BORKNAGAR Winter Thrice

After four years of waiting Borknagar, Norwegian pagan metal horde, has unleashed their brand new offering, done, more or less, in the style of their previous record Urd. Perhaps the most interesting moment is that Garm has returned with the contribution in one song and this particular track, named after the album’s title, turned out…

PRIMAL FEAR Rulebreaker

Well, I have to honest here that I truly was expecting some more aggressive stuff, material much more done in the veins of their previous work like powerful release Delivering the Black, but never the less, their new record Rulebreaker is also a good written piece of work, but, yet not their best one. This…

IF THESE TREES COULD TALK The Bones of a Dying World

Even though Metal Blade is well known for being one of the oldest and most respected metal labels in the world, they like to throw curveball here and there at us to show that they are growing beyond their preconceived realms with their respectable roster. Good proof for these words would be their signing of…

MOONSORROW Jumalten Aika

Jumalten Aika is a brand new issue coming from Finland based masters of epic and dramatic sounds Moonsorrow. After five years of waiting band has finally released their brand new effort. And, yet it seems, that this one could be named as one of their best releases ever! I have to say that I was…

DARK SUNS Everchild

Five years after the critically acclaimed album Orange, German art rock collective Dark Suns are back with their fifth full length entitled Everchild which continues their road of musical exploration and in the same time shows the artistic vastness of Prophecy Productions. Dark Suns are without a doubt one of the most progressive bands on…

PATHFINDER Beyond the Space, Beyond the Time

Beyond the Space, Beyond the Time (2010) is the debut record released by Poland-based symphonic power metal Pathfinder. Their music and their style could be easily compared with Rhapsody of Fire since they have obvious symphonic and classical influences. Also, there are some other bands that we need to mentioned like Kamelot, Stratovarious and alike. Fans of more…

BLIND GUARDIAN Wheel of Time

Few years ago, even before there were any words and rumors about the new Blind Guardian’s album, I was wondering how Blind Guardian would sound with full orchestra and finally I got this answer. They sound majestic! Since we are speaking here about one, more or less, fantasy-based band the orchestrations are very welcomed. Of…

RHAPSODY OF FIRE On the Way to Ainor

I’m the big fan and follower of Rhapsody of Fire’s music since their debut full-length ‘’Legendary Tales’ from 1997. So, I indeed welcome their comeback! After 4 years of silence there are again back with one more fantastic and enchanted record. There’s no doubt that ‘’The Frozen Tears of Angels’’ will not reach the glory…

HELL Hell Prevails

One of the most exciting albums of 2011 came from the guys that were playing already back in the eighteis: the story of Hell is too much interesting to be shortened in any way so go straight to the chat we had with Kev Bower, guitar and keyboard player, who turned out to be one…

BLIND GUARDIAN At the Edge of Belgrade

Hansi Kürsch & co. have come to Belgrade (Serbia) with aim to film yet another video clip for the upcoming single ”A Voice in the Dark” so I’ve used this chance and make some interviews with the members of the band. In this particular interview, Hansi and me are discussing mainly the new single and…
