Xandria, Metaprism, Aonia – Sheffield Local Authority 18/11/17

Xandria – Theater Of Dimensions (Napalm)

No easing our way into a new year with a nice easy run-of-the-mill Power Metal album then? Nope, not for me, I get to put into words the next chapter in a band’s career, who I’ve seen gradually over their last few releases morph from.. Read More

Diabulus In Musica – Dirge For The Archons (Napalm)

In Symphonic Metal circles it’s hard to find a more diverse and all encompassing band than Diabulus In Musica and this Spanish band look set to cram even more in with their 4th album sporting the come-and-buy-me title of “Dirge For The Archons”. Yep, nothing.. Read More

Deep Sun – Race Against Time (S/R)

It’s always nice to stumble across a new band, even more so when it’s a band of the quality of Deep Sun who somehow are unsigned and really do deserve a proper record deal. What we have here is high-end Symphonic Metal made all the.. Read More

It’s Xandria’s turn to release one of these extended EP type things that Napalm are so keen on as a fill-in between albums. We are treated to 3 new songs 2 re-recordings and a cover. There are actually TWO cover versions, but I personally can’t.. Read More

Xandria & Stream Of Passion – London Underworld 9/5/14

Due to a bit of a shifty on the running times I only caught a couple of numbers of first band Apparition. I have to admit that turned out to be a blessing in disguise. They were quite a soothing experience at first, nothing too.. Read More
Stream Of Passion – A War Of Our Own (SR)

Stream Of Passion – A War Of Our Own (SR)

Yes that is right, in one of the craziest bands not on a label situations I can think of in recent times this is indeed self-released. I had the pleasure of interviewing singer Marcela just after they parted ways with previous label Napalm and asked.. Read More
Visions Of Atlantis – Ethera (Napalm)

Visions Of Atlantis – Ethera (Napalm)
