Netherbird – Into the Vast Uncharted (Eisenwald)

If you scratch away at the surface of any music genre, you will always uncover hidden gems that are arguably as good as the “A-Listers”, and in some cases can even surpass them. There are many factors that play a part in… Continue Reading →

Wormwood – Nattarvet (Black Lodge)
