Stunning live footage of Oathbreaker released

Stunning live footage of Oathbreaker released

Oathbreaker, one of my favourite bands, played a US tour a few weeks ago. Their show at La Puente, CA was filmed and shows the ferocity and intensity of the band.     Plus: one can find a bunch of really cool live pics on […]

Svårmod – Bli Mörk – new video online

Svårmod – Bli Mörk – new video online

The dude in Sunwolf released a video for his black metal project Svårmod, which reminds me of the visuals bands like Neurosis, Ulver, and Dark Tranquillity use on their live shows. One sees cut scenes from movies, featured in the style of old-fashioned television screens. […]

First video of My Project Ghost is really interesting

First video of My Project Ghost is really interesting

The Wacken Foundation, Controversial, and the state of the music industry

The Wacken Foundation, Controversial, and the state of the music industry

Controversial released a video for their track “Habitat” yesterday. It’s a nice one. Not exceptional, but good work and gives an idea of the band’s power. The interesting part, though, is the information that the Wacken Foundation helped to produce the video, which made me […]

Review: Sunwølf – Beholden to Nothing and No One

Review: Sunwølf – Beholden to Nothing and No One

The british duo Sunwølf released their third album two months ago, but it took me a while to grasp “Beholden to Nothing and No One” in its entirety. The 14 tracks demand the full attention of the listener, otherwise they are not more than nice background […]
