Lacrimas Profundere - Hope Is Here (Oblivion / SPV)

  Van Muylem    11 juli 2016

Lacrimas Profundere is a Gothic Rock band that already toured over 29 countries, sold more than 100,000 records and played not just Berlin and Moscow, but also have Tokyo and Beijing under their belt. And yet this is my first time as a reviewer and sadly I missed their gigs so far too … Ho...

Heimataerde - Hick Hack Hackebeil (Out Of Line Music)

  Van Muylem    6 juli 2016

The undead templars of Heimataerde return with a catchy mix of Electro, medieval music and Neue Deutsche Härte on their new single Hick Hack Hackebeil - a smashing harbinger for the epic new album Aerdenbrand.

Saltatio Mortis - Licht & Schatten! Best of 2000-2014 (Napalm Records)

  Van Muylem    4 juli 2016

I saw Saltatio Mortis years ago as headliner during the great festival in Mons called Trolls et Légendes. A leg injury of the singer (Alea der Bescheidene) almost called in a cancellation, but even with this injury we got the most energetic gig of the festival! It was simply unbelievable h...

Nervosa -Agony (Napalm Records)

  Van Muylem    20 juni 2016

I know Nervosa since they launched their debut albumVictim of Yourself in 2014 and absolutely adored them! They gave me the perfect female fronted - and technically worth a master degree - Thrash metal! Today they offer us their second album!

Ruins of Elysium – Daphne (FULL EP + Bonus Track)

  Van Muylem    23 juni 2016

It’s always nice to see that some bands notice our website by the bias of our reviews. This one contacted me after reading a review about Evig Natt last album. I could have said no, but I’m always eager to go where I have never before been too … Be ready for some Opera symphoni...

SIR REG - Modern Day Disgrace (Gain Music/ Sony Music)

  Van Muylem    9 juni 2016

Sir Reg is an energetic six piece from Sweden playing Celtic punk. To be honest: I have never heard of them, but once I started listening to the new album I was pretty fast amused and attracted! So here we go, folks!

Lithos Sarcophagos – III

  Van Muylem    11 juni 2016

I reviewed this band (ages ago and aheum : band is not really the right word for this Swedish solo project), it was pretty cool to get the message that I could review the new EP. I have never seen this band on stage and regret it. They bring old school gothic metal. Daniel Dante did recording, mi...

Amon Amarth – Jomsviking (Metal Blade Records/Sony Music)

  Van Muylem    29 mei 2016

I must admit it’s the first time I review Amon Amarth and I know that they are for years working around the viking theme. I can say that these Swedish folks got me hooked from the first notes! The artwork is a real eye catcher and as you all know: a good eye catcher is the perfect start!

Mauno Meesit - Varjudemaa (Grainy Records)
