On Tuesday, October 22nd,  I had a chance to speak with, who in my opinion, is both a wonderful musician and a black metal icon. Ihsahn started Emperor in 1990, and took black metal to a whole other realm.

WLM Reviews: Touchstone – Oceans Of Time

I was introduced to a band I had never heard of, for I have heard of many, many rock, hard rock, and metal acts. UK Progressive Rockers/Metallers, Touchstone, have just released their latest album entitled, Oceans Of Time. Now, what would one think of with that title? Unique solos? Addicting tunes? Long songs?
