Cemican – In Ohtli Teoyohtica In Miquiztli (M Theory Audio)

Ancient civilisations such as Mayans and Incas are fertile breeding ground for bands to explore and do something a bit different musically incorporating both traditional sounding elements and narrative into their music. Unsurprisingly there are no shortage of Aztecs either… Continue Reading →

Equilibrium – Renegades (Nuclear Blast)

Equilibrium are on their own musical journey – an epic one obviously, but it’s one that is increasingly keen to defy musical tags and labels. It seemed to start with 2016’s “Armageddon”, which saw them nudging slightly away from their… Continue Reading →

Leaves’ Eyes – King Of Kings (AFM)

Anyone who follows Ave Noctum’s reviews and those who know me know that I am a long life stalker, I mean fan, of all the work Liv Kristine has been involved in for over 20 years. I stand by the… Continue Reading →

Czech Metal Fest – Plzen, Amfitéatr Lochotin 6th June 2015

Day 2 Underestimating the time taken to get to the amphitheatre arena meant only catching Czech band Stroy’s last song though we could hear them whilst walking down the hill to the festival in baking sunshine. Distinctly modern in flavour… Continue Reading →
