Paganizer – The Tower Of The Morbid (Transcending Obscurity)

I find it kind of funny that whilst Metal as a whole is the beating heart of the underground it is massively popular, I mean look at Wacken, Hellfest and to a lesser extent Download, these are hugely successful gatherings…. Continue Reading →
