Winterage – The Harmonic Passage

Heavily influenced by orchestral and classical symphonic music such as Beethoven , Bach and Vivaldi to Nightwish, Fairyland, Haggard, Elvenking and many more metal acts, Italian sextet Winterage recently released their debut full-length album titled, The Harmonic Passage.

Band of the Week: Valor

I’m not typically a big fan of “teaser” videos, but this little snippet below from the new Valor limited release was enough to name them band of the week. Take a listen: Valor formed in 2002 and classified themselves as power metal. Fans quickly spoke up and added EPIC to that classification.
