  • Black Messiah – Walls Of Vanaheim

    With a career starting in the early nineties, German folk/pagan metal band Black Messiah can be seen as a part of one of the ‘older generation’ the genre. Any fan of the genre probably knows at least the live ‘hit’ songs ‘Irminsul‘ and ‘Sauflied‘. The band’s masterpiece however, is the record First War Of The […]

    It’s time to strap on your wooden leg and eyepatch, get out a bottle ‘o rum and practice your best screechy pirate voice, because the pirate metallers Alestorm have docked with their fifth full-length No Grave But The Sea.
