreary day in Detroit back in the late winter months of early 1985. Bassist Roger Cyrkiel had returned from Hollywood, CA. after his departure from Trial (Kory Klarke & Kevin Quinn). Searching for a new band, he first sought a guitarist that could fit the sound that would match what he was looking for. After many auditions and discussions, longtime friend and guitarist, Richie Karacynski, (whom Roger originally wanted to fill the position) was busy with his own band, had recommended guitarist Todd Kreda for the slot. Roger placed an ad in Detroit's Metro Times musicians classified seeking Todd. Todd's father read the ad and brought it to his attention. Todd contacted Roger, and that was the beginning of the formation.

Death Angel - The Evil Divide

Too many people out there treat Death Angel as a "really good" thrash band; not enough regard this legend as a truly great thrash band. These guys must have a serious geis on releasing subpar albums.
