STORMRULER Under the Burning Eclipse

Stormruler is a newcomer on the scene but yet the band has already signed a deal with Napalm Records. These two guys are coming from US and definitely one could sense in their style that they’re not European band, especially that they don’t come from eastern Europe. One thing is for sure they are one…

IOTUNN WAVES BELOW THE WORLDS

Danish band Iotunn will for sure be one of the most remarkable newcomers in 2021 with their debut album Access All Worlds for Metal Blade.

THE CROWN DEATHRASH DESTROYER LEGION

THE CROWN Royal Destroyer Metal Blade

Swedish destroyers The Crown have reached the album number 10 in Royal Destroyer which is no small feat, considering the band’s rough past but they have soldiered on mercilessly and here we are. They have never been the biggest band from Sweden, not riding any wave of popularity but they have always enjoyed cult status…

Now I am writing about my fellow mates from the same label and I have to say that I am really proud to be on the same label as Embrace of Souls. The band is a new one and a new singer of Rhapsody of Fire is the leading vocalist in the band but moreover…
