Cellar Darling – The Spell (Nuclear Blast)

Blah Blah ex-Eluveitie Blah Blah Blah. Right, that’s that out of the way, no need to mention that again – Cellar Darling are 100% their own entity with a style of their own that has no particular resemblance to their… Continue Reading →

MaYan – Dhyana (Nuclear Blast)

MaYan are back and still have the symphonic mastermind of Mark Jansen at the helm, although this time he has mixed things up and thrown in the absolute juggernaut that is The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. Dhyana is the… Continue Reading →

Ayreon Universe – Best Of Ayreon – Live (Mascot)

If someone as musically innovative and fan-friendly as Arjen Lucassen is approached to release a ‘Best Of’, it’s pretty fair bet he will find a way to do it differently, in a way that treats his fans to something new…. Continue Reading →

Profane Burial – The Rosewater Park Legend (Apathia Records)

Towards the end of 2015 I waxed lyrical about Images at Twilight’s debut album, and to this day I still re-visit this epic masterpiece. I was therefore interested to hear that the Images at Twilight mastermind Andre Aaslie is involved… Continue Reading →

Vuur – In This Moment We Are Free – Cities (Inside Out)

Anneke Van Giersbergen is a household name across the globe for any self-respecting metal head who leans towards the more symphonic brand of the metal world, and Anneke is back. This time she is flanked by some of the most… Continue Reading →

Cellar Darling – This Is The Sound (Nuclear Blast)

Stream Of Passion, Pythia – London Underworld 13/10/16

And here it is, the final curtain. The news that Stream Of Passion were calling it a day came as a big and not very pleasant surprise. They want to move on and explore other musical endeavours apparently and lead… Continue Reading →

Koen Herfst – Back To Balance (Not To Do Records)

A solo album by Dew Scented’s drummer Koen Herfst – a solo album by a Metal Drummer! Yes indeed – Prepare yourselves readers for a review full of Flams and Paradiddles (or indeed standard Diddles!). We can analyse Rim Shots,… Continue Reading →

Birdeatsbaby, Gabby Young & Death In Texas – London Black Heart 18/6/15

It’s very colourful walking into The Black Heart this evening with a display of trippy feathered jewellery, masks and old photos on display at the side of the room. It’s still fairly thin on the ground but things have a… Continue Reading →

The Gentle Storm & Stream Of Passion – London Garage 23/4/15

I did rather swear when this gig was announced as I realised it was the same night as Prong in London. Well you can’t be in two places at once and it was really no contest as I had never… Continue Reading →
