One of the worlds longest running Gothic metal acts, German quintet, Crematory, have recently released their latest album, titled, Antiserum. This is the band’s twelfth album and is the follow up to 2010’s Infinity.
You can now consider Toronto, Canada a place of epic journey through snow sheeted peaks as it serves as the home for Primalfrost. The epic melodic death metal band is in fact a one-man project. The mastermind behind it, Dean Paul Arnold, takes influence from bands such as Ensiferum, Immortal and Moonsorrow.
We talk a lot about metal with variations of sub genres and styles. For instance we will say something like, “band “A” has a NWOBHM sound with thrash elements that are tied together with neo classical guitar riffs.
Battle themed metal has evolved extensively throughout the history of the genre from its traditional pagan Viking metal roots to slaying dragons, pirates and more. Samurai metal can now be added to your metal vocabulary with Finland’s Whispered.
Finland is becoming more and more well known as the epicenter of Heavy Metal, if it’s not already. It doesn’t matter the genre – Folk, Power, Thrash, Death, Progressive – this Nordic land of ice and snow generates a lot of Metal, but even more importantly it tends to be of the highest quality.
If you have some time on your hands, I have an album for you. “Descend Into Despair” have created a funeral march for the modern ages with track after track of sludgy, mournful, and psychological metal.
Boy oh boy do we have a treat for you all. I am very stoked, for today we have one of the albums I was looking forward to as well as one of the giants in the blackened death metal scene. Blackened death metal giants, Behemoth have released their newest album, The Satanist.
Gothenburg’s own, The Haunted, today drop their first recording since 2011’s Unseen with their three song EP/single on Century Media Records. The most significant thing about Eye of the Storm is that it marks the return of vocalist Marco Aro to the fold replacing Peter Dolving for the second time.
