Album Review: Green Carnation – Leaves Of Yesteryear 9.2 (Prog Metal)

In my adolescence, one band that introduced classy, prestigious metal to me, something to be both hooked on and impressed by and at the same time feel elated to be a fan of, was indeed Green Carnation. It was mid-to-late 2000s and I was steering away from Anathema, in whom I was kinda disappointed, that I stumbled upon this band, simply because I was looking for a band with a death/doom/gothic sound with poetic and touching lyrics. I gave Journey to the End of the Night a listen; I fell into darkness and the rest is my history. […]

Album review: Myth of I – Myth of I 8.5 (Prog/Tech Death)

I have to admit that I wasn’t a big fan of pure instrumental albums for a long time, but last year I stumbled over some great representatives of this genre and something clicked. MYTH OF I’s self-titled debut album is the newest and very impressive addition in this wide field for me. The four band members (two guitar players, bassist and drummer) come up with outstanding musical skills, and they deliver progressive (tech-death) metal at its finest. […]

NOVENA release new video for “Sail Away”

Two months ago, NOVENA released their incredible debut album “Eleventh Hour”, which has melted with my player since then. The mix of styles is mind-blowing, but everything is in a natural flow. There are countless musical and emotional turns, it’s beautiful, brutal and overwhelming at the same time. […]
