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)

  Van Muylem    29 mei 2016

Varjudemaa (The Land of Shadows) is an instrumental album by the Estonian music artist Mauno Meesit. On this second album Meesit continues with the minimalist acoustic explorations that began on his previous album Closer Also reviewed on our website- http://www.snoozecontrol.be/english/4599/, but...

Essence Of Mind - After the break up EP (Alfa Matrix)

  Van Muylem    26 mei 2016

At the release of last year’s The Break Up! album, Erlend Eilertsen had promised us some new adventures! The new EP After The Break Up marks both the end of an era, and a brand new start for Essence Of Mind who are embracing the present and future with full energy and renewed dynamic scores...

Honeymoon Cowboys – Still! (Track & Traces/Starman Records)

  Van Muylem    9 mei 2016

It’s their debut album, but it’s not like they are newbies. To start with the singer: Tom Van Troyen (Spiral of Silence), I follow this guy for over years! In the past he sounded more like Joy Division and was already back than backed up by Antonio Palermo on guitar. You know Antonio ...

Mildreda - Coward Philosophy (Alfa Matrix)

  Van Muylem    8 mei 2016

As a 16 year old kid, Jan Dewulf started making electronic music in the early 90's. Named after a Flemish saint, Mildreda was a dark electro project following the Belgian tradition of bands like The Klinik. When I saw him for the first time on stage I got hooked to the sound and the performan...
