This is already the second live album by Firewind. In 2008 they released their first one ‘Premonition’.  Since they’ve released two additional studio albums and thought the time was ripe to release another live album.  This is also the last material they are releasing with their former vocalist Apollo, who left the band after seven fruitful years.


To those music lovers at home in the world of Progressive Death Metal, the Swede Dan Swanö will be somewhat of a legend, known in the first place from his fronting role as lead singer/ bassist in the bands/ projects Edge Of Sanity, Nightingale (where he was the drummer), and Bloodbath (where he handles both drums and guitar.


Boy Oh Boy, what a mistake I’ve made.  I should have listened to this album much earlier, because it’s damn good.  Mind you, it’s not on par with what must be Queensrÿche’s most successful and most influential album up to now, that is of course ‘Operation Mindcrime’, but it almost  reaches the same celestial heights. 


This band started out in Gothenburg by Feffe and Matte in late 2008 as a two piece who wrote a few songs together that were influenced by some of their favorite bands like: The Melvins, Black Sabbath, The Jesus Lizard and Poison Idea.

High On Fire

This live performance is displaying a tight High on Fire in the year 2012 at the Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg in New York.. We get 15 tracks in your face without any long breaks or long stories told to the audience.

Orphaned Land

Israel's breakthrough band Orphaned Land  (also known as” the pioneers of Oriental metal”), have returned with their latest record entitled ”All Is One” witch contains a certain message for everyone to embrace: "People should be judged by their hearts and inner sincerity, not their religious beliefs."


After years of internal struggle and rather poor releases, front man Geoff Tate finally parted ways with the rest of the band resulting currently in two different versions of Queensrÿche. To be clear, this self-titled release is the one with new vocalist Todd La Torre who joined forces with original members Michael Wilton, Eddie Jackson and Scott Rockenfield.

Iced Earth

Since John Schaffer recruited Stu Block (Into Eternity) on vocals, it seems the career of Iced Earth  has been relaunched.  Since the release of ‘Dystopia’ in 2011 they’ve toured over the world and played countless gigs.


Since this band’s birth ten years ago, TesseracT created a very specific, own-faced vision on the progressive side of Metal Music. Personally I am not that much ‘into’ this kind of sonics, but when it comes to this band specifically, I cannot but express a modest form of appreciation.
