Anathema – The Optimist (K-Skope Music)

  Van Muylem    19 juni 2017

I saw them for the first time on stage at Graspop Metal Meeting and bought their album of the moment Judgement as soon as possible. Until now this album has been their best album ever, closely followed by Weather Systems. Last weekend I saw them again on stage at Graspop. Just as they told the cr...

Lovelorn Dolls – Lament EP (Alfa Matrix)

  Van Muylem    11 juni 2017

Kristell has been working recently on her solo project, but somehow felt the urge to return to her band: in full force! Brussels-based act Lovelorn Dolls rise from their ashes again like a phoenix and offer us a first and pretty noir appetizer to their forthcoming third album… Lament is pr...

Alestorm – No Grave But The Sea (Napalm Records)

  Van Muylem    7 juni 2017

I always loved this Scottish band as it was always fun and with No Grave But The Sea (their 5th album) we get a brand new best off filled with great pirate folk metal tracks! Oh, ho: not really a best off, but that’s how I feel it!

Mildreda – Cowards EP(alfa matrix)

  Van Muylem    1 juni 2017

I know this one since the 90’s. I was even the first one to get an interview with Jan Dewulf, back then a young & angry man with long and beautiful blond hair. Today most people know him from his remixes and from his other band Diskonnekted. Today he’s back with his first love: ha...

An Pierlé – Cluster (Consouling)

  Van Muylem    27 mei 2017

An Pierlé launches a new album and worked on the path she started with Arches (working it out with a modern organ as lead instrument throughout the whole album). I saw her this week on stage in the Church of Laken and totally enjoyed the sound and the performance, time for a review and thu...

Altered Sky – Without Wonderland

  Van Muylem    23 mei 2017

I noticed this band thanks to Facebook, whilst making promotion for their new album and got caught in their sound. I must say I was a fan from the early years on of Avril Lavigne and somehow this band reminded me of her, so I couldn’t resist to it and asked If I could review their brand new...

Chemical Sweet Kid – Addicted to Addiction (Dark Tunes)

  Van Muylem    23 mei 2017

Chemical Sweet Kid is a French band that started up in 2008 and describe themselves as: If Christian Death and Marilyn Manson had an electro project together, it would probably sounds like Chemical Sweet Kid. Well, I hear some other influences in it and despite the fact that many bands want to so...

Seven Kingdoms – Decennium (Napalm Records)

  Van Muylem    17 mei 2017

Seven Kingsdoms was formed in Deland, FL in 2007. The band began to play shows, went through all the usual "underground band" ups-and-down; members came and went; numerous local shows; an independently released debut album; etc. Finally, once they had a more solidified lineup, the band ...

Kobra and the Lotus – Prevail I (Napalm Records)

  Van Muylem    13 mei 2017

I heard so many good things about this female fronted Canadian metal band that I’m so happy that I can finally write my first review about them!
