STELLAR TOMB Shadowtheater

As observing the southern Serbia metal scene for a very long time, I could see that therewere a lot of rises and falls on the same scene. Mostly, in the city of Nis, were bandsthat are influenced by the most iconic bands, such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Slayer,Pantera, and so on. Aside from not…

NUMENOR Draconian Age (Elevate Records)

Nemtheanga of Primordial in their ranks (besides vocals, here also playing bass) but I feel that this entity can stand on its two legs aside from lazy Primordial comparison. Truth be told, besides Alan’s vocals there are no…
