Canadian post-black metal entourage Numenorean left a deep and long lasting impression with their 2016 debut release Home.

Where the full length Delain records have always impressed me, the EPs were of a different caliber. Does Hunter’s Moon break this cycle?

Long before the day was finally there, this night’s show has been Sold Out! Being the only Dutch show during this long tour, I wasn’t surprised about this fact. Headliner Behemoth has become immensely popular the past few years and the ‘support acts’, aren’t the smallest bands in the bunch either.Promoting their latest album ‘I […]
