Blutengel – A special night out: live & acoustic in Berlin (Out of Line)

  Van Muylem    29 november 2017

We are getting spoiled: a best of, reworked songs (making them better than the originals) and now a live and acoustic album with their best tracks ever: stripped to the bone: naked and pure! Our gothic vampire friends deliver whatever they can to please their followers and we do love them for that!

The Unguided – And The Battle Royal (Napalm Records)

  Van Muylem    2 november 2017

We are all aware of the changes that has come with their new singer, but it has become clear that they stayed true to their own values and direction. Their newest record just continues the story/feel of the previous album and lots of fans will be very pleased with that!

  Van Muylem    2 november 2017

Once again a friend surprised me, this time I get a taste of a female voice Heavy Horror Electro Metal band from Japan. The monsters around her look pretty cool and as I have been listening already a few times to the album I can say it’s worth spending my valuable time!

Epica – The Solace System EP (Nuclear Blast)

  Van Muylem    14 oktober 2017

As we can’t wait to see them on stage in Leuven and in Antwerp we decided to review the EP and use it to get into the right mood. We also believe that this female fronted symphonic metal band doesn’t need an introduction.

  Van Muylem    27 oktober 2017

Belgium has talented people and today we talk about a nice female fronted project with rock/metal roots but facing us with a more electronic and fragile side of her talents.
