The Theater Equation

When it comes to music, I’m a sucker for a good story in a record. Combined with the rest of the music, it puts me in this special mood setting in which I can feel the story. One of my favourite records in this is Ayreons “The Human Equation”. When I heard that a theatre show was in the makings, my heart skipped a beat and I knew I needed to attend this.. Read all!

Revenge song premiere – ‘Silent Enemy’

Nothing tastes better than sweet revenge and the Canadian death/black metal outfit Revenge prove that with their upcoming effort Behold.Total.Rejection.

When you think of misantrophic black metal, a band hailing from Canada doesn’t spring to mind right away. Yet this group is perhaps able to outdo most of the extreme metal acts out there. How do they do this you ask? By being uncomprosising, both in music and lyrics.

Revengine song premiere

Therefore we are glad to present to you the Revenge song premiere of ‘Silent Enemy‘ of that upcoming record. So buckle up and be prepared for a true assault on the ears, brought to you by the sharp vocals of Vermin, the hellish blast beats of J.Read and the infero of raw riffing! This is what ultimate revenge sounds like.

Incubate 2015

Autumn may be upon us, but some of refuse to accept the downward spiral of the suns’ rythm. Set in the deep and darkened forests of Oisterwijk (near Tilburg, NL) a special three day festival of black metal of various forms was organized, as part of the larger Incubate 2015 festival. The venue is called ‘The Natuurtheater’ which is a fitting setting for a black & death metal evening in nature. This may well be the last spasm of the open air plays of this year, but hell, a spasm with a kick!.. Read all!

Beyond The Gates 2015

I don’t think there’s one metalhead, worldwide, who doesn’t regard Norway as one of the metal capitals worldwide. Much of the extreme musics’ history, owes a major debt to the Norwegian scene, that during the years has produced a really big pile of now world-famous names. It’s not a metal history lesson, so I won’t repeat what hundreds of sources wrote before, I’ll just say that it’s obligatory that Norway would at least have one good extreme festival in it.

So guess what? It doesn’t have only one. It has a buckload of ’em, from Inferno festival, through the now deceased Hole In The Sky, to Blastfest , to the recent Midgardsblot fest and, of course, Beyond The Gates. Read about that last one here!

Solarfall 2015

In an otherwise peaceful and rather quiet part in the upper North Western reaches of the Netherlands, a killer line-up indoor festival was held on Saturday the 12th of September. With a billing consisting of Impaled Nazarene, Thulcandra, Saille and some local talent, Dystopia, Doghouse Gallows and Ancient Monstrosity, most extreme tastes were covered. Besides that, Mother did the cooking! .. Read all!
