Blutengel – Nemesis (Out of Line)

  Van Muylem    27 januari 2016

I loved the sound on their previous album (Omen) and now they decided to rework older hits in the studio and get us an up-dated sound. So If you loved it, you can’t miss this best of! It’s true that they could have simply launched a best of without any effort, but this is simply provi...

Pankow - Throw Out Rite (Artoffact Records)

  Van Muylem    19 januari 2016

I remember that one of my friends (Peter Dolphen) is a big fan and saw them on stage in 2014, he is the one responsible for my interest in them. For those who missed them: it’s an Italian EBM band and they recently reissued their cassette from 1983 (on vinyl, CD and in digital form).

The Devil and The Universe – Benedicere (Rustblade)

  Van Muylem    10 januari 2016

Since Ashley Dayour (also know from Whispers in The Shadow) started with this project its seems to grow after each EP and each CD. I see more and more positive vibes around this occult project. Evil, mystic, occult … these descriptions fit, so watch out!

Prong – X-No Absolutes (Steamhammer/SPV)

  Van Muylem    8 januari 2016

I absolutely loved Ruining Lives(2014) And at Snoozecontrol.be their next album was very much appreciated by Tom Kielemoes (the cover album The Black Hole), time to check if Tommy Victor and his mates still steal my heart with every released track!

Kamelot – Haven (Napalm Records)

  Van Muylem    2 januari 2016

Due to a lack of time I overlooked this beauty and now I can finally talk about the must see for 2016! Indeed: Kamelot has a new album and will tour a lot during 2016! I can already tell you that their new album is absolutely worth it!

Amaranthe – Breaking point B-sides 2011/2015 (Spinefarm/Universal)

  Van Muylem    2 januari 2016

Over the years Amaranthe gathered a lot of B-Sides and added bonus tracks to certain regions, making it hard for some to get them and now they decided to release them all in one. Yes, finally the time has come to discover the rarities and prove to some that they have a lot of potential!

Ewert and The Two Dragons – Circles (Sire Records)

  Van Muylem    1 januari 2016

Their previous record was released with the help of the I Love You Records and now they signed Sire Records A Warner Music Group Company! Isn’t that a gigantic step for an Estonian band? Do I have to remind you that Estonia has only a population of 1.3 million people?
