Featured Video: Amaranthe – Drop Dead Cynical

One of my personal favorite groups I have been following intimately for the longest time now, since their debut probably, Swedish Sextet, Amaranthe, just released their first single yesterday, off of their upcoming third album titled, Massive Addictive. The album, scheduled for an October 21st release, should be their most addicting, and memorable album to date.

WLM Interviews: Herman Li and Sam Totman of DragonForce

It has been the biggest honor and tremendous opportunity to interview the Kings of Shred and Speed. Guitar masters, Herman Li and Sam Totman, among the rest of DragonForce, will be releasing their sixth album tomorrow, titled, Maximum Overload. The album, in my opinion is their most diverse, dynamic, up your arse, and majestically melodic album to date!

WLM Reviews: Unisonic – Light of Dawn

The running order can make all the difference in how much I do or don’t like an album.  I tend to look at albums as complete works rather than a conglomeration of songs haphazardly thrown together.  Unisonic’s Light of Dawn on earMusic records made me realize that rather clearly.
